Central Teaching Eligibility Test 2019The Central Board of Secondary Education will conduct the 12th edition of the Central Teacher Eligibility Test (CTET) on July 7, 2019. Apply online by March 5.

About the test:

In accordance with the provisions of sub-section (1) of Section 23 of the RTE Act, the National Council for Teacher Education (NCTE) vide Notification dated 23rd August, 2010 and 29th JULY, 2011 laid down the minimum qualifications for a person to be eligible for appointment as a teacher for class I to VIII.

It had been inter alia provided that one of the essential qualifications for a person to be eligible for appointment as a teacher in any of the schools referred to in Clause (n) of section 2 of the RTE Act is that he/she should pass the Teacher Eligibility Test (TET) which will be conducted by the appropriate Government in accordance with the Guidelines framed by the NCTE.

The rationale for including the TET as a minimum qualification for a person to be eligible for appointment as a teacher is as under:

  • It would bring national standards and benchmark of teacher quality in the recruitment process;
  • It would induce teacher education institutions and students from these institutions to further improve their performance standards;
  • It would send a positive signal to all stakeholders that the Government lays special emphasis on teacher quality
