The RPF Constable Exam Pattern 2022 consists of 3 different stages that are designed to test the candidates on different parameters. You can read about all the stages of the exam process in detail below. Here are the 3 stages covered in the RPF Constable syllabus and exam pattern designed by the Indian Railways:
Computer Based Test (CBT)
Physical Efficiency Test (PET)
Physical Measurement Test (PMT)
The subject-wise RPF Constable syllabus for Computer Based Test is given above. Here, we will discuss the exam pattern for the Physical Efficiency Test, Physical Measurement Test, and Document Verification.
As per the RPF Constable recruitment policy, all the candidates who have passed the CBT will be called for the Physical Efficiency Test (PET) and Physical Measurement Test (PMT). Typically, candidates are called as per 10 times the number of vacancies for this next stage. Unlike the CBT, no marks are allotted during these tests. Instead, a candidate is considered qualified or disqualified based on how they perform in the following areas.
Physical Efficiency Test (PET):
To qualify the PET, a candidate must meet particular physical standards mentioned in the RPF Constable Syllabus and display physical efficiency in areas such as:
800 meters run
3 min 40 secs
1600 meters run
5 min 45 secs
Physical Measurement Test (PMT):
The next parameter included in the RPF Constable syllabus are the physical measurements of the candidate. Thus, a candidate must possess the required physical measurements mentioned by the ministry to qualify the round. Candidates who are unable to do so will be disqualified from the selection process.

For Marathas, Dogras, Garhwalis, Gorkhas, Kumaonese, and other categories specified by the Indian Government.
Verification of Documents: Once a candidate clears all the 3 stages mentioned in the RPF Constable syllabus and exam pattern, they will be called for the verification of documents by the regional Railway headquarters or some other office mentioned in their admit card. Candidates must submit their official credentials to the authorities to become eligible.
After the verification of documents and the medical examinations, candidates will have to answer a few questions to help the exam authorities judge their personality and intelligence.
