I sat for Chiphen Rigpel TOT selection test

Chiphen Rigpel is a big ICT project in Bhutan by NIIT. It has an ambitious goal of training five thousand teachers and setting up computer lab in every school across the country. Read more on this in MoE website. To kick start the project it needs to set up a core group of 50 members from among teachers. The announcement was floated on the website, which many missed- I nearly missed too if not for my brother in-law. On 12 October the list of applicants were shown on website and were called for selection exam today.

Surprisingly I was not there in the list. In fact no one is there from my school though we all filled up the form and sent. Upon inquiry we realized the our application went missing somewhere on the way. Nobody to blame. Thank god, MoE gave us (me and Mr. Kailash Shongben) the chance to sit for the test today.

Technical paper (1 hr) and Aptitude test (30 min)- it was fun doing exam on something you know quite well. Of course I don't mean the Aptitude test; it had simple questions that could fool a complex man. But I have done well.

Ask me if you wish to try out the Aptitude Test, I can publish the questions...I think it is set by NIIT.


  1. Good luck Sir.....best wishes.....

  2. Didn't know of such a test. But you say, it was only for teachers.

    Good that you did well.

  3. Yeah Kuenza, it is just for Teachers...to train fellow teachers for next five years.

    Thank you Pema, i did it great, though I did 5 aptitude questions wrong out of 20.

  4. I am happy to share that I passed the test. 40 out of 100 applicants were selected. 20th December we are to report in Samtse College of Education for training.
    I was expecting the training will happen in some IT centers in India but looks like it is going to be just like any other IT projects in Bhutan- use what you have! Lol

    Hope there is internet connection in SCE!

  5. sir m also goin 2 sit 4 de exam very soon..but m little bit nervous about the question pattern and what kind of questions will be ask in Aptitude test...so can u suggest me some tips for it la...your response will be apperciated..
