In order to prepare for the SET, aspiring candidates must have a thorough understanding of the SET syllabus. Knowing the SET syllabus and exam structure ahead of time can therefore aid candidates in strategically planning and studying for the exam. We’ll look at the complete SET syllabus in this article to help candidates ace their examinations.

Read the evaluation methodologies and outcomes. Also, read everything about the Teachers’ Eligibility Test.

In order to appear for the SET exam, the candidates should first fulfill the SET eligibility criteria. The eligibility criteria are not difficult to understand at all. Let us know more about it here-

-The candidate or aspirant must hold a master’s degree from any recognized and renowned university or educational institution in India.

-The candidate must be a native of India and should provide all the legal certificates and documents to prove the same.

-There is no age limit to writing the SLET. The candidates can appear for the SET exam at any age they want or wish to.

The SET consists of two papers and is a written test. Candidates must pass both tests in order to be qualified. Only objective type, MCQ-based questions appear on both assessments. Other types of questions include matching, assertion and reasoning, and True/False. Both question papers are worth 300 points and contain 150 questions. There is no negative marking, and all questions are worth two points. Both tests are done in two different sessions. There are two parts of the SET written test, and candidates need to attempt both Paper 1 and Paper 2 to crack the exam. Paper 1 covers general subjects, while Paper 2 comprises the core subject chosen by the candidates. For the students who wish to select Mathematics and Science, we have covered all the topics and issues under Mathematics and Science in the list below.
