My special mention about SCRA is because, I am member of SCRA 2001 batch (and it's now 2011 batch that is about enter Gymkhana and I am getting old :( ) . A brief info about the SCRA scheme is given below. Comments are invited.
Update- SCRA Exam 2015
So, Dear SCRA aspirants, SCRA Exam was last conducted on 18th January 2015. The next exam will be in 2016 may be in January. For updated and latest information on SCRA examination please visit UPSC website -> http://upsc.gov.in/ . Click Here to Visit the UPSC Online Application Website to fill in and register online for SCRA.
The SCRA scheme was started in 1927 by the British, to select a handful of most intelligent Indians to assist them in their Railway Operations, after training at their Railway's largest workshop, i.e. Jamalpur Workshop, and for one year in United Kingdom. The selected candidates were required to appear in the Mechanical Engineering Degree Exmination held by Engineering Council (London).
- Jamalpur Gymkhana The hostel For Scra
Since then, the few admission seats for one of the country's first engineering college have always been hotly contested, with as many as 1 to 1.5 lakh candidates taking the entrance examination, now conducted by UPSC, for about 10 seats.That translates into an astonishing ratio of 1 selection per 10,000 applicants
The scheme has continued to draw the country's best talent after independence and has provided Indian Railways with its top-ranking officers in all walks. Many of the Institute's alumni have won international accolade for having acheived excellence (Click Here For Achievers Else Where - these links have only old data as new stuff has not yet been updated) in their chosen careers, which include inventors, academicians, entrepreneurs, and high-ranking officers in other nations. Mr . R K Pachauri who is a world famous figure on Climate Change debate belongs to SCRA 1958 batch.
The examination comprises written test in Mathematics, Physics, Chemistry, English Language, General Knowledge, and Psychological Test (Mental Ability). The selected candidates are called for an interview, which is followed by a medical examination. The standard of syllabus is that of Class XII (CBSE equivalent).
The notice for the examination, along with form and syllabus, is brought out by the UPSC around the months of March-April every year. According to the new rules issued by the Ministry of Railways, the exam is now conducted once every two years. And recently UPSC started conducting exam every year
The selected candidates undergo a four-year rigorous training programme in Mechanical Engineering, for which the Institute has a Memorandum of Understanding with BIT, Mesra, Ranchi. The semester system of BIT, Mesra is followed, with workshop training sessions during the holidays at BIT, Mesra.
The apprentices get a stipend in the scale of Rs. 9360-13000 with Dearness Allowance,making the final emoluments upto Rs.13,000/- to 15,000/- , apart from medical benefits, privelege passes and PTOs.
After successful completion of four years of training, the candidates join as Indian Railway Services of Mechanical Engineers (IRSME) Officers in Indian Railways to face a challanging and satisfying career.

Yes i was in 2001 batch SCRA. My preparation for EAMCET (Engineering test of Andhra) helped me in qualifying SCRA at that time. Hadn't took any special coaching for SCRA. I haven't been qualified for IIT. I joined SCRA in 2002 August and now working in Railways :)

As far as UPSC is concerned there is always paper wise cut off for each an every exam including civil services.
here is the link
i think it would be sufficient...:-)

- There is no gender bias in SCRA. Girls are also selected - but till now the ratio was very poor.
- Generally most of the selected candidates are from UP and Bihar - where this exam has some craze. In southern part of India , this exam is almost unheard of.
- As far as I know for almost all UPSC exams, there will be no individual cutoffs. But I am not sure.
- For all exam related queries and qualifications - please visit UPSC website.
- No.of students called for interview will be genreally 4 to 5 times the number of vacancies.
- It is not that only IITians qualify for SCRA- it is true that competition is quiet tough, but if you are thorough with your subject- cracking SCRA shouldn't be a problem. But as I said in my discussion forum topic - don't rely only on SCRA, it should only be as a try and forget type exam.

as i didn't prepared for scra and since i have lost touch of solving problems fastly due to hectic college schedule. so i guess it would be atleast 60-70 more marks than my score. so it may be around 310. time had effect of my problem solving ability especially maths... i was slow at it. :-)

yes there is a bond for three years - after completion of four years - but for IAS/IPS there will be no problem - as they are also government services. The bond will come in to play when you r resigning from SCRA to join in other than government services
It's wrong - it will take no less than twenty years to become DRM
12 Jan 2013, 19:27
11 Jan 2013, 16:47
09 Jan 2013, 17:19
Is there any bond or refund if someone leaves this and joins other central government service like IAS or IPS???
08 Jan 2013, 11:59
You have to do the engineering all four years again if you have to join SCRA...... Any how you can attempt IES, on qualifying which you will get same job as SCRA qualified..
05 Jan 2013, 19:46
i studied SCRA - Lal and Jain
and newspaper for GK
also the concepts of +2 are important

it depends on how the level of paper is if it is tough
the cut-off will be low something around 240 and if it is
easy paper the cut off will be more than 350

be it studies, sports, co-curricular or anything else its always so much fun
actually there you aren't just students, you're Class I officers and you're expected to behave like that at all times
if you want to know any specific thing please let me know
24 Oct 2012, 18:15
I guess that my last question was perhaps a way too generalised. I will try to be more specific here. Is there really some sort of schedule that people have to follow there? Is it compulsory to play sport for certain no. of hours?
I would be very grateful if you would kindly answer my queries. Thanks!

yeah, IITians are not god, I know that. but they know how to work hard, cause that is how they got into these much coveted institute in the first place.
In my city, IIT is the ultimate thing, people feel as if it is the only place of excellence in the world.( though i feel that this opinion is held mostly by numerous aunty(s) in this city)
but, IIT is great, NO DOUBT about that. If you have to apply to a foreign place for an intern, people do not even look at your file if it does not mention IIT, that is what my friend told me, whose sister is in kharagpur.
anyways best of luck for your interview!
did you make it? you must have.... congrats :)
15 May 2012, 00:30
15 May 2012, 00:21
Well last time i was selected there but didnt make it this time. Aise me lagta hai ki mai sabse bada naalayak hu. :D
14 May 2012, 21:44
asked have very high packages and full of thrilling life.But i believe that it is because best brains are attracted to it.U can get highest package too if u are interested in ur brach and take right decisions at right time

14 May 2012, 20:39
14 May 2012, 20:05
I was getting 290 according to resonance, so, quite naturally, I did not make it. I mean when IITians like you are in the fray, where people are claiming to get 400, what chance did I have?
of course, i did not work as hard as i should have and, as a result, I got what a useless wanker like me deserved.
I have a friend ( who does NOT belong to privileged class) who was also getting 360. I am sure that he must have got in, but I can't confirm that as I haven't had a word with him.
A very hearty congratulation once again! best of luck for your interview :)

damn, this is stupid :-)
12 May 2012, 20:07
but it turned out to be a recruitment advt. :( WHEN WILL THE DAMN RESULT COME?????????????????????????
if you look carefully at the advt. it is meant for employment news, like any govt. thing. the issue in question is next issue i.e. 12th to 18th May. So i guess that we will have those results after 18th or maybe in june or NEXT YEAR. WHO KNOWS??
please excuse my impatience. I am a student just like you guys and I'm fairly certain that you can sympathize with me.
12 May 2012, 19:54
12 May 2012, 17:22
12 May 2012, 15:13
the link is still not working. maybe that is because "The server at upsc.gov.in is taking too long to respond."
in other words, the site is currently down.... maybe they are finally uploading SCRA results, who knows????
and your link appears to be correct, cause as per the final result list of scra 2011, arvind kumar meena was indeed the last candidate on that list, and his roll no. is 009166 and judging by your link, i'm fairly certain that his DOB is 12th april 1994.
maybe the link will work, when site comes back to normal.
again, no offense man. peace:)
but why did you post the same link twice?? one time is sufficient.
12 May 2012, 13:01
The link is absolutely correct.you must be careful in copying that link.
I can disclose marks of many other but it would be violation of privacy.hence i will not publish anybody's marks here in public.Believe it or not...
12 May 2012, 12:53
arvind kumar meena.
I have received my marks also on my email address.Thank you again for telling me my marks.
12 May 2012, 12:28
12 May 2012, 11:46
however,in my opinion, they should (rather will) select (or take) the candidate, if he/she produces the relevant documents.
12 May 2012, 11:03
oh thanks Mr. Shaw for your attention. Can u please tell me one more thing, will they necessarily take the provisional candidate if the required documents are produced???
12 May 2012, 03:06
why are you posting an invalid link again and again?? and marks of Mr. Meena are not of a great importance because, as the name suggests, he doesn't belong to general category.
why should we send you our roll no.s ? it is clear that you are a hoax.
how are you?? when are you appearing in bitsat? mine's on 16th
11 May 2012, 23:50
11 May 2012, 21:37
In my opinion, "CANDIDATURE PROVISIONAL" means that the candidate will be selected only if they produce relevant documents which will prove that they have scored appropriate marks and (if they fall under "privileged classes") then they produce a genuine copy of that "golden pass" ( cast certificate)
11 May 2012, 20:55

i can't view the marks of Arvind kr Meena

are you sure? when will results be out? at mid night or in the morning? can you please mention the time if you know it?
I sincerely hope that you are giving us an authentic picture, well, we'll know that tomorrow...........

