CBSE has revised the last date of filling the CTET 2021 application form to October 25, 2021. It further said that the last date to pay the CTET application fee is October 26, 2021, till 3:30 PM. The CTET 2021 December session is going to be held from December 16, 2021, to January 13, 2022.
Also, the correction facility for candidates who wish to make changes in the CTET application form can be done from October 28, 2021, to November 03, 2021. However, once the window is closed, the candidates won’t be allowed to make any changes to the application form.
In addition to this, the board has also tweaked the basic CTET eligibility and now candidates who have a Post Graduation degree with a minimum of 55% marks and a three year integrated B.Ed and M.Ed degree are now also eligible to apply for the CTET December 2021.
Another crucial announcement that CBSE has made with the CTET notice is that a new examination centre has been created at Leh to help the candidates belonging to that region appear for the examination. These four key announcements have been made with a view to making the CTET 2021 December session easier for the candidates.
CTET or Central Teacher Eligibility Test is a qualifying test for candidates who aspire to work as a teacher in KVS, Navodaya Schools or any private or government schools in India. The validity of the CTET 2021 certificate is also been increased to a lifetime from the 7-year limit that was decided earlier.
CTET exam is conducted to grant teaching certificates to candidates willing to teach at two levels i.e. Primary and Upper Primary. CTET Paper 1 is held for Primary class (Class 1 to V) and Paper 2 is held for Upper Primary (Class VI to VIII). The exam is going to be held in the CBT mode from this year onwards and their candidates can choose to appear for both papers at one time. Paper 1 is going to have questions from Child Development and Pedagogy, Language I, Language II, Mathematics, and Environmental Science. Each section will be held for 30 questions and the total number of questions will be equal to 150. Paper-II is also going to have 150 questions however it will have 30 questions each from Child Development and Pedagogy, Language I, Language II, and 60 questions from either Mathematics & Science or Social Science. A duration of 2 hours and 30 minutes will be given to complete Paper 1 and 2.
