Government Dungar College, Bikaner, Rajasthan, has announced the tentative date for the Pre-Teacher Eligibility Test (PTET) 2021. Accordingly, the exam is likely to be conducted on September 08, 2021. Admit cards for the same are likely to release 10 days prior to the exam, preferably by August 29, 2021. Only those candidates who have successfully registered for the exam can download their admit cards from the official website ptetraj2021.com. Candidates who qualify this exam can pursue either the 4-year integrated B.Ed. course or the 2-year B.Ed. course depending on their eligibility.
Previously, the Rajasthan PTET 2021 examination was scheduled to be held on May 16, 2021. However, due to the COVID-19 pandemic, the exam was indefinitely postponed. Even the registration deadline was extended to July 07, 2021. Now that the second wave of COVID-19 has stabilised, various competitive exams are being held across the country. In light of this development, authorities decided to release the tentative date for PTET 2021 examination. If there are no disruptions, the exam will be held on the decided date itself.
Candidates who qualify this selection test can pursue one of the two courses depending on their eligibility. The first one is a 4-year B.A. B.Ed. or B.Sc. B.Ed. course. Candidates must have passed Class 12 to apply for this integrated programme. The second one is a 2-year B.Ed. course. This is for candidates who have already completed their graduation in a relevant field.
After the PTET 2021 examination, a counselling process will take place for shortlisted candidates. They will be assigned a college or institution on the basis of various parameters. These include merit, faculty, category, teaching subjects, college preferences, etc. No college will be allotted on the basis of district or any other grounds except under certain provisions. Certain relaxations will also be applicable in case of reserved categories.
Since PTET 2021 is a competitive examination, there is no set or pre-decided syllabus. However, the intellectual capacities of candidates will be judged based on a broad outline of subjects. These include Mental Ability, Teaching Aptitude & Aptitude Test, General Awareness and Language Proficiency (English or Hindi).
Each subject section will comprise 50 objective-based multiple-choice questions (MCQs). Students will get a total of 3 hours to attempt the entire paper. Finally, each correct answer will be allotted 3 marks. However, in case of Teaching Aptitude & Aptitude Test, each question will carry a weightage of 3, 2, 1 or 0 marks. Since the exam will be conducted through the OMR-based offline mode, candidates are expected to darken the circle of correct option using a ballpoint pen.
