Adopting the principle of `Safety first, exams later` during the ongoing coronavirus crisis, the Central Board of Secondary Education (CBSE) has decided to conduct the Central Teacher Eligibility Test (CTET) examination on January 31, and allot candidates examination centres located near their houses.
The candidates across the country appearing for these exams would be issued admit cards next week.
The CTET examination was to be held in July 2020 but owing to coronavirus, it was continuously delayed. For the convenience of the candidates, new CTET examination centres have been created in 23 more cities.
According to the CBSE, all the candidates appearing in the examination would be provided with the admit cards as well as information of the examination centres by next week.
Union Education Minister Ramesh Pokhriyal Nishank said that the prestigious CTET exam conducted by the CBSE would now be held on January 31 keeping in mind the ongoing Covid-19 pandemic….
