Request to Revise RRB JE Result
After the result of the RRB JE 1st CBT was released, several candidates were not shortlisted and complained that the criteria was unfair. One of the main points was that the recruitment notification said that the 1st CBT was only qualifying in nature. Then why did the RRB set a cut off for shortlisting.
This is first time happened for JE technical post candidates are eliminated on the basis of 100% nontech syllabus, RRB doing impartial behavior. without checking someone’s technical knowledge.. How can any one be disqualified in Cbt 1 non tech exam? This is unfair said, the Graduate engineering students welfare association. We are requesting you to revise the RRB je results as early as possible.. If you want quality engineers you should select the candidate on his technical skills..So give chance to All the candidates who are cleared the minimum cutoff.
recruitment advertisement mentions 1st stage CBT as ‘screening’ in nature and NOT ‘qualifying’ in nature.
The official notification says, “The 1st stage CBT is of screening nature and the standard of questions for the CBT will be generally in conformity with the educational standards and/or minimum technical qualifications prescribed for the posts.”
The fact that the recruitment notice mentions 1st CBT as screening in nature can cause much difference.
The term ‘qualifying in nature’ means that a candidate has to score marks equal or above than the qualifying criteria pre-set by the examination authority. On the other hand ‘screening in nature’ can mean that the marks scored by candidates in the exam will be used to ‘screen’ eligible candidates from out of those who applied and appeared for the exam.
This renders the argument about fulfilling qualifying criteria invalid but candidate’s argument that how can RRBs ‘screen’ candidates for a technical post without testing their technical knowledge still stands ground.
The official recruitment advertisement also mentions that the raw marks scored by candidates will be normalized. The merit list for candidates eligible for 2nd CBT will be prepared on the basis of the normalized marks.
The notification also said that the number of candidates shortlisted for 2nd CBT ‘shall be 15 times the community wise total vacancy of Posts notified against the RRB as per their merit in 1st Stage CBT.’
Railway Recruitment Boards are yet to respond to the candidates.
