Exam Pattern Analysis

A person who wishes to teach at both levels (classes I through V and classes VI through VIII) must take both exams (Paper I and Paper II). However, before taking the exam, you must thoroughly understand the REET subject-wise syllabus and question paper pattern.

There are 150 total questions of mark each, to be answered in 2.5 hours. There’s no Negative Marking. Paper 1 is for primary school (classes I through V) and Paper 2 is for students in grades 6 through 8. 

The best strategy to prepare for REET is to solve previous years’ question papers to get an estimate of how much time you will require to finish the actual exam’s question paper.
