NRA CET Exam Pattern 2022: The NRA CET 2021-2022 is all set to replace Preliminary Exams (Tier 1) for various Banking, SSC & Railway Group B & C (Non-gazetted) Government jobs. The exam pattern, syllabus, eligibility and other important details are yet to be released by the National Recruitment Agency. It is a big relief for students who prepare every year for various Government exams at the same time. This single entrance test will be taken in three categories; 10th Pass, 12th Pass and Graduate Level CET exams. 

The CET score will remain valid until 3 years from the date of participation. However, there is no bar for a candidate to appear every year for the NRA CET exam. Please note that the exam will take place twice every year, thus you have a great opportunity to improve your CET score while appearing twice in the NRA CET exam. To prepare effectively for the CET exams it is important to first understand the exam level and the NRA CET exam pattern.

The exam pattern such as maximum marks, time duration, subjects and marking scheme for the CET 2021-2022 is yet to be determined by the NRA for the combined exams for Banking, SSC & Railways exams. But it is expected that there will be a total of 4 main subjects based on which the aptitude of the candidate will be judged.
