Only 16% Pass CTET Jan 2012


Time isn’t running that great for teaching aspirants; 94% of the applicants who took CTET (Central Teacher Eligibility Test) January 2012 couldn’t get 60% marks to get through the test. Mere 16% 0f 900,000 test takers managed to get through, the Paper I and Paper II tests are for primary and secondary teaching positions respectively. Both papers are for 150 marks each, a candidate has to secure 60% to be considered CTET qualified, however SC/ST/OBC or PH candidates may get exemptions from Government, Local Bodies, Government aided and un-aided Schools.

Next CTET will be held in June 2012, the number of test takers are increasing session by session and year by year however the results are bleak. This isn’t any different from last year CTET when only 14% has managed to qualify the test.

Is it time for teachers to up their skill and knowledge to be able to teach in Schools? Share your views!

    second clear it and undergo a rigorous training
    then clear ctet
    then give commission..keep studying,,,appearing,,,and never become working…spend whole life studying..

  8. Hi, I am Shikha. I also qualified CTET IInd paper with 107 marks but I have not received my Score card, certificate or anything from CBSE. The CBSE official whom I contacted in this regard says that Internet printout is valid if I don;t get the certificate…….
    These people are so cheap and shameless. They are irresponsible crooks who are sitting there to loot the unemployed people like us.These exams have become a joke.It was decided that these exams will be conducted twice an year-in January and June….What is the use of conducting it twice if there is no vacancy? On one hand posts for teachers are vacant in every state, on the other hand they are making money but no job!!!They conducted CTET 3 in May??? No information, notification……rubbish…Now we feel ourselves like cheated…..

    • it wasn’t ctet 3 in may!it was ctet 2 for daman diu and chandigarh candidates!which was postponed due to elections.get ur facts right and keep urslf aware!it is everywherre on the net and ctet website!

  11. I gave 2nd paper, and i too qualified it. englsh hindi qns were child like.. while psycho paper was an area where i think people mi8 hav struggled. any 1 can revise those subject qns by matching syllabus with school textbooks!! afterall it didnt have negative marking too.

  12. I too have qualified both CTET PAPER I AND PAPER II. But there is no hope to get jobs. But in Tamil nadu they have announced that TET qualified candidates will be appointed. Is there any difference between teacher eligibility test conducted by the Central and State. As per RTE teacher should have qualified TET what is the difference between CTET AND TET Officials of Nodal Agency please think about this and guide us.

  13. Sir,

    • sir i have scored 69% marks in ctet exam i have not received my marks memo of ctet exam what should i do? please tell me. i have given my friend’s mail id.

  15. HI all I got 85.34% in the ctet bt dint get any call from any of the school so far can i get any of them plz write to me…….

    • Arjun first of all congrats for qualifying ctet exam but I don’t know what is the policy of govt. till yet they have organized two ctet exams but still there is not a single vacancy from anywhere. I have qualified ctet in june2012like this my one year validity lost without any reason. what i feel there is no coordination between different organization like cbse board, kvs, nvs and others. cbse is making money exam by exam and still no vacancy. we unemployned youths r wating and wating and wating this is our life. I really got frustrate of these organizations who r using unemployeds for makeing money. 1st ctet gave around 1,00,000 hopes 2nd ctet gave around 54,000 hopes then what next again 3rd ctet. what should we do neither we r fail nor we r successful.

    • keep it that certificate with u and wait for another notification of ctet exam. cbse board is making money from unemployeds youths. there is coordination between nvs , kvs and cbse. I feel so.

  16. usha :
    I got 62.67% in 1-5th level, and 64.67% in 6-8th level in obc category . please inform me about the vacancy by e-mail

    who told you that 100- 94 is 16?
    and again do not thin k that passing this exam is every thing about teaching, you have to be a teacher by mind before being a teacher in papers.
    any how i got 71% in CTET JAN 2012

  17. I sat for paper 2 and I hav qualified , but dont know wat to do next. I want to work in KV but there is no news of recruitment

  18. I got 60% marks in CTET second paper 6-8, if there is any possibility for me………………………

    when they are releasing vacancies.?

  19. i have qualified both paper in first ctet and i also apply 2nd paper this time but not get 60% marks. i have questions for cbse why they not providing vacant position??????????????????????????????

    • mam let thm give chance tu those 16%who hv got above 60….there is nthng fr any one either passed or failed


  21. As many view that CTET useless because they are not able to clear it…if someone has done a B.Ed course from a good institution ar has any esteemed degree from a reputed University and is sincere its very easy to secure 60% marks…it is very easy to get 100% result from the students by any means and if CBSE is liberal with students it is not that they will be liberal with teachers as well…there is one saying of 'sour grapes' it aptly applies to them.

  22. Please let me know how the recruitments would be there for CTET qualified candidate, as for 2011 qualified candidate there is no symptoms for selection, and next CTET is in pipeline in June 2012, what the hell they are doing with us.

    please clear when the vacancies are open for the same…..

    • keep waiting 3rd ctet bhi ho jayega aur aap aur hum dekhte reh jayenge aur koi job nhi aayegi. I am june 2011 ctet qualified. mein intezaar kr raha hun aap bhi kijeye.

  23. if cbse has firmly decided to follow the present pattern of questions to judge the standard of teachers, then the pass percentage in each paper must be 45%.What is the use of rigorous training period of B.Ed ? Let us put our full time for CTET and stop waste of money,time in B.Ed,Teachers training etc.

  24. Mr. CHHEL BIHARI i m not qualify ctet but i m not unsatisfied with
    i think in your sight every test is wrong because you do not qualify
    in ctet check your mental ability , time manegement , thinking and power of decision making so i give you a suggestiom change your mentility

  25. this ctet qualification is useless. wat about b.ed or m.a b.ed this qualification is enough to be a teacher.

  26. So I request to CBSE that teachers are not unable to teach in the school but the way of judging is not proper. By taking a exam CTET no one can judge the quality of a teacher when the same teacher is giving 100% result in the school with many of students scoring more that 95% marks in his subject so how can some body say that if CTET is not clear by a teacher than he is not fit for this job. I am giving every year 100% result with atleast 10 students scoring 100 marks in my subject(Mathe). But I could not clear CTET in I attepmt so My management should consiedr me to replace………………………………………………………. so funny.

  27. It is not the case that teachers are unable to get 60% marks in the CTET exam but the case is time alloted and no of question which is very difficult to a person to get scoerd the 60% marks. I score 89 out of 150 it means for one mark I have to appear next time is tottaly unreasonable when we can give and CBSE itself says that the student who are getting 28 or more than that but below 33 should be given 33 marks. when CBSE is so liberal for the students why not for the teachers. Another thing question paper is so confused and difficult that which can not be finished within 90 minutes by anyone not even by a expert of paper setting. We can consider it a sourses of income from the teachers becouse each teacher is paying 500/ every time when ever he is appearing.
