if i am doing ssc cgl job or bank job will i get leave to study msc for 2 years? will i continue to get my salary?
The Govt does provide study leave for higher studies and specialized courses during jobs. So, you can apply for an extension before joining the job, this would be suitable as once you join the job it would be tough for you to get a leavefor at least some years. Also, every department has study leave facility, but the period of extension is normally is of 3 months only. So, the leave may not be enough for you to complete your higher studies.
Some jobs of SSC do not have significant pressure on you, so you can also consider pursuing a MSc degree through correspondence(from IGNOU or other online degrees). This may be helpful because you may manage to study at office also. Otherwise, you face much difficulties you can appear SSC CGL or apply for bank posts after you complete your MSc degree.
Hope you are clear!
i not update date in my photo for ssc cgl but the application status showed that it was submitted what can do for this and overcome this problem
Unfortunately if you have submitted the application form you cannot edit any information given in it. There isn't any correction window for SSC CGL application so you can only edit if you haven't made the final submission. You cannot apply once again since there is any provision for that even if you try to register new email ID then it will show a warning that' SSC roll number has already been registered'. And if there are any discrepancies in the photograph then your application might get rejected.
please tell career options after clearing ssc cgl and how to pursue those career after clearing ssc cgl?
here are the career opportunity after clearing SSC CGL -
- Inspector (Central Excise)
- Tax Assistant(Central board of direct taxes)
- Tax Assistant(Central board of Excise and custom taxes)

Based on your merit they assign the above posts to you.

in ssc cgl tier 2 ,one admit card is sufficient or two admit cards are required for paper1 and paper2???
Only one Admit Card is sufficient for your SSC CGL Tier 2 exam. You might have had a separate Admit Card for Tier 1 and now for Tier 2 exam you must download a separate Admit Card from their Official Website. They have also given an additional Website incase of server crash. So, you can download from any one of their Official Websites your Admit Card.
All the best!
