Questions related to SSC CGL

Have a question related to SSC CGL ?

Hello Sakshi,

First of all Don't worry.

When filling out the SSC CGL form and asked for the roll number or roll code, you can use the "Seat Number" mentioned on your SSC (Maharashtra Board) certificate. The "Seat Number" is equivalent to the roll number or roll code for the purposes of the form.

Here are the steps you can follow:

  1. Locate the Seat Number : Find the "Seat Number" on your SSC certificate. This is typically a unique number assigned to you during your exams.
  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.
  3. Check Forums/Groups : Look for advice from other candidates who might have faced similar issues on educational forums or social media groups dedicated to SSC exam preparation.

Hope it helps!

Hello aspirant,

The SSC CGL syllabus 2024 was released by the Staff Selection Commission through an official announcement on The subjects and subtopics included in the question paper are listed in detail in the SSC CGL 2024 curriculum.

To know the complete syllabus you can visit our website by clicking on the link given below.

Yes,  failing one subject in 12th grade but passing overall and completing graduation in first division will likely make you eligible for the SSC CGL exam and document verification. The Staff Selection Commission (SSC) requires a candidate to have passed the 12th class examination from a recognized board. As long as you have a passing certificate for 12th standard, even with a fail in one subject, you meet the basic eligibility criteria.

The SSC CGL emphasizes your graduation degree for most posts. Since you have a first-class graduation, it strengthens your application.

While the general eligibility mentions passing 12th, some specific posts within the SSC CGL might have stricter requirements. Double-check the notification for the specific post you're interested in to ensure there are no additional requirements regarding class 12th subjects or marks.

During document verification, the SSC might ask about the failed subject in 12th. Be prepared to explain the situation honestly. Having a first-class graduation demonstrates your academic ability overall.

I hope it helps!
