    Hi dear
    scra is special class railway apprentice. We take this test after 10+2 if we want to take admission in B.tech. If you qualify this test then you can get admission in B.Tech that is done indian railways.It is conducted in every alternate year.you can appear but it will be not beneficial for you because you are already pursuing b.tech and are in 3rd year.

    ofcourse u can appear for scra exams. bt it is beneficial if u would have appeard after ur 12th or in 1st year of b.tech. as after geting qualified scra u will get a chance to do engneering offer by railway for 4 years and then job in railway. it stands for special class railway apprentice. and through u will get a chance of doing b.tech.
    so better do ur b.tech 1st rather than wasting again year and prepare for other railway exams..
    all the best!!

    There is much scope in SCRA.
    It stands for Special Class Railway Apperentis.
    you can appear in this exam if you are interested in railways and government job and if you want to be paid while you are studying.
    once you clear this exam you job is fixed and you are given an engineering degree after four years.
    after four years you are given some post in Indian Railway's office starting from junior executive officer and you are also promoted in years to a very high post like general manager.

    Special Class Railway Apprentice exams are conducted once in a year to choose the deserving candidates and enroll them as engineers in the railways.
    A minimum qualification for these exams is a class 12 pass out or equivalent with a PCM combination.
    Also,you must not exceed the age of 21 years in the year of filling the form.The age limit is 18-21 yrs.
    Take note that the exams are very tough,especially the maths,physics and chemistry match the standards of IIT level.
    There is also a subject called general studies which includes basically every general knowledge.
    The successful candidates are given a 4 year engineering course for free of cost and then are placed as Grade A officers in the railways.
    You can check your qualifications from the given data.
