“I am overwhelmed! This is, by far, the best thing that has happened to me in a long time. God bless all of you at CENTA. I am happy that this will enable me reach out to schools far and wide, and contribute to the country's education in many more meaningful ways.”

“The well-designed questions shot from every angle perceivable in Pedagogy and brain teasers in Math ensured me that gratification I was looking for. I must congratulate CENTA for taking up such a great initiative. The profession of school teachers has always been highly eulogized on paper but not much has been done concretely to raise the water mark. CENTA TPO is a step in the right direction. Also, for self-motivated teachers this assessment could serve as a benchmark to work towards.”

Director, The Crossword School, Guntur and CENTA TPO 2015 National Rank 17
“Every learner must face an exam, then why not a professional one? I got a mail regarding the TPO 2015 through our Principal. I gave the test and received a rank among the first 500 teachers. I was on cloud nine. I again gave TPO 2016 to improve my rank. The preparations that went missing last time from my routine found time early morning thrice a week. The logic and ability section went the best. CENTA TPO has stepped in the picture as Messiah”
Teacher, Lodha World School, Thane
“When I was attempting the questions I felt I was learning a lot while answering them. My subject questions taught me how much more I have to learn about the subject I teach and were a bit humbling. Respect! Every single question was well-made. At the end of the test we (my wife and I) kept talking of how we just want to study about teaching because we suddenly felt like beginners in a vast and exciting field”
