Yes, you are eligible to appear in SCRA 2015 (Special Class Railway Apprentice's Examination 2015). The candidates must have attained the minimum age of 17 years and must not exceed 21 years as on 01st August of 2015. The detailed age criteria, required and more details are provided below.

>> Issue of SCRA 2015 Notification - February, 2015

>> Conduct of SCRA 2015 Examination - July, 2015

Age Criteria: (As on 01/08/2015)

Lower age: 17 years
Upper age: 21 years

As far as your Date Of Birth (04/01/1997) is concerned, you have already attained the age of 17 years by (01/08/2014) and presently 18th year is running. Since your present age (18th year running) is in the age limit of 17 to 21 years, I can say that you are absolutely eligible to appear in SCRA 2015 Examination.

A candidate must have attained the age of 17 years but should not have attained the age of 21 years as on 1st of January 2015. i.e he/she should have been born not before 2nd January, 1994 and not later than 1st January, 1998.

(The upper age limit is relaxable in certain categories.)
