No, completing a Hindi Pandit course alone wouldn't make you eligible for the CTET (Central Teacher Eligibility Test) 2024. To be eligible for CTET, you typically need to have a Bachelor's Degree in Education (B.Ed.) or be in the final year of a B.Ed. program.

  • Candidates must have a B.Ed. degree with Hindi as one of the school subjects in the B.Ed. program.
  • Candidates must have a B.Ed. degree and a graduation degree (like B.A. or B.Sc.) with Hindi as a major subject.

Yes, you are eligible for the TGT (Trained Graduate Teacher) post for the Social Science subject with your qualifications. The minimum qualification for TGT posts typically requires a graduation degree with at least 50% marks in the relevant subject and a B.Ed. degree. You have an M.Com which fulfills the graduation requirement. While your B.Ed. is in Accounts and Commerce methods, having cleared the CTET Paper II in Social Science demonstrates your eligibility to teach the subject.

CTET acts as a national eligibility test for teachers. Clearing CTET with Social Science in Paper II specifically qualifies you to teach that subject at the TGT level.

No, it might not be possible to choose a different exam center for your CTET exam and have Assamese as your Language 1 if your exam center is in Delhi. CTET exam centers typically offer specific language options based on their location.
Since your exam center is likely to be in Delhi, the available languages might not include Assamese.
