Over 1,200 Candidates Fail To Clear Deled In Four Attempts | Allahabad News

PRAYAGRAJ: A whopping number of over 1,200 candidates pursuing Diploma in Elementary Education or DELEd (formerly known as BTC), would not be able to fulfill their dream of becoming a teacher in primary and upper primary schools of the state after failing to clear the course though they were given four attempts to do so.
Results of DELEd were declared by the Examination Regulatory Authority, UP on August 11. As per norms of DElEd training, if a candidate fails in a subject, he/she gets a maximum of three chances to clear it and failing to do so means having to give up the dream to bag DElEd tag. “As an exception, over 2,000 candidates who had failed in their respective semester exams for the third time were granted a fourth out-of-ordinary attempt on special permission from the director of State Council of Educational Research and Training (SCERT), UP Sarvendra Vikram Bahadur Singh.
This fourth attempt came after the affected candidates held a protest in Lucknow in March-April 2022, requesting for one last chance and yet over 1,000 of them failed to clear the exam,” said an official of the Exam Regulatory Authority (ERA), UP . Most of these trainees enrolled in different colleges of the state have failed in Mathematics and English subjects, the official added.
A scrutiny of the result reveals that out of 1,627 trainees of DElEd 2017 batch, 386 have failed for the fourth time. Similarly, out of 1,998 trainees of DElEd 2018 second semester, 819 have failed. Likewise, two out of seven trainees of BTC-2013 batch’s third semester, six out of 23 and 10 out of 30 trainees of 2015 batch second and third semester respectively have also failed for the fourth time.
There are 12 out of 55 trainees of BTC 2015 Batch fourth Semester also who could not pass even on the fourth attempt. As a result a total of 1,235 candidates failed to clear their semester exams in the fourth attempt as well across UP, the data shows.
The DElEd is a two-year diploma program for candidates aspiring to be a teacher in primary and upper primary schools. The examination and evaluation of the candidates are done in four semesters to prepare them to teach students from classes 1-8. At present, DElEd course is offered by around 3,087 private colleges, 67 government-run district institutes of education and training (DIETs) and one CTE in Varanasi in Uttar Pradesh.
