Expected NRA CET Exam Pattern 2022: Total Marks and Time Limit 

Marks and the time limit of the exam is yet to be announced officially by the government. We know there are exams under Bank, SSC and railway where either quant or English is excluded from the preliminary exam. But if the Government is going to combine the screening test for all the categories, we can expect these subjects in the NRA CET Exam 2022. Further details will be clarified only after the announcement of the exam pattern from the government.

Expected NRA CET Exam Pattern 2022: Negative Marking

We can expect negative marking of 1/3rd marks in NRA CET 2022 Exam for each wrong answer by the candidates.

NRA CET 2021: Sectional Cut off and Sectional Timing

Well, there is no official update on the sectional timing in the NRA CET exam as of now. We will have to confirm this from the official NRA CET notification as when it gets released. As competition would be fierce in NRA CET, this is clear to have cut-throat competition as aspirants from different categories will be taking the common test. To avoid the same, we can expect a sectional cut off and timing in the screening test. Score slab will be decided by the authority for example, Students obtaining 60 or above marks out of 100 would be eligible for the Bank PO exam, SSC categories exams, etc. Now the scores of the candidates will be forwarded to the respective boards to conduct the mains exam. Candidates will be informed via, message, mail or any other mode of communication to convey about the mains level for the qualifying category. 

Stay Tuned, We will keep you updated with the latest updates on NRA CET Exam Pattern 2022.

All The Best !!!
