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.
