Teachers will be recruited, not subjects, in high school
UP Board has amended the qualification of TGT Bio but this subject is not taught at the high school level. UP Board had abolished Biology at high school level even before the year 2000. Due to this, Uttar Pradesh Secondary Education Service Selection Board had canceled the recruitment of TGT Biology 2016 on 12 July 2018. The then Board Secretary Neena Srivastava had also sent a proposal to amend the qualification. But the qualification was not amended and later on the orders of the High Court, the selection board had to conduct the TGT Biology examination.
