duration of 2½ hours. All 150 questions carry 1 mark each. There is no negative marking for any questions. Both CTET and TET examinations have two papers which will determine the classes that the candidates will conduct.

However, the major differences that occur after appearing for the CTET or TET examinations depend on the kind of government schools candidates will be offered positions at. Candidates who have appeared for the CTET examinations will be offered jobs in schools that are run by the Central Government alone, while the candidates who have appeared for one of the State TET exams will be offered jobs in the specific state government-run schools.
