i have passed my degree in bsc by 50%. and i have 1and 3 months experience in teaching, in cambridge board. hence is there any chance for me to get selected as i havent done my b.ed yet?

Papeya Dubey Student Expert 19th Sep, 2019
Hello,

For a candidate to be eligible for CTET for primary and elementary stage, doing BEd or DEd  is compulsory, experience doesn't count here nor is it part of eligibility criteria.

You can only appear for CTET or any other state level TET, after completion of teacher's training program such as BEd, DEd etc.
