Shristi Kirti 16th Oct, 2019

Hello Abhya,

Since it is clearly mentioned in the CTET 2019 notification for the December exam, that no request for change of medium will be entertained under any circumstances, you will have to take the test in that medium only which you have opted. Try and make it happen, if not you may appear again in CTET 2020 June session and choose your medium wisely.

Ashish pal Student Expert 4th Oct, 2019

Hello Mahboob.

You are asking an incomplete or improper question.

As of now Aadhar card is mandatory in most of the exams similarly for CTET you have to fill your Aadhar card also and talking about is it valid or not. If you fill up your correct details in the form then it is of course valid.

Ok good luck
