RRB ALP Result 2018 may have been accidentally released by Railway Recruitment Board via a message which may or may not have been intended only for qualified candidates. Also, a notice on RRB Bilaspur official website has similar content regarding 1st stage result of RRB ALP 2018.
The message indicates that candidate, who has received the message, has qualified 1st stage CBT and board gave a final chance to him/her until 23 Oct 2018 to fill preferences. The message explicitly states, ‘You have secured the qualifying mark in the 1st stage CBT.’. If this is not a typo, then it clearly means that those who have received this message have qualified RRB ALP CBT 1!

Railway Recruitment Boards‘
Has RRB ALP Result 2018 been published?!
Logic dictates that this is highly unlikely for Railway Recruitment Board to publish RRB ALP Result 2018 like this. After all, 47 lakh candidates are glued to their computers and mobiles day and night to check result; so the board must be releasing the result with some actual notice. Also, it was more likely for either a PDF file containing roll numbers of shortlisted candidates to come, or result to be announced via login. But at the same time, it is our duty to have an open mind and consider all possibilities.
It is probable that many candidates who have qualified by securing RRB ALP Cut Off 2018 score had not submitted their post preferences. When result comes out, and they then get to know this, they will be deeply pained. So RRB, may have, out of genuine concern, informed them so that they can avert the calamity.
Maybe pretty soon RRB will also publish proper merit list and notices.
If the message and notice are not an indication of RRB ALP Result 2018, then what can they be? There are several alternatives.
Such as, the statement ‘You have secured the qualifying mark in the 1st stage CBT’ may have been a typo. It may have been something like ‘you may have secured the qualifying mark …’.
Otherwise this may be a format for a future message which qualified candidates will get if they did have not submitted their preferences. The likelihoods are endless.
Can this be a hoax / fake news?
We had come across the image on facebook a few days ago. But everyone knows that all that is there on social media may not be true. So it was partially dismissed.
However today, one candidate pointed out that there have been some updates in RRB Bilaspur website, which, when we investigated, came across the notification in question. So this is definitely not a hoax or fake news, because the official website has the notification. But it is still not clear whether result is actually out or not.
Help us solve this confusion!
Let us know in comments below whether you received this message or not. Those who did, please also tell whether you had already filled post preferences or not. Also, all of you can comment your views on this situation. However we urge you not to panic at all.

So even if the message is genuine, then it means that really you will all get your results very soon and your tiresome wait is going to end. So please do not panic, and best of luck to you all for your results!
