All About CTET And State TETs In India

 

CTET is The Center Teacher Eligibility Test and TET is Teacher Eligibility Test, while both the exams are taken by the teaching assistants to apply for teaching jobs for primary school from classes 1st to 5th and Elementary school from classes 6th to 8th there is a slight difference between both the exams.  

CTET is conducted by CBSE, the central Board of Secondary Education. Candidates who aspire to be teachers at central government-run schools such as Novodaya Vidyalaya Samiti (NVS) and Kendriya Vidyalaya Sangathan (KVS) anywhere in India take the CTET exam. The exam is conducted twice a year and there are two papers, paper 1 for candidates wanting to teach primary schools and paper 2 for aspirants wanting to teach elementary school students. TET on the other hand is conducted by the state government to fetch teaching jobs in state-run public schools. Teachers who take TET are not eligible to take jobs in central schools such as KVS and NVS, whereas a CTET test taker can apply for the state-run schools.