10 May 2012, 13:39
we can only know that once marksheets are out, and that happens after the declaration of final results.
when will this damn result come?? upsc is truly acting like a srakari organization, and like our trains are usually late, even this result is late ; but trains do not get delayed to this extent.
the notification stated that results would be declared in march/april...... IT IS 10th MAY today !!!
10 May 2012, 09:34
09 May 2012, 19:02
then maybe someone else may say something else, a new date.
i hope that this drama ends soon and we will have the results tomorrow.

stop this abcdefghij.. nonsense. will it kill you to post your real name??
results are still not out. I believe that they could come in the next issue of employment news i.e. 12th may or so, since they sre not in this issue.
whatever, results will come when they have to, nothing much can be done or said about it, till then.

haven't your classes started yet ????????????
05 May 2012, 21:42
I have had a look at 2011 notification. It stated that results would be declared in November 2011 and UPSC honored their notification that year.
parbhai aur kitna time lagegea is bar? results of civil services main exam are also out now. maybe we will have the results soon.
04 May 2012, 20:59
that is awesome! I am getting a very low score, compared to you....
04 May 2012, 16:38
its ok yaar...chill! i understand that, n shudnt have asked again n again, actually i just wanted wanted to know the source of info so as to get its authenticity..nothing else.. :)
04 May 2012, 09:58
aieee was fine.
getting 290 by reso ans key
04 May 2012, 07:44
It will be out around 10th.
That is MY guess, and the source of this information is me and only me. If you look at previous years' pattern, you'd also think that result will be out around 10th of may
In 2011 SCRA on 31st July and results were out on 18th November i.e. 3 months and 18 days later.
in 2010, SCRA exam was held on 19th December and the results were out on 11th April 2011, 3 months 20 days later.
in 2009 SCRA exam was on 26th July and the results were out on 4th nov 3 months 10 days later.
I may have calculated the time lag of results incorrectly, but you get the drift...
accordingly exams were on 29th Jan this year and results will come around 10th May.
Hey I have just repeated the information given below, and maybe this a bit too overly reaction to a possible mere expression of impatience which many (including ME) can sympathize with.
Anyways please be patient, what else can anyone say?
btw, how was your AIEEE? It is okay if you do not want to post about it on a "public" forum :)
04 May 2012, 06:39
i'm sorry if you felt that i was being "too loud" about it
actually you see its exasperating when the same question is put up again and again (ie where did i get the info from) and i've said the same thing in my previous posts that i said on 3rd
again sorry if that hurt you
04 May 2012, 02:30
03 May 2012, 22:37
yes, i definitly know dat railway ministry does nt have only SCRA candidates to deal with, but being one atleast u had only SCRA to deal with. also, its not a a very big task if u cud have sked it to them. n anyways, it was just a query from my side, a simple one..nothing to be too loud about. n again i say, its good if we receive the letters soon.
03 May 2012, 14:14
thanks for leaving a reply (even though it was not intended for me)
03 May 2012, 07:40
i hope you know that railway ministry does not have only scra candidates to deal with so obviously i didn't ask them
i got this information from one of the ppl whose nephew joined scra last year he said that now that the final year students are leaving we will be getting our letters in this month itself
03 May 2012, 01:46
n u STILL didnt tell me from where u r creating perceptions regarding the arrival of the letter. HAVE YOU CONTACTED THE RAILWAY MINISTRY?
03 May 2012, 01:43
ok..i to m hoping fr it to come as soon as possible. yes, m preparing for my end semester exams. n wat abt u?
02 May 2012, 23:20
Results are not there, which means that they are not out yet.
Such nonsense by Aman Jain and company must stop. Please do not play with student's feelings.
02 May 2012, 20:58
01 May 2012, 21:37
One suggestion is, since your are the old student people will look here for the total information, that is after SCRA, how the life is, whats their immediate position.. their structure (salary..other perks...other infmn reg.job), and their prospesective positions how they will grow ..with time gaps... and maximum level reach. The information that is given by you is most what it is in prospectus.
Also you can comment in comparing with the latest trend that is facing by the similar youth and the changing tastes.
Another important one should observe is the very lengthy time UPSC?SCRA taking in admissions starting from Date of Examinations Final admissions. In meanwhile students would invariable have to take decision of their admission in various institutions that would have been completed before the time (JUNE of every year!!)
01 May 2012, 17:51
i said by the end of May it may (and so I hope !) come earlier
if you don't mind may i ask you as to what you're doing now as in preparing for your exams or ..
by the way any news on the routine of the SCRAs
01 May 2012, 13:47
wow..thats good if our classes will begin first. However i have contacted a few people in jamalpur and they have told me that the classes of 2011 n 2012 will start together..but if ur sources are better and true then i am really happy..! anyways, as far as the letter is concerned, mine have told me that it wud come somewhere in my beginning...have u contacted the railways ministry regarding this...?
01 May 2012, 12:31
if the candidate has cleared the medical then the letter will be sent to him/her by the end of May
no the classes of only those candidates who have cleared SCRA 2011 will commence now
itna intzaar kiya hai hamne, thoda toh 2012 waalon ko bhi karna chahiye !
01 May 2012, 12:20
I have asked for the result of medical test which was held from 22th feb to 24th feb at delhi. (Not for the results for the interview)????
01 May 2012, 12:17
01 May 2012, 08:05
what? SCRA classes haven't even started! that is too much. results for the interview were out on 9th Jan.

