Tier -I — Written Examination (Objective Multiple Choice Type)

Tier -II — Written Examination (Objective Multiple Choice Type)

Tier -III — Computer Proficiency Test/ Skill Test (wherever applicable)/ Document Verification

NOTE: Interview round is not included in the selection process making the recruitment process tough for the aspiring candidates as we can surely expect the cut off to rise this time.

Question: I have  45% marks in graduation , can i fill this form ?

Answer: Central govt recruitment is based on merit system , for this they conduct written exam .

Less marks in graduation / 10th / 12th  does not create any problem .

There is no such specific criteria, you can go ahead.

Question: Is Aadhar Card mandatory to fill SSC CGL Exam?

Answer: No it is not mandatory to possess Aadhar Card to register for SSC CGL Exam.

Question: About OBC creamy Layer

Answer: To claim OBC reservation benefit, you need two certificates  i.e. the caste certificate and the creamy layer certificate. It should be in the format provided by SSC.

Candidates claiming OBC status may note that certificate on creamy layer status should have been obtained according to the dates mentioned in the exam advt. This depends on the income/status of your PARENTS (this is clearly mentioned in page 10 of the official notification), means this doesn’t depend on your own job/business OR your husband’s job/business. If your mom/dad is government employee then INCOME criteria doesn’t apply. (e.g. if dad is class3 employee, then it doesn’t matter whether he gets 6 lakhs or 7 lakhs. You’re still noncream layer. If your parents have private business, then income criteria applies. (Max. 6 Lakh rupees annual income) In short, make sure you’ve these certificates, else make trip to Tehsildar’s office/Collector Office/Jan-Seva Kendra and get the proper certificates. Otherwise, SSC will reject you at the last stage, during document verification and your entire year will be wasted for nothing

Question: I use -5D spectacles, will it create any problem in income tax inspector or any other post?

Answer: No, no problem at all. Your vision should be 6/6 using glasses.

Question: Which category of candidates is exempted from examination fees for exams?

Answer: SC/ST, physically handicapped, Ex-servicemen and women candidates are exempted from payment of fees.

Question: Is tier 1 of qualifying nature only?

Answer: There are many rumours going around of making Tier-I of qualifying nature only. But it’s not possible at all in case of SSC. So, clear the butterflies in your bellies, if there’s any. Pattern is the same.

Question: What is the Syllabus of the SSC CGL EXAM?

Answer: Please follow this link for the details.

Question: When is a reserved candidate said to be qualified on UR standards?

Answer: A reserved category candidates, if meets the cut-off that of UR candidates and has not sought age relaxation is said to be qualified on UR standards. In that case he also becomes eligible to be appointed on UR seats too.

For example in Tier-II CGLE-2011 result the cut-off for UR is 354.75; and If an OBC etc candidate has scored 354.75 or more marks and is aged below 27 on the day of reckoning age for the exam will be said that he has qualified on UR standards. And thus for him the total vacancies will be 1552 (VACANCIES FOR UR) + 883 (Vacancies for OBC) = 2435. Otherwise his vacancies would have been just 883. Also while allotting seat to him he is chosen for the category which is in his favour.

Question: Last but not the least, how many vacancies are there in CGL?

Answer: This is the question that is bothering every candidate but actually at this point even SSC doesn’t know the exact number of vacancies. No. of posts are given by the individual department to SSC at the time of interview itself and in the final result only, we will come to know the exact vacancies. Even the RTI results have seen the deviations in this regard.

Question: Is passing of colour-blindness test necessary for CGLE posts?

Answer: Passing of the colour-blindness testis necessary for EXAMINER, PREVENTIVE OFFICER, EXCISE INSPECTOR, SI CBI, SI NIA and INSPECTOR CBN

Question: Is it mandatory to appear in SSC CGL Paper ­III (Statistics) exam as my name is in the list?

Answer: No, it is not compulsory.

Question: Why my name is in the list of candidates who are eligible to appear for Paper­ III?

Answer: Well, at the time of filling up of application form, you must have selected Statistical Investigator as one of your post preference. Do you remember?

Question: Then what will happen if I am absent in Paper ­III exam?

Answer: If you don’t write paper­ III exam, then you will not be considered for Statistical Investigator post. But you will get any of the rest of the posts you applied for, if you qualify.

Question: If I appear in statistics paper and unable to qualify, then won’t I get any of the posts?

Answer: Well, if you are unable to pass in paper ­III, then you will be considered for other posts. SSC will consider your name for another post for which you are eligible.

General Queries:

Answer: Yes any aspirants can prepare for SSC, IBPS and even for any other competitive exam at the same time because the syllabus of all the exams are more or less similar. And with a proper strategy you may get success in all the exams.

Question: I am preparing for Civil Services, should I prepare for SSC Exams also ?

An aspirant of Civil Services can also prepare for SSC exams because after change in pattern and syllabus of Civil Services in 2011 now you have to prepare math, reasoning and unseen passages even for the civil services exam and all these sections are the part of SSC exams also. And GS is the part of syllabus of both SSC and Civil services. So you should certainly prepare for SSC exam even when you are preparing for Civil Services.

Question: What is the time required for preparing for SSC Exams?

Answer: If you are serious about study and ready to dedicate 5 to 6 hours daily for study, then normally you may prepare the syllabus within 4 to 5 months. There are many students who got success within 4 months of preparation.

Question: Need to join a coaching center for SSC exams or like exams?

Answer: If you are able to grab the things of your own, then in my opinion nothing is better than self-study. I don’t think visiting a coaching center is
