kya UPSC SSC CGL ka syllabus same h kya UPSC ke sman hi ijjat milti h cgl valo ko

Apoorva Student Expert 16th Nov, 2019

Hello dear student,

Both are on entirely different levels but guess what's the plus point is both are government jobs and both have job security with them . It really depends even if you are going to get a job by cracking SSC cgl then yes you are going to have a good place. While it depends at which position you are seeking or joining the job . While upsc is at a very different level and scale . It do have a different position if we look at . I hope this was helpful. While both are prestigious at their own places .

Best wishes

i will complete graduation in june 2020 can i apply for ssc cgl 2019?

Ronak Gala Student Expert 15th Nov, 2019

Yes definitely you can apply for ssc cgl 2019 even if you are completing your graduation in 2020. The only eligibility criteria required for the exam is bachelor's degree or equivalent from a recognized university and board. The exam registration has a very long process. So just do submit all the required certificates properly and safely. The exam procedure is too long. Till now, CGL 2016 is about to take place and CGL 2017 is not yet out only. So maybe once you come in 2020 after that only CGL 2019 comes out so you have a high chance to apply.

Best wishes. Thank you.

Apoorva Student Expert 12th Nov, 2019

Hello dear student,

Yes a student in their final year of graduation can apply for SSC CGL . The student is eligible to give exam in the final year of their degree that's not an issue.

my btech will complete in 2021...im in 3rd yr going to be final year in aug 2020...can i give ssc cgl exam

Apoorva Student Expert 12th Nov, 2019

Hello dear student,

I understand your concern but sorry you are not eligible for this year's exam as you are not a final year student. If you would have been in your final year of degree then you only you would have been eligible to give exam . As you have to show represent your degree after getting selected to this exam . I hope it was helpful while you can apply for the exam in 2020 as you will be in your final year and hence eligible for the exam .

Thank you best wishes

sir Maine 12 th ke baad 2year gap ke baad graduation complete Kiya hai graduation percentage 48 hai kya m ain SSC cgl ke liye eligible hu . main education gap hone par percentage more than 60 Percentage honi chaiye ESI koi BAAT hai

Priyaanka Sarkar Student Expert 12th Nov, 2019

There are few positions in SSC that do have 60% aggregate requirement and few positions do not have any aggregate requirement. You haven't mentioned the position that you want to apply for. Neverthless, not all positions require minimum aggregate of 60%. Junior Statistical officer and Statistical Investigator Grade II post require 60% minimum aggregate. The rest of the positions do not have minimum aggregate requisite. So you can try for other positions through SSC.
