Sub: Aptitude Test (earlier Psychological Test) in departmental selection —Calling the candidates on or one day prior to the test.
As the Railways are aware, instructions contained in this Ministry’s letter No. E(NG)I-2002/PM1/31Vo1.II dated 20.03.2007 provides that for Aptitude Test in departmental selections/promotion to the posts of Station Master, ALPs and Motormen, candidates be called a day prior to holding of the Aptitude Test, for the hands on practice session, so that they get familiar with the nature of the Test batteries with the aim of improving the performance of the candidates in the Aptitude Test.
A suggestion has been received from Research Designs & Standard Organisation (RDSO) that instead of calling one day before to give hands-on practice session, same can be done in forenoon session and actual test may be conducted in afternoon session on same day. The matter has accordingly been considered in consultation with the concerned Directorates and it has been decided that employees should be called for appearing in the Aptitude Test, either a day prior to the actual date of holding of the test, or on the same day, as may be needed in future.
Other terms and conditions as contained in letter No. E(NG)I-20022002/PM1/31 Vol.II dated 29.03.2005 remains unchanged.
Please acknowledge receipt.
