    The special class Railway Apprentice exam (SCRA) is conducted by the union public service Commission (UPSC). This is an exam which is conducted with the main objective of selecting the candidates in to the mechanical division of the Indian railway department.

    Since you have attained only 16 years of age you will not be eligible to attend the special class Railway Apprentice exam. The minimum age limit for attending this exam is between 17-21 years. There is an age relaxation in case of the reserved categories. Other important eligibility criteria’s for this exam is as follows –
    • The minimum criterion for applying to this exam is a 12th class with around first or second class division in the examination. The candidates should have studies maths as a compulsory subject with any one of the subjects from Physics and chemistry.
    • The graduates can also apply. But they also need to score a first class or second class division in the graduation level and also needs to have studies math’s as a compulsory subject and any one of the subject from physics and chemistry as their graduation subjects.


    Apart from all the above criteria’s, the candidates should have taken their educational qualifications from a recognized university or college. The candidates who fulfill all the above mentioned criteria’s can attend the written test. They also need to attend the physical fitness test also.
