CTET - Start your career as a teacher

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

Central Board of Secondary Education Delhi (CBSE) has been given the responsibility of conducting the examination.


i. The CTET shall apply to schools of the Central Government (KVS, NVS, Central Tibetan Schools, etc.) and schools under the administrative control of UT’s of Chandigarh, Dadra & Nagar Haveli, Daman & Diu and Andaman & Nicobar Islands and NCT of Delhi.

ii. CTET may also apply to the unaided private schools, who may exercise the option of considering the CTET.

iii. Schools owned and managed by the State Government/local bodies and aided schools shall consider the TET conducted by the State Government. However, a State Government can also consider the CTET if it decides not to conduct the State TET.


1. The Validity Period of CTET qualifying certificate for appointment will be seven years from the date of declaration of its result for all categories.

2. There is no restriction on the number of attempts a person can take for acquiring a CTET Certificate. A person who has qualified CTET may also appear again for improving his/her score.

Qualifying the CTET would not confer a right on any person for Recruitment/ Employment as it is only one of the eligibility criteria for appointment.
