SEBI Grade A Selection Procedure, Eligibility Criteria, Syllabus & Job Profile
SEBI is one of the most prestigious institutions in India.
SEBI is a brand in itself and there is no need to explain how prestigious this post if SEBI Grade A officer is. Being a SEBI Officer is like wearing a medal 24*7.
With that being said, it’s not a cakewalk to become a SEBI Officer. It’s difficult, exhausting and tiring.
Don’t get me wrong I’m not trying to put your hopes down, but if my words bring your morale down, you have no idea what’s going to hit you when you start preparing.
SEBI has updated a lot of aspects in its Criteria this time, I’ll be discussing all the updates in this blog.
In this blog, you’ll find information on all these topics:
- SEBI Grade A Selection Procedure
- SEBI Grade A Eligibility Criteria
- SEBI Grade A Syllabus

If you’ve been reading my other blogs as well, you’d know my blogs are a mixture of bad Puns and unexpected TED talks.
So let’s get into it, shall we?
SEBI Grade A Selection Procedure
As I said earlier, as of 2020 a lot of criteria are changed for the SEBI Grade A Exam, so I’d recommend you to stop doing anything else and utterly pay attention to what I’m about to say next (don’t I sound like an abductor calling for ransom money?).
SEBI Grade A Selection procedure is based on the 3 stage process:
- Phase 1- On-line screening examination consisting of two papers of 100 marks each
- Phase 2- On-line examination consisting of two papers of 100 marks each
- Phase 3– Interview
SEBI Grade A Selection Process- Phase 1
Now, earlier for Phase 1 only one online examination was conducted over the duration of two hours consisting of 200 multiple-choice questions.
According to the new set of guidelines, as of 2020, instead of one, 2 papers are held in phase 1 of the selection process of SEBI Grade A Exam.
Each exam holds 100 marks each.
This is the division of marks and subjects for the two exams under Phase 1:
|Paper||Streams / Subjects||Maximum Marks||Duration||Cut Off|
|Paper 1||All Streams: Multiple choice questions on the subjects viz. General Awareness, English Language, Quantitative Aptitude and Test of Reasoning.||100||60 minutes||30%|
