They will focus on understanding the characteristics and needs of diverse learners, interaction with learners and the attributes and qualities of a good facilitator of learning.

The Test items for Language I will focus on the proficiencies related to the medium of instruction, (as chosen from list of prescribed language options in the application form).

The Language II will be from among the prescribed options other than Language I. A candidate may choose any one language from the available language options and will be required to specify the same in the application form. The test items in Language II will also focus on the elements of language, communication and comprehension abilities.

The test items in Mathematics and Environmental Studies will focus on the concepts, problem solving abilities and pedagogical understanding of the subjects. In all these subject areas, the test items shall be evenly distributed over different divisions of the syllabus of that subject prescribed for classes I–V by the appropriate Government.

    I am very happy for your decision to conduct a competive exam for new qualitative teacher.But According to syllabus of TET “Mental ability” is not mentioned. I think this a main & major subject to check the mental level of would be teachers. In every competitive exam like B.Ed entrance, JBT entrance, M.Ed entrance,SSC, BANKING, RAILWAYS, even in UPSC Exams is considered as a major subject, I think it is totally injustice with school students to providing them low mental level teacher. I think you must have to revise your syllabus to include ‘MENTLE ABILITY’.I have discussed with many scholars and well qualified educationists regarding the new syllabus. They also suggest to include the above said topic as a major subject.
