How to check the answer key?
Candidates who appeared for the exam can check their respective answer keys and OMR sheets by following the set of steps given below:

- Step 2: Enter your roll number and your date of birth in the allocated box and click on LOGIN
- Step 3: Now you can view the answer key and OMR sheet.
Applicants may guess their scores by calculating from this provisional answer key. As the answer key is provisional as notified by the officials, the answers may change depending upon the objections and challenges raised by the candidates. It must not be considered the final score of the candidate.
How to Challenge the answer?
In the meantime, the candidates who are not satisfied and feel their marks are not justified can simply raise a challenge regarding the same on the portal. Candidates will have time till 4th February (up to 11.59 PM). They must also note that a non-refundable fee of 1000 INR has to be paid per question challenged. As per the notification, it is also cited that the fee payment mode should be only through debit or credit card.
The board will look over all the challenges and set up a committee for further investigation and will finally come up with a conclusion based on the inputs from the committee. It should be further noted that if a candidates’ challenge is accepted his/her amount of INR 1000 will be refunded to the payment method he/ she opted for. All other challenges will be discarded and no refunds will be issued.
Once the process of challenging the Answer Keys is completed and all the complaints are rectified by the Board, CBSE will release the results of CTET 2021. As per the earlier mentioned schedule, the results of CTET 2021 are expected to be declared on the 15th of February.
