CTET 2021 exam will be held on January 21, 2022, for the exam shifts postponed on December 17, 2021. Candidates need to carry the CTET admit card to the exam centres.


Central Board of Secondary Education (CBSE) is going to conduct the CTET 2021 rescheduled exam shifts of December 17, 2021, on January 21, 2022. Candidates who are going to appear for the Central Teacher Eligibility Test (CTET) will be required to carry the admit card to the examination centres. Candidates need to reach the CTET exam centres as per the reporting time mentioned on their admit cards.

The CTET 2021-22 exam began on December 16, 2021, and will conclude on January 21, 2022. The exam is being organised online in different shifts and days to accommodate lakh of candidates who applied for the examination.

The CBSE conducts the CTET examination to determine the eligibility of candidates as Classes 1 to 8 teachers in the central schools.

CTET Answer Key 2021-22

The CBSE will release the provisional CTET answer key 2021-22 soon after the exam concludes. Candidates will be provided with the one-time facility to submit their objections against the answer key if they find an answer as incorrect or wrong. The final answer key will be released after the subject matter experts analyse the objections received from candidates.

Normalisation of CTET scores

As the CTET 2021 exam is being conducted in multiple shifts, different sets of question papers will be used in every shift. To ensure that the difficulty level of CTET question paper and syllabus coverage remains comparable, the CBSE may adopt a score normalisation process to adjust the variations, if any. Though the CBSE has yet not disclosed the method of normalisation, it is likely that the scores will be normalised based on the following parameters:

  • Number of registered candidates
  • Number of test-takers
  • Difficulty level of exam
  • Minimum qualifying marks
