The Central Board of Secondary Education administers the Central Teachers Eligibility Test (CTET) (CBSE). Many students are perplexed about how to enter the teaching profession after passing the CTET exam. Many of you have passed the test and are interested in learning how to secure a teaching job. So, today, we’ll talk about how to proceed after you’ve received your CTET certificate.

Among the other teaching tests, the CTET is regarded as one of the most difficult. The CTET Test has an extremely low qualifying rate. So, if you got a decent grade, it indicates you’re one of a few thousand people with a strong chance of landing a position in a government or private school.
