Hello dear aspirant.

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.
see if you are from general category then only you may choose for economically weaker section. if you already belongs to any other category like obc, st or sc etc than you can not choose ews category. if you are from general category and still facing the issues then try after some time and also checks the internet connection.

If you comply with these qualification, fill them, otherwise, you are eligible for all the posts other than these two.
Hope this helps. Thank you.
