Hello readers, I know you all have been waiting for CTET for a long time but I have a good news for you!. Finally, there are talks that the Central Board of Secondary Education (CBSE) will soon release the notification for Central Teacher Eligibility Test (CTET). Various news reports suggest that the exam will be conducted either in the last week of May or first week of June 2018.

It has also come to light that the syllabus of CTET is being changed and this is one of the core reason for the delay in the exam. CBSE has given the authority to National Council for Teacher Education (NCTE) to upgrade the syllabus. All the new changes in the exam will be confirmed by CBSE through the official notification only.


CTET was held 2 years back in the year 2016. For Paper I, which is held for class 1 to 5 teacher, 2,32,443 candidates registered. While for Paper II, for class 6 to 8 teacher, the number of registered candidates was 4,74,513.

Out of these, 1,93,005 candidates turned up for Paper I and 3,86,085 for Paper II. The number of qualified candidates for the primary teacher was 26,638 and the same for the elementary teacher was 42,928. Due to which, the total pass percentage in the CTET Paper I was 13.8% and in Paper II it was 11.12%.

Hence, we can see that CTET is not an easy exam to crack. It is expected that due to the gap, the number of candidates registering for CTET 2018 will be high. The pass percentage is expected to remain the same but if the syllabus or the selection process will change then the pass percentage will also vary.

CTET is conducted by CBSE to determine candidates eligible to be a teacher in primary and elementary classes. The candidates who clear CTET becomes eligible to apply for the teaching position for classes I to VIII. It is a multiple choice exam. The candidates who wish to teach in class I to V will have to appear in Paper-I and the candidates who wish to get selected as the teacher for class VI to VIII will have to appear for Paper-II. Those who intends to be a teacher for both levels will have to appear in both the papers.

There will be two part of this exam, Part-I and Part-II. The Part-I and Part-II contained 150 questions each. Each question in the exam will be of 1 marks.

So guys, we all know that the delay in the exam is not beneficial for anyone but you all have to be patient and wait for the official notice. Till then start your preparation according to the previous syllabus and drop all your queries in the comment section below.
