Syllabus:

TPO tests a subset of competencies from the CENTA Standards.

  • The test is board-agnostic and applicable for all boards (CBSE, ICSE, State Boards, IB, IGCSE, etc.). However, the topics tested in the Subject Expertise section are broadly (but not exclusively) aligned to the NCERT curriculum. This section will include questions on knowledge, conceptual understanding, application, competency and thinking skills in your chosen subject(s).
  • For all other sections, the questions focus on conceptual understanding of your respective subjects and application of pedagogical techniques. Questions framed are such that they are practice-oriented. Teachers should already be familiar with most of the topics and techniques on account of their training process, interaction with their respective subject and the experience of teaching these subjects.

Please see the detailed syllabus for TPO 2020    Here.

Note: There are NO prescribed textbooks for TPO preparation.
