DSSSB Notification, Vacancy & Cut Off

Teachers are sacred beings that guide and propel us towards awakening all the unique potentialities that lie within us. 

This is something that very few of us understood while we were still in our early teens. 

All that mattered then was to have a good time at school, enjoying with our classmates and making childish jokes and puns at our class teacher.

Do you remember your times as a school student?  

I remember mine. I used to have a mathematics teacher in my school called Mrs. Khanna.

She was a very strict disciplinarian and whenever she used to come to class, the entire class used to become absolutely silent and still. No one used to utter a word. 

She was an excellent teacher, but her only so-called flaw was that she spoke with a lisp. 

So, after the class, the moment she used to leave, most of the students would erupt into a session of laughter and jokes about her lisp. It used to be utter pandemonium. I used to feel sorry for her. 

After a few years, we were in our senior secondary days. All the students had finally entered the later part of their teenage years.

Those days we were all preparing to upgrade our scores in order to gain admission into the respective colleges of choice.

One day when I went to Mrs. Khanna to ask about some of my doubts in her subject, I saw several students waiting near her office waiting to get her signature on their letters of recommendation.

They were the same students that used to make fun of her lisp until only some years ago. That day an important insight dawned on me. It was that: 

Only when we grow mature enough to recognize our dreams in life, do we start viewing our dear teachers with the respect they deserve.

We are all a bit selfish like thataren’t we?  

Anyway, I personally always used to hold my teachers in high regard, and my respect for teachers grew deeper still after I decided to become a mentor myself. 

So, with that, I would like to ask you. Do you want to become a teacher yourself?  

Do you have what it takes to inspire young minds and guide them towards their destiny?  

If your answer to both these questions is yes, then I want to remind you that it is not an easy job.

The profession of teaching school children might seem easy to an outsider, but being a teacher is no cakewalk, I assure you.

It takes patience, a high level of emotional intelligence, a clever mind, and a whole lot of creativity.  

If you think you have these traits in you, you can become an exceptional teacher, oh yeah, I forgot, you also need a graduation degree.

All those thoughts about the glory of teaching made me slip the last bit there, sorry.

So, if you want to be a teacher and in case you want to teach in the schools of Delhi specifically, you should consider appearing for the Delhi Subordinate Services Selection Board (DSSSB) exams.

This article is all about the 2020 DSSSB Notification, DSSSB Vacancy 2020 and DSSSB Cut Off. So, let’s begin. 

2020 DSSSB  Notification for TGT & PGT (Exam Date postponed till further notification) 

The DSSSB recruitment 2020 notification had been released in the month of January 2020 by the DSSSB.

The notification contained announcements about the DSSSB teacher vacancy 2020, namely 2539 for PGT and 1539 for TGT.

The opening date for applying online for the exam was 24th January 2020 and the closing date was 23rd February 2020. 

From the 23rd February onwards, no new notification has been released, most probably due to the onset of the COVID Pandemic and the subsequent lockdowns.

Yet aspirants have been logging on to the official website of the DSSSB to check for updates. The DSSSB vacancies 2020 notification was available in PDF Format on the website itself.  

It was good news for most aspirants when the DSSSB Notification 2020 had first come out, as it had announced the release of such a large number of vacancies.

The news of a greater number of seats held the hope of a greater chance of getting selected in the minds of aspirants.

However, the pandemic decided to play the spoilsport in all of this.  

Also, due to the ensuing lockdowns because of it, all further updates about the exam had to be stalled.

As of now, the dates of the PGT/TGT written exams have still not been announced in any further DSSB notification.

I have been periodically checking the DSSSB website for further notifications of the same.

Rest assured; you will be updated through my website the moment I receive any news of the aforementioned exam dates.

DSSSB Notification 2020 Available in PDF Format

Now that you have an idea about what the pattern of events is in a DSSSB notification, I’ll now go over to writing about the vacancies mentioned in the notification. 

2020 DSSSB Vacancies – 2539 for PGT and 1539 for TGT 

Remember Mrs. Khanna, my mathematics teacher, she was a PGT teacher. Teachers can be PGT or TGT level.

To be eligible for the PGT post, one needs to be a postgraduate in his respective subject. For the TGT post, a graduation is sufficient.

If you want to know about the DSSSB eligibility criteria in detail, you can read this blog of mine. Now, let me ask you another question. 

Do you know how these vacancies are created? 

DSSSB Vacancies

Well, it’s mostly because the most senior teachers retire after a certain age and those seats are left vacant.

Some teachers leave their jobs to work in some other profession because you know, teaching is not an easy job, as I had mentioned earlier.

A lot of vacancies also come up when new schools are made, or the government is looking to expand on its workforce.  

Having said that, let us look through the DSSSB vacancy 2020 notification in the broken-down form.

I have listed below the vacancy from the DSSSB vacancy 2020 notification for PGT and TGT posts, and also revised vacancies for 2019 PRT & Nursery teachers posts.

They are all listed according to subjects and categories.

I think that the tables above were self-explanatory, given that you are reading my blog and are already acquainted to the concept of reservations and categories. With that, I will now move over to the next section which is the DSSSB Cut off. 

DSSSB Cut Off

Till now I have talked about the 2020 DSSSB notification and DSSSB vacancy, I’ll now go over to the topic of DSSSB cut off. 

Do you know what Cut Offs are?

DSSSB Cut Off

Let me explain with the help of an example that is a wee bit scientific in nature. I hope you don’t mind.

So, exam cut off marks are a lot like something called escape velocity.

Escape velocity is a commonly used term among the scientists and engineers that design rockets.

It is the minimum velocity that a launched rocket needs to reach in order to be able to escape the earthgravitational influence.

If the rocket isn’t able to attain this velocity, it will not be able to escape the earth’s atmosphere and enter space.

Similarlythe cut off marks of any exam. You need to score the minimum cut off marks in order to be able to clear that particular exam.

If you can’tyou don’t make it through. See, it was easy to understand wasn’t it? I knew you’d get it. 

In this section, I shall talk about the DSSSB cut off marks that you’d need to score above, in order to become a teacher.  

I have also listed down the previous years’ subject-wise DSSSB cut off marks for PGT, TGT Computer Science, and TGT. 

Also, along with the previous years’ DSSSB cut off marks, I have also listed the expected 2020 DSSB cut off marks for the aforenoted posts. 

These lists will help you get an idea of how you’d need to prepare and also draw your study plans accordingly.
