The Central Board of Secondary Examination (CBSE) will hold the Central Teacher Eligibility Test (CTET) on January 31. The exam will be held across 135 exam cities. The number of exam cities and centres has been increased to ensure candidates have to travel least and are able to practice social distancing during the exam. Over 30 lakh candidates are expected to appear for the exam.
Following the rules, it would be a must for the candidates to appear on the reporting time as mentioned on the admit cards. The candidates will have to undergo checking verification and entry will be staggered due to the COVID-19 pandemic, hence, it is more critical to appear for the exam well in advance.
Admit card: Candidates will have to bring a copy of CTET admit card 2020 with them to ensure verification and authentication. The admit card should have the correct image. Further, the spelling on the admit card of the name of the candidate, exam, exam centre, etc should be correct. In case of any error, candidates should raise the concern with authorities.
What is must carry, what is banned: Apart from admit card, candidates will also have to carry their identity proof. This should be a govt-approved id such as Aadhaar card, driving license, voter id etc. Candidates will also have to bring their own water bottle for personal use, mask, sanitiser, gloves etc. No candidate will be allowed to take any communication device inside the exam hall.
Passing marks: To clear the exam, the candidates need to secure 60 per cent marks out of 150 marks. For reserved category candidates, the cut-off is 55 per cent which comes to around 82 marks out of 150. Those who clear the CTET will be eligible to seek a job as a teacher in CBSE affiliated schools. Candidates who pass the part-I exam will be eligible to teach in classes 1 to 5 and those who wish to teach in classes 6 to 8 will have to clear part-II.
