    The educational qualification required for scra is intermediate and the age limit for scra examination is 17 to 21 years.
    If your age lies between 17 to 21 then you can apply for scra but after clearing scra, you are supposed to persue an undergraduate engineering course from Indian Railways Institute of Mechanical and Electrical Engineering, Jamalpur.
    Since you have alreday completed your graduation degree then why not you apply for ies(Indian engineering services) examination.
    All the best
    happy learning!!!!

    Dear Friend

    SCRA stands for the Special Class Railway Apprentice examination.This entrance examination is conducted by the UPSC for selection of candidates for bachelor's degree program from the institutes like BIT Meshra etc.

    The eligibility criteria for the exam is :

    >>Minimum of 10+2 passed /appearing from a recognized board with physics ,chemistry and mathematics as compulsory subjects with at least of 60% marks in it.

    >>The general age limit is 17-21 years with three years age relaxations application for the obc candidates and five years for the SC/ST candidates .

    As you mentioned that you have completed your bachelor's degree in technology ,you are eligible for the SCRA exam if your age is within the specified limits .

    To be very honest whats the need for going SCRA exam after completing B.tech you will again have to go for the B.tech in mechanical engineering .It would be better in my opinion you should prepare for the Indian Engineering Services.

    If you will really prepare exceptionally well ,you will get definitely the respectable job with handsome salary which you will get after completing B.tech from BIT Meshra .Then whats the need to go for the SCRA.

    Decision depends upon you.Its your life and you need to take right decision.


    Hope the information helps you.If you have any more query you can leave your message here.


    all the best

    hi
    here the question is not about your graduation, the eligibility of you depends on your age.
    Because for giving the SCRA exam, the age limit required is 17-21 years.
    Now if your age lies between the limit of 17-21 years then you can appear in the SCRA exam, and if your age is above 21 years then I am sorry to say but you are not eligible for giving the exam.
