CTET is conducted by CBSE, twice a year in accordance with the guidelines framed by NCTE as per provisions of the RTE act. The rationale for including the Teacher Eligibility Test as a minimum qualification for a person to be eligible for appointment as a teacher is to bring national standards and benchmark teacher quality in the recruitment process, improve performance standards of teachers and quality of teaching.

The CTET coaching program (The CTET Advantage) offered by NIIT has been designed to provide complete revision and clarification of concepts related to pedagogy and child development. It guides the students on taking the examination by providing them with innumerable practice tests for clearing doubts and by conducting mock tests in real test environment. The program also includes workshop in CCE, student management skills and interview skills.

As per CBSE, only 1.79% of the 7.5 lakh candidates who appeared for the CTET in February, 2014 qualified. NIIT has helped many applicants clear the exam, with many students almost doubling their scores from the previous attempts, thereby validating its approach and efficacy.

Teachers who enroll for The CTET Advantage program learn from expert faculty comprising of domain experts and CTET/NET qualified professionals. The teachers can avail the facility of interactive and engaging, multimedia based tutorials on subject hot spots, several full length practice tests along with analysis, specific techniques and strategies for cracking the exam, doubt clearing sessions, well researched courseware, and lessons on demand on all key concepts.
