Why is RRB JE CBT 2 City Intimation important?
Indian Railways started the practice of releasing exam date and city before publishing admit cards, ever since it moved to computer based test format. The purpose behind doing city intimation earlier (before admit card) is to allow test takers a longer period of time to make travel arrangements.
Many a times candidates get exam centres in cities that are not their hometown. In such cases they have to plan travel, book train or flight tickets, and also book hotels or see where they can stay before the exam. Candidates also utilize this time to talk to their friends and see if there are others who have got exam in the same city, so that they can travel and stay together to save money.
Even if the exam center is not in a city too far away, knowing the exam date makes the test taker prepared for any other arrangements. Since reaching the exam center is always a critical matter, it is always good to take into account even things like how to travel to the center. In states where heavy rainfall has been a growing concern over the past month, even near distance travel has to be thought out well in advance.
