NRA CET Exam Notification

By Reena Pal | Updated on: Feb 01, 2022



The recently set up National Recruitment Agency is planning to conduct a Common Eligibility Test on a national level which will replace the Preliminary level of the selection process of most of the central government jobs conducted by SSC, IBPS & Railways. The NRA CET notification 2022 is expected to come out soon enough.

The purpose of the NRA CET exam is to simplify the selection process and make it easier for aspiring candidates as they will have to appear for a single exam to get into the race for various jobs. The exam will be in three levels of 10th, 12th & Graduation. The exam will be held twice a year and is expected to start from March 2022. The candidates can appear for as many times as they wish until the maximum permissible age. The NRA CET score will be valid for a period of three years.


All those candidates who have been preparing and applying to most of the central government jobs such as SSC, Banking, and Railways can now do that in a much more simple manner with the help of the NRA CET exam 2022. 

The National Recruitment Agency will conduct a national level exam to help recruit eligible candidates to various Group B & Group C posts in the Central Government departments such as SSC, RRB & Banking. Having complete information regarding the exam is extremely important, as it helps in forming a basic idea about the exam. The CET vacancy 2022 for each of the job posts will be updated accordingly by the respective departments as and when the notification is released.

The National Recruitment Agency will be conducting separate tests for each of the levels of the CET exam (10th, 12th & Graduation)for various non-technical posts.
