About SCRA Exam

Special Class Railway Apprentices' (SCRA) refers to a handful of candidates that are selected by the Union Public Service Commission India, after a rigorous selection process, to the undergraduate program in Mechanical Engineering at the Indian Railways Institute of Mechanical and Electrical Engineering. This programme was started in 1927 and is one of the oldest in India.
The exam is in two parts.
Part I consists of a written examination carrying a maximum of 600 marks in basic academic subjects, such as English, science and mathematics. A personality test is given to those who qualified on the written exam.
The training is conducted at the IRIMEE and the students stay at the Jamalpur Gymkhana. The selected candidates undergo a four-year rigorous training programme in Mechanical Engineering, for which IRIMEE has signed a Memorandum of Understanding with BIT, Mesra, Ranchi. The semester system of BIT, Mesra is followed, with workshop training sessions during the holidays at BIT, Mesra.
After the completion of their training, they are absorbed into the highest level leadership program in the Railway organization (also called Class 1 officers). This cadre of officers are attached to the IRSME.
A very selective group at best, the numbers have been further reduced due to the shrinkage in the Mechanical Department in the Indian Railways. The alumni of the program are called SAMs [An acronym for Special Apprentice (Mechanical)]. Currently, there are about 1450 SAMs.
