which grade should I select in ssc cgl if Im pursuing final year student

Aman Raj Student Expert 24th Nov, 2019

Hello Naveena

There are no Grade A jobs under SSC recruitment. All the Grade A officers for central govt. are recruited through UPSC. SSC recruits Grade B and Grade C officers. Though there is a Gazetted post (under SSC) like AAO, but it is also Grade B. For Grade A you must prepare for UPSC exams like civil services, defence exams (CDS, OTA, assistant commandant etc). I hope it helped you.

I am filling SSC CGL form 2019. I see only two options . Post of Junior statistical officer and post of statistical investigator grade || .. what about other posts? does it mean if i fill no for both of these . rest all posts are open to me to choose later?

Dear Aspirant,

These are additional posts and required additional qualification on your part. For junior statistical officer your age must be between 30-32 and for statistical investigator grade II, you have to have statistics as a subject in your graduation.

If you comply with these qualification, fill them, otherwise, you are eligible for all the posts other than these two.

Hope this helps. Thank you.
