Mechanism of National Recruitment Agency

NRA will conduct a common test and based on the scores obtained by the candidates, IBPS, SSC, and RRB will conduct the Tier 2 and Tier 3 examination.

What’s The Aim of NRA?

NRA aims to conduct separate exams for graduate candidates, 12th pass candidates, and 10th pass candidates. The scores received in these exams will be valid for 3 years which can be used to apply further for II-Tier recruitment.

Major Highlights:

  • There is no restriction on the number of attempts a candidate can give. The best valid score will be deemed as the current and ultimate score.
  • The exam will be conducted in a total of 12 languages based on a common curriculum.
  • There will be common registration, single fee, and the candidate need not travel outside the district for the exam.
  • A standardized question bank with multiple questions will be created in a central server.

Our PMO tweeted “The #NationalRecruitmentAgency will prove to be a boon for crores of youngsters. Through the Common Eligibility Test, it will eliminate multiple tests and save precious time as well as resources. This will also be a big boost to transparency”

The CET will create a uniform transformative process that was the opinion of the home minister.
