RRB NTPC, Group D, Other Exams: Tie Breaking Rules
For those candidates who secure the same marks in the exam, the RRBs will follow the tie-breaking rule in which the merit position will be decided by age. The older candidates will be placed at higher merit.
In cases where the ages of the candidates are also the same, the alphabetical order of the name will be considered to break the tie.
For selection to Group D posts, RRBs will hold a single exam. "Where a second stage CBT is deemed necessary and held, the Railway Administration reserves the right to treat the first stage CBT as a qualifying test for the purpose of shortlisting a reasonable number of candidates for the second stage," the boards have said in the official exam notice.
For selection to Ministerial and Isolated category posts, RRBs will conduct a single computer-based test, stenography skill test, performance test/teaching skill test, translation test (as applicable), and document verification.
