The exam which used to be held in physical mode has shifted to an online mode. Further,  the validity of CTET certificates has been extended. Earlier the CTET certificates were valid for seven years, however, now the same is valid for a lifetime.

The test will be conducted in 20 languages including Hindi and English. Conducting exams in regional languages is in line with the new National Education Policy (NEP) which advocates for teaching in the mother tongue. The NEP also suggests that those who pass TET will have to give a demonstration or appear in an interview, and show their knowledge of the local language.
