    Hi
    I am sorry to say that being 23 years of age does not fits in the age category of the SCRA exam.
    For giving the SCRA exam you must be a 12th passed or appeared candidate and your age should be in between 17-21 years.
    Your age should not be less than 17 years and not more than 21 years. And as your age is more than 21 years, you are not allowed to give the SCRA exam.

    Being a OBC candidate you will get 3 years of age relaxation which will certainly make you eligible for SCRA exam if you are 23 years old.

    The age limit for General category is 17 to 21 years for SCRA exam. This exam is conducted by UPSC and you must be 10+2 pass with physics , chemistry and maths to become eligible for this exam.

    SCRA is Special Class Railway Apprentice in Indian Railway and it is one of the most reputed examination in India. you have to be really well prepared for this exam.

    Exam Pattern:

    Objective type questions will be asked in the papers which will be related to General Aptitude, Physical science and maths subjects.

    If you pass the written exam with cut off marks then you will be called for Interview which will also carry marks in final selection.

    Hence be prepared for the above stages if you want to get selected.

    Dear Friend,
    SCRA stands for the Special Class Railway Apprentice.

    The upper age limitation of the OBC candidates is relaxed by 3 years.

    The age limitation for the general candidates is 17-21 years.

    For the OBC candidates the age should be between 17-24 years and thus you are eligible to apply for the exam next year.

    But you will be having only one chance to crack the exam since you will be of 24 years.