I guess that you are talking about Sachin Tendulkar being nominated to rajya sabha.
I do not know if he is incapable of being a politician, but it is definitely a fact that he still wants to play a lot of cricket.he was quoted quite recently saying that he wants to play the next world cup.
read this blog ( you may have already read it)
I am no expert on politics, but I follow it keenly. My only contention is that he may not find time to sit in the parliament and attend Rajya Sabha proceedings for he obviously has a very busy schedule.
Well it shouldn't matter much because not much work happens in parliament anyways. Our legislator's job is to pass legislation. this is what we vote them for. this is what they get paid for ( by our hard earned taxpayer's money)
BUT KEY BILLS ARE SIMPLY STALLED IN PARLIAMENT.
I had to use uppercase, because it is so frustrating. One gets angry when his/her servant does not do the job of cleaning the house properly, similarly I am extremely angry at these public servants a.k.a MPs.
Delhi is gripped in a policy paralysis. Files are moving at a snail's pace. Parliament is simply a tamasha for 24*7 news channels.
you are faced with discouraging economic figures on a daily basis. India has got so much potential but that is not being en-cashed. We have shot ourselves on the foot.
agreed that you can't grow by leap and bounds when europe is in recession.
Maybe as Ruchir Sharma of Morgan Stanley has put it quite simply that we,a had got used to 8-9% growth which happened during 2002- 2008 and thought that India's time has come, and we can go on like this forever and we will always rock.
But that euphoria was not unique to India. Every asset, every country grew at a frenzied pace during those years. to quote him ' It was a high tide which lifted all the boats'. hence India had this phenomenal growth at that time.
Now that 'high tide' is gone our growth has slumped back to pre-2002 levels of >6%
to generate that high tide you need second generation of reforms. More than that, you need a Government which does its job of taking decisions. you need an opposition which does not oppose to things they would have done had they been in power. You need people to talk SENSE.
You need a cabinet which functions as a proper cabinet where PM is the boss. In this govt. every minister runs the ministry like his own personal fiefdom. Coalition partners think that they 'own' their ministries and can do whatever they please with them.
I strongly think that we should have a presidential form of government because the current system of cabinet form of govt. is being simply butchered,humiliated and exploited in every possible manner.
I can write on and on and on about this subject. But I remember what my history teacher told me once ( too bad I never had the pleasure of studying under him) " politics is a game of intelligent to keep fools busy."
Maybe I fit well in that category of fools. Yes, I have no qualms in saying that I am an idiot :)
That is why you have tushar saying
"waise bhi webadmin bhi nahi dyan de rhe hai is blog par log ab faltu ki comment jyada karne lage hai............"
yeah, that is what I have been told, that focus on your study buddy, politics and such stuff is useless.
It is this middle class apathy to politics which is very, very bad.
this is what people will tell you, focus on your study, prepare for SCRA, get into jamalpur, get out of jamalpur, then have a good career at railways and don't worry or think about politics because it is too bad and nasty for us english speaking moralistic middle class kids.
For if you talk about this stuff and don't study then
"aur yha par apna result wale dyan rakh l kisi ka bhi nahi hona hai ye mai 100% kha rha hu................."
you have been warned.
what a shame!
I am glad that you are concerned about the world around you and I want to thank you for providing me a chance to write something on it.
I'd however, like to tell you ( as well as to myself) that just don't speak, do something about it when the time comes.
Just do not sit and crib about it. Try a hand at public life, maybe that will make us ( definitely me) appreciate the difficult job that these public servants have to do.
Study well and do something good like rishabh and do not let you jee become a disaster like mine was.
I have a question for 'genuine' and esha, have their classes at jamalpur started?? Please leave a reply.
29 Apr 2012, 11:10
Politics has become so cheap that in order to save their sinking ship they use dirty weapons by welocming incapable persons in the politics.
24 Apr 2012, 00:07
thnks fr ur wishes
i sincerely feel u hv given very valuable comments on the forum and i do wish u make it to jamalpur or any other place which has the best future for u.
well its besides the point but what is ur real name????
23 Apr 2012, 20:17
It seems that people have deserted this forum.Maybe we will see some activity after SCRA results are out.
I don't think that people are performing publicity stunts here.
All the best! I hope that you get into NUS! I think that you will.
also I want to sincerely apologize to all if my comments have ever 'misguided' you. I think that they shouldn't have.
I also believe that 'esha' and 'genuine' have got there letters. Maybe that is why they have stopped posting their favorite question "got the letter?"
I wish them all the best. I hope that they have a good time at Jamalpur.
This will be my last post. I will post again only if I qualify SCRA. Though going by tushar's prediction ( read imprecation)
it is unlikely that I will get in.
22 Apr 2012, 21:11
You are absolutely correct.
22 Apr 2012, 19:11
some stricter restrictions should be imposed on who must post in comments here.
See, even I can post a comment in the name of anonymous!!
21 Apr 2012, 19:10
I totally agree with you. although 'echt' does not need to request webadmin only, Mr. tushar can execute your request too.
If my statement is factually incorrect then it can be removed.
21 Apr 2012, 19:04
whenever SCRA result will come, it will be on UPSC site first.
I visit that page EVERY DAY.The result is not out.
Please do not post such useless comments.
I request webadmin to remove those meaningless comments..
21 Apr 2012, 11:36
i have hv chcked the emp news and no result is there.
pls. be factual and give correct info.
21 Apr 2012, 11:20

I agree with 'aspirant'.getting a scholarship will be tough.
But I believe that you will get in there because you are going to have a 3000-4000 rank in JEE besides a 94+ score in boards.
NUS takes JEE rank into consideration, you must be knowing that.
I do not know much, but as I researched before on the admission process at NUS on the internet, I guess that it should be enough.
I have no idea about this chineese quota though.
21 Apr 2012, 00:04
but i'll be wid ntu which is also not far behind nus.
how did u get to know abt the reservation in nus.
is it also there in ntu???
20 Apr 2012, 21:24
this year the intake at NUS is loaded in favour of chineese ... they enjoy 70% reservation this year.... you see NUS changes its focus on countries... two years ago it was india (2012 saw some 80 odd students making it to NUS)..
however f you happen to qualify JEE u will get mercy admission into a vocational branch at NUS ... however you might have to face some competition for scholarship!
best of luck!
20 Apr 2012, 15:53
20 Apr 2012, 15:35
yes i have already applied to nus and ntu,
even smu economics for back up.
shashwat nus has some wonderful scholarships available,
making the cost extremely low eg,sia-nol scholarship which reduce the cost to Rs.0.besides there are edu loans which start repayment only after u bag a job.besides singapore is the best location for indians.no racism(as it is multiracial with lots of indians),one of the most developed cities of the world and very close by to out nation(unlike us or uk).
yes i have applied to bits,aieee,vit(which is tomorrow).
20 Apr 2012, 08:45
dude, that is awesome. I believe that you want a branch like CS or electrical at Bombay or Delhi, which is why you are terming 3000-4000 rank in JEE as a debacle.
About profile of selected candidates in NUS, you can search the net and see what you get.
but man, the last date for application there was 1st April 2012. have you already filled the form? I hope you have.
you are getting a great 94+ in boards. that and your jee rank will definitely book you a place at NUS.
NUS is an awesome place. it is much better for engineering than IITs. It ranks in top 20s for engineering in the world.
You will definitely make it ( if you have filled the form).
but the only negative aspect is money.
with tuition fees + living expenses at 10 lakh per year, not many can afford it.
I most certainly can not.
and by the way congratulations for making it to iits. I scored a pathetic score. It is much below 35%. completely, utterly, totally hopeless. And I feel the same about SCRA the way you do.though judging your assessment in boards (94+) and IIT , you are going to get in SCRA.
are you giving AIEEE and BITSAT too? any other exams in your kitty? I am curious.
20 Apr 2012, 08:43
if you're confident about you iit and board results then you stand a good chance of getting through scra too
19 Apr 2012, 19:59
i am expecting a rank of 3000-4000 in iitjee besides a decent 94+ board result.
now after the iit debacle i sincerely hope to qualify for national university of singapore.can anyone inform me about the profiles of previously selected candidates.
p.s.although i am hopeful about the scra result but with what people have said abt the exam on this forum or other places ,i have started counting myself out.
19 Apr 2012, 19:32
yeah, the notification clearly states that results will be in march/april.
Let us hope that UPSC honors it. However, I must say that going by the past history of upsc as @echt has posted below, results are expected in May, if history is adhered to.
Results will come when they have to come, my speculation will have no effect on it whatsoever.
I don't know man, predicting the date for results is like predicting the results for next general elections (which I guess, will be in 2014) :)
19 Apr 2012, 13:53
when do you think the results will come??
the notification clearly mentions march/april.
but some people are saying that it would be out by may.
19 Apr 2012, 09:53
you are right. I had posted the marks of harish mahadasu and swadhinta das on this forum before. but swadhinta had made her disquiet known and I asked webadmin to remove that 'objectionable' post of mine. In her opinion marks of the candidates should not be made public without their consent.
I believe that ( as Tushar has already said) many questions in SCRA had multiple answers.Hence answer keys of aryan classes and resonance can not be completely trusted. Moreover, UPSC is such an experienced organisation that the difficulty level of the exam can be assumed to be nearly same every year, for the simple reason that UPSC has been conducting this exam for such a long time.
I may be proved wrong, lets wait for the results.
19 Apr 2012, 06:22
19 Apr 2012, 03:43
i manged to find marks of harish mahasadu
roll no.=134480 and dob=02/07/1993
he got only 325.
thus i strongly feel that the claims of scoring above 400
or 350 are completely baseless and have eroded the purpose of discussion on the forum.i also feel that the webadmin who is himself an scra should participate more in discussions on the forum.
18 Apr 2012, 19:56
hence, he must be someone close to webadmin, or he is an alibi for webadmin, who knows?
18 Apr 2012, 10:20
agreed the tushar effect
17 Apr 2012, 18:52
I do not know about webadmin, but I liked the discussions that happened here.
arre, jo bhi baat ho, do not desert this forum.
And I do not by this 100% guarantee of tushar. let us see what happens... btw, why didn't he typed his comments in a single post ? why use multiples? maybe to create the 'tushar' effect wherein everyone stops posting on this forum.
17 Apr 2012, 09:30
hello! can you please tell us who are you? are you a close pal of webadmin or a manager of this site or a teacher at a coaching class for scra or a student or just a simple commentator?
15 Apr 2012, 18:19
yha par comment karne mai to sab SCRA qualified hai
bhaiyo may tak intjar karo result aa jayega

