The Central Teacher Eligibility Test (CTET) will be held on January 31, 2021, CBSE has said today. The Central Board of Secondary Education (CBSE) had earlier scheduled the exam in July, 2020 and later postponed it citing administrative reasons.
In order to benefit candidates and maintain social distance, CBSE has also decided to increase the number of cities where the exam will be held. Earlier the exam was planned to be held in 112 cities whereas now it will be conducted in 135 cities.
The CBSE has allowed candidates to change their option of city from which they wish to appear for the exam. The option to change exam city will open from November 7 and candidates can exercise their options till November 16.
"Every effort will be made to accommodate candidates in the cities opted by them but if the situation arises, they can be allotted any city other than the four cities opted by them," CBSE has said.
The new exam cities are Lakhimpur, Nagaon, Begusarai, Gopalganj, Purnia, Rohtas, Saharsa, Saran, Bhilai/ Durg, Bilaspur, Hazaribagh, Jamshedpur, Ludhiana, Ambedkar Nagar, Bijnor, Bulandshahr, Deoria, Gonda, Mainpuri, Pratapgarh, Shahjahanpur, Sitapur and Udham Singh Nagar.
CTET is held twice a year, in July and in December. CTET is the only recruitment test that the CBSE conducts in addition to Class 10, 12 board exams.
The notification for the December edition exam is usually released in August-September.
CBSE notifies updates related to the CTET on the official website ctet.nic.in.
