The National Recruitment Agency Common Eligibility Test (NRA CET) is a standard screening test conducted by the newly recognized NRA, used to shortlist worthy candidates for non-gazetted and non-technical Group B and Group C job positions.
NRA CET will undoubtedly be conducted in 2022, but the date and time of the test are yet a mystery as no specific announcement has been made in this regard.
However, the statement is scheduled to be released soon, with NRA CET replacing the primary government departments' non-gazetted prelims test.
Aspirants who score well on the exam will be shortlisted to appear in higher-level examinations conducted by different organizations for various positions.
The test results will remain valid for three years, and the NRA CET exam is expected to be held twice in one year.
This test will prove immensely beneficial to all government job positions aspirants by eliminating the bulk of required applications that they previously had to complete for the different kinds of tests: they would now need to prepare for just one exam and give their best in it.
NRA CET Exam Dates 2022
Although the Union Cabinet has already approved the creation of the NRA, an indication of the agency's formal commencement is yet to be made.
It is expected that the notification will be released soon, and the tentative exam dates for the notification, application, admit card, exam date, answer key, and the result will be announced shortly.
NRA CET Eligibility Criteria 2022
The NRA CET exam has specific eligibility criteria that aspirants have to comply with. These include the following:
The NRA CET will be conducted at three primary levels: Class 10th, Class 12th, and Graduation. Therefore, aspirants who have completed their Class 10, Class 12, or Graduation level education are eligible to apply.
The NRA CET exam has a proper upper age limit which varies depending upon the position for which an individual applies. Candidates who belong to reserved groups such as Other Backward Class (OBC), Scheduled Tribe (ST), Persons with Disability (PwD), Scheduled Caste (SC), and others have relaxation in their upper age limit.
NRA CET Syllabus 2022
The exact syllabus for NRA CET is yet to be announced for the year 2022. In contrast, the Common Eligibility Test may include questions from four subjects, including language (English, Hindi, etc.), general reasoning and intelligence, quantitative aptitude, and general awareness.
The language variation in the NRA CET exam is quite diverse: applicants can take it in 12 different languages across India.
