CTET 2021: Changes in Syllabus
There will be no change in the syllabus of CTET and the structure of the question paper. Still, the question papers will be developed to assess conceptual understanding, critical thinking, application, problem-solving, and reasoning. The focus will be on assessing the candidate’s understanding of teaching the subject, pedagogic content knowledge, knowledge relevance of the subject in the school curriculum, and other teaching dimensions.
The other dimensions include pedagogic content knowledge, strategies for developing conceptual clarity, teaching-learning aids, and assessment methodologies specific to the content. A detailed assessment framework with measurable competencies, sample blueprints and sample questions will be released by the CBSE to enable aspiring candidates to prepare well for the CTET 2021 examination.
