The Staff Selection Commission has acknowledged the issues faced by the candidates, who appeared for the Combined Graduate Level Examination on 10 August 2017. The Commission has released a notice, ensuring that it will take proper measures so that candidates are not at disadvantage. The matter came to light when numerous candidates complaint of difficulty in viewing a particular question in the quantitative section. The problem was only faced by those candidates, who appeared for the examination in SSC CGL Tier II Batch II (13.15 pm to 14.15 pm).

SSC has fortified that it will take proper steps to deal with the situation, in the best way possible. However, it has not disclosed the exact action that will be taken. While some are expecting that the examination might be held again. The possibility of such does not seem too high. The Commission might also opt to give marks for the particular question to all the candidates or may come up with a new solution to the problem. Whatever SSC will choose to do about the situation, it will give prior information about it and will keep the interested of the candidates at priority.

SSC CGL 2017 examination is being held to fill the post of Assistant Audit Officer, Assistant Accounts Officer, Assistant Section Officer, Assistant Superintendent, etc. The selection of the candidates will be done in four tiers. For now, the examination for the Tier I of SSC CGL is being held. The last paper will be conducted on 24 August 2017. However, the technical glitch in the 10 Ausgut paper might lead to an extension.
