CTET 2019: Important instructions
Admit card: Do not forget to carry your admit card and photo ID at the examination venue in any case. CBSE is strict with its policies and they would not allow anyone to appear for the paper in case they forget it.
Prohibited items: There are few items which are not allowed inside the hall such as mobile phones, pagers or any other communication devices. Carrying the same will lead to disqualification of the candidates
Examination venue: In order to avoid confusion and save time, check the address of your examination centre a night before. Leave your house on time. It is always better to reach the venue half-an-hour before rather than reaching late.
