Agar mai SSC STENOGRAPHER ka exam Hindi medium mein krti hu ton kia Skill test English mein kr skti hu
As such there is no co-relation mentioned between the SSC stenographer CB test and skill test as the Computer Based Test is itself available in both English and Hindi (except the English Language and Comprehension part).
For the skill test you have to select the language while filling the form as it cannot be changed later. If you haven't selected a language, by default your skill test will be in English.
Additionally, it has been mandated for Hindi Stenographers to learn English Stenography and vice-versa, failing which your probation period might not get cleared. ( it is an after exam scenario)
