Who can apply for the HTET exam?

The Board of School Education, Haryana (BSEH) conducts the Haryana Teacher Eligibility Test (HTET) to determine if candidates possess the essential skills and abilities to teach in any school authorized by the Haryana Department of School Education. Based on the eligibility or requirements required, the candidate can register for one or all of the following levels:

  • Level 1: Primary Teacher Level (PRT): For teaching grades 1 to 5
  • Level 2: Trained Graduate Teacher Level (TGT): For teaching grades 6 to 8
  • Level 3: Post Graduate Teacher Level (PGT): For teaching grades 11 to 12

Candidates who pass the written test will receive a TET (Teacher Ability Test) certificate, which is good for seven years. The HTET exam certificate used to be valid for five years. The change was made in response to a recent amendment by the Haryana state government.
