Sir,I have completed master degree and B.Ed in English,but not pass Set exam.Can i apply for HSST?
Alex George said…

Unless you have 10 years teaching experience in High School (or passed JR or NET), I am afraid you cannot apply for HSST post with current qualifications.

For those having just PG and B.Ed, only exception allowed according to Kerala PSC notification 246/2017 is given below.

"The teachers who have completed 10(ten) years of approved teaching service at the High School level in the General Education subordinate service shall be exempted from passing the State Eligibility Test for Higher Secondary School Teachers."
