Inorder to determine whether the degree is genuine, the University listed on the certificate is contacted.
Teachers who have been deregistered
Another reason for disqualification during interviews is teachers who have been deregistered, most likely owing to dismissal from the service or professional misconduct.
Incase of Possession of Two TSC Numbers
Those teachers who have two TSC numbers are also disqualified during the recruitment exercise. The two two TSC numbers comes after applying for another TSC number after being deregistered owing to professional misconduct.
One Not Meeting Minimum Requirements

The names that are appearing on all certificates must be consistent. If different names appear on ones certificate, the applicant will be disqualified.The teacher is required to submit a deed poll to justify the change of names.
