I Have done dns leading to bsc nautical science. Can I apply for ssc cgl

Manidipa Kundu Student Expert 20th Feb, 2020

hi,

see ssc cgl is a combined graduate level exam, so the minimum qualification is you need to have graduate degree in any discipline, it is a 4 tier system exam where tier 1 and tier 2 are computer based exam, where tier 3 and 4 is descriptive paper and computer proficiency test.

see if you have completed your bsc course and have certified you can surely apply. however  candidates appearing in the final year of their graduation can also apply, however they must possess the  Essential qualification on or before 01-01-2020.

In ssc cgl exam there is same as upsc exam model paper like if we qualify for mains then we write preliminary exam.

Sanjay Khandelwal 3rd Feb, 2020
Sorry you are asking a wrong question. SSC is totally different with Upsc exam. And in ssc it is MCQ level in both tier 1 and 2. In UPSC civil services preliminary exam you have MCQ and written in mains. They are totally different some part of syllabus can be same. In ssc it will be in less deep than in upsc which asks in deep. For this preliminary is first and mains is second. In ssc tier 1 and main is tier 2.
