UPTET Exam Analysis 2016: Child Development and Pedagogy

Child Development and Pedagogy questions were easy as compared to other TET Examinations. There were no diversions in questions. Straight away definitions of various theories were enough to answer the questions. There were a few questions on Sigmund Freud’s Psychoanalytic theory of personality but then again, the definition of it was enough to solve it.

For Example

Question: According to _____. Id, Ego and Super ego are the three components of personality:

  1. Bandura
  2. Jung
  3. Adler
  4. Freud

Clearly, the answer is Freud.

Other than that, there were questions on Piaget’s theory of cognitive development, Two-factors theory, projective test of personality, I.Q of Children having average intelligence etc.

Overall, according to our UPTET Exam Analysis 2016 for Child Pedagogy, the paper was just as expected and strictly as per the given syllabus. On an average people could have easily attempted 20-23 Questions without any trouble.


UPTET Exam Analysis 2016: Language 1 (English/ Hindi)

The Language section this year was totally unexpected. It was more difficult than all of the TET Papers combined. Let’s just say that if CTET asks CBSE Board English, then UPTET was all about ICSE Board English.

Expected cut-off for this section will certainly be lower than previous years. Yet, on a second look, through proper inspection, around 10-15 questions could have been attempted with a little trouble.


UPTET Exam Analysis 2016: Language 2 (English/ Hindi)

Language 2 was similar to Language 1 but in terms of difficulty, it was easier as compared to Language 1 Section. Overall difficulty level for this section would be medium.

Following topics would have helped solve this section of examination.

  1. Learning and acquisition
  2. Principles of language Teaching
  3. Role of listening and speaking; function of language and how children use it as a tool
  4. Critical perspective on the role of grammar in learning a language for communicating ideas verbally and in written form;
  5. Challenges of teaching language in a diverse classroom; language difficulties, errors and disorders


UPTET Exam Analysis 2016: Science and Mathematics

This section was a little difficult for a person with Non-Science background specifically for those who never went through higher secondary mathematics. However, for those with Science background, it was relatively easy. Our Analysis for this UPTET Section is as follows.

Numbers of Questions asked from various sections are

  • Physics – 11 Questions
  • Chemistry – 7 Questions

UPTET Exam Analysis 2016: Social Studies

There were a variety of questions on History, Geography, and Social Politics. Surprisingly, there were few questions on Current affairs as well. Overall it was an easy paper, although there was an advantage for those who opted social sciences as compared those who opted Science and Mathematics.

Why easy? Look at the questions below and you will know the level of difficulty.

  • How many circles are there in Olympic Flag?
  • How many players are there in Kabbadi?
  • In which category Raga Peeloo exist?
  • Whom’s subtitle is wrong?
