In accordance with the provisions of sub-section (1) of Section 23 of the RTE Act, the National Council for Teacher Education (NCTE) vide Notification dated 23rd August 2010 and 29th JULY, 2011 laid down the minimum qualifications for a person to be eligible for appointment as a teacher for class I to VIII.  It had been inter alia provided that one of the essential qualifications for a person to be eligible for appointment as a teacher in any of the schools referred to in Clause (n) of section 2 of the RTE Act is that he/she should pass the Teacher Eligibility Test (TET) which will be conducted by the appropriate Government in accordance with the Guidelines framed by the NCTE.

The rationale for including the TET as a minimum qualification for a person to be
eligible for appointment as a teacher is as under:
1.     It would bring national standards and benchmark of teacher quality in the
recruitment process;
2.     It would induce teacher education institutions and students from these
institutions to further improve their performance standards;
3.     It would send a positive signal to all stakeholders that the Government lays
special emphasis on teacher quality

CTET Eligibility 2019 is laid down by CBSE both for Paper 1 and Paper 2. The basic
a requirement is to have passed senior secondary or graduation with minimum of 50%
aggregate marks and relevant teacher training program.
  • CTET 2019 will be conducted on July 7, 2019, in offline mode. Candidates must check CTET Eligibility before applying CTET 2019
  • There are two papers of CTET- Paper 1 and Paper 2.
  • Paper I is to become a teacher for classes I to V while Paper II is to become a teacher for classes VI to VIII.  
  • A person who intends to be a teacher for both levels (classes I to V and classes VI to VIII) will have to appear in both the papers (Paper I and Paper II).
  • Candidates scoring 60% or more marks in the exam will be considered as TET pass.
