KARTET or Karnataka Teacher Eligibility Test 2022 and 2023 is conducted by the Centralized Admission Cell (CAC), Office of the Commissioner of public instruction, Bangalore, under the aegis of the Government of Karnataka.

KARTET is one of the essential qualifications for a person to be eligible for appointment as a teacher in any of the schools in Karnataka, that come under the clause (n) of the section 2 of the RTE Act.

The rationale for including TET as a minimum qualification for a person to be eligible for appointment as a teacher is :

  1. To bring national standards and benchmark for teacher quality in the recruitment process.
  2. To induce teacher education institutions and students from these institutions to further improve their performance.
  3. To send a positive signal to all stakeholders that the Government lays special emphasis on teacher quality.

KARTET is an eligibility test only and not a recruitment test.

There will be two papers of KARTET.

  • Paper -I will be for a person who intends to be a teacher for classes I to V.
  • Paper- II will be for a person who intends to be a teacher for classes VI to VIII.
