CBSE to keep application process open

 The Central Board of Secondary Education, which will conduct the Central Teacher Eligibility Test on November 18, has kept the application process open for possible corrections that registered candidates may want to make from October 8 to 19.

CTET has been a concern area for CBSE because of its failure rate. In the first edition, about 86 per cent candidates failed and in the second edition, the number went up to 94 per cent.
One of the major reasons for this is the minimum pass percentage of 60 to qualify the exam.
According to some news reports, CBSE had said that 8.38 lakh candidates registered for the third edition of the exam. This number is 20 per cent less than 10.58 lakh candidates who appeared in CTET in January.  

The first CTET was conducted in June 2011 with over seven lakh candidates appearing for it.According to new rules, from the 2013-14 academic session, CBSE schools across the country will recruit teachers who have cleared CTET.
