Paper 2 is for candidates who wish to teach classes 6 to 8 in schools in Telangana. The questions in Paper 2 are designed to test the candidates' understanding of the pedagogical concepts related to child development, language, mathematics, and environment studies.

However, both papers consist of 150 multiple-choice questions (MCQs), and each question carries one mark. The duration of both papers is 2 hours and 30 minutes.

The language 1 section in Paper 1 is based on the language chosen by the candidate (Telugu, Urdu, Hindi, Kannada, Marathi, or Tamil), while the language 1 section in Paper 2 is not based on any specific language. The language 2 section in both papers is based on English for all candidates.
