It will not be easy to become a school teacher in certain subjects in class 9th to 12th in Bihar. For example, computer science in higher secondary schools and social science for secondary schools are subjects where the number of candidates passing the qualifying examination is much higher than the number of vacancies announced. For example, the total number of vacancies in social science stream in secondary schools is 5425, while the number of STET pass candidates for 2011 and 2019 is 82692. There can be 15-16 candidates in line for one post in this subject.
There will be challenges in many subjects
In secondary classes, the most difficult challenge will be in Science, Mathematics, Hindi and Urdu. More than four times 21198 against 5425 vacancies in Science, 20796 against the same number of posts in Mathematics, more than three times against 2839 posts in Sanskrit, 6180 STET candidates can compete. 10305 STET candidates can be eligible to take the exam for 5486 posts in Hindi.
Being a Teacher in Computer Science Will Be Challenging
Similarly becoming a teacher in class 11 and 12 only in computer science will be challenging. There will be fierce competition in this. In this, the number of STET qualified candidates is 18142 while the vacancies are less than half of that at 8395. In fact, all the candidates (employed teachers) who have passed STET in the years 2011 and 2019 have been considered eligible by the Bihar Public Service Commission for the post of school teachers. Because of this the challenge has increased.
Competition is less in higher secondary, but there is more possibility of vacancy
STET pass candidates will be less as compared to vacancies of main subjects in class 11th and 12th. Because of this, it is considered easy for talented candidates to get jobs. For example, Botany has only 1427 against 2738 vacancies, Chemistry has 1491 against 4799 vacancies, Physics has 822 against 3022 vacancies, Sociology has only 622 STET candidates against 1434 vacancies.
