The Central Board of Secondary Education (CBSE) might release the official notification for the Central Teacher Eligibility Test (CTET) in March. The delay in notification was due to the changes applied to the syllabus of CTET. There were some other changes including the test to be conducted annually instead of bi-annually. The process would be completed by the end of this month.

The responsibility for conducting the CTET was handed over to the CBSE by the Ministry of Human Resource & Development. According to RTE Act, it is mandatory to qualify the Teacher Eligibility Test to become a teacher.

According to a senior official, conducting a major competitive exam requires massive resources. Since all the other major exams are conducted once a year, the CTET or NET should not be conducted twice. Also, this will increase the seriousness of the exam as there will be the fear of wasting a whole year.
Last year, some fake notifications were released by unauthorized websites. CBSE clarified that no such notifications were released. The board asked the candidates to visit the official website of CBSE, www.cbse,nic.in, and CTET, www.ctet.nic.in, for all the updates.
