TET stands for Teacher Eligibility Test. It is a national-level examination conducted in India to assess the eligibility of candidates who wish to pursue a career in teaching. TET is conducted by both central and state governments in India. The exam consists of two papers: Paper-I for candidates who wish to teach primary classes (classes 1-5) and Paper-II for candidates who wish to teach upper primary classes (classes 6-8). The exam pattern and syllabus may vary slightly across different states in India. The TET exam assesses the candidates' knowledge of child development, pedagogy, teaching methodologies, subject-specific knowledge, and their ability to communicate and interact with students. Clearing the TET exam is a mandatory requirement for candidates who wish to apply for teaching jobs in government schools across India.
