State TETs

State Teacher Eligibility Test: Like CTET, the other state also conducts the TETs for the teacher selection process for state government schools. To be eligible for State TETs, a candidate must follow the guidelines as per the norms laid down by NCTE. Eligibility for one state TET may differ from the other State TET. However, a state government can also consider the CTET if it decides not to conduct the State TET.

National Eligibility Test – NET

The National Testing Agency (NTA) has been entrusted by the University Grants Commission (UGC) with the task of conducting UGC-NET, which is a test to determine the eligibility of Indian nationals for ‘Assistant Professor’ and ‘Junior Research Fellowship and Assistant Professor’ in Indian universities and colleges. UGC-NET is conducted twice every year. Due to postponement of December 2021 UGC-NET in view of COVID-19, the schedule of June 2022 UGC-NET has been delayed. In order to regularize the UGC-NET examination cycles, the National TestingAgency (NTA), with the concurrence of UGC, has merged both UGC-NET of December 2021 and June 2022 (merged cycles), so that they may be conducted together in CBT mode.