In coachin there are 100 students studying together, which is just a waste of time for those who are preparing for IIT-JEE.
but the thing is that there must not be a single paper of IIT containing AIEEE also
13 Apr 2012, 14:31
it is "careers" not "carriers".
13 Apr 2012, 12:59
13 Apr 2012, 08:47
I meant a SAT like exam, happening 4 times in an year, with scores valid for a particular period, with which you can get admission to many colleges.
but that will NEVER happen for the simple reason that colleges make a lot of money by conducting their own entrance exams and more importantly, people do not even like the thought of change in the system.
they say that IITs have given us so many great men and women who have excelled in their carriers. hence, many argue, that IITs should be left out of this business of common test as they are an institute of great stature ( no doubt about that), this common test thing should apply to others.
but i have a premonition that this common test thing won't happen, even if it is called for, even when you have a report by prof. Yashpal (ex-chairperson of UGC) revealing that a student can take as many as 400 entrance exams after passing 12, this won't happen as people are highly averse to sense in this country ( it seems)
what may happen, is that JEE and AIEEE will be combined, at best.
but that won't solve anything.
13 Apr 2012, 07:25
dude SAT aint that good an option because it wouldnt single out talent .... take for example the leveling effect of water...
though i believe that the admission process should start once one enters 12th and must definitely consist of an interview so thatr the professors can themselves look out for those willing to contribute to technology!
12 Apr 2012, 15:57
may I ask, who constitute 'most of them' ? your friends, i guess.
regarding changing pattern of JEE, well I can't say much about it as we do not know what the final picture is going to be like.
All I can say is that board marks should not be given such a high weight-age as that is not practical. you can not have uniformity in the level of examinations conducted be CBSE, ICSE, West Bengal board, UP board, Maharashtra, Andhra, Chhattisgarh borad. no statistical formula (which is proposed to be devised by Indian Statistical Institute) can ensure a uniformity.
In my opinion, the best thing to be done is to combine JEE and AIEEE, ensure that IIT organize the exam and set the question paper.
OR, carry on with the present system and raise the minimum qualifying marks from 60% to 80% (as is the case in BIT-SAT)
the thing with the common entrance exam is that many private colleges and state boards do not want it because for the simple reason that a lot of money is made in these examinations, consider the fees for these exams :-
IIT - 1625
AIEEE - 900
BITSAT - 1600
VITEEE - 900
SCRA - 100 (only!!!!!!)
So you can see that many organisations, particularly the private ones, will lobby against a common test.
Of course, it is an expenditure to conduct an examination, but still, a LOT of money is made in this process.
And, I have a feeling that a common entrance exam of the likes of SAT is definitely needed in our country, but that may never happen, because it seems ( this is my perception, which may be incorrect) that people do not want sensible things to happen in this country. Look at the mess the railways is in today, look at the way our govt. functions, with every minister running the his ministry like his own fiefdom, in turn, making a complete caricature of cabinet form of govt. in this process.
Lets see what happens.I'd like to read others opinion on this issue.

the notification can be seen at the following
12 Apr 2012, 08:12
in 2009 SCRA exam was on 26th July and the results were out on 4th nov 3 months 10 days later.
accordingly this year exam was on 29 Jan and results may come during 10th to 20th May.
12 Apr 2012, 02:20
notification explicitly states the results are "LIKELY" to be declared in march/april 2012.
In 2011 SCRA was on 31st july and result of the written exam was declared on 18th November i.e.3 and a half months later.
So it is a reasonable assumption, that results this year too may come after three and a half months i.e. around 15th May.
anyways result will come whenever UPSC declares them and one shouldn't be bothered much about the date when it comes.
I hope that you are proved correct and that UPSC honors its notification and we can have the results in April itself :)

no i didn't appear for scra 2012
10 Apr 2012, 18:19
scroll down and have a look at the earlier posts.I am telling you, NO one can predict what the cut off is.It is like, as mentioned before, predicting the results of next general elections, or guessing if genuine [who is in NIT Trichy, respect:-) ] or esha will ever reply to my query ( i admit that the latter point is irrelevant).
results will be out in may, just wait till then, or else you can read the otiose posts present below pertaining to this question and you will get no where.
Wait for a month or so, results will be out :)

after the written exam comes the interview and then the training
got the letter ?
08 Apr 2012, 11:12
07 Apr 2012, 19:36
esha is correct. though i can not say much on this subject as i haven't cleared SCRA.
oh and btw you should ask Mr. Tushar- the undisputed, impeccable, erudite encyclopedia of SCRA.
he can tell you a great deal about the marks that the selected students score and that kind of stuff.
it is really sad to see him being absent from this forum :(
In my opinion, have a look at previous years papers and get thorough with NCERT books. it will help :)
07 Apr 2012, 19:24
just a month of dedicated preparation is needed in order to clear SCRA
the level of questions is definitely not like IIT or AIEEE but they certainly need some practice GAT is also fine as long as you are an avid reader of newspapers
ALL THE BEST !!!
07 Apr 2012, 17:45
ask genuine and esha, they have cleared SCRA!
I hope that they will be kind enough and leave a reply for YOU.
07 Apr 2012, 13:27

did u asked any officials about it...???

dunno what time but it will come in may
04 Apr 2012, 01:57
you guys cleared scra in 2011,and still your course hasn't started or has it? i am a bit confused.
please be kind and leave a reply :)
03 Apr 2012, 15:50
How are you so sure about it? and by what time in may will it come?
02 Apr 2012, 07:58
the letter will come in May
01 Apr 2012, 21:51
01 Apr 2012, 14:31
I agree with @the fake tushar ( you really need to scroll a lot to read comments on this page). where is he? i'd like to know his opinion on this issue..
31 Mar 2012, 22:54

