Delay in RRB NTPC Exam Process! What Should Students Do??

By Sachin Awasthi|Updated : April 6th, 2020

Delay in RRB NTPC Exam Process! What Should Students Do? Railway Recruitment Board(RRB) had released the notification in March 2019 to recruit 35208 candidates for various posts. RRB will fill these vacancies on the basis of CBT Stage 1, CBT Stage 2, skill test, and document verification round. RRB NTPC CBT 1 is a 90-minutes examination, in which candidates have to solve 100 multiple choice questions, on general awareness, mathematics, and general intelligence & reasoning. From maths and reasoning, 30 questions each will be asked but in general awareness section, candidates will have to solve 40 questions. For choosing an incorrect answer, a negative marking of 1/3 marks will be done. 

Delay in RRB NTPC Exam Process! What Should Students Do?

RRB released a notice regarding the RRB NTPC Stage I exam and notified us that the exam was to be held between June and September 2019. However, later it was postponed. As it has been observed that RRB does not disclose the dates of important events in advance, which makes it difficult to predict about the exam dates. But as the Railway Recruitment Board has done with the RRB JE and Paramedical Exams, we can assume that it will release the exam dates for RRB NTPC and RRB Group D soon. The delay in RRB NTPC Exam Process is demotivating students and causing trouble in preparation. In this article, we will be discussing how to keep your head high and do not demotivate yourself due to the delay in the exam process.

Here are some of the points which you should follow as delay in RRB NTPC Exam Process:

During the preparation, there come many phases of self-doubt and dejection. Some students successfully get through it and some don't. In this article, we will be talking about those moments of self-doubt and how to stay motivated during those moments and preparational phase due to delay in the announcement of exam dates.

  • Take it as an opportunity- The late Muhammad Ali said " I hated every minute of training, but I said, " Don't quit, suffer now and live the rest of your life as a champion". Hence don't let yourself down if the dates are not coming out. Try to look at the brighter side. The more delayed the exam is, the more opportunity you get to prepare better.
  • Always remind yourself, why you started- Students generally start their preparation phase with full enthusiasm but tend to lose it after some time. You need to keep reminding yourself about that initial phase and the energy you had during that time. 
  • Think about the end result- Just remember, all of the hard work you are going to put will pay off in the end. So whenever you feel dejected or find yourself in dilemma, think of the end goal.
  • Befriend positive and high spirited people- The company around you matters a lot. If you are performing average, but you have motivated people around, you will stay motivated and keep going forward.
  • Make small goals and upon completing them, reward yourself- Setting small goals during the preparation phase is very crucial, it gives a motive and direction which in turn increases the enthusiasm. Also, reward yourself upon completing the task.
  • Keep track of your progress, positive progress pushes you to work harder the next day- Keep track of your progress on a regular basis. It will help you in analyzing the areas you need to work on and also about the progress you are making.

If you keep getting worried about the delay in announcing the date and do not put your energy in preparation to fulfill your dream, you are gonna regret a lot, and there is nothing you can do once the time is gone. Hence, stay at present, don't distract yourself and devote yourself in preparation only.

Do not delay and put feet on Peddle to Achieve your Goals!!
