CTET Notification to be released in March

By: R Chandrakala on February 07, 2018

Central Board of Secondary Education is most likely to release the much anticipated Central Teacher Eligibility Test notiication in the month of March. CTET 2018 Examination may be held in the month of May or June this year after a gap of 2 years. The Ministry of Human Resource Development, Government of India has given the responsibility of holding the CTET Examination to CBSE, Delhi. 

CTET Accepting Institutes



The Right to Education Act has mandated that an aspiring teacher should pass the Teacher Eligibility Test conducted by the appropriate Government as per the guidelines framed by National Council for Technical Education. The Council had also earlier laid down in a notification the minimum requirements for a person to be eligible to be appointed as a teacher from Grade 1 to 8.

An official had told the newspaper that the delay in notification had been caused on account of changes being applied to CTET Syllabus and the process is expected to conclude this month. 

CTET would be held only one year

An official had told Press Trust India last April, CTET would be held only once a year instead of the practice wherein it is held twice a year. 

As per a senior official, given that numerous other competitive examinations are held only once a year and the efforts undertaken to hold this examination another time quite reduce the seriousness of the candidates, eliminating the fear of wasting a year. 

Any notification released that states that CTET would be held in the month of July, are unauthorized statements that have been made. CBSE has disavowed itself from any such notifications that have been released. 

Candidates are strictly advised to visit the CBSE Official Website for latest updates on CTET Examination. 

The basis for including TET as a minimum qualification for a person to be eligible for appointment as a teacher is presented as below:

  1. This would bring national standards and benchmark of teacher quality in the recruitment procedure.
  2. Inducing teacher education institutions and candidates from these institutes to improve their performance standards
  3. Send a positive signal to all the stakeholders that the Government wants to emphasize Teacher Quality.

The teaching aspirant must pass the TET held by the appropriate state in accordance with the guidelines framed by NCTE.

The Ministry of HRD has entrusted the responsibility of conducting CTET to the Central Board of Secondary Education.