31 Mar 2012, 08:05
woah!woah! you are right.
and thanks for posting that article...
but not ALL iitians get into 'simple' corporate life. I have a cousin brother who graduated from iit kanpur. He is working in delhi, in some IT firm along with his friends , just to save enough money to start his own business of designing apps for mobile phones.
another guy from my city, who i know well personally, graduated from IIT bombay received his phd in physics few days ago in USA. he is doing research there. ( I don't want to name them as it is not my prerogative to disclose their details)
31 Mar 2012, 07:46
Well in that case im wasting some time in even thinking of replying to such claims!
I would like to mention that i hold nothing against IITians. Its just that earlier people wanted to be doctors because they wanted to serve and engineers because they wanted to build or create however of late its all boiled down to over esteemed vile trash people call cash...
31 Mar 2012, 07:33
Vision : To be the fountainhead of new ideas and of innovators in technology and science
Mission : To create an ambience in which new ideas, research and scholarship flourish and from which the leaders and innovators of tomorrow emerge
Trading stocks,marketing,venture capitalism come nowhere close to these ideals.
I was just curious to know how many IITians who go onto do MBA actually want to work for Indian firms and if they work for overseas firm how does it add to Indian glory apart from the fact that a few indians are taking care of themselves?
30 Mar 2012, 19:06
I want to thank you for your opinion, and particularly, for pointing my wrong points :)
i am just an 18 year old, who has to appear in mighty JEE in 9 days from now. I do not know how a workplace works but I just thought that after doing an electrical engineering, then an MBA then selling biscuits or tooth paste or working in a big profile banking or consultancy firm may kind of less use the engineering knowledge, gained at iits.
Regarding my point about 'nobody wants to be an engineer'. well, maybe I was being a bit paranoid here, but a lot of my friends who will be at iits have no clue why do they want to engineering. It is just that, everybody does it in my IIT crazy town ( no, I do not live in Kota) and people just follow the herd.
It is because of that human psychology of living in a flock, very few dare to not move along the herd, very few take 'the path less traveled by'
That is why you had Mr. Narayan Murthy making the comment that 20% students at IIT are excellent, rest not so good. I guess that you can make such a statement regarding any institute...
30 Mar 2012, 14:03
"We can not compare an army job with a Microsoft Job - it's all individual choice."
Glad to see some serious discussion - but here data seems to be getting cramped- I request members to use Discussion Forums if possible. Details on the page
30 Mar 2012, 12:28
However, they seem to be slightly wrong on certain aspects
1. When US advisor to state visited Indian firms and saw their growth, he came up with the conclusion that iitians (after pursuing mba) are a big helping hand in India's growth. They 'do not rubbish their engineering prowess'in any way but use it more efficiently thus helping firms sustain recession times.
2.What is this echt 'nobody wants to be an engineer' ?This is very sad to read. If that is the case iits will lose all their glory the very next day.people with that attitude are thrown out of iits.
We have nothing against you .
(to be continued with regards!)
29 Mar 2012, 09:19
28 Mar 2012, 23:38
i and i am sure Nariyan Murthy meant top 20% of the students at IIT not the top 20% of jee rank achievers..
and I didn't understand what you meant by parents bailing out their children. can you please explain that??
and you are right. it is very unfortunate that 'success' is judged by your package. but what to do, they say it is kalyug...
28 Mar 2012, 18:36
iitjee 2011 rank 2: Shubham Mehta and rank 5: nisheet lahoti had been training at resonance right from class 7!
do u understand what that means 5 years of investment to achieve what is mean to be achieved in 1yr 7 months sure they will stand out anywhere in the world and mind you im not saying cream doesnt get into iits ... one of my friend was iiio gold medalist and imo camp participant... he didnt make it to iits but got into mit.. so what im trying to say is this: though there are still brilliant student who get into iits the standard of average iitian has dipped ( mind you any institution/organization/country is judged by the standard of commoner not toppers...) moreover how can these brilliant student flourish when they dont get branch of their choice as their AIR does not permit them! Yo got to have vocational education system... its like telling Brian Lara in old days not to take up batting because West Indies had plenty of top order batsmen...
As far as doing an MBA is concerned well the system is to be blamed... because a student is forced to study something he didnt want he obviously has pretty slim chances of carrying out research and after all success in Indian society is unfortunately judged by the college you attend and the kind of package you land up with.. so the poor souls have nothing better to do other than joining iits (against their choice of branch) and doing MBA... only parents can bail out guys from such situation by conferring their support but how many actually do that? After all we all have neighbors and relatives dont we ?
28 Mar 2012, 17:28
it is true that iit is not what it used to be, thanks to the mentality of the students and their parents and the coaching institutes.
28 Mar 2012, 12:08
standards at IIT have fallen because of students. nobody wants to be an engineer, everybody wants to be an IITian. ask any aspirant what branch he wants to do engineering in, why is he so crazy for engineering, and the majority of them have no answer....
Narayan Murthy, the founder of infosys has said that the top 20% at IIT can stand out any where in the world, but ssame cannot be said for the rest 80%
after all more than 40% of engineers who graduate from IIT do an MBA later, thus kind of rubbishing their great engineering prowess.. as a job after an MBA fetches big bucks... but one is forced to ask what is happening here?
coaching classes, misguided students, persisting parents, well the entire SYSTEM is to be blamed....
28 Mar 2012, 11:36
thanks to you-know-who, railways will head towards bankruptcy.
read this article written by Sultan Ahmad, MP of TMC in business standard dated 14th March 2012
He says that if govt. can bail out air india, ( which it has not) it should bail out railways too. you get it, they will push railways into a corner, into such a sorry state, that it will need a bail out.your and mine hard earned taxpayer's money will go to subsidize our railways.
The govt. of india spends over one LAKH crore on oil subsidies, 80,000 crore on fertiliser subsidies and just 50,000 crore on sarva shiksha abhiyan.... What is happening here? in the name of over populism, compulsive populism, people are not talking sense. In the name of protecting poor, fares are not increased even after 10 long years, WHEN INFLATION INCREASED BY 300% and freight fares are hiked constantly, in order to shield aam admi from a just and actual cost of rail travel. As a result he is burdened with high inflation, who cares about that? these leaders are so concerned about poor aam admi. never mind that this practice raises the price of essential commodities like food, oil and so many other things.
So what, they say. Never mind that rail travel is an non essential commodity as it is planned well in advance.our leaders say, we will continue to subsidize rail travel increase freight charges and burden the common man with inflation.....
railways are running on an operating ratio of a mere 98%. i.e. only 2 rupees are left as surplus for every 100 rupees railways earns. in the previous fiscal year, railways had a turnover of one lakh crore and a surplus of a mere 1000 crore.
How do you expect new projects to crop up in such circumstances? You need modernization in railways, you need safety equipment for all of that you NEED MONEY.
and here you do not even have money to run railways, so much it has been forced to subsidize. this year railways had to take a loan of 3000 crore from finance ministry to balance their budget.
You are absolutely correct esha, railways will NEVER go bankrupt, cause it is much, much bigger than air india and many other loss making PSUs that govt. runs, it will never go bust, govt. can't allow that as it has 14 lakh employees.
but then in a country that aspires to be a superpower, you can not have stations and trains infested with cockroaches and rats. you can not have food and trash piled on tracks. you can not allow your passengers to bear the wonderful aroma of human shit, whenever they have to wait for their train, after all we have been defecating on the face of our nation, thanks to railways.
please, esha, I know that railways will always be there, but the rumor that it may head towards bankruptcy is NOT baseless.
As a matter of fact, it is heading there at full speed thanks to you-know-who, She must realize that she has to run a govt. not campaign as in an election the way she is doing now.
I totally agree with you. spot on!

27 Mar 2012, 23:27
railways are and would always be evergreen in india. The current scenario may indicate otherwise but that is a temporary issue. Indian railways has seen and has successfully recovered from these kinds of situations before. Talking about scra; you dont have any right to enforce your opinion(which according to me is wrong) on others. And regarding your opinion that scra is merely keeping alive british tradition, one can surely say that the britishers atleast did some good to india railways and thus scra being major examples
27 Mar 2012, 19:18
at least here you have the general ability paper and the interview which gauges the overall personality of a candidate something which jee lacks... 12 lpa (a very good salary for starters from iit) compared to say 40k (not sure abt exact starting salary) is still a loss cause in private you have to take care of a lot of things housing, conveyance etc.. not to mention the insecurity these jobs instill in you.... lastly if a person thinks that he shudnt be joining something because its a loss for him (the case is different if you are not interested) then trust me no matter where this person goes no matter which organization backs him, he will never be able to make it count because fearing failure is equivalent to accepting mediocrity!
nothing personal bra!
27 Mar 2012, 19:09
What did you say.. scra engg degree sucks and some tradition think... brah y dont u bite this: "IITS have lost their glorey due to the screwed up coaching industry...you dont have to be intelligent to get through all you need is those prep classes right from class 8 with a hell lot of willingness to give up on childhood...coming to ur research crap...IITs have never been renowned for their research work..they have been known for the cream they wiped out of masses via JEE which used to be subjective... ever since the objective pattern has come into picture the profs arent happy with the lot they get! By placements I am sure you mean pimping the stocks cause core placements suck of late..(i do not consider verbose coding for an it firm to be core)...guess what the govt has realised all this and decided to get rid of the TRADITIONAL JEE..
Now coming to SCRA.... no matter how easy the paper is as compared to JEE (though of late even that aint the case... 60 tough questions in 3 hrs to 300 moderate questions in 4 hrs)

many of guys in my dad's office who recruited through deutation basis are from railways because they got frustated from non stop transfer throughout country and workload.
btw railway recruit (can recuit) enough mechanical guys from enginneering service examination.
27 Mar 2012, 11:28
this place used to house great discussions, sadly people have left it it seems...
25 Mar 2012, 20:20
when will scra classes start???
when will result for 2012 come?????????????????
WHERE ARE YOU?? please,answer soon!
25 Mar 2012, 16:38
when will the scra 2011 classes start ??????????
pleaseeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeee tell asap
25 Mar 2012, 13:57
i repeat, will the real Mr. Tushar please stand up?
we have got a problem here.
24 Mar 2012, 14:28
Ask Mr. Tushar-the expert on SCRA
24 Mar 2012, 14:27
Around mid of may, i guess.
24 Mar 2012, 13:47
23 Mar 2012, 19:14
of course, SCRA has turned anti-poor cause only super rich come into it, right?? <sarcasm implied>
it is against the 3 M's and hence must be scraped....
Railways is proceeding towards its ruin. 'green' light has been show to it.
God help us!
maybe i am being a bit paranoid here.there will be no scra in 2013 as railways does not have more vacancies.
they can not modernize as in the name of populism they are forced to spend 20,000 crore in subsidizing passenger travel.
With an operating ratio of 98% how can we expect them to hire more people for non feasible modernization and expansion plans, when it has been robbed of its money?
I have immense respect for the actual guys who run railways, how they do so despite so many constraints is really commendable.
that is why I wanted to join this organisation as the challenges here are manifold, and there is so much more to do...
and recruiting 100 workers makes a more populist,pro poor, pro-aam aadmi statement, right?
if you can recruit 100 gangman at the cost of 40 officers, then why not do it?? ( i am definitely being paranoid here)
it is all about populism...
if these comments will either jeopardize you or your job ( i hope that does not happen) then you can delete it.
I do not want you to receive some crazy show-cause notice on my account...
Help!Help! railways needs your help!!!
23 Mar 2012, 18:47
how can you be so sure?
there may be no SCRA exam in 2013, but surely there will one in 2014....

