I have entered class 10 Roll No. as F98564D - 9876 in my SSC CHSL 2020 registration. Can they reject me during document verification due to extra space and hyphen given in between? Letters are correct though.(Note: Only / and - are allowed. If Roll code and No. is given then Roll code - Roll No.)
No you will not be rejected based on this . If you have entered the right roll number in the same format given in your 10th certificate , then you do not have to worry. Moreover during document verification ,you can say the space was entered by mistake, if they ask. Such small typing mistakes won't be an issue. They mainly strict with the format of photo and signature ,so rejections will happen only on the basis of mistakes in the same. So instead of worrying about that focus on your preparation and do well in the exam.
All the best
