The NRA CET exam will be conducted for various non-gazetted Group B and Group C posts in the Central Government, State/UT Government, and the Public Sector Banks. This will replace various exams like SSC, Banking, and RRB for different posts with one single exam. The scores from this exam will be valid for three years and there will be no limitations regarding the number of attempts. The best score among these will be considered valid. The candidates who will clear the NRA CET will be directly assessed to the other specialized tiers (i.e. tier 2, tier 3 exams) by the respective organization i.e. SSC, IBPS, etc. If you are preparing for competitive exams and are looking for expert guidance, you can check out our monthly FREE Current Affairs Ebook- Download Now.
