About CTET Exam

Central Teacher Eligibility Test (CTET) is a national level examination conducted by the Central Board of Secondary Education (CBSE). CTET is conducted twice a year to determine the eligibility of candidates for appointment as teachers. Qualifying this examination lays down the minimum qualifications for a person to be eligible for appointment as a teacher for classes I to VIII.

The rationale for including the TET as a minimum qualification for a person to be eligible for appointment as a teacher is as under:

  1. It would bring national standards and benchmark of teacher quality in the recruitment process;
  2. It would induce teacher education institutions and students from these institutions to further improve their performance standards;
  3. It would send a positive signal to all stakeholders that the Government lays special emphasis on teacher quality.

CTET Exam Notification
