New Delhi: After the release of the Answer Key and OMR Sheet Images by the Central Board of Secondary Education (CBSE), more than seven lakh candidates, who had written the Central Teaching Eligibility Test (CTET) exam held on September 20, 2015, are now waiting for the declaration of results.
"Though delayed by almost a month, it was good to see the official Answer Key and OMR Sheet Images of the CTET September 2015 exams on the CBSE-CTET website", Usha M, a candidate said while talking to ummid.com.
Usha had earlier expressed her displeasure over the delay in the release of the Answer Key for the CTET September 2015 exam.
The Central Board of Secondary Education (CBSE) released the official Answer Key and OMR Sheet Images on October 21 for the 2015 exam held on September 20.
The candidates are now anxious to know their result. But, as usual the CBSE is totally silent about the actual date of declaration of the results.
If the reports taking round in the media are to be believed the results of the CTET Sept 2015 Exam will be declared on or before October 30. However, without a confirmation from the CBSE, candidates are confused and puzzled.
"In 2014, the CBSE was quick and very fast in releasing the Answer Key and also the results. This year it is too late", another candidate said.
Last year the CTET 2014 exams were held on September 21 and the CBSE had released the answer key on September 30, 2014 - within ten days of the exam. The results were declared on October 8, 2014.
Until the CBSE comes with an official announcement, the candidates have no option but to check the CTET website every morning to see if there is any news regarding the CTET September 2015 exam results.
Qualification in CTET or TET (Teacher Eligibility Test ) conducted by states is mandatory for candidates to be appointed as teachers for class I to VIII in government schools. CTET is conducted twice every year by the Central Board of Secondary Education (CBSE).
The Ministry of Human Resource Development, Govt. of India has entrusted the responsibility of conducting the Central Teacher Eligibility Test to the Central Board of Secondary Education Delhi.
The validity period of CTET qualifying certificate for appointment is seven years from the date of declaration of its result for all categories.
A total of 7.5 lakh candidates appeared for the CBSE CTET September 2015 exam held at 959 centres in India and abroad.
More than 1,600 independent observers were deployed by the Board at the examination centers apart from Board's officials at each center all over the country to ensure smooth and transparent conduct of examination.
