Sanjay Khandelwal 11th Jan, 2020
Hello
I could not understand what you are trying to say. There is no post number in ssc chsl application form. If you are talking about address post then i dont think it will make a big mess. But for post preference there is no option given for Selection. You are just asked about DEO if you had science in 10+2 and nothing else.

for chsl you need to really have good grip on english and gk, as time is less but questions is more. if you get 80% questions correctly attempt from english and gk then it is a plus point. I suggest you to regularly practice numerical aptitude to make yourself faster in solving questions.

all the best for exams.

There is no window for correction of your application form.You could make changes before submitting the application but as you have already submitted and made the payment you cannot do anything.You need to apply once again using a new mail id and phone number and make payment.
