    Friend,the age limitations for the Special class Railway apprentice examinations is 17-21 years not 21-30 years ,so I will suggest you to kindly edit your post.Relaxations are also provided to obc and sc/st respectively.

    In 10+2 ,you must have physics,chemistry and mathematics as main subjects with at least 60% marks in it.

    So friend ,if you are age is below 21 years after completing bachelor's degree i mechanical engineering then you are 100% eligible for the SCRA exams.

    SCRA exam pattern:


    This year SCRA exams has already been conducted ,so if you are eligible then you have to wait for next year that is 2014.

    Hope the information helps you.For any other details you may visit www.upsc.gov.in.

    Re: Can I apply for SCRA (Special Class Railway Apprentice) exam with B.Tech (Mechanical) as qualification?

    Hello

    The Eligibility criteria for the SCRA is
    1)The candidates must have done their 10+2 or any other equivalent exam to 10+2 with mathematics and any one subject between physics and chemistry with second division.

    2)Age limit-17 to 21 years.

    Now as you have done B.TECH then you must have mathematics and any one subject between physics and chemistry,but your age must be issue.
    But the biggest fact is that SCRA stands for the Special Class Railway Apprentice,if you qualify the entrance then there is interview and if you get selected then you will be send to the Indian Institute Of Mechanical and Electrical Engineering,Jamalpur,where you will study the 4 year course of Mechanical engineering,after which will be appointed as a group 'A' officer in the railways.

    Now you have already completed your mechanical engineering,then there is no sense in again going for the same study,also the success chances in the SCRA is very less.The number of vacancies is approximately 10-12 and the number of applicants is more than lakh.

    For more details visit the website of the UPSC.

    This year UPSC SCRA exam has been conducted but the next notification for SCRA exam will be announced in the next year so that you need to start your study for this examination and you should prepare for this exam with complete concentration

    You must join any good coaching institute to prepare for this examination and if you choose any reputed institute for your preparation and give more than 8 hours everyday for the preparation then you may easily get selected but dear you have to focus on each and every single topic of the syllabus then only you will be eligible to get selected for the post of SCRA under the central government and when you have made this thing as your target then you need to study in depth about this examination then you may get more knowledge and qualify the written examination easily

    If you qualify the written examination then you will have to qualify the interview process also then you will be finally selected for the job and start your work
