Q:   Which exam is easier, CTET UPTET or REET?

A:
None of the exams is easier or tough. But there is a bit of difference between the Uttar Pradesh Teacher Eligibility Test, Central Teacher Eligibility Test, and Rajasthan Eligibility Examination for Teachers. Central Teacher Eligibility Test is conducted by CBSE on behalf of the central government, while Uttar Pradesh Teacher Eligibility Test and Rajasthan Eligibility Examination for Teachers are conducted by the education boards of their respective state governments. Central Teacher Eligibility Test and Uttar Pradesh Teacher Eligibility Test Exam are just qualifying in nature, on the other hand, the Rajasthan Eligibility Examination for Teachers Exam scorecard will be used to make the final merit list of the third-grade teacher vacancy. In Central Teacher Eligibility Test and Rajasthan Eligibility, Examination for Teachers Papers (both papers I and II) contain 5 sections and each section consists of 15 questions from Pedagogy issues and the other 15 ques from the content part. But in Uttar Pradesh Teacher Eligibility Test, the papers contain five sections, except Child Development and pedagogy all the sections contain questions from the content part. For better career advice, mock tests, previous year question papers, notification alerts, study notes, and much more essential information, you can check out the official sites. I hope this will help you.
