Railway Recruitment Board (RRB) will publish RRB ALP Result 2018 in November for first stage exam. Then in the same month, it will conduct second stage computer based test. There will be at least 10 days gap between declaration of CBT 1 result date and CBT 2 exam date. Result will be published in the form of merit list on official websites of RRBs. Prior to publication of result, the board shall issue final answer key.
A candidate recently posted a screenshot of email on Facebook, which he received from RRB Malda in response to his question on result date of CBT 1 and exam date of CBT 2.
Response from RRB reads
‘Before publication of result, one link will be provided on official websites of RRB for all candidates to see their question paper and final answer keys.
This link will be provided ASAP.
Then the merit list will be published. After a gap of at least 10 days second CBT exam will be conducted.
All above activities are scheduled to be complete by November 2018.’
None of the RRBs have published any notice on their official websites yet regarding either final answer key or result or second stage exam date. Candidates who took the test have been sending emails to respective board Chairmen to seek information on these aspects. Various reports, sometimes conflicting, are reported on social media almost every hour about responses they are receiving. Some response-screenshots may be doctored, but for the larger part, candidates are trying to help out each other by posting the messages they are getting from RRBs so that other candidates can wait peacefully.
