  1. Anuj

    R/P sir,
    May i know, Students/ candidates in their final year of graduation are eligible for ssc cgl or not?
    Thanks..
    Have a good day!

    • Eduncle Team

      Hello Anuj,

      Greetings from Eduncle!,

      You cannot apply for the SSC CGL Exam if you have not cleared your Graduation. For all the posts offered through SSC CGL exam, it is strictly mandatory to clear your Graduation Degree. For few of the posts, you need to have completed your Graduation Degree with particular subjects like Statistics and have Computer Proficiency.

      Hope this clears your doubts!

      Kind Regards,

    My D.O.B is 06th July 1987 and I have completed 28 years of Age. As per notification from SSC If the age will be computed from 01st Aug, then I would be running with my 30th Age. My D.O.B is 06th July 1987 and I am falling under OBC category, Can I able to attend the SSC CGL 2017 by claiming age relaxation. Will it be counted as 30 or 31? please help me on clarifying the above

    • Eduncle Team

      Hello Mani,

      Greetings from Eduncle!

      Thanks for sharing your query with us!

      Yes, you can apply for SSC CGLE 2017, after taking relaxations allowed for OBC Category i.e. of 3 years. As you will be completing 30 years on 6th July 2017 and SSC exam conducting authorities will be taking into consideration the ‘Candidates’ Age’ as calculated on 1.8.2017, then it will be counted as 30 and not 31.

      All the Best and apply confidently for SSC CGLE Exams 2017!

      Kindly revert if you still need any help while understanding the SSC CGL Exam pattern and Eligibility Conditions.

    What I mean to ask is “is it true that acceptance of form by ssc cgl makes a candidate eligible to sit for the exams but in verification process he/she will be declared ineligible for the post if the age is found more than the maximum age prescribed in the notification.” So one should not hold any expectation of getting selected even if he/ she clears all the tiers. ?

    Sir, i am an obc candidate but i didn’t use my obc status. I got selected and joined as general candidate only. Now can i apply for ssc cgl 2017 as obc candidate through proper channel for technical resignation?

    • Eduncle Team

      Hello Avneet,

      Greetings from Eduncle!

      Thanks for sharing your query with us!

      Firstly provide details about your current job post and work profile. Did you got the recruitment through SSC CGL Recruitment Process? Secondly if you are in Govt. Jobs then it is advisable to stay on the job you are currently at rather than switching and enrolling for SSC CGL 2017. Clearing SSC CGL is not a cakewalk. It requires rigorous and planned preparations.

      The relaxation you would get would be in age and not in terms of salary and other job related benefits.

      Kindly provide your current job details and then only we would be able to guide you accordingly.

      Hello,
       
      Greetings from Eduncle!
       
      Yes, You are eligible for most of the assistant posts. The only post you can’t apply for is Assistant Audit Officer. Apart from this, Junior statistical officer is the post that requires Mathematics at 10+2 level.
       
      Hope the above information will be helpful to you. For more queries, please stay tuned!
       
      Thanks for asking!
       
      Kind Regards,

      No, you can not apply for SSC CGL exam, as you have crossed the upper age limit.
