CTET is an offline exam (pen and paper) that is conducted over 150 minutes. There is no negative marking but candidates should not attempt the questions in a hurry as they might lose out on marks this way. There are total 5 sections in the exam and each question will get you 1 mark. Try and solve the questions that you know for sure first, so that you increase your confidence and secure some marks easily. If you don’t know an answer, use the elimination method to eliminate the incorrect answers and you will be closer to finding the correct answer.
Which section to start first?
Always take the sections on the basis of your expertise. The candidates should not waste time over the section they are not well prepared for. They should solve the other sections with good command instead. Generally, it was asked to start with the Child Development and Pedagogy section, as it is all reading part, which won’t take your much time to solve the 30 questions. After CD & P, switch to English Language if you have opted for it. In last, try to solve the questions from Mathematics. As Mathematics involves too much calculation and you need to be perfect to solve the questions.
