 Reforms needed for Appendix 3 (IREM) Examination
Herein suggested the following few measures in connection with the Appendix 3 (IREM) examination conducted by the Railway Board. 

v It's time to initiate the reforms by revisit the structure, syllabus, pattern of the Appendix 3 (IREM) examination to suit the changing trends.

v The existing examination pattern, i.e., consists of six papers (descriptive nature) and syllabus areoutdated one.  It should be replaced by the two parts like “Prelims” and “Mains” in Civil Services exams, JEE, or many other competitive exams.

v The Preliminary exam should consists of multiple choice questions.  It is easy to conduct as well as test the basic knowledge of candidates, before allowing them to appear in Mains examination. Tests on English skills, Reasoning skills, computer skills should be included apart from General Rules & Procedures (covering all subjects) for selection of talented supervisors in Accounts Dept.
v The preliminary examination should be conducted online by taking advantage of Information Technology.  Thereby lot of time, expenditure will be saved with good transparency.
v  Removal of "With Books" Examination, because it has not served its purpose.  Instead, it creates confusion in the minds of candidates with the long list of carrying the codes and manuals.

Existing Papers
Proposed Papers
1. General Rules & Procedures – GRP
1. GRP –proposed to be held in multiple choice format instead of descriptive in Prelims stage
2. Advanced Book Keeping
2. Continued
3. Optional one (with Books)
3. To be deleted
4. Optional One (without Books)
4. Continued
5. Optional Two (with Books)
5. To be deleted
6. Optional Two (Without Books)
6. Continued

OVERALL

Existing
Proposed
Six Descriptive papers
One multiple choice Paper and Three Descriptive papers

v Lot of advantages to the Administration, if adopted the pattern as two stages instead of single stage (6 Descriptive papers)

v Example: If 2000 candidates are appearing Appendix -3 exam, the savings to the Administration is as follows.

In One stage (existing)
In Two stages (proposed)
Savings
12,000 Descriptive Answer sheet
3,000 Descriptive Answer sheets
9,000 Descriptive Answer Sheets
(Evaluation of 12,000 Descriptive answer papers i.e., 2000 x 6
(Evaluation of 3,000 Descriptive answer papers i.e., 1000 x 3 (descriptive) –With the assumption of filtration of 50 % candidates only in prelims exam (multiple choice questions)
Almost 3/4th savings - evaluation of 9,000  Descriptive answer papers

v Like other recruiting agencies i.e., UPSC, SSC, Time Table of Appendix-3 examinationto be announced in the beginning of year.  It enables the candidates to plan their preparedness for attempting the examination.

v  It should include a) Examination notification date, Last date for receipt of applications, Examination date, Date of announcement of results.

v Syllabus to be redesigned and made it simple and define clearly to suit the present trends, as the existing one is outmodedSubjects like Accrual accounting/Commercial accounting, costing, Information technology should be added to the syllabus.
