The Central Teachers Eligibility Test (CTET), which is conducted by CBSE, has been postponed, according to Union Human Resource Development Minister Ramesh Pokhriyal Nishank on Thursday.
On Monday, CBSE said that the new dates will be notified soon. "All candidates registered for CTET July 2020 examination are again informed that the exam scheduled for 5th July, 2020 has been postponed. The next date will be notified later," CBSE said on Twitter.
The exam was supposed to be conducted on July 5.
Nishank posted a copy of the letter by the CBSE proclaiming the same on his official Twitter handle.
"The 14th edition of the CTET-July 2020 scheduled to be held on July 5, 2020, is postponed," the letter issued by the CBSE read.
It added that the next date of examinations will be intimated when the situation is more conducive for them to be held.
Earlier today, the Central government submitted before the Supreme Court that the remaining class 10 and 12 CBSE exams, which were earlier rescheduled to be held between July 1 to July 15 in view of the COVID-19 pandemic, have been cancelled.
