The UP BTC examination was cancelled all over the state recently due to paper leak in Kaushambi.
UP BTC Paper Leak
The Uttar Pradesh Basic Training Certificate (BTC) examination for the fourth semester of the course was scheduled to be conducted from 8th to 10th October 2018. However, on 7th October (night), all the seven papers were circulated through WhatsApp. The papers were cross-checked and confirmed to be the same by the concerned officials. And, consequently, the examination was cancelled.
UP BTC Exam Re-Scheduled
Now, the UP BTC exam for the fourth semester will be held from 1st to 3rd November 2018.
After a long strike by BTC students for rescheduling the exam and extending the date of UP TET examination, the state government has agreed upon their demands. Consequently, the BTC exam has been rescheduled from 1st to 3rd November and the Uttar Pradesh Teacher Eligibility Test (UP TET) 2018 has been rescheduled on 18th November.
