"The arrangement of the CBSE conducting NET and CTET is likely to continue till the proposed National Testing Service (NTS) is set up by the government for the conduct of all exams," he further added.
The examination is an eligibility test for teachers (Class 1-8).
The Board has been mentioning about the burden with conducting multiple examinations in a year. Recently the Board has proposed of conducting the eligibility test for assistant professors, National Eligibility Test (NET), only once a year.
Following consultations among officials from the CBSE, the HRD Ministry and the National Council for Teacher Education (NCTE), it has been decided that CTET should be conducted only once, the official added.
Regarding NET exam, the official stated that, "The proposal of conducting NET once is in a very nascent stage. No decision has been reached on it yet.".
