“TCS iON”, the agency which was hired by CBSE to conduct the exam, said in a statement – “On day one of the examination, unexpected technical issues impacted operations in certain venues, in the first shift. As a result, candidates in affected venues could not complete the exam. Consequently, we had to cancel the second shift examination. We are working to fully understand and quickly address these issues. We will shortly announce the revised dates for the candidates affected by the rescheduling of CTET shifts of 16 and 17 December, 2021.”
