Hey guys !!!
How did the exam go?
According to initial reactions, we are hearing the same things of the past – Less Time, Too Many Questions, Lengthy questions, etc. We at TETGuru are really surprised by the repetitive nature of these reactions because one of the key aspects of being a teacher is to be able to manage time and multi-task. Maybe other than your knowledge, the CTET is another way of judging whether you can do that as well.
Given how much focus CBSE is laying on comprehensive & continuous evaluation, teachers at CBSE schools are always on their toes to conduct, evaluate numerous assignments, tasks, project work etc each day other than conducting their regular classroom work. The way we look at it is that if you are complaining now with the CTET exam, what will you do if you become a CBSE school teacher?
By the way, there is no profession where things are easy and served to you on a plate while you sit and idle. So, get real, stop complaining and start preparing the right way. If not this year, maybe you can start early for the next CTET.
By the way, many schools are now asking their teachers who have joined post 2010 to clear CTET within five years. This is especially true in South India. So just imagine the load on these teachers – they have to prepare for CTET along with their regular school work. WOW !!! Salute to you guys !!!
So on – TETGuru wishes you all the best.
With just 1 day to go, its time to relax and feel confident that you have done your best.
Do not feel overwhelmed or come under pressure by the CTET as its just another examination. After all, life has sterner tests without even announcing a result at times
So, take it easy, relax – Here’s a short story for you about Gita. Many of you might identify with her -

All the best,
We are proud to inform that our TET students have improved their scores by 18% after registering with our Study Programs. How have you been performing?
With less than 5 days to go for CTET Nov 2012, we wanted to share some tips on how to improve your score by the following techniques -
1) Attempt less number of questions but attempt them correctly. You should try to maximise the number of correct answers rather than try to attempt all questions. You can do this by not attempting questions you are unsure of and leave these for the end. Spend a little more time in getting correct answers on the questions you are confident of getting correct. Remember, the golden rule is to minimize silly mistakes.
2) Spend time on revising course content for your weaker subjects. If you are doing very poorly in core subjects like Mathematics & Env. Studies, then its time to be serious. You will not be able to clear CTET if you are weak in both these subjects. You should spend time each day on revising material in Mathematics & Env. Studies and then at the end of the day appear for a TETGuru test.
3) Review answers after each test &know the right answers. After each TETGuru test, you should spend time on reviewing answers and checking why your answer is wrong. Try to understand the correct answer and if required, make a note. You should spend the last week before CTET revising these notes.
4) Do group preparation with friends. Get your friends who are appearing for CTET to prepare together. Any group study always helps in improving performance. If your friends are not registered on TETGuru, share your account with them or ask them to register for a new account. This way, you can compare, compete and improve as a group.
Finally, remember the most important rule. Be confident, calm and cool while appearing for the exam. One of the key reasons why the most prepared candidate fails to clear competitive exams is because they become nervous. TETGuru helps you to prepare for the actual exam. So, every exam you take with TETGuru, think as if this is the actual TET exam. This way you will always be ready.

The Central Board of Secondary Education (CBSE) will be conducting its second Central Teacher Eligibility Test also known as CTET in November 2012. The first exam was attended by almost 8 lakh candidates out of whom only 14% managed to pass. One of the key reasons why so many candidates failed this exam was that they were not prepared to answer 150 multiple choice questions (MCQ questions) in 90 minutes and was compounded by delays in distributing the pen and paper question papers in different test centers.
This alarming state of affairs has led the Ministry of Human Resource Development, Govt. of India which entrusted the responsibility to CBSE to make this a bi-annual event and introduce host of other improvements to ensure that quality and efficiency of testing is not compromised.
One of the significant changes will be that CTET2012 will be offered as an online as well as offline exam. By making this examination online, CBSE hopes that candidates will not only apply their knowledge but also train for speed and accuracy. Candidates will have the flexibility of choosing their test center as well as the exam date. Furthermore, CBSE will be offering a discount in exam
fees as incentive for CTET candidates to shift to an online mode. Candidates will also be able to switch between multiple languages during the exam itself.
In order to train candidates for taking online tests, CBSE will be putting sample web based CTET practice tests on its website. Candidates will also have the option to use private test preparation platforms such as the one hosted by TETGuru.com, which is one of the leading players in the online test preparation for CTET and regional TETs. TETGuru.com brings lots of practice tests of the highest quality that provides you feedback to keep improving & preparing for TET success.
