To be eligible for the exam, you must be an Indian citizen and a graduate in any discipline. Graduation final year students whose results will be declared before students are admitted for the academic year 2016-17 can also apply.
You can register for the exam only by online mode. You need to have a scanned photo on a white background (140 x 160; less than 60Kb), scanned clear signature on a white background (60 x 90; less than 30Kb), a valid e-mail id, mobile number, valid credit/debit card. You will also need a printer if you opt for cash payment of fees at designated SBI branches.

After declaring that you have understood it properly, fill the form with details like your name, parent’s name, date of birth, category, gender, religion, email etc. Also, choose the name of three cities where you would prefer to take the test.
Once you have paid the fees and received the confirmation SMS/mail, fill up the remaining part of the form. Remember, once the form is finally submitted, you are not allowed to make any changes.
(Note: In case you opt for fees payment through SBI branches, you will see a challan on your screen. Take three prints out of this challan, fill in the required details, and visit the bank with cash.
