Do not waste so much time over a question in case you do not know the answer. Since there is no negative marking in CTET, you can make guesses but do not leave the questions unanswered.
- Prior to commencement of the CTET examination, you should have ample practice. The more you practice by solving questions, the more competent you will be for your examination.

Prior to two or three days of the commencement of your examination, do not try to learn new things. Just try to do revision and stay tension free. Take a good diet and avoid excess use of tea or coffee. Sleep for 7-8 hours and do some exercises to keep yourself active and agile. On the day of examination, reach the examination hall half an hour before time, so that you can easily find you seat and take your examination confidently.
