is there problem if my institute pin code is wrong after the correction in ctet

Animesh Vats Student Expert 25th Mar, 2020

Hi,

Well if you still have the option of correction then do correct that otherwise if not then I do not think that it will create that much of a problem, your pincode being wrong in the details section. Just talk to the authorities once about this.

I hope my answer helps.

All the best.

Good evening, I cleared my CTET PAPER 1 in the year 2015.. I have been placed in a Diocese school. Should I write CTET once the validity period is over or qualifying one time is enough... Plz let me know.

Yastika Kumar 4th Mar, 2020

Hi catherine,

There is no upper limits in the number of attempts a person could take for the CTET but yes they do impose validity period for CTET certificate which is seven years from the date of their issuence. So no need arises for you to appear again as your certificate is valid till 2022.
