    Re: Is it compulsory to opt PCM in 12th if I want to write Indian Railway Exams in future?

    Dear Friend

    Your query is not quite clear but as far as I am concerned I think that you want the information regarding the Special Class Railway apprentice examination.

    Here I am discussing the eligibility criteria for the SCRA exam after which you will get answer to your query:

    1.Academic qualification:

    >>You must have passed your 10+2 or appearing for it from a recognized board .Physics ,chemistry and mathematics must be your compulsory subjects in the 10+2.

    So it is compulsory to have PCM as main subjects in 10+2 in order to eligible for the SCRA exam.

    2.Age criteria :

    >>The age limit for the SCRA exam is 17-21 years .Relaxation in age applicable to the obc and sc/st respectively.

    3.Nationality:

    >>You must be an Indian citizen.

    4.Examination pattern :

    The examination pattern for the SCRA is as below:

    Paper I : General ability test :200 marks

    Paper II: Physical sciences (physics and chemistry ) :200 marks

    Paper III: Mathematics: 200 marks .

    Note: Two hours duration for each exam.

    >>Negative marking for each wrong answer.

    For any more details and previous year papers ,you can also visit www.upsc.gov.in

    Suggestions:

    There are very few seats under this exam about 40-50 ,so the competition is very tough ,you need to build strong concepts of the PCM in order to score better marks in the exam and get selected .For mathematics ,R.D Sharma from class 10th to 12th will be sufficient and for Physics and chemistry go for the NCERT books from class 9th to 12th.



    Hope the information helps you .If you have any other query related to this then you can leave your message here.

    All the best

    hi
    if you want to get into the indian railways in the technical department, then it is compulsory for you to get into the PCM, and thereafter complete your graduation in the technical field only and then you need to give the entrance examination conducted by the RRB, railway recruitment body. And if you are selected in it, then you will be appointed in the indian railways.

    Dear Aspirant
    If you are asking about Railway Exam,then I must tell you that it is not compulsory
    for railway exam to pass +2 in PCM,because there are lot of exams of railway which
    are based on graduation and +2 base that do not demand for specialization in any
    subject.
    but if you want engineers exam or special category exams then it must demand for
    +2 in PCM...
    All The Best...
