The written examination timing was between 9:30 am to 12 noon and 2 pm to 4:30 pm. The paper 1, which is held for primary teachers (classes I-V) was held in the afternoon session while paper 2 (for upper primary teachers of classes VI-VIII) was conducted in the morning session.
According to CBSE, the body that organises CTET, the answer key for Sept 2016 test will be released within 24 hours of the completion of the examination and a public notice will be issued in all leading newspapers. The CTET answer key for both paper I and paper II will be displayed at the official website (www.ctet.nic.in) only.
Once the official answer keys are released, candidates can view the correct answers for the questions set given to them in the exam and evaluate the marks they can expect. The board will also display the OMR sheet of candidates for a stipulated time. The candidates can also seek a photocopy of their OMR sheet by paying a fee of Rs 500 to CBSE. The answer keys and OMR sheets would be released for a duration of few days for which the notice will be issued today.

As per the National Council of Teacher Education, a person who secures 60% or more marks in the examination is considered CTET pass and the right to give concessions to reserved category candidates in the qualifying marks is given to government bodies and school managements. Any candidate who qualifies CTET, his/her certificate would be valid for next 7 years to apply for the teachers’ jobs in CBSE-affiliated schools, recruitment in Navodaya Vidalayas and Kendriya Vidyalayas. A candidate can take as many CTET exams and the score of latest and his/her best attained marks would be considered for the recruitment processes, whichever is submitted and is valid.
