    • Naveen Sachdeva // June 9, 2015 at 6:58 am // Reply

      Rahul,

      An ideal approach is to attempt sections in CGL Tier-I Exam in the following manner: (1) General Awareness (As it takes less time), (2) English (It takes less time), (3) Reasoning Section (The level of reasoning in CGL is not that tough. If you know, you can solve them in minutes), at last (4) Mathematics (because it can take time).

  28. sir it is compulsory for obc candidate to renew certificate evey three year for sittting ssc exam.

  29. Hi! I’m doing my B.COM, i’m into my last semester, the exam gets over on 20th april, 2015 and most probably the result will be announced before the second week of may, 2015. Am I eligible to appear for the SSC-CGL exam this year? And could you tell me the date of TIER 1 exam? Thank you:)

      Ankush,

      There is no sectional cut-off marks in the SSC Tier-I Exam. Tier-I Examination is used to screen the candidates for appearing in Tier-II Examination for various papers which will be specifically required for different groups of posts. Those candidates who cleared the overall cut-off marks in Tier-I Exam will only be eligible to give the Tier-II Exam. Marks of such screened candidates in Tier-I will be taken into account for final ranking of candidates for selecting them for the interview/skill test and also final selection.

    • Javed, everything is fine here. Sometimes, SSC do not able to send email or SMS to the candidates after successful registration due to network related issues. There is no issue if you did not get any email after successful registration. Just, keep the print out of application form after successful registration (Part-I and Part-II) for future reference.

  40. Sir,
