    Hello Friend,

    well, You can take RRB exam with your current qualification but your's Bachelor's degree were not taken into consideration as it had not yet finished and still one more semester to go so, I suggest after completion of course you can take railway exams. As, if you're presented for exam you can able to get only GROUP-C & D posts through RRB.

    Being, an Engineering aspirant you can apply for Officers Post at GROUP-A level which represents as Gazetted Officers through an Engineering Services Examination conducted by UPSC every year.

    Eligibility for Engineering Service Examination:

    1) The Person must complete his/her Bachelor's Engineering degree from any recognized university or Board.

    2) Age Limit: 21-30 years

    3) Must be Citizen of India.

    Exam Pattern and Selection:

    The Exam pattern consists of two parts where part-I has two sections and section I has:

    Paper I: Consists of Objective type questions from General Studies and General English. which carries 200 marks and Duration is 2 hours.

    Paper II & III : objective questions from yours academic department in two papers which carries 400 marks. Duration of Exam for each paper will be last for 2 hours.

    Paper IV & V: Consists of Conventional questions divide into two papers and question from their academic branch at B.tech which carries 400 marks and Duration of Exam is 3 hours for each paper.

    Section II: After qualifying the above all papers the person will be Granted for Personality test which consists of 200 marks

    After, qualifying all both sections the person will be appointed as Indian Railway Service Engineer at Railway Zones.

    Hope You Understand, Thank you...............,

    No, you cannot apply in between your engineering graduation. for applying in railways you have to at least complete your your b.tech degree. But yes, you can apply if you have done any diploma course or ITI course. Also you can apply for the Non-Technical jobs but you will become an engineer in next 1 year and so it is not appropriate for you to apply for the non- technical job exam.

    So, I would advise you to first concentrate on your studies and if you can prepare for the exam simultaneously so that extra time of preparation is not wasted, it will act as a bonus for you. The various books that would help you in your preparation for the RRB exam are as follows-
    • D.M.R.C.Practice Papers, Author-CH Editorial Board
    • RRB—Non-Technical (Commercial/T.A./Goods Guards etc.) Exam Guide (Centralized), Author-RPS Editorial Board
    • RRB Centralised Exam (Non-Technical) (English/Hindi), Author- CBH Editorial Board

    These books will cover almost all the syllabus that comes in the exam. The subjects on which a candidate is tested in this exam are-
    Reasoning Ability
    ~Technical Ability
    ~General Knowledge
    ~General Awareness
    The paper consist 100-120 questions and you will be given 1:30 hrs time to complete it.

    So, my advise would be to concentrate on your b.tech first and then apply for the exam, because then your chances of getting selected will increase.
