NEW DELHI, DECEMBER 3: Railway Recruitment Boards (RRBs) will declare the RRB ALP revised result 2018 by December 20, confirmed RRB Official Angaraj Mohan. Not only this, but the date of RRB ALP 2018 second stage examination will also be postponed due to the result announcement of RRB ALP 2018 first stage exam. While we spoke to Angaraj Mohan, Executive Director, RRB, he told Careers360 that RRB ALP revised result (in the form of PDF, reflecting candidates roll numbers) will be declared by December 20. With this, the exam date of RRB ALP second stage exam will also be postponed, he said. Candidates will be able to check the result at http://www.rrcb.gov.in/rrbs.html.

It must be noted that the revised RRB ALP Result 2018 will be out in the form of PDF wherein candidates can check their roll numbers and qualifying status. After the result announcement, if candidates will be able to find their roll numbers in the result PDF, then it would mean that they have qualified in the examination.

Secondly, because the result would be out by December 20, the second stage examination would not be conducted from December 24, which is the scheduled date for it.

Earlier, the scorecards of candidates, who had taken the first stage examination from August 9 to September 4, were released on November 22. RRB ALP scorecard was released online for 21 regions wherein candidates can check their scores by logging in to their account. To check their scores, candidates have to enter their registration number and password. It must be noted however, that the RRB ALP first stage scorecard is available in a centralized log in window.

There were rumors that RRB ALP revised score card for the first stage exam was not available from November 22, however, it must be noted that some changes have been identified in the new scorecard which were not available in the scorecard released on November 2. RRB ALP 2018 revised scorecard carries 3 new elements – RRB region, exam trade and post preference, which were not available in the scorecard released on November 2.

We also spoke to candidates who had taken the test and they confirmed that the new score card has been released on November 22 only. “Through a study group “Telegram”, I got to know that RRB ALP first stage revised score card has been released on November 22. As I logged into my account, I found that RRB region, exam trade and post preference have been mentioned in the score card. These details were not available when the result for the first stage was on November 2,” said Aakash, who had appeared in RRB ALP first stage exam 2018 from Ranchi.

Earlier, from August 9 to September 4, RRBs had conducted the first stage examination of RRB ALP 2018. However, a few days after the result of the first stage was declared on November 2, the authorities had to nullify the result due to faulty answer keys. Careers360 had reported on the matter in detail. Even the second stage examination was rescheduled for December 24. Thus, this would be the second time when the second stage examination would be postponed.

As per the RRB ALP 2018 first stage result data, RRBs have failed to shortlist over 3.7 lakh candidates for the second stage examination. The result data (announced on November 2) reflects that 5,88,604 candidates were shortlisted for taking the second stage examination, however, this number was not as per the official capping of around 9,65,565 candidates, who were to be filtered for the stage 2 exam. It meant that nearly 39 percent less candidates were shortlisted for the second stage.

Railway Recruitment Boards (RRBs) conduct RRB ALP in 21 regions to recruit candidates for the posts of Assistant Loco Pilots and Technicians in Indian Railways. The recruitment exam is held in four stages - first stage, second stage, Computer Based Aptitude Test (CBAT) and Document Verification.
