The Central Board of Secondary Education (CBSE) has announced that it will soon release the exam city information slips and admit cards for the candidates who have registered for the Central Teacher Eligibility Test (CTET) 2024 January examination. The exam is scheduled to be held on January 21, 2024, across various cities in the country.
The exam city information slip will provide the details of the assigned exam city for each candidate, which will help them plan their travel and accommodation arrangements in advance. The admit card will contain the complete information about the exam date, timings, examination center and instructions for the exam day. Both the documents will be made available on the official website of CTET, ctet.nic.in, prior to the examination date.
According to the CTET 2024 information bulletin, the admit card is expected to be issued three days before the exam, i.e., on January 18, 2024. Candidates will be able to download their admit cards using their login credentials, such as application number and date of birth. Candidates are advised to check their personal details on the admit card and report any discrepancies to the CBSE immediately.
The CTET 2024 exam will be conducted in two shifts, with the first one from 9:30 am to 12 pm and the second one from 2:30-5:00 pm. The exam will consist of two papers, Paper I and Paper II, each of 150 marks and 150 minutes duration. Paper I is for candidates who intend to teach classes I to V, while Paper II is for candidates who intend to teach classes VI to VIII. Candidates who qualify the CTET exam will be eligible to apply for teaching jobs in central and state government schools.
The CTET exam is conducted twice a year, usually in July and January. The last CTET exam was held on July 23, 2023, and the results were declared on August 15, 2023. The CTET certificate is valid for seven years from the date of declaration of the result. Candidates can appear for the CTET exam as many times as they wish, as there is no restriction on the number of attempts.
