With an aim to reduce the burden on the students who are writing multiple tests in one year, the Central Board of Secondary Education (CBSE) has finally requested the government to conduct University Grants Commission-National Eligibility Test (UGC-NET) and also the Central Teacher Eligibility Test (CTET) just once in every year.
Usually, these two nationwide tests will be held once in every year. Among them, UGC is the one examination helps to recruit the candidates for faculty positions in the Colleges, Universities, and grant of a junior research fellowship (JRF). Another exam, CTET is the test that determines and finalizes the candidates to recruit for teaching jobs in all government schools across the country.

CBSE made a special request to Human Resource and Development (HRD) Ministry that there is no need to conduct these two exams twice in every year and they can perform it once on every year. Because of doing it twice, the number of candidates who are appearing this test has decreased.
In the same way, CTET also wanted by the board to conduct just once in a year to meet the requirements and objectives. As per the sources, it is heard that the government is likely to give permission for the CBSE to conduct CTET just once in a year.
But it is not sure whether the government will give a nod to CBSE’s proposal regarding UGC-NET, as it this particular examination not only determines the candidate’s eligibility to provide them with the faculty position but also important for the grants of JRF.
A senior official from CBSE stated that to conduct these examinations, they have to do the planning for five months before and due to the limited workforce, they have been busy with these tests throughout the year and been struggling.”
