Questions related to SSC CHSL
Hello sir ,l did mistake during ssc chsl portal registration.l had filled my class 12 details in place of my Matriculation details. And i have submitted the form I cannot edit. what to do now?
SSC CHSL applications closed long back and SSC generally does not allow any sort of corrections after final submission. So you cannot edit and change anything now. The instructions states that if at any point in time, it is found that the candidate have entered wrong information, the candidature is likely to be cancelled. So all you can do now is to wait till the document verification phase if you clear the exam. During the verification process, it depends on the officials to let it go and make a correction if possible or to reject it.
All the best
my brother filled ssc chsl form with 79.00 % in 12th class but after revaluation got 79.40 % marksheet . is there any problem during document verification
If the re-evaluation result is declared after the date of filling SSC CHSL online application then there won't be any issue during the document verification. The date on the marksheet will be later then the date of application submission. Moreover, the marks scored in the qualifying examination are not given any weightage. You do not have to worry regarding but it is suggested to carry the marksheet obtained before and after the re-evaluation on the day of document verification.
hii i have attached my photograph with editing DOP in ssc chsl registration form but i dont have the original photo with mewith DOP it is without DOP so, will i able to give exam with that simple ORIGINAL photo?
Yes of course you will be able to give exam even if you have different photographs for application and reporting purpose. See there is nothing mentioned in the information brochure of SSC CHSL released by SSC regarding the photographs to be carried at the examination centre. So there is no any compulsion that you have to carry the same photograph as uploaded on the application form of SSC CHSL. Other photographs can also be taken but that should be recent one and of passport size.
Along with two passport size recent colour photographs you have to carry any one ID proof from the list mentioned below :-
> Aadhaar Card/printout of E-Aadhaar,
> Driving License,
> Voter Card,
> PAN Card,
> Identity Card issued by University/College/Government
> Employer ID Card or any photo bearing ID card issued by Central/State Government

I hope this information helps you.
