Questions related to SSC JE
good evening sir sir i am student of diploma in electrical engineering for campus placement is SSC je coaching sufficient for crack campus placement
The syllabus for SS JE and campus recruitment will be entirely different. The difficulty level varies. And the recruitment procedure varies depending on the type of company. You need to prepare a strategy to prepare for campus recruitment. You need to first check the companies visiting for campus recruitment. Know the recruitment procedure, what will be the exam pattern, what all topics will be asked. For example there will be coding exam to test the programming language skills of the candidate so you should prepare for coding. There might be questions asked from core subjects, for that you can prepare from your textbooks and reference books. You need to understand the fundamentals. After checking the syllabus you need to practice the questions, you can get practice questions in the internet to prepare for the recruitment exam. Give mock tests so that you will know where you are committing mistakes, rectify those mistakes and perform well.
i have applied to SSC CHSL but payment is not happening because of photo issue. how to apply fresh application for ssc chsl? and i have also applied for SSC JE. if i apply to ssc chsl by creating new registration ID will they reject SSC JE because of two registration number on same documents?
You can not apply fresh SSC CHSL from there is no option for applying a fresh from and you can not create a new registration ID with the same name again. There is no way to apply for SSC CHSL again. I would suggest you to contact the officials so that they can guide you with further process. You will find the contact details in the official website. Combined Higher Secondary Level (CHSL) is conducted by Staff Selection Commission (SSC) to recruit the candidates for posts of Postal Assistants/Sorting Assistants (PA/SA), Data Entry Operator (DEO) and Lower Divisional Clerk (LDC).
Can Final Year BE Students apply?
The basic requirement for ssc je is that every candidate should have at least passed the Matriculation/ Secondary Examination Certificate or an equivalent degree from a recognised Board. But in addition to this you need to complete your diploma/ degree to be eligible for the examination. Therefore you cannot apply for ssc je while you are in your college.

hello,I have passed btech in 2020 and while filling ssc je online application form I entered cgpa 7.5 there and now I got provisional degree certificate and cgpa mentioned on it is 7.71 so is there any problem will come in further procedure?
see right now till the examination you will no face any isue, however at the last of the process of document verification you might asked to justify the mis match of scores in application form and original document. I hope since the original marks is greater then application forms score, there is less chances of cancellation. now it would totally depends on exams authority final decision.
Hi, i was successfully applied for ssc je but today i came to know that i did not mentioned date on photo. Is SSC gives chance to modify application which are rejected ??
In the official notification of SSC , it is said that without the date the application will be rejected. Now if it will give you a date of modification isn't clearly mentioned anywhere. So if you can cancel your application if options available and apply newly to be safe. Also you can contact the SSC regional office or any helpline number and talk about this. They will guide you a way out.
I hope my answer helps you. Have a great day!
