SSC CGL 2016 Result, which was expected in the third week of October, has been delayed by almost three weeks as the examination authority has announced November 8 as the fresh tentative result date for the exam appeared by about 15 lakh candidates.
“The result for CGLE (Tier-I)-2016, in context of the revised schedule of the examination, is tentatively proposed to be declared on 08.11.2016,” an official notification from Staff Selection Commission (SSC) read. Subsequently, the Combined Graduate Level Exam (CGLE) (Tier-II)-2016 would be tentatively held from November 30 to December 2, 2016.
The delay in the SSC CGL result 2016 has been apparently caused by re-examination of one batch of candidates who appeared for the test in the Second Shift (Batch-II) of the CGLE Tier-I which was held at 4.15 PM – 5.30 PM on 27.08.2016, officials said. “The Commission, due to administrative reasons, has decided to conduct a re-examination for one Shift,” the exam officials said.
The tentative date for re-examination is October 27, 2016. According to SSC, “the re-examination will be conducted only for those candidates who had actually appeared in Batch-II on 27.08.2016.”
The exam authority is expected to announce further details in this regard very soon.
The Staff Selection Commission had conducted the Combined Graduate Level Examination, 2016 Tier-I in the Computer Based Mode in 43 Batches from August 27 to September 11 at about 415 venues in 96 cities throughout the country. Against 38.04 lakh registered candidates, about 14.99 lakh candidates actually appeared in the said Examination.
