which grade should I select in ssc cgl if Im pursuing final year student

Aman Raj Student Expert 24th Nov, 2019

Hello Naveena

There are no Grade A jobs under SSC recruitment. All the Grade A officers for central govt. are recruited through UPSC. SSC recruits Grade B and Grade C officers. Though there is a Gazetted post (under SSC) like AAO, but it is also Grade B. For Grade A you must prepare for UPSC exams like civil services, defence exams (CDS, OTA, assistant commandant etc). I hope it helped you.

Dear Aspirant,

These are additional posts and required additional qualification on your part. For junior statistical officer your age must be between 30-32 and for statistical investigator grade II, you have to have statistics as a subject in your graduation.
