If teaching is your passion, then clearing CTET is now mandatory to give your teaching career a head-start, especially in a Central Government school. Also, leading private schools and institutions prefer CTET qualified teachers for recruitment.
Central Board of Secondary Education (CBSE) conducts the Central Teacher Eligibility Test (CTET) exam biannually in February and September. It is through the CTET Exam that the Government is trying to ensure a national benchmark for the quality of teachers being recruited. This will also help improve the teaching standards in schools across the country. This year the exam will be held on 16th September 2016.
Lakhs of teaching aspirants appear for CTET but only a few clear the exam with the required 60% pass score. With the competition being so intense, landing your dream job can be difficult. Unless you’re equipped with a CTET preparation platform that gives you an edge above the rest. Do not be one of the lakhs of aspirants who go in for the regular courses available everywhere.Opt for TalentSprint’s digital preparation programs that are exclusively tailored to help you not just clear the CTET exam in your first attempt but also achieve a high score.
If you are eligible to take the exam, make sure you understand the concepts well. The questions will check your understanding of the concepts and not just your ability to memorise facts. The exam will be objective in nature and will have multiple choice questions. There are two papers in all. Paper I is for teachers intending to teach Classes I to V with 150 questions for 150 marks covering Child Development and Pedagogy, Mathematics, Language I and II and Environmental Studies.
Paper II is for teachers planning on teaching classes VI to VIII. Again the paper consists of 150 questions for 150 marks covering Child Development and Pedagogy, Language I and II, Mathematics and Science or Social Studies & Social Science.
As there is no negative marking you can confidently attempt all the questions. Also, remember that your score will be valid for a period of seven years from the date on which the results are declared. If you are not satisfied with the score you secure, you can always opt for giving the exam again. There is no restriction on the number of attempts.
