  • Amit Kumar

    Hi, why has the notification been delayed when it was suppose to be out on March 11th?

    • Hi Amit,

      I’m sure SSC has valid reasons. The answer keys of CHSL 2017 are out. So I’m guessing the authorities shifted their focus there. But don’t worry, the CGL notification will be issued soon.

      • Amit Kumar

        Thank you ma’am. Can you provide previous year papers?

        • Yes I’ll upload them on our blog this week.

      • Mandeep Lathwal

        If degree is completed in March 2017 then a student eligible or not??

        • In that case, I insist check the age criteria. For instance if a candidate has completed graduation but is lets say 19 years old, will be deemed as ineligible for the current session.

  • Soumili Kundu

    How to apply for the exam?? can you plz give me the online form fill up link?

    • Hi Soumili, I’ll be able to provide you the official link once Staff Selection Commission issues the notification. The date put on their website is March 11th. But due to some uncertain reasons, the notification has been delayed. It should be expected by the end of this week.

  • Ram bharose

  • Rohit Bansal

    • Don’t worry.The official date was March 11th. But somehow got delayed. You start preparing. The competition will be stern. Best wishes.

  • Kratika Gupta

    • Time might be reduced. Age criteria will remain the same.

  • Soumya Basu

    The upper age limit has been increased to 30 years for inspector posts

  • Pradeep Singh

    m in the final year of b. sc life science and i want to clear cgl in the very first attempt i have good command over english but i cant say much about it true if m weak at maths, this means i cant crack cgl…. tell anyone and i have one more query, m 18 years old m i eligble for the cgl…????

    • Pradeep, if 18 is the minimum age criteria for certain posts, you’re eligible for those posts but graduation is a must as well. So once the notification is out, do check for all these important aspects.

      Coming to the question of maths, I insist practice. Don’t get disheartened. You can surely crack CGL once you start putting in a dedicated effort.

      All the very best.

      • Pradeep Singh
