Hi Amarjeet,

The Staff Selection Commission- Conbined Graduate Level examination is held annually to allot jobs in the various departments of the  governments. Unfortunately, the SSC has declared that starting from 2020, a candidate should be between the ages of 20 and 30 to be eligible to answer this examination. As you are 36 years old, you are not eligible for SSC-CGL 2020-21.

kya UPSC SSC CGL ka syllabus same h kya UPSC ke sman hi ijjat milti h cgl valo ko

Apoorva Student Expert 16th Nov, 2019

Hello dear student,

Both are on entirely different levels but guess what's the plus point is both are government jobs and both have job security with them . It really depends even if you are going to get a job by cracking SSC cgl then yes you are going to have a good place. While it depends at which position you are seeking or joining the job . While upsc is at a very different level and scale . It do have a different position if we look at . I hope this was helpful. While both are prestigious at their own places .

Best wishes

i will complete graduation in june 2020 can i apply for ssc cgl 2019?

Ronak Gala Student Expert 15th Nov, 2019

Yes definitely you can apply for ssc cgl 2019 even if you are completing your graduation in 2020. The only eligibility criteria required for the exam is bachelor's degree or equivalent from a recognized university and board. The exam registration has a very long process. So just do submit all the required certificates properly and safely. The exam procedure is too long. Till now, CGL 2016 is about to take place and CGL 2017 is not yet out only. So maybe once you come in 2020 after that only CGL 2019 comes out so you have a high chance to apply.

Best wishes. Thank you.
