The answer keys for RRB NTPC mains (2nd stage) exam that was held online will be released officially, the Railway Recruitment Board, Secunderabad said in a press note issued today. The notice further said that the questions papers and candidates’ response will also be made available along with the answer keys. The answer keys will be released on 24 January.
The mains examination under RRB NTPC recruitment 2016 was administered across the country from 17 to 19 January and the official confirmation on the release of answer keys, that too just after one day of the exam, comes as a surprise to all the candidates. RRBs had earlier conducted the 1st stage online exam in a long schedule from 28 March to 3 May and the answer keys were released in August, after more than 3 months, results were outed after nearly 7 months. So, availing the answer keys and objection tracker facility within such a short span of time seems a good move on board’s part.
RRB Secunderabad also mentioned in the press note that the question papers, answer keys and candidates’ response for 2nd stage exam will be available on the RRBs website, hence while rest of the RRBs are yet to issue the statement, the candidates can safely assume that the answer keys will be uploaded by all the RRBs. The same facility may be provided at the common portal used while issuing the admit cards for the main exam. The candidates will be able to submit the objections against the questions and key from 24 January to 30 January.
