The Central Board of Secondary Education(CBSE) will soon release the results of the Central Teacher Eligibility Test(CTET) on its official website ctet.nic.in. The exams were conducted in December-January. It is expected that the results will be announced by February 15, 2022. The registered candidates can check their results by using their login credentials as mentioned on their respective admit cards.
If past-year date records are analyzed, it can be observed that CBSE takes around 23-27 days for announcing the CTET results. That means results are likely to be announced between February 13-17, 2022. So, by calculating the average of dates, February 15, 2022, is the most likely date for CTET 2022 result announcement.
Steps to check CTET 2022 results
Candidates can go through the following steps to check the results, once the results are announced –
Step 1: Visit the official website of CTET at ctet.nic.in
Step 2: On the homepage, click on the link that reads “ CTET Results 2022”.

Step 4: The result appears on the screen where you can check the marks obtained in each subject as well as the total score.
Step 5: Download the result for future references.
Candidates from unreserved categories have to secure a minimum of 60% marks i.e. 90 out of 150 to be eligible to get the CTET qualified certificate. As per the notice issued by CBSE, concessions may be granted to candidates who belong to other reserved categories by government or private schools. The qualified candidates can download their eligibility certificate in digital format from the DigiLocker app using the credentials provided to them in their registered mobile numbers after the registration. The eligibility certificate which has been recently made valid for a lifetime can be used by the candidates to apply for various teaching positions across the country.
Candidates can check the cut-offs of the last two years for the CTET exam in the table given below –
|Name of Category||CTET 2019 Cut Off||CTET 2018 Cut Off||Expected (2022)|
|OBC (Other Backward Class)||82.0||85||82-85|
|SC (Scheduled Caste)||80.0||80||80|
|ST (Scheduled Tribes)||80.0||80||80|
|EWS (Economically Weaker Section)||82.0||87||82-89|
The CTET examination was conducted from December 16, 2021, to January 13, 2022, in different shifts. Hence, the difficulty level of all the question papers might vary, and evaluating every paper, in the same way, will make the results unfair. So, CBSE has come up with a normalization process to ensure that the marking is fair and just. The normalization process takes into account the difficulty level of each question paper along with external factors like negative responses to award deserving ranks to all the candidates without any variation because some papers were difficult. This process makes sure that all the candidates are placed at deserving positions in the rank list. At the moment, the board has not made the formula available to the candidates.
CBSE had earlier released the final answer key after considering the challenges raised to the draft answer key. The final result will be based on this answer key and is tentatively scheduled to be out on February 15, 2022.
