5. Social Science 60 Easy

We will now proceed section-wise and provide your our analysis of each section of REET Written Exam.

1. REET Exam Analysis: Child Development and Pedagogy

Similar to previous years’ question papers, Child Development and Pedagogy Questions this year were direct and easy in terms of level of difficulty. As a REET aspirant, basic understanding of Child Pedagogy was enough to answer those questions.

Out of 30 Questions, at least 25 of them were direct questions. We believe, if a candidate had gone through previous papers properly, he/she would have solved at least 7-10 of them without any trouble.

There were direct questions on Cattell Personality Traits, Meredith’s study of child behavior and Murray’s Test. Surprisingly, there were no questions on Sigmund Freud’s Psychoanalytic Theory of Personality, despite being the most important theories of them all. So, why did we call this section easy?

Here, are a few actual questions asked in REET this year. These were direct and easy.

  • Question: What are the characteristics of dyslexia?
  • Question: When was Right of Children to Free and Compulsory Education Act – 2009 applied?
  • Question: What is thinking?
  • Question: Which Stage is called a period of Pseudo-Maturity?

2. REET Exam Analysis: Language 1 (English/ Hindi)

Questions on Language 1, be it English or Hindi, was easy. It was all about testing your basic understanding of the language.

An average student could easily attempt 22-25 questions out of 30, without any trouble. A definitive rank booster for this year REET Exam was this section. Let us move further in our REET Exam Analysis.

3. REET Exam Analysis: Language 2 (English/ Hindi)

Unlike Language 1, Language 2 Paper, both English or Hindi, was difficult compared to other TET Exams. Questions on Passages, Antonyms-Synonyms even the Pedagogical aspects of the Language were one notch higher than the Previous Year.

On an average, 10-15 questions could have been attempted correctly. However don’t be disheartened if you struggled in this section, the paper was difficult for all and not just you. Besides, REET is a qualifying exam and the cut-offs are pre-decided.

4. REET Exam Analysis: Science and Mathematics

This section in REET was a bit ambiguous for a person of Non-Science background. Specifically for those who never went through higher secondary mathematics. However, for those with Science background, it was relatively easy. The total number of questions asked from various sections are as follows.

  • Physics – 10 Questions
  • Chemistry – 8 Questions
  • Biology – 12 Questions
  • Mathematics – 20 Questions
  • Pedagogical Aspects of Science and Maths – 10 Questions

Clearly, Mathematics is one topic that can define your qualifying marks.

5. REET Exam Analysis: Social Studies

Unlike Science and Mathematics, this section was relatively easy. There were a good amount of basic questions from History, Geography, Polity, Social and Political life and Pedagogical aspects of Social Science.
