The CBSE has declared the Teachers' Eligibility Test Result on April 2nd 2015. There were lacs of examinees waiting impatiently for the Result. But Result was abysmal with a very low percentage of Success. The Test was held for Primary and Middle Class Teachers ( From 1st to 5 and from VI to VIII ). But in the Result meant for future Teachers was only around 9% demonstrating that 9 out of 10 could make it.
It means the CTET Result for Jr Level has been only 17.9% something. As many as Four Lac and Seventy thousand ( Approx) had appeared for CTET this year for VI t VIII classes also but only around 43,000 candidates could clear the test. For the General Category the pass percentage is 13.8, for SC 3.88, ST 4.86 and OBC 8.23. The Result for I to V class relate the same story.
Why is this Poor Performance in the Qualifying Eligibility Test?
Every year this is the same old story. Why are the would-be teachers finding this test a Herculean Task? What is this that has become the constant phobia for them in CTET? As per our discussion with the examinees, we have found that they find English Portion to be very tough to deal with. Questions of this foreign language make them shudder.
They can't cross this hurdle. There is no problem for them in Hindi Portion. There is also some problem in GK. But this can be handled with a bit of practice. But the real bugbear is English Subject and its Pedagogy. So the candidates especially from Northern India suffer a lot due to this.
The Reason is that the Teaching and Learning of English is very poor in this region. This poor result in CTET also demonstrates the falling standard of Education chiefly because of RTE due to which students are not detained up to 8th class besides other reasons as well.
