Special Class Railway Apprentice Admit Card

The SCRA issues the Special Class Railway Apprentice Admit Card in order for candidates to appear for its annual apprentice recruitment process. The recruitment process for an apprentice is represented by the Union Public Service Commission or UPSC and consists of three stages. The admit card is essential for the first stage, the written examination. This stage is followed by a personality test and a personal interview for selected candidates. In all stages, the authority issues separate admit cards. This is one of the most critical documents. If the candidates fail to produce this at the exam centre, they will not be allowed to appear in the exam.
