The annual EducationWorld India School Rankings (EWISR) is the world’s largest and most comprehensive school rankings survey. In the forthcoming EducationWorld India School Rankings 2021-22, under the critical parameter of teacher quality, your editors have decided to supplement the perceptual score awarded by sample respondents with the CENTA® Teacher Subject Competency Test (TSCT) taken by representative teachers in schools. This test will be designed, administered, and scored by CENTA (Centre for Teacher Accreditation), India’s pioneer and most respected teacher training and certification company (estb 2014).

*WhatsApp chat open from 9 AM to 5 PM IST.

Kindly note that candidates will require a desktop/ laptop with a webcam or a mobile phone (with a front-facing camera) to take the test. Schools will receive the individual scores of nominated teachers along with an average score of their performance in the assessment in the second half of September. CENTA® and EducationWorld will ensure confidentiality of teacher information and this will remain with the specific school only.
