    Hello my Dear Friend ...


    Surely

    You can apply for the S.C.R.A. exam


    For that you must have a minimum of " 12th " class from a recognized university

    So for that the minimum age must be " 17 " years

    And the maximum age is allowed up to " 21 " years


    of course there will be an age relaxation for the reserved candidates

    For OBC -- 3 years

    For SC / ST -- 5 years

    And there will be an Age relaxation for the Physically handicapped candidates also

    You must be an Indian Citizen

    S.C.R.A. --- Special Class Railway Apprentice Exam

    And this SCRA exam is conducted by the " Union Public Service Commission "


    SCRA examination Conducts in the "" 3 "" Stages ..

    <<>> Written Examination

    <<>> Interview / personality Test

    <<>> Document Verification
