    A four year study of Mechanical Engineering at Indian Institute Of Electrical And Mechanical Engineering.

    After completing the course,a job in Indian Railway Service Of Mechanical Engineers(IRSME).

    It is required to have done 10+2 with mathematics and any one subject between physics and chemistry.
    The percentage required is minimum of second division.

    Second Division means minimum 45% marks.

    So it is required to have minimum 45% marks in 10+2 to apply for SCRA.

    My dear friend there is no requirement of any kind of specific percentage in order to give the SCRA exam.
    For giving the SCRA examination, you need to be a 12th class passed/appeared and your age should be in between 16-21 years.
    Moreover for giving this exam, you need to be having physics, chemistry and mathematics as your main subjects in class 12th.
    This is the exam which is conducted by the upsc.
