Also, the marksheets and eligibility certificates will contain an encrypted QR code to enhance security. This code can be scanned and verified using the DigiLocker mobile app.
Candidates who clear the CTET will be eligible to apply for recruitment as teachers of Classes 1 to 8 in schools under the central government and schools under the administrative control of union territories in India. The CTET is held in 20 Indian languages twice a year.
The 14th edition of CTET was initially scheduled to be held on July 5, 2020. But the test was postponed to January 31, 2021 due to administrative reasons. The test was conducted at offline exam centres in 135 cities to maintain social distancing and prevent overcrowding amidst the Covid-19 pandemic.
