Teacher’s Eligibility Test (TET) Pass Certificate Validity Extended from 7 Years to Lifetime

New Delhi, 3 June 2021 – Union Education Minister Ramesh Pokhriyal has announced the government’s decision of extending the validity of the Teacher’s Eligibility Test (TET) qualifying certificate from 7 years to lifetime with retrospective effect from 2011. As per the announcement notice, “The respective State Govts./UTs will take necessary action to revalidate/issue fresh TET certificates to those candidates whose period of 7 years has already elapsed.”

This will be a positive step in increasing the employment opportunities for candidates aspiring to make a career in the teaching field,” Mr Pokhriyal added.

Teachers Eligibility Test is one of the essential qualifications for a person to be eligible for appointment as a teacher in schools. The Guidelines dated 11th February 2011 of the National Council for Teacher Education (NCTE) laid down that TET would be conducted by the State Governments and the validity of the TET Certificate was 7 years from the date of passing TET,” the notice read further. 

Earlier, the validity of the TET qualifying/pass certificate was 7 years. However, there was no limit on the number of TET attempts a person could take to obtain the pass certificate. Additionally, anybody who wanted to appear for the TET to improve his/her score was allowed to do so (despite clearing the last TET exam). 

Passing a relevant TET is compulsory to become an elementary teaching professional in India. The Central Teacher Eligibility Test (CTET) is held on a national-level by CBSE while several TET exams are conducted across the country on state-level.
