What job do we get when we clear only tier 1 both tier 1 &2 tier 1 2 3 tier 1 2 3 4 ssc cgl

Pankhuri Kumari 27th Dec, 2019
Hii Vijay!
The main aim is to clear the overall cutoff and make a place in the merit list for SSC CGL. You can't expect any job before clearing tier 1 + tier 2 + tier 3  atleast. This is because clearing only tier 1 will not make you eligible for merit list, then, there's no use of it. Yes, if you get good marks in each tier, it will make you eligible for the next tier and eventually add on to your merit list. Thus, only after clearing all the 4 tiers you can expect a good job. Hope this helps.
Good luck!
