Central Board of Secondary Education (CBSE), New Delhi had announced the results of the Central Teachers Eligibility Entrance Test (CTET) February 2014 on 21st March.
According to sources, only 13,428 (2%) candidates passed the CTET February 2014 examination.
CBSE had conducted the CTET 2014 exam on 16th February 2014. Entrance exam was conducted for appointment of teachers for classes 1st to 8th.
A total of 8.26 lakh candidates had registered for the CTET February 2014 exam. Out of it, around 7.50 lakh candidates appeared for the test.
Only 13,428 out of 7.50 lakh candidates cleared either paper I or paper II or both.
Clearing the paper I is mandatory for those candidates who wish to teach classes 1st to 5th, while paper II is for those wishing to teach classes 6th to 8th. Aspirants who wish to get certified for classes I to VIII need to clear both the papers.
The Board, as a step towards complete transparency, had displayed the images of the OMR answer sheets of all the candidates who had appeared in the CTET-FEB 2014 examination on its website.
This year's results actually mark a marginal improvement over last year, when over 99% of the candidates failed to pass. But CBSE sources said the board had worked on the difficulty level as well as extended the duration of the test, keeping in mind dismal results in the past.
