Application for new recruitment of teachers and replacement is ongoing for both primary school teachers and secondary school teachers. The deadline for application is next month, July 12th.

Teachers Service Commission has shared a list showing how the marks will be awarded during interview. According to the report, Teachers with first class honours will be awarded 40 marks, those with second class lower and upper division will be awarded 35 marks and those with pass will be awarded 30 marks.

For Diploma holders, those with distinction will get 40 marks, credit are awarded 35 marks and those with pass are awarded 30 marks.

Those with evidence that they are currently in internship are awarded 30 marks hence boosting their possibility of being recruited, this is unlike previous years where they were awarded 10 marks.

For those who graduated in 2015 and years below that they will get 25 marks, 2016 will be awarded 20 marks. 2017 and 2018 graduands will be awarded 15 and 10 marks respectively. Those who graduated 2019 and beyond are awarded 5 marks. Best wishes to all applicants.

Here is the score sheet that will be used by TSC during 2021 employment for Secondary school teachers

SCORING AREAS MAXIMUM SCORE

Degree (BED)

First class 40 Marks

Second Class 35 Marks

Pass       30 Marks

Maximum Score 40

From above, it is evident that there is no clear cut between those who have scored second class upper division and second class lower division. They have all been generalized into one category and awarded similar marks which seems obnoxious. This will disadvantage those who have higher qualifications when it will come to employment.

EVIDENCE OF INTERNSHIP SERVICE 30 Marks

This is the area that has really disturbed many applicants as the commission has decided to award intern teachers more marks than expected. This has been perceived as one way of the commission keeping its word of confirming intern teachers in their respective stations.

  1. This move by the commission has been received with both happiness and sadness at the same time, but it has disadvantaged those teachers who graduated earlier bit did not go for internship. This 30 marks is too much and something must be done to restore equity in the commission’s hiring process.
