    Hi Aspirant,

    Friend you didn’t mention your age limit. Here I mention the detail about SCRA exam.

    SCRA stands for Special Class Railway Apprentice.

    This exam is organized by the UPSC once in a year for the recruitment of candidates in railway.

    To apply for SCRA exam you should be minimum Intermediate qualified with math subject.

    Your age should be between 17 to 21 years

    Age relaxation to eligible category

    SC/ST + 5 years

    OBC + 3 years

    PH + 10 years

    You must be the citizen of India.


    Friend if you satisfy the above mentioned criteria you can apply for SCRA exam.

    You are doing MBA , so I thing you crossed the age limit but if you belongs to reserve category then you can get chance.

    Otherwise you can not apply for SCRA exam due to your age.



    Best of Luck…

    Your educational MBA is higher most qualification for SCRA exam.

    Intermediate with Scince subjects are required qualification to apply for SCRA.

    Age limits to apply for SCRA is 17 to 21 years only.

    I think you are above age limits so, you are not eligible to apply.

    Better to apply for Civil services.

    The criteria for applying in the SCRA exam are

    ~The minimum qualification is 10+2 passed with mathematics and at least any one in physics and chemistry.
