SSC CGL 2013 Exam Pattern


In Tier I, there is a negative marking of 0.25 marks for each wrong answer.

In Tier-II, there is negative marking of 0.25 marks in Paper-II and III & 0.50 marks in Paper-I for each wrong answer.

Candidates are advised to keep this in mind while answering the questions.

Staff Service Commission(SSC) has announced that the candidates who will qualify in Tier I and Tier-II of the Examination, for Computer Proficiency Test and Interview for posts of Assistant in CSS, Interview for other Interview posts, Data Entry Skill Test for posts of Tax Assistant and document verification for other non-interview posts, will be subjected to a Short Descriptive paper of not more than 1 hour’s duration, with questions drawn from “English Language and Comprehension”, “Quantitative Abilities” and “General Awareness”.
The Short Description Paper will be only qualifying in nature and will not be taken into account for determining the position of the candidates in merit order. The paper will help to screen those candidates who might have taken advantage of unfair means in Tier-I and II examinations. The proposed short descriptive papers/online test will not only screen but deter those candidates who intend to use unfair means in examination.
This is a great step by SSC as it will help screen undeserving candidates from the final selection and SSC will also consider to take legal action against those candidates.
