hello sir. this is sairam Narsingh. I applied for ssc chsl 2020 . by mistake I did not mention post number in application form.. I m so worry about it.. is there any edit option? sir

Sanjay Khandelwal 11th Jan, 2020
I could not understand what you are trying to say. There is no post number in ssc chsl application form. If you are talking about address post then i dont think it will make a big mess. But for post preference there is no option given for Selection. You are just asked about DEO if you had science in 10+2 and nothing else.

for chsl you need to really have good grip on english and gk, as time is less but questions is more. if you get 80% questions correctly attempt from english and gk then it is a plus point. I suggest you to regularly practice numerical aptitude to make yourself faster in solving questions.

all the best for exams.

I applied under EWS category in ssc chsl application and submitted with payment too. Now after knowing eligibility of EWS I am not under this section.. so is there any chance to make it correct?

Sharon Rose Student Expert 21st Dec, 2019


There is no window for correction of your application form.You could make changes before submitting the application but as you have already submitted and made the payment you cannot do anything.You need to apply once again using a new mail id and phone number and make payment.
