What is the difference between CTET, TET and B.Ed, B.El.Ed?

CTET and TET are Teacher Eligibility Tests in India. They have been put in place so as to make sure that the teachers in India are qualified to teach. Unlike the top performing countries in the world, teaching is not a preferred job in India so it does not attract talent. Government has started paying well in government schools in order to attract great teachers.

Overall, there are 5000 Job Vacancies posted by Government in KV, Navodaya Vidyala and Tibetan Schools. CTET qualified teachers are eligible to apply in these vacancies.

Similary, every State publish vacancies in the state-run government schools. These schools mostly are in vernacular medium (Kanadda, Tamil, Telugu etc) and a small percentage is in English Medium. Every state therefore conduct TET (Karnataka TET, UP TET, Tamil Nadu TET etc) to recruit teachers for State school vacancies.

Salaries in Govt. schools have been raised to as high as ₹40,000 - ₹50,000 per month with retirement benefits. So, lakhs of people write CTET and State TET exams to fill us these vacancies.
B.Ed and B.El.Ed are the undergraduate / college degrees required to teach in a Govt. and CBSE affliated schools. It is mandatory to either have a diploma or a degree in education to write the CTET/TET exams too.
