The Kerala State Eligibility Test (SET) Exam 2013 was successfully concluded on 16th June at various centres across the state. More than 30,000 candidates had appeared for the exams held in 2013.
LBS which are in charge of conducting the exam have published the answer keys of various subjects in their official website. As per information available from the LBS website, the Kerala SET exam results will be published on 1st August 2013.
The State Eligibility Test (SET) is being conducted every year to make sure the standards of teaching in Higher Secondary schools run by the Government of Kerala. Those candidates who wish to get selected as Higher Secondary School Teachers and Non-Vocational Teachers should have to pass the exam with stipulated pass mark.
As the mark is a compulsory requirement for appointment as Higher Secondary School Teachers in the State, students used to take much care in preparation for the exam. The scheme of the SET exam is divided into two papers. Paper 1 is common for all candidates with questions focusing on General Knowledge and Aptitude in Teaching.
On the other side Paper II contained questions based on the subject of specialisation which the candidate had studied at his/her Post Graduate (PG) level. Each candidate could choose one from a selection of 37 subjects given which he/her had studied for the PG.
Effective from the 2013 exam, negative marking was avoided. With two papers, the duration of the test did consist of 120 minutes for each paper. The objective type based question paper had choices like A, B, C, D.
As per rule, candidates had to select and mark their response in the suitable space which was provided in the OMR Answer Sheets. A candidate should have to score at least 35 percent of marks for Paper I and Paper II separately and also at least 50 percent of the aggregate marks of Paper I and Paper II to get eligibility for the SET certificate.
From 19th June, the Kerala Set Paper I and Paper II answer key with solutions of Set A, Set B, Set C and Set D is available at the official online portal of LBS.
