sir/madam i have a permanent tattoo in my chest.will it be any cause for ssc cgl..before i start my preparations i want to be crystal clear regarding tattoo issues.

Priyaanka Sarkar Student Expert 4th Apr, 2020
For the year 2020, there are as many as 8582 vacancies for as many as 34 posts. Among these there might be civilian positions and non Civilian positions like that of Defense. For Civilian positions, tattoos are not a hindrance and you can apply for them. But for positions in the defense department, a tattoo is a strict No and you will not be eligible for such positions if you have a permanent tattoo. You can apply for as many as 30 vacancies in your application and so if you have a permanent tattoo, you shpuld choose civilian vacancies and posts.

I attempted 48 questions in exam? I belongs to SC Caste. is there any chance to qualify for tier2?

Shudhanshu Gupta Student Expert 11th Mar, 2020
Hello.
Your marks cannot be predicted on the basis of the number of questions to attempt, firstly I will suggest you to wait for the release of official answer key  then you can probably crosscheck the number of correct  answers and can predict your expected score then you can compare it with the past year analysis of cut off which may give you hope for chances.
Best of luck.
