Rajasthan Eligibility Examination for Teacher (REET), also known as Rajasthan Teacher Eligibility Test (RTET), is a state-level competitive exam which is conducted by the Board of Secondary Education, Rajasthan (BSER) to certify candidates for employment as teachers in the state.
Basically, the REET exam is conducted for the recruitment of teachers for two different levels, namely Level I or Primary Teacher and Level II or Upper Primary Teacher. Thus, those who clear REET become eligible for the post of teachers in classes 1-5 and classes 6-8 in schools and institutions of the state. Further, as per the updated rules declared by the Rajasthan government, only Basic School Teaching Certificate (BSTC) holders are allowed to appear in the REET Level-1 examination.
Also, with a view to give priority to state students, the exam questions will now be related more to Rajasthan. Moreover, it has also decided that the REET score will constitute 90% of the weightage against the current 70%, while the rest 10% would be assessed on the basis of marks scored in graduation or the scores of the Senior Secondary exam.
The minimum age criteria for taking the REET exam is 18 years while there are no maximum age criteria. The exam is conducted offline and there is no negative marking.
