CBSE Proposed to Set up National Testing Agency | CTET in 20 Languages

Hello Readers,
CBSE Proposed to Set up National Testing Agency | CTET in 20 Languages

The Government had proposed to establish a National Testing Agency which will be an autonomous and self-sustained premier testing organisation to conduct all entrance examinations for higher education institutions. And the National Testing Agency is going to be set up to relieve the Central Board of Secondary Education (CBSE) of the burden of conducting multiple examinations.

The creation of  the National Testing Agency (NTA) was approved by the Union Cabinet chaired by the Prime Minister in November 2017. 

The National Testing Agency (NTA) is expected to conduct some of the examinations that the CBSE has been conducting till now except 10th and 12th board examinations. Among the examinations that will be transferred to NTA are the prestigious Joint Entrance Examination ( JEE) for admission to engineering colleges like IITs and NITs and the National Eligibility Cum Entrance Test (NEET) etc.

So the important point is if we can see any difference in our education system?

Along with the proposal of National Testing Agency, one more proposal has been added for the CTET Examination. In CTET Exam, a candidate may choose any one language as Language I and other as Language II from the available language options i.e. choose only two languages from English, Hindi, and Sanskrit only.

But, Union Minister for Human Resource Development also suggested Central Board of Secondary Education (CBSE) to conduct the Central Teacher Eligibility Examination (CTET) in all 20 languages i.e. English, Hindi, Assamese, Bangla, Garo, Gujarati,Kannada, Khasi, Malayalam,Manipuri, Marathi, Mizo,Nepali, Oriya, Punjabi,Sanskrit, Tamil, Telugu,Tibetan & Urdu. This proposal is set forth so that the candidates of other regions also get the benefit of CTET Exam.

In fact, in some latest development, High Court gave the order to the concerned department, that CTET exam is going to be conducted in the next four months. 

Well, this is something that we will see in near future. We have some expectations and let’s see when the Government respond to it.
