The state government order for the 69,000 vacant posts of assistant teachers in primary schools, was issued on December 1, 2018 while the post was advertised on December 6, 2018. A day after the examination on January 7, 2019 the passing criteria was revised making 65% (97 out of 150 marks) from earlier 45% for general candidates and 60% (90 out of 150 marks) from earlier 40% for reserved category candidates.

On May 6 2020, the Lucknow bench of Allahabad high court upheld the state government’s decision to raise the cut off, and set the ball rolling for recruitment of 69,000 assistant teachers in the state.
