  81. with out notification why need to study yar.
    after notification two months time will give by TRB
    that time is enough to get qualified in TET. i am not sure about job.
    last time many are upset ,got above 90 marks and waited for job.
    finally got jobs only less people that to 1st paper was very too much some people got above 75% also not getting job.
    this time rules has to be change. based on post availability release the results and give job to them. unnecessary don't make problem again.
    we have seen last time many were involved in strike and even some persons got attempted for suicide. that is my opinion . good people will take decision.

    suggestion can give any one if that is good for People.

    all The best who are preparing for TET 2016.
