  • The examination is called combined Graduate level examination. The minimum qualification for this examination is a graduation in the relevant subject.The candidates appearing in the final year of their graduation can also apply, however, they must possess Essential qualification on or before August 1st, of that particular year.

    So if a person is in B.Tech 2nd year he is eligible to apply. Even applied also if the provisional certificate copy is not produced on or before 1st August, that year the application will be rejected. So there is no chance for a person who has not completed B.Tech within that. This is very clear from the notification that is being given SSC every year. This is for your information and already 2018 notification has come and you can go through that.

  • Staff Selection Commission - Combined Graduate Level Examination (SSCCGL) is a government-organized body for the recruitment of various technical and non-technical staff (Group B and C). These recruitments are generally for central civil posts under various government organizations, ministries, and departments. The exam is conducted in four tiers T1, T2, T3, and T4. Since 2016, Staff Selection Commission has withdrawn the interview process for the selection of non-interview jobs. The exam pattern for four tiers include:

    Tier 1 (Preliminary) - Written Examination (Multiple Choice Type)
    Tier 2 (Mains) - Written Examination ( Multiple Choice Type)
    Tier 3 (Descriptive Test) - Essay / Passage / Application / Letter Writing
    Tier 4 (DEST/CPT) - Computer Proficiency Test / Data Entry Skill Test / Document Verification

    The various posts for which Staff Selection Commission selects through CGL are:
    Accountant/ Junior Accountant
    Assistant Enforcement Officer in Directorate of Enforcement, Department of Revenue.
    Auditor Offices under C&AG, CGDA, CGA & others.
    The compiler in Registrar General of India.
    Divisional Accountant, Jr. Accountant, Auditor & UDC in various offices of Govt. of India.
    Examiner in Customs.
    Inspectors of Central Excise & Customs.
    Inspectors of Income Tax.
    Preventive Officers in Customs.
    Sub-Inspectors in Central Bureau of Narcotics & CBI.
    Tax Assistant in CBDT and CBEC

    The online application date for 2018 will commence from 21st April 2018 and the last date is 25th April. The eligibility criteria for application of SSC CGL is bachelors degree or graduate degree from any recognized university. Aspirants who have a degree from distance education from IGNOU recognized universities are also eligible. The age limit will be calculated on 1st August every year. But there is age relaxation for SC/ST (5 years), OBC (3 years), Physically Handicapped (10 years), SC/ST with Physical disability (15years) and OBC with Physical disability (13 years).

    Since you are in BTech second year, you will be quite eligible when it comes to age but when it comes to education eligibility, you can apply for the exam but you will not eligible after completing all the tiers, because you will not be able to produce a provisional certificate by 2019 (which is the completion of tier 4 exam of SSC CGL 2018 exam).

    Note: You cannot appear or clear all tiers at once. Each tier exam is conducted in various dates throughout the calendar year. It is better that you apply for SSC CGL in next academic year i.e, BTech 3rd year.

  • SSC CGL is the most sought after exam conducted by Staff Selection Commission (SSC) of Govt of India for Combined Graduate Level ( CGL) test. About 15 lakh candidates appeared last year in it.

    The minimum educational qualification is Graduation to appear in this examination.

    For 2018-19 session the application submission is to be completed during the period 21.04.18 to 25.05.18. Afterwards, examinations will be held in 4 stages starting in August 18 and ending in May/June 19.

    The age limit is 20-30 years but various exemptions are their for different categories.

    The candidate should have qualified in his graduate examination by the last date of application that is 25.05.18. The document verification will be sometimes during the 3rd stage of the exam.

    So you can not appear for the session 2018-19. Anyway it is a long examination covering almost 9-10 months so prepare well and appear when you are eligible for it.

    Knowledge is power.

  • 1. I have read the details given in the question.
    2. The eligibility condition of SSC CGL is Graduation in any discipline (except Statistical Investigator, Assistant Audit Officer and Compiler). Please remember that the candidates must possess the degree of Graduation at the time of applying.
    3. As per your query, the candidate applied for SSC CGL while studying B.Tech 2nd year. He cleared all the three tiers and got the offer of appointment when he was in the 3rd year of B.Tech.
    4. In the present case, the candidate was not eligible to apply for SSC CGL examination as at the time of applying, he was not a Graduate (although he qualified all three tiers).
    5. As per my understanding, the offer of appointment will be withdrawn at the time of verification of certificates.
    6. Otherwise, there is some mistake in the details furnished in the question.

    If necessary, kindly revert later with complete details of the case.

    Come as you are!

  • A graudate or a graduate in the final year of the study only can apply for SSC-CGL exams. Do you have another bachelor's degree? So, you cannot appear for the exams without meeting the above criteria and the results would be invalid if someone has written the exams in the second year of the graduation. Mistakes happen as no one asks about the graduate certificate at least until stage two is over.

    Many students in the final year (NOT SECOND YEAR), try to write the exams, the first two stages. The problem is when they move from stage 3 to stage 4 of the exams wherein at dcoument verification you need to have the graduation in hand.

    It takes almost a year to complete the stages, so if you enter your final year B.Tech in 2019, then you can plan for the SSC-CGL 2019-2020.

  • Being a student of second year in Engineering, you should not appear for SSC CGL Examination in the current year since the examination - pattern covered in four stages would not allow you to produce the final year degree certificate during the stage of verification of certificate.
    The test comprises Preliminary, Main, Descriptive and a Computer related test and the session test may run for a year sometimes.
    The test is conducted to fill up the various posts of Government and as such this test does have its bearing and in your case, even if you clear the papers, your candidature will be rejected due to non production of passing certificate of the final examination.
    You can write the Examination in when you are in the final year of academic session so that by the time you complete the test of SSCCGL, you will have the opportunity to produce the essential certificates required for this test.

  • 1. The eligibility condition of SSC CGL is Graduation in any discipline. The final year students can also apply, provided the mark-sheet is available on the cut-off date of the year of examination. As for example, the cut-off date of SSC CGL-2017 was 1st August, 2017. This means the candidates should have possessed the mark-sheet of the final year as on 1st August, 2017.

    2. In the present case, the candidate was in the 2nd year of B.Tech at the time of applying. Now, he is in the 3rd year. As far as I know, B.Tech degree is of four years duration. So, I reiterate my previous answer. The candidate is not eligible for SSC CGL, although he has qualified all the three tiers.

    Come as you are!

  • The eligibility condition of SSC- CGLE is Graduation in any discipline. Final year students can also apply. The author's question is not valid. Non eligible student can not apply. If he applies by false declaration he is liable for criminal intimidation and his candidature will be cancelled.

    The greatest wealth in this world is mental peace and good health.
