The SSC is responsible for conducting recruitment exams at a pan-India level for recruiting suitable candidates for job in various government offices, ministries and departments. The SSC holds this exam every year in which lakhs of candidates participate.
The SSC CGL exam is for candidates who have passed graduation. The SSC’s Common High School Level (CHSL) exam is for those candidates who have passed the high school level.
The SSC CGL exam used to be conducted in a hand written medium but it was made a computer based examination from this year. There were only 100 questions this year as opposed to 200 questions last year. Since this was the first time the exam was made computer based, candidates were given more time to attempt the paper as well.
