Super Tet | Opportunity to Become Assistant Teacher in UP

There are lots of misconception when it comes to Super tet. Some people call it, an exam to get selection as a teacher in UP primary and Junior Government schools. But, in reality this super tet exam is a qualifying exam like UP tet but the only difference is that in the final merit for the selection of teachers UPTET plays no role but in the final merit super tet has a weightage of 40%.

Super TET is an exam conducted by UP Basic Education Board to appoint qualified graduates for the post of Assistant teachers at the primary and secondary levels of Government schools in Uttar Pradesh.

This Super Tet exam is recently introduced to introduce transparency in the selection procedure of teachers in Uttar Pradesh.  The Ministry of Education, conducts Super TET exam whenever they introduce teacher’s vacancy in UP If you are one of the interested candidates to be a teacher of UP then you should start preparing for Super tet according to the latest syllabus of super tet as per the board and wait for the official notification to be published. 

It is always recommended to prepare with the previous year question papers to know more about the exam pattern and difficulty level.

Best Books for Super TET Books For Primary (1 to 5 Primary)

There are lots of books available in the market that claims to be the best for preparing for super tet exam. But for me Arihant, Speedy and UP Government primary school books worked really well. You should finish Primary level books first and then move to Arihant and then Speedy. I recommend you, not to be complete dependent on the books but you should make your own notes from books and YouTube channels for Super tet.

How to Prepare for Super Tet?

You just need 3-4 months to crack super tet. Follow my blueprint that I used while preparing for super tet and you’ll start gaining confidence of your own. I combined YouTube and Books but managing time is important especially if you have a limited time left for the exam. 

Start preparing for GS as this is the key of super tet exam. You can use any books for Indian geography and history. Most of the people don’t know what comes under GS and how to prepare GS syllabus. I recommend you to solve last 5 years of UPPCS papers as 80% of the GS comes from there.

I used Ghatnachakra books for solving old PCS papers and this helped me a lot as they also provide useful information just below the question.   Now, lets come to Hindi, English and Sanskrit. These languages have a weightage of 40 marks out of 150 questions. You should focus on Grammar area of all the three subjects.

For Hindi you can buy Surya Publication book and solve grammar questions that has arrived in previous state exams. For reasoning and computer, you don’t have to worry much. 10 marks are allotted to these two subjects and trust me its not worth it to devote extra time for these two subjects. 6 out of 10 questions will be easy and for 4 marks, you don’t have to allot 2 hrs daily.

You can utilize the same time to prepare other subjects. You should work on Current Affairs just 15 days before the exam. Current affairs have nothing to understand. You just remember the facts and names to get good marks in this subject. Last 6-7 month’s current affairs are most important and you can buy any book from the market but I personally used Speedy.

Which is the Best Super Tet Coaching Institute?

There are many good coaching institutes in North India if you are willing to work hard but I personal recommend to take coaching from Delhi, Lucknow, Allahabad and Kanpur. According to the previous results, the institutes from these places performed good.

Best YouTube channels for Super Tet Preparation

Again, there are hundreds of YouTube channels that provides the coaching for supertet that claims to be the best for the exam. But before taking admission in a YouTube channel, make sure they are at least 6 months old with a good no. of enrolled students.

Don’t forget to take a few demo classes before taking the paid membership. I have seen lots of new channels taking advantage of YouTube platform and scam lots of students.  I recommend Target with Alok and Chandra Institute YouTube channels for preparing for super tet exam. These YouTube channels have 5-6 experienced teachers and they are really good for Government job preparations.

Crack Super TET in First Attempt

If you want to crack super tet in your first attempt then you should start preparing for it like you are preparing for a Civil service exam. Make a strategy to cover all the official syllabus and have at least 1 week time left of the revision before the final exam. Super tet exam is not that easy exam and one should give his 200% to be eligible for a Gov teacher in UP.

Super TET Admit Card

You can download the Super tet admit card from the official website or you can click here to download your super tet admit card. You need to enter your registration number and date of birth and click on generate. You should always check the name and other personal details printed on your admit card.

Super Tet Answer Key

Candidates can download the official super tet 2021-22 answer key from the official website after a few days of the exam. But as we all know there are some good super tet institutes that releases unofficial answer keys on YouTube channels and websites.

You can refer those answer keys to check your super tet questions as you’ll find around 90% accuracy with them. I know being an aspirant its not easy to wait for a few days for the official answer key. You should always check unofficial answers key to settle your mind.

Super Tet Result

Super tet result usually announced one month after the official answer key. But sometimes it may take just 2 weeks for the result if the Government is in hurry to recruit Assistant teachers.
