Candidates appearing for CTET 2020 should know all the choices and career prospects available to them after CTET 2020. Every CBSE looks forward for CTET Certified teachers owing to the mandate passed by Supreme Court in May 2012. The mandate clearly directs that the teachers appointed in any CBSE Schools should be CTET qualified.

CBSE conducts Central Teacher Eligibility Test (CTET) for the recruitment of Teachers for Primary and Secondary levels. The qualified candidates are certified as Class I to VIII teachers ready-to-be-recruited in government Schools:

  • Kendriya Vidyalaya
  • Navodaya Vidyalaya and others.

The Exam is conducted in two panels for Class I to V teachers and Class VI to VIII Teachers. Over passing years, the popularity of CTET has grown manifolds and private schools affiliated to CBSE and other boards are looking forward to hiring CTET Certified teachers.  Check CTET Exam Pattern

There are in total 1300 KVs, 961 NV and over 63 Tibetan Schools across the nation who hire only CTET certified teachers. However, the vacancies available in such schools are not more than 5000 collectively. CTET is taken by more 20 lac people while only 10% (1 lac) aspirants qualify. The competition in CTET is thus very tough (100,000 candidates for 5000 posts) especially considering CTET is just one of the criteria.  Check CTET Cut Off
