A person who scores 60% or more in TET will be considered TET pass.

Earlier, several other exams have also been postponed in various parts of the North-East in the wake of unrest in the region over the Citizenship (Amendment) Bill or CAB.
Meanwhile, footballer turned politician Bhaichung Bhutia on Thursday said the Citizenship (Amendment) Bill was against the "interest" of the indigenous people of Sikkim as well as article 371(F) of the Constitution which grants special status to the state.
Mr Bhutia, who is the working president of Hamro Sikkim Party (HSP) asked the state's ruling Sikkim Krantikari Morcha (SKM) and the opposition Sikkim Democratic Front (SDF) to explain their alliance with the BJP after the latter rejected their concerns on the Citizens Amendment Bill passed by Parliament.
