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.
