Don't Make These 7 Mistakes of CTET Exam

Don’t Be Late

It will be clearly specified in the CTET admit card 2024 that it is mandatory for applicants to enter the examination centre at least 90 minutes before the start of the examination. To reach the CTET exam centre on time is crucial, it will help you to relax and calm down from the stress of the test. The exam centre sometimes does not allow late arrivals to reach the venue of the exam. So it's important to avoid these implications. If your test centre is in some other area, you must arrive there a day before the CTET inspection date to get an idea of the location and availability of the car.

Don’t Forget Important Documents

A hard copy of the CTET admit card 2024 and the other documents must be carried to the CTET exam centre. As specified in the official CTET notification, along with the admit card, photo identification such as PAN Card, Voter ID, Aadhar Card and others must be carried. If you assemble all the documents a day before the examination, it will be simpler. Do not take the risk to print out the admit card on the day of the examination. Please ensure the photograph of the passport size must be with you. You must apply the same photograph to the admit card that you submitted during the registration process.

Never Lose Patience while Reading Question Paper

The biggest mistake most students make in the exam hall is to read all the questions in one go. If you encounter tough questions, this will make you more anxious. When reading a CTET question paper, never rush to read the question. Read carefully and try to understand what answers you need to give. It can take a little more time to read questions correctly, but this will help you give more detailed answers. Attempt all the questions, as there will be no negative marking.

Don’t Get Stuck with Tricky Ones

Among the teaching sector recruitment exams, CTET is one of the tough exams. In every segment, there are a few tricky problems to test the presence of mind in the examination hall. So it's important not to get stuck with any tough question, it's actually time-consuming with these questions.
