THERE were chaotic scenes arising out of the massive mismanagement by the West Bengal Board of Primary Education during the recruitment exam of primary teachers held on Sunday across the state.
From wrong information about the test centres on the candidates' admit cards to less number of seats at the examination centres, there was no end to mismanagement. Adding to it, the transportation woes also hit the candidates who reached their examination centres quite late, some even fell off from crowded buses hurting themselves.
Over forty-five lakh candidates applied for the recruitment exam called Teachers' Eligibility Test (TET) for nearly 35,500 vacancies in the 59,000-odd state-aided primary schools in Bengal. The examination being conducted at 6,500 centres across the state started around 1pm, but many students could not reach their respective centres on time complaining gross management.
