Here are five things you need to know before applying for the teacher entrance exam:
Exam mode: The exam will be conducted in December in Computer Based Test (CBT) mode. It will be operated in 20 different languages across the country. In 2021, in the first-ever online CTET, several candidates experienced technical difficulties and exams were canceled during one of several shifts. However, CBSE will continue with the online mode, as it “will likely motivate futuristic teachers to become computer literate and also avoid the waste of paper from printing question papers and OMR sheets,” it said.
Syllabus: CBSE had changed the syllabus last year and is likely to follow suit this year. The exact syllabus will be released along with the notice. “This was done in order to imprint better content and pedagogical testing material. Thus, a revised syllabus will assist in assessing the candidates’ understanding of teaching the subject, the candidates’ pedagogical content knowledge, the knowledge relevance of the subject in the school curriculum, questions on assessing the planning of teaching learning experiences, and assessment methods that specific to the concept. ”
