Malayala Manorama had reported how the second semester D El Ed students couldn’t apply for the KTET as their semester exams were scheduled until November 11. Usually, the students would get promoted to the third semester after completing the second semester exams by mid-October. This enabled the students to write KTET twice in the second half of the course.
Now, the D El Ed students can apply for KTET until the last day of their semester exams.
The third semester often begins by October 17.
