CBSE Teachers Eligibility Test (CTET-2014) was conducted recently in Andhra Pradesh region and this came up with shocking results. The performance of teachers in the test was not up to the mark. This proves that the graduates in B.Ed. are not fit to teach the CBSE students of class 6th to 8th.
It is revealed from the test results that the teachers were trained in pathetic quality of the institutes and this would adversely affect the students they would tutor in the future.
CBSE Teachers Eligibility Test is the eligibility test for recruitment of teachers with CBSE or NCERT syllabus. Kendriya Vidyalaya, Central government schools, Navodaya Vidyalaya, etc. follow the CBSE syllabus. These schools recruit teachers on the basis of their performance in CTET.
