my dob is 07-07-2004 am i still eligible for the ssc chsl exam in 2022
The basic minimum eligibility criteria that candidates need to meet in order to appear for SSC CHSL is that a candidate must be aged between 18 and 27 years as of January 1, 2021, and should have passed class 12. Considering you are born in 2004, as of today your age will be 16 as of Jan 1,2021. So you won't be eligible.
Hope this helps!
My raw score in ssc chsl 2021 is 91. What will be my normalised score? shall I prepare for tier 2? I am coming under SC category.
Actually your normalized score depends upon the shift of your exam - whether it was easy, moderate or tough that decides how much your marks will add upon.
Sorry to say but your marks are bit low even if you come under SC category. Your score should have been atleast 130 + to expect of a good score after normalisation after referring to previous cut-offs.
I will suggest you to carry on your preparation for tier 2 and be prepared for it whatever the results may be. After the results you can start again for tier 1. This will give you an edge over others atleast for next attempt.
All the Best!!!
