To stay updated on current affairs, reading through the newspapers regularly and watching the news must be enough. If you still think you need more, you should read through the latest almanac. It will give you a quick update of what happened in the past year.
For reasoning or general intelligence, practice logic/reasoning based questions. The ability to reason is not based off your memory so you don’t have to remember stuff like south other subjects so you just have to understand how things work. Once you do, you’ll never forget.
A huge deciding factor out of all other factors is the Physical Test. The requirements for passing it are gender segregated –
The physical test requires the male candidates to carry a weight of 35 kg and run 100 meters of distance in a span of 2 mins.
The male candidates have to run 1000 meter or 1 kilometer in 4 mins 15 seconds in a one go. ( This enables the instructor to test the candidate’s stamina and resilience )

It is crucial to embark on the physical fitness of the aspirants and make sure that they can be trusted with the physically challenging parts of the job.

Railway Final NTPC Result Status
The Railway NTPC results are being anticipated wildly across the nation ads the candidates hold on to their hearts in speculation of what it could be. The results were to be announced 3 months after the exams ( held in April or May ) but the results have yet to be declared on the online as well as offline platforms of RRB. It is being said that the results this year will be cutthroat due to the number of vacancies being lower than usual this year.
The reason for this has been said to be the recessive nature of elimination of jobs in the Railway department in the past year or so. However, it has not been said whether or not the vacancies will increase in the time to come.

The Mains part of the NTPC which is a multiple choice question test – is held in two stages – two different question papers.

RRB NTPC Mains Result Expected Date
The railways’ department posts available for taking are ASM, Goods Guard, CA, TA, JAA, and Sr. Clerk. The results for RRB NTPC Mains will show the score for the first two stages of the recruitment process, both of which are computer-based tests. The competition for these posts amongst the aspirants is very close and tight-knit which will, therefore, require the close calls and intricate inspection for the candidates by the selection committee.
Due to the leniency of the question paper, the final triumph over the competition for any post is decided by the top scoring candidate even if it is by a 0.01 point difference. This is attributed to the fact that lakhs of people appear for this examination. Each year the number of aspirants rise and so do the number of vacancies.
RRB NTPC Expected Cut Off Marks
The number of people appearing for this exam is over 3,00,00,000. Comparing this to the number of vacancies, the number of aspirants is five times the number of candidates. This clearly means that at least five candidates will grapple for each seat, making the competition that much more intense. The question paper for Mains has a sum total of 120 marks. Each question is one mark. The negative marking is 1/3 (0.33) for incorrect responses so taking a guess and depending on luck would be a risky thing.
The question paper is very easy except the reasoning section of the paper. The twisted logic based questions are known for throwing people off their game and hence need to be approached with caution. These can be mastered simply by practicing the logic deflated questions and training your mind to work through these problems in a jiffy.
