JAIPUR: Rajasthan Board of Secondary Education (RBSE) completed organizing Rajasthan Eligibility Examination for Teachers (REET) on Sunday in which more than 15 lakh students appeared.
RBSE officials on Sunday evening announced that the exams were conducted peacefully in which all the state machinery was involved.
REET exam coordinator Meghna Chaudhary said that all the state departments coordinated with each other and made this examination a success. On Saturday, in the morning and evening, around 7 lakh students appeared and on Sunday, in both sessions, around 7.5 lakh students appeared.
Police officers and reserve police force were posted on every exam centre to prevent any form of mischief. The OMR sheets of REET exams conducted were transported to the REET office in the respective district.
Some candidates however complained that they were not allowed inside the exam centre as they were late due to traffic and rainfall. Cabinet Minister Pratap Singh Khachariyawas on Sunday expressed displeasure on this.
He said, “I agree that there is a time to enter the exam centre and they have called students an hour before the examination, but why can’t candidates enter after the exam starts. If the time is less, then let the student face the consequence. I will talk to the education minister and strict action will be taken against the officials who should have considered the rainfall in the city due to which traffic was a hurdle for the students. In Rajasthan University the students are allowed even after the exam begins.”