janab, why don't you respond to the query of genuine and esha regarding stay at jamalpur??
I believe that you knowing almost all facts about getting into SCRA also will have some clue regarding their 'genuine' doubts.
I too have the same doubt.
WEBADMIN, please answer...
21 Mar 2012, 07:16
okay. i get it. :) you do NOT need to be sorry about that.
i am sorry for pestering you incessantly, unnecessarily.....
20 Mar 2012, 08:11

Well, webadmin knows who i am...He has my email id... :)
Anyways, i'm not neglecting ur query...its just that i don't want to disclose my identity...yun hi... i don't like it... anyways, sorry for that.

why don't you tell us who you are? perhaps webadmin wants to know who you are, i reckon. who are you? why do you want to be anonymous??
i believe that you will ignore this query too..... 'geniune'ly sad :(
19 Mar 2012, 20:35
18 Mar 2012, 12:09
17 Mar 2012, 12:04
why don't you reveal your identity?
and ask these questions to Tushar ji . i think that the SCRA encyclopedia can answer your queiry.....
17 Mar 2012, 09:22
please tell us whether all this is true
14 Mar 2012, 10:15
huh! that is terrible, i mean not the part of physical exercises but that of minimum sleep...Damn! how are we going to tolerate that..! Please WEBADMIN, answer it and say that all that is false...!
13 Mar 2012, 19:48
i have heard( only HEARD ok !!!! ) that at least during first year ( first month being the toughest), the student are passed through much hard work. E.g. Only 4 hours (12 am to 4 am) sleep per day, running (as much as 25 rounds of ground in order to gain membership of club) and other physical exercises for 2 hours from 4 to 6 both morning and evening (total becoming 4 hours a day) , whole day long workshops and no laptop allowed.One has to memorize about all scra engineers of past 10 years in the 1st year.
Are these facts true ?
13 Mar 2012, 15:39
Yeah i saw them...and in fact yaar, its cool that there are so many facilities for sports...anyways, the video song is quite old. There might have been changes in it.. also, i would like to ask that the thing showed for the morning i.e. running upto the hills and exercise, is it going on now too..?? And for that, how early are the people required to wake up?
13 Mar 2012, 08:15

I didn't find your name in the final list of scra 2011..
Considering the case of 'genuine', i believe that it is a reasonable corollary that esha is not your real identity....
10 Mar 2012, 21:34
I am sorry i wouldn't like to disclose my rank as it would mean a disclose of identity here. Anyways, if u get updated with anything regarding SCRAs, their lies, routine etc. then please do share it here.
10 Mar 2012, 13:51
thanks. the earlier the letter comes, the better it is !
may i know your rank in scra if you don't mind
10 Mar 2012, 10:29
Currently I am in NIT Trichy from where im pursuing my B.Tech course. as far as the final letter is concerned, i had asked the hospital authorities who told that the letter will b home in aorund mid- april...
10 Mar 2012, 09:21
i'm doing b.sc. from lucnow university right now.
where are you doing b.tech from ?
according to the people who had taken the medical we will get the letter by May, do you know anything else about this ?
09 Mar 2012, 18:51
Sorry for being so late in replying you. even i don't have an idea about whats the routine etc..
well, right now, i'm enrolled in B.Tech Mechanical Engineering program. Which program are u pursuing right now and from which institute?

i'd like to know.....
06 Mar 2012, 08:22
are you selected in scra ?
06 Mar 2012, 05:46
Mr. tushar will have answers to these questions as he appears to be a very learned man regarding SCRA.. but sadly he, like many others, has simply disappeared........
where have people gone??
05 Mar 2012, 19:47

i was thinking about what exactly the life as an scra is like you know the daily routine and stuff. do you know anything about it ?
also i wanted to ask you which course were you enrolled in for this year.

The SCRA stipend should be roughly more than 11,000/- per month during Four Year Engineering course. There is no need pay any fees or buy any books and boarding is free. But you have to pay for food.
Now-a-days the top four people of SCRA are being sent to Ireland on student exchange program in their final year.
The salary after four years will be roughly 30,000/- per month initially ( this is the highest initial salary you can get in Government jobs i.e Group A/Class I package)
21 Feb 2012, 11:14
folks aren't using that forum sir.

next exam will be in 2013 as no info is given for another scra in 2012 calender. next SCRA could be in 2014 also depending on the no. of vacancies announced by railway board.
from where did you conclude 40-45% as cutoff score? in my opinion cutoff score simply can not be predicted.
14 Feb 2012, 08:28
13 Feb 2012, 14:35
13 Feb 2012, 08:43
dude, from where did you arrive at the magic figure of 40-45% as cutoff score?
13 Feb 2012, 00:47
12 Feb 2012, 23:55
12 Feb 2012, 23:32
Thanks a lot..
12 Feb 2012, 21:37
the cutoff is around 40-45% for a candidate from general category
12 Feb 2012, 18:01

i reckon DOKKA SATISH belongs to reserved category. that is why this candidate got selected at such a score and the candidature is provisional.
10 Feb 2012, 15:43
So that it will be segregated and easy for the visitors. Also watch videos of Jamalpur , SCRA on the forums
Best of Luck :)

bhai jaan mai aapko batata hu ki 2010 ka kis liye itna high gya tha kyu ki us samay iitian bhi exam mai baithe the aur 2011 mai iitian nahi baithe the.aur aapko pta hona chahiye ki 214 log select hue the 2010 mai jisme se sirf 189 logo ko hi interview ke liye bulaya gya tha jisme se general category wale sare iitian the
aur OBC wale bhi. sirf kuch SC and ST wale hi iitian nahi the
ABHINAV SONKAR ne yhi kha tha ki uske lagabhg 418 no aayenge lekin uske itne nahi aaye uske sirf 215 hi written mai aaye the ye bhi iit kanpur mai tha. sare qualifier yahi kha rhe the unke mutabik kisi ke number nahi aaye.
aap log to FB par to hai hi to khud hi kyu nahi jaan lete un logo se..
bhai log upsc ke kisi bhi exam mai aaj tak koi bhi written part mai 60% marks nahi laya hai chahe wo civil services ho ya IES ya fir SCRA................
03 Feb 2012, 18:27
yes they really have attitude problem but they also have hell of a brain
03 Feb 2012, 18:24
how can you be so sure? i wonder....
03 Feb 2012, 18:13
Ur.frnds r in.biggest dilemma...SCRA is nt below dignity...they hv attitude problem...IITians.also fight for IAS n IES...n.SCRA is the same line....hahahahaaa...its jst their excuse bcz they cnt make.it...n bout IIT..th that th tym vil tel...about their selection...my wishes fr such creatures
03 Feb 2012, 18:09
you may disagree with me but those people are my friends and they have not givdn the paper as they thought that it was below dignity to give scra as they are a sureshot selection for iit
03 Feb 2012, 17:08
i totally agree..wid u...:)
03 Feb 2012, 16:30
bhai tum dekh lena ki agar kisi ka 360 se jyada nahi aayega
2010 ka bhi itna hi easy tha ....
03 Feb 2012, 16:24
forget it coz results will be declared 4 months later and there are many more papers to go.
03 Feb 2012, 14:36
03 Feb 2012, 14:08
i do agree with u regarding the fakeness of the ppl's prediction...
its impossible to score 500...in the given amount of time....
u give the paper to any IITian also....n give himm twho hours he cn't do....n 450 is impossible....n about dis site...th ppl who r posting things r jst fake....dnt get hyperactive and wait for the results....i bet..cut off will be not more than 300....
03 Feb 2012, 13:48
03 Feb 2012, 13:28
03 Feb 2012, 13:15
i dont think my selection is sure because thre are so many people who are getting more marks than me on this site only and there would be many people like them getting above 400 though i am dead sure about my marks
03 Feb 2012, 12:44
And do you really believe that anyone can get 450 marks! Initially I too had calculated this much but after goin' through each ques once again I identified many silly mistakes I have done in Physical Science paper due to time constraint.
03 Feb 2012, 12:43
N 450 is almost impossible...cutoff for general will be around 300..every year aftr exam ppl boast lyk hel about their marks...as they nvr tick their paper same as theor OMR sheet..so jst wait for the results n see...bcz in 2010 paper was of same standrd n ppl were boasting more dan 450..bt akhil jain the topper got 401..n al were below 350....n cutoff after written was 27%..check aryan classes site...
@aastha...if u hv ticked n u r sure for 375...then no 1 can stp ur selection...:)

