    Hello Tarun, Greetings from Eduncle! Thanks for sharing your query with us! Yes you are eligible to apply for SSC CHSL 2017 exam, but if you wish to apply for the Data Entry Operator Posts, then you need to fulfil these Educational Qualifications (EQ), (1) 12th standard pass in Science stream with Mathematics as a subject form a recognised Board or equivalent. (2) A speed test of not less than 15000 key depressions per hour for data entry work to be ascertained through speed test on computer. For the other SSC CHSL Posts, like that of Postal/Sorting Assistants, LDC and Court Clerks, there is a Typing Test in the Tire 2 stage which is Skill Test stage. Hope these details clear your confusion. Kind Regards, Eduncle Team
