Which one is better-D.Ed OR B.Ed?
Lots and plenty of questions come to one’s mind when they want to settle on teaching as a profession. Particularly now after the NCTE notification, when even the candidates for B.Ed are eligible for the post of primary teachers
The rules for B.Ed Eligibility for Primary Teacher jobs by NCTE have been revised:
All the Bachelor of Education | B.Ed degree holder with a minimum of 50% marks are eligible for primary teacher posts.
And if the degree holder candidates of B.Ed course joins as Primary Teacher, it might be necessary to undergo about 6-months Bridge Course in elementary education in order to be recognised by NCTE. This should be within 2 years from the date of joining.
In addition, D.Ed or JBT or D.El.Ed candidates are still eligible for primary teacher posts. D.Ed is actually a really good option for people who want to have an early career in teaching or for people who because of some reason can’t do graduation. For D.Ed, one must have a minimum of 50% marks in 10+2, with English as a compulsory language. After completing the course D.Ed, in order to be eligible for government primary teachers job, one must first clear all relevant state’s TET exam.

B.Ed is best if you’re a graduate or post graduate with 50%marks in either. Moreover, as per NCTE notification now that B.Ed candidates are eligible for primary teacher posts, it’s more beneficial to do B.Ed instead of D.Ed. Furthermore, the after-process is same as D.Ed, candidate needs to clear TET exam of their respective state to be eligible for government jobs.
Therefore, to sum up, it totally depends on one’s qualification to go for which course. However the actual answer is B.Ed to the question which one is better- D.Ed or B.Ed. After finishing the B.Ed course, one gets a degree instead of a diploma, and is further eligible for both PRT and TGT posts. Also majority of private schools prefer B.Ed teachers instead of D.Ed.
