From this year (2021), Measures have also been initiated in the state in line with the guidelines of the National Council for Teacher Education (NCTE), which has been pushing for quality standards in teacher education. The NCTE has suggested radical changes in the entrance examination for teacher education courses as well as directives to introduce only four-year Bachelor of Education (B.Ed) courses in the future.
As part of their implementation, the Board of Higher Education is making changes to the EdCET 2021 exam question paper to be conducted in August for admissions in B.Ed courses for the 2021–22 academic year.
So far the entrance test has been conducted with different question papers in the respective subjects as per Social, Science, Mathematics methodology, but will no longer be so. Steps are being taken to implement a single questionnaire for all methodologies.
