Hi Nidhi,

For the SSC CGL form, your passing year should be the year when you completed all requirements for your graduation, including clearing any backlogs. Since you cleared your backlog in 2023 and your final marksheet date is June 24, 2024, you should mention 2024 as your passing year .

This is because your degree is considered complete only when all subjects, including backlogs, are cleared and you have been awarded the final marksheet.

Hope it helps!

  2. Enter the Seat Number : When the form asks for your roll number or roll code, enter this "Seat Number" exactly as it appears on your certificate.
  3. Confirm the Format : Ensure that the format you enter matches any specifications provided on the SSC CGL form (e.g., number of digits, any special characters).

If you encounter any specific formatting issues or the form does not accept your entry, consider these additional steps:

  1. Check Instructions : Refer to the detailed instructions provided in the form or on the SSC official website for any specific guidelines related to Maharashtra Board students.
  2. Contact Support : If you are still unsure or face issues, contact the SSC helpdesk or customer support for clarification. They can provide guidance on what to enter in this field.