i fall in gen category.
i hv checked my answer frm resonance solution. However i hv cross checked with aryan classes. both were same except 4 one clash which was in english(general ability paper).
Not only that i have checked my GK solution from Wikipedia.
Now what r my chances?

regarding ur claims for hw d prediction is high n marks r les...then let me tell u bfr this year not mch ppl were interested in making business about SCRA n no answer keys were uploaded anywhere...so may b u and ur frnd get wt u r expecting...
i agree...don't check ur GK solution on resonance...search indivisually....n resonance answers r almost wrong in physical sciences and english...maths is almost correct...so plzzz solve problems and estimate....

01 Feb 2012, 11:35
i just wanted to share my doubts with you regarding cutoff marks. how is it possible that people's predictions are screwed to such a large extent every year??
how is it possible that people seriously estimated their score to be 400+ for last year, yet their final score plummeted, to such a large extent? i find it really incomprehensible.
did you also verify your answers last year with resonance or some other institute's solution and then arrived at a figure of 375+ or was it a guesstimate done only by you?
i have a friend who referred to solutions provided by resonance and is getting 370+. he reckons (and i agree) that some answers are not up to the mark and his score may even reach 390 if resonance corrects errors in their solution.
in such case,and considering you past experience, he will definitely make it in.
i just want to know my odds, which in the current state seem very thin.
01 Feb 2012, 11:09
01 Feb 2012, 10:07
its okk buddy...if u r expecting 400+ then u r selected for sure...because u vil at least land up in 300 to 320...n wt category u applied in???
01 Feb 2012, 10:00
01 Feb 2012, 09:53
its jst ur thinking dat it will go around 450...
wait fr the results n see..wt happens...:)
last 3 years ppl expected dis only and they got nthng...haha..
01 Feb 2012, 09:42
01 Feb 2012, 09:14
Bro...i completely agree with your views...
guys n gals here are getting ovr confident unnecessarily...
i appeared and cleared 2010 written..n was expecting 375+ but i jst got 37.5% n i was in...though bcoz i was in NDA so cdnt appear for the interview...
in 2011 also...ppl were posting about their expectations around 400..sm were around 450+...bt wen result came out it ws just 52.5% in written scored by HARISH MAHADASU..a frnd of mine..n aftr interview he is 57.2%..n he is d topper....
01 Feb 2012, 02:55
01 Feb 2012, 02:41
But how do you know that guy, Pratap Singh?
01 Feb 2012, 02:41
jisko exam qualify karna hai agli baar ,abhi se hi lag jao....
agli baar bhi janurary mai hi hoga......best of luck
01 Feb 2012, 02:38
scra 2010 mai paper 1 ka lowest score 34 hi gya tha jo written qualify kiya tha pratap singh..and after wo final mai bhi select hua
01 Feb 2012, 02:34
01 Feb 2012, 02:33
01 Feb 2012, 02:26
dont be overconfident
result will be decleared
u know upsc or not?
aaj tak scra ke written part mai koi bhi 360 se adhik marks nahi laya hai........
last time bhi kai logo ne yahi bola tha par kisi ka nahi hua
agar aap logo ne paper sahi kiya hai to ye dekha hi hoga ki kai questions ke ek se adhik option the to aap log samaj hi sakte hai.
aur paper ka front paper bhi read kiya hoga..
is baar bhi sirf 180 log hi select honge aur wo bhi maximum wahi honge jo iit-jee qualify karenge jaisa ki aap logo ne scra 2010 ka result and marks dekhe hai ki 2010 ki merit kitni high gyi thi .. aur 2010 ki bhi last time jo ki highest marks 494/800 gyi thi lekin 2011 ki 460 gya hai.
01 Feb 2012, 00:28
and the cut off was for last year and actually there is no cutoff it is onyl predicted i think this year's pretty high
01 Feb 2012, 00:23
what are my chances of selection please tell
01 Feb 2012, 00:18
And by the way I heard that cutoff is about 55% of the total 800 marks. But here people are gettin' 400+ only in written test!! How are these consistent with each other??
31 Jan 2012, 22:41
31 Jan 2012, 21:14
dude, 400! amazing. a friend of mine is also getting around 400 i guess. if there are more of such scores then i reckon that my chances are very, very slim. great score! you will definitely make it.
31 Jan 2012, 20:42
31 Jan 2012, 20:20
because last year i cleared written at 34.5% only...but this tym maths paper was very easy...
31 Jan 2012, 18:59
On this issue I replied many times on the web page. At the end it all boils down to is "What one wants to do in the life?" . If one is interested in having lots of money and lavish life then definitely Railways is definitely not for them - not only Railways no government job pays well. One charm of Railways /SCRA is the security of job. Also added is the challenges of the job. An scra passed out will be Class I gazetted officer, but compared to other government jobs the public power is not there. One side of the high job profile are the IAS and IPS who enjoy power with responsibility and other end are the high end private jobs who get great pay packages and in between are the railways which has average power and average pay.
After posting they will be posted to maintenance units where they are in-charge of hundreds of crores of assests and 100s of staff. It is just like serving to the nation. The duty hours are also not bound - railway officers have to answer many things. Now you in case of any train accident, DRM is being suspended. See the multitude of responsibility Railway officer has to carry forward. There are many things to say. What a Railway job gives is a fighting spirit and development of strength and personality compounded with a decent social and peaceful life (with some hiccups in between).
31 Jan 2012, 18:00
31 Jan 2012, 17:47
what is your final score dude? please post it, if that is convenient.
i am really worried about he cutoff this year, and i want to get the general picture.
you can see the solutions which resonance has given.they are for set A. you can match your questions (of set D) with the answers.please post you score as soon as possible.
31 Jan 2012, 16:25

30 Jan 2012, 19:43
check this out
this is previous years guessed 'cutoff' marks, which is more than the score of the guy who topped this exam last year!
my guesstimate score is 290. it can be less,much less,if a disaster occurred in the exam, which given my history, is always a rational, justified and a completely plausible possiblity.
30 Jan 2012, 19:27
30 Jan 2012, 18:54
How much r u gettng in
I am getting around 90.
30 Jan 2012, 18:44
i calculated gat marks with the help of wikipedia. And calculated my mathematics and science marks by discussing my friends.
And lot of questions in maths paper were wrong or misprinted
for ex: Q.NO 94,95,96 of SET A showing cosy=165 instead of y=165 and question number 74 of set A seems absurd because injective mapping is not defined for m>n.
my marks seems correct to me.

