First comes the Time management factor. As there is negative marking in many of the papers, one needs to have a clear understanding and make the right decisions while they attempt any question. Secondly, they need to be thorough with the complete curriculum and syllabus. Further, candidates need to be relaxed and also prepared for the additional phases of recruitment like fitness examination, document verification. Last but not least, candidates need to relax and be confident with their knowledge and skills. The very success rate depends on the candidate who has sound thinking and management abilities to act wise and calm at the most stressful hours.  India is coming up with huge opportunities for all applicants trying their luck in the Railways, and if persistent once can have a definitely bright future.
