The Uttar Pradesh Teacher Eligibility Test (UPTET) was initially supposed to be conducted on 22nd December 2019 but now would be conducted on 08th January 2020. The exam date was delayed due to the internet ban after agitation against Citizen Amendment Act (CAA) in several parts of the State.
The Department of higher education has released the notice to declare the holiday on 08th January 2020 to the principal of all degree colleges. The notification for the holiday has been released to deal with shortage of examination centre, if any, to conduct the UPTET exam.
The arrangements would need to be made due to the postponed of the exam dates of Uttar Pradesh Teacher Eligibility Test- UPTET. The official website to get more details is http://upbasiceduboard.gov.in/ .
According to the words of Amit Bhardwaj who is joint secretary of state higher education department, “Holiday has been announced in all the degree colleges coming under the department in view of the UPTET 2019 which is scheduled on 08th January 2020.”