Are there any minimum marks required to be scored in each of the three papers????
Or is there a single cutoff prepared out of 600 marks????
30 Jan 2012, 16:35
i want to know that does any site has scra 2012 answer key, i have roughly calculated that i would get around 180 to 200 marks, is there any chance ,i m thinking this is not sufficient,
30 Jan 2012, 15:41
How much marks u r getting..??
Calculate it roughly..
And after that i may conclude that how much the cut off may go around..
30 Jan 2012, 13:03
can anybody give an idea for the cutoff for scra 2012?
30 Jan 2012, 12:48
Some visitor was asking whether passed out of SCRA will get facility like Vehicle with flashing red light - No, except IAS and IPS no one is authorized to put red light.And I exactly don't know from which rank IAS and IPS get a vehicle with red light.
After entering the IRSME service, depending on the posting you may get vehicle or may not. After putting in atleast 5-6 years of service one can expect a vehicle.
30 Jan 2012, 11:31
Congratulations for getting selected.
i'm extremely sorry for any disquiet caused to the candidates whose scores are published. i would have certainly deleted the post as soon as i read your comment, but considering the fact that i am not the administrator of this site, i find my self unable to do so.
my only intention to put the scores of selected candidates on this site was to make aspirants like me aware of the optimum marks required, nothing else.
and unfortunately your scores are already 'publicly exhibited' in the following manner:-
1.the names and roll no.s of selected candidates are available on the UPSC site.
2.date of birth of candidates can be found searching it on google (the process being extremely tedious as i could not view their facebook or linkedin or google+ profiles as i am not a member of any of them)
3.the marksheet can be viewed by entering the required information(obtained through a completely legal, ethical and 'public' process) on the UPSC site.
i will again state that i am sorry for any anguish caused to any of the candidates. please feel free to contact me at
30 Jan 2012, 07:56

i would be thankful to you.

all data are based on written qualified candidates........

There is a great thing of thinking positively: If you can think, you can win.
Benefits of thinking positively
If you think that you would be able to crack the interview with ease, it will certainly give you lot of confidence.
Do not think anything other then success.
Why to think of negative things like failure? You will have lot of time to think negatively later on, so better leave the negative part and think of being a successful candidate.
It have been proved scientifically that before sleeping if you can just planned what you will do next day, then certainly you would be able to manage all the activities quiet properly.
In the same way, before sleeping think that you would clear the interview with flying colors!! We just wish you all the best.
07 Dec 2011, 02:58
Prepare your answer keeping these points in mind:
1-Do not feel nervous. Getting nervous brings your performance down.
2-If you don’t know anything, reply “no” politely/calmly. Do not say wrong things (or a blunder). If you are putting your guess, then you can say that Sir, I feel….
3-You should be in a calm and confidant mood.
4 -Interviewer is well aware of the fact that a 12th class student can be very intelligent but normally not matured enough to tackle lot of pressure. So whatever happens, whatever board member says to you, be calm. You are giving SCRA interview because you are among the 184 students from India!
5 -Sometimes interviewer intentionally asks you some questions which are certainly not a part of your course. The Interviewer just wants to see your approach and not the formulas. Interviewer wants to see, how specifically you study. You should analyse and propose your solution with your current level of knowledge.
6-There can be infinite questions so you can not prepare for each and every question. You have to be mentally strong and confident to face the interview.
7-Do not argue with the interviewer. There exist lot of difference between arguments and discussion.
07 Dec 2011, 02:53
Preparing for the Interview:
1- Be confident
2 -Be calm and don’t be too anxious about interview
3 -Think positively
4 -If possible give mock interview to your seniors, bro/sis or parents.
5 -Don’t feel shy, neither be too expressive (Too much of expression sometimes leads to errors)
7 -Pressure and last minute revision of books never works. Never be tensed.
8 -Decide your dress well in advance. Do not think too much about dress. A simple shirt/trouser/sweater for boys and a suit for gals will work. Be comfortable.
9 -Collect your necessary papers / certificates etc before time.
10- Carry a pen with, they may ask you to solve some problem / puzzle or a drawing (if your hobby is drawing).
11 -Consider each and every question asked as the opportunity to express yourself and to win.
07 Dec 2011, 02:50
Interview questions can be divided broadly into the following categories:
1. Based on school syllabus
2. Personal questions
Based on your interests and hobbies
Based on your career goals
Personal (family related)
3. General Knowledge questions
4. Question regarding Railways, current affairs etc
4. Hypothetical questions
07 Dec 2011, 02:32
As such there is no requirement for separate preparation for interview. It is a personality interview and not a performance interview. Be what you are .. don't try to bluff. You should be having good idea of maths , physics and chemistry - that is why you qualified and that is what they expect.So they will question you about that . They may ask a few things about mechanical engineer basics and there is no need to worry about that. be to the point, clear and confident. Best of Luck.

y these individual highest scorers were not selected???
and what about the one who score 145 in personality test???
it seems some common merit list is prepared out of 800...n top 42 are selected....is it like that or some other procedure??

You can appear for any exam and yes you are eligible for IAS and moreover you get engineering degree and you are eligible any exams...
nothing much - it is just a complete body check up...

What one get after completion SCRA is BE(mechanical) from BIT ranchi . It is same as what a regular student of BIT ranchi gets. There is no difference . But what SCRA student gets is additional workshop training during vacation. Yes, you will not have any summer vacation . You are on job literally and you get paid for it.
You will get degree from BIT ranchi which is same as any other student of the institute .

After completion of engineering and training - postings can be any where in India. Choice will be given based on the ranking obtained in the training.. IRIMEE has wi fi and LAN. Mess facility is available and is very excellent. The students are the sole incharge of the mess and administration don't get involved in it.
If u are technically oriented and interested in getting big salaries IIT would be better.....please read the other comments for an idea...

IF you want big salary SCRA is not for You .....
09 May 2011, 19:51
There is no difference between SCRA and IES in terms of promotions and salaries, both are one and same- But in SCRA you get free engineering and stipend and a life of freedom while you are graduating itself- The difference is same as NDA and CDS - In government sector as you know promotions are time based - the more service you have to serve the more chances are that you go to the stop - so either it is SCRA or IES - it depends on the age you entering service? for SCRA service counts after four years you join i.e after completion of engineering ....
08 May 2011, 20:14
I just want to know if I leave DCE (engineering physics, B.Tech) 1st year for the SCRA, will I be making a right decision ??
I don't have any specific interest in either mechanical engg. or engg. physics, but I am capable of doing my best in whatever I do so field doesn't matter.
But I do have a thing for high salary. But is it correct engg. phy doen't pay much??That's the biggest problem niggling me.
Please reply .

there is no requirement to prepare for interview. But it is better to know few things about mechanical engineering and railways. As you cleared exam you must be having good idea of Maths and physics. Be what you are. The interview board is not there to panic you - they are there to gauge your personality. Be prompt , honest in your answering...
26 Apr 2011, 21:42
SCRA is nothing but a shortcut to IES (engineering services). The stipend an SCRA gets during training (engineering - BE) now is some 12,000/- per month. This is stipend and not salary. SCRA salaray after completion of four year engineering course and joining the job will be 30,000 per month plus. This is initial salary. And will be adding on with time. These are rough figures now and keep going up with inflation. This is apart from the free AC travel and other facilities like decent house etc. It is a good job having enough of challenges, you will be controlling lot of assets and people. For example now I am incharge of some 600 staff and 100 diesel locomotives. It's quiet a serious job. But frankly the job doesn't suit for ambitious people who want more out of their life . If you really want great salary like lakhs per month, SCRA is definitely not the right one. And it is a known fact that Railway officers will not enjoy as power as officers in same rank of any other Government service like IAS, IPS , Revenue service, state public services. You will be not known much in public. So it is a median between a full paid private job and some powerful government jobs. But you can have satisfaction as a mechanical engineer and Railways is a secluded complete society in itself . So you can have a decent family and social life.
After completion of SCRA, You will get a BE degree you will have a bond period of some 3 years to serve in railways. After that you are free to go for any other job(now a days people are going for IIMs) or continue with railways(which many do).

18 Oct 2010, 13:33
Minimum qualification required is +2 . So you can write the exam if you are BE(Mech) also. But there is an age limit , I think 21 for general students and may be few more years for OBC, SC and ST. Check the UPSC notification http://upsc.gov.in/exams/notifications/scra2010/ntf-scra.htm#PageTop for eligibility criteria.....
All questions asked will be of +2 standard only. If you completed BE it is better to try IES (engineering services) . Because in SCRA you have to re-do engineering again....

27 Feb 2010, 20:44
SCRA is indeed a great opportunity .
Its a prestigious class 1 officer job but sir i am confused about one thing the salary
of an SCA as per brochure is about 20000 pm . But i believe it should be definitely
more .As you are an alumni of SCRA can you please tell me the actual figure
how is everything at IRIMEE?
THOUGH IT MUST BE GOOD . But can it be compared to IITs?
I will be highly obliged to you if you provide me the answers to these few questions.
