i got 42% marks in my graduation. which types of exam i am eligible with graduation degree. And please suggest me where i need to move banking or ssc?

Papeya Dubey Student Expert 21st Sep, 2019
Hello,

With your graduation degree, you're eligible for not only banking and ssc cgl, but even upsc cse, since all these don't ask for any specific aggregate.

Now, coming to which exam, that entirely depends on you, SSC and Banking, both are quite different. SSC conducts its recruitment in four stages, and it does take a larger amount of time compared to bank exam results. Moreover, the pattern too is different, yes there're similarities in terms of few subject, but in SSC there's always a possibility of repeating of previous year questions, hence solving pyq in ssc becomes handy, while banking exam is all about speed and precision.
