Q:   Does the CTET syllabus change every year?

A:

No, there is no negative marking in the CTET 2024 examination.

Both the papers consist of multiple-choice questions (MCQs) wherein each question carries one mark. There is no negative marking in the exam, which implies that candidates are not penalized for choosing the wrong option as their answer. It is advisable that candidates should focus on attempting as many questions as they can in the CTET exam to achieve a high score. It is important that candidates must avoid guessing and attempt questions with high accuracy.
