    ctet2018 मे आपत्ति मांगी गई जिसमे हमारे द्वारा एक उत्तर पर आपत्ति की गई तथा पेपर-1मे तीन से चार उत्तर गलत हैं मेरा 88अंक आ रहा यदि उत्तरमाला संोधित की जाती तो मै पास हो जाता लेकिन ऐसा नही हुआ जो दुर्भाग्यपूर्ण कि देश की सबसे प्रतिष्ठित संस्था ने आपत्ति पर संशोधन तो दूर एक पंक्ति का स्पष्टीकरण देना भी उचित नही समझा ।
