The Agricultural Scientists Recruitment Board (ASRB) is all set to conduct the recruitment examination for Administrative Officer (AO) and Finance & Accounts Officer (F&AO) examination this year. The tier 1 examination is going to be held in the CBT mode on May 10, 2022 (Tuesday). Due to a large number of applicants, the Board has decided to conduct the exam in two slots with the increased number of examination centres. The admit cards are likely to be released after April 11, 2022 at asrb.org.in.
Candidates can now fill up fresh preferences of examination centres through the link provided on the official website – asrb.org.in. The last date for providing preferences is April 11, 2022 (up to 5 PM). It must be noted that the preference list updated earlier stands invalid and as such, candidates have to provide new preferences.

In case any candidate does not submit preferences within the stipulated deadline, then the Board may assign any centre at its discretion. Once the preference submission period gets over, the Board will be releasing the admit cards and the candidates can download the same using the registration number and date of birth.
A total of 65 vacancies are going to be filled via the ASRB AO FAO recruitment examination. Out of the total number of vacancies, 44 vacancies are reserved for AO while 21 vacancies are kept for FAO. Moreover, the tier 1 examination pattern for both posts is the same.
