#. KTET Time Duration

By knowing the KTET time duration, we can prepare better for the exam. Wondering how?

Well, if a candidate knows the time in which they have to attempt the questions, it will help them divide their time more efficiently to complete their exam on time. This will further help them while preparing because they can prepare by noting the time and attempting the questions in the same limited time as in the actual exam. This will make their brain work the same way as it will work in the exam under pressure. KTET time duration is 150 minutes for each category, i.e., candidates will get only 150 minutes to complete the exam. As mentioned above, each category has 150 questions. Therefore, the candidate has to complete a question in one minute to focus on each question equally and complete the exam on time.

This was all about the KTET time duration and exam pattern. We hope it helps you in your preparation for the exam.
