B.Com students can appear for TET, B.Ed

Union ministry of human resource development on Tuesday issued a circular to National Council for Teachers Education (NCTE) making B Com-B Ed students eligible for appointment as a teacher in government schools. Earlier, on August 23, 2010 NCTE released a circular specifying that a person with BA/BSc-B Ed with 50% marks is eligible to appointment as a teacher. The circular had excluded persons with B Com-B Ed qualified for appointment as a teacher. This decision had created an uproar in the country, including Rajasthan. This order will make thousands of B Com graduates eligible for teaching jobs in government schools.
