    CTET is compulsory for I to VIII school teacher. NET is applicable for College (University) Lecturer only. There is no exempt from CTET like Test having passed NET.

  2. Meera says:

    If a person has completed & got a National Eligibility Test for lectureship(NET) already, is the person exempted from taking other exams like CTET to teach in a lower class Grades I to VIII?
    or is it CTET compulsory?
