RRB NTPC Selection FAQ: All Doubt Answered

Q In the shortlist published by RRB my roll number is not there. What does it mean?

  1. The posts requiring AT and/or TST  is your lower priority as compared to the posts not requiring AT and TST and your roll number may have been included for provisional list of one of the Non Third Stage (NTS) posts e.g. Commercial Apprentice (CA), Traffic Apprentice (TA), Goods Guard (GG). Result of these posts will be published after AT and TST is done along with the result of posts requiring AT and TST. You are advised to wait for the publication of results after conduct of AT and TST to ascertain your final status.

You are advised to wait for the publication of results after conduct of AT and TST to ascertain your final status.

Q My normalised score is higher than the cut off marks of the shortlist for AT and/or TST but in the shortlist published by RRB my roll number is not there. What does it mean?
Ans. The posts requiring AT and/or TST  is your lower priority as compared to the posts not requiring AT and TST and your roll number may have been included for provisional list of one of the Non Third Stage (NTS) posts e.g. Commercial Apprentice (CA), Traffic Apprentice (TA), Goods Guard (GG).

Ans. Not necessarily. You are advised to wait for the publication of results after conduct of AT and TST to ascertain your final status.

Q I have been shortlisted for both AT as well as TST. What happens if I fail in both the tests?
Ans. This will depend on the priority given by you. If you have not given priority for non third stage post or your marks are lower than the cut off of the NTS posts (to be declared after conduct of AT/TST) then you will be out of the selection process. However, in case your marks are above the cut off of NTS posts (to be declared after conduct of AT/TST) your roll number will be reflected in the result published after AT/TST. You are advised to wait for the publication of results after conduct of AT and TST to ascertain your final status.

Q I have been shortlisted for AT but not for TST although post requiring TST was one of my priorities?
Ans. The short listing will depend on the post priorities given by you. Your priority for AT posts must have been higher than the posts requiring TST. Your non inclusion in the short list for TST may be due to either you are below the cut off of the shortlist for TST or you may have been included for provisional list of one of the Non Third Stage (NTS) posts which was your priority between AT posts and TST posts. You are advised to wait for the publication of results after conduct of AT and TST to ascertain your final status.

Q I have been shortlisted for TST but not for AT although post requiring AT was one of my priorities?
Ans. The short listing will depend on the post priorities given by you. Your priority for TST posts must have been higher than the post requiring AT. Your non inclusion in the short list for AT may be due to either you are below the cut off of the shortlist for AT or you may have been included for provisional list of one of the Non Third Stage (NTS) posts which was your priority between TST posts and AT posts. You are advised to wait for the publication of results after conduct of AT and TST to ascertain your final status.

Q I have been shortlisted for both AT as well as TST. What happens if I pass in both the tests?
Ans. This will depend on the priority given by you. In case of AT posts, the merit drawn after written test and AT marks are added in the ratio of 70:30 you may get included in the result for the AT posts if you are within the cut off of the AT post list and AT post  is your higher priority as compared to TST posts. In case of TST posts, you may get included in the result for the TST posts if you are within the cut off of these posts and TST posts are your higher priority as compared to AT posts. In case your priority includes NTS posts in between AT posts and TST posts and you are not getting into list of your higher priority third stage post, then you may get included in the list for NTS post if your marks are above the cut off the NTS posts in between. You are advised to wait for the publication of results after conduct of AT and TST to ascertain your final status.

Q I have been shortlisted for both AT as well as TST. What happens if I pass in one of these tests and fail in the other?
Ans. 
This will depend on the priority given by you. Your final status will be based on your merit position and priority given by you.


  1. When AT post was your higher priority as compared to TST posts and you get qualified in AT as well as within cut off of AT posts, you will get listed for that AT post. If you fail in AT or below cut off of AT posts, your allocation for the subsequent priorities will be examined. 
  2. When TST post was your higher priority as compared to AT post and you get qualified in TST as well as within cut off of TST posts, you will get listed for that TST post. If you fail in TST or below cut off of TST posts, your allocation for the subsequent priorities will be examined.

You are advised to wait for the publication of results after conduct of AT and TST to ascertain your final status. 

Q Why the result of NTS posts has not been declared along with the shortlist for AT & TST?
Ans. Many of the candidates included in the AT/TST shortlists and having these posts as their higher option are also higher in merit for NTS posts. In case these candidates fail to qualify AT/TST or falls below cut off of the AT and/or TST posts and their second stage rank is higher than the cut off of the NTS posts they will essentially get allocated to NTS posts. Therefore the allocation of NTS posts cannot be finalised before result of AT/TST is available.
