(Alert) CTET Exam will be conducted only once per year

Central Teacher Eligibility Test (CTET) will henceforth be conducted only once a year. Contrary to the old practice of conducting the examination twice a year, the Central Board of Secondary Education (CBSE) has decided to conduct the same only once. "When all major competitive exams are conducted once a year, why CTET or NET should be conducted twice? They are massive-scale exercises which require massive resources and in a way reduce seriousness of candidates since the fear of wasting a year isn't there," a senior official told PTI.

"The arrangement of the CBSE conducting NET and CTET is likely to continue till the proposed National Testing Service (NTS) is set up by the government for the conduct of all exams," he further added.

The examination is an eligibility test for teachers (Class 1-8).

The Board has been mentioning about the burden with conducting multiple examinations in a year. Recently the Board has proposed of conducting the eligibility test for assistant professors, National Eligibility Test (NET), only once a year.
