The significance of previous year question papers of CTET

It is critical to solving at least past 5-year papers of CTET. This is because it helps one understand what sort of questions come in the exam, and prepare for them. There are several books and question banks. However, nothing comes close to the actual papers.

Study NCERTs chapters, questions, and solutions

As prescribed in the CTET syllabus, subject matter shall be from NCERTs. Hence it is important to study everything from NCERTs well. At the same time, it is important to do questions as direct as well as implied and pedagogy based questions will come in all subjects.

Practical methods and implementation

All subject papers have pedagogy related questions. In order to be a teacher, one must have an understanding of how to teach, and methods. You can score in these questions by improving your grasp over practical methods and their implementation.
