The UP assistant teacher recruitment exam was conducted on 6 January 2019 and the answer key was released on 10 May, 2020. Following the exam, the government had increased the eligibility cut-off to 65 percent from 45 percent for general category and from 40 percent to 60 percent for reserved category candidates.
However, many aspirants had objected to the change. The government maintained that this has been done to ensure quality teachers make through and a subsequent High Court ruling gave a final judgment in the government’s favour.
