Combined Graduate Level examination was held in the month of August. Within two weeks of the last exam date, Staff Selection Commission has released answer keys for Tier I. Candidates can now use the official answer keys to know the correct answers to questions asked in exam, and also estimate marks they have obtained in CGLE. They can predict chances of qualifying the first round by comparing their score with CGL cut offs.
Last time the CGL cut off for Tier I stood at 137 for UR, 114 for SC, 103 for ST, 125 for OBC, 92 for ex-servicemen, 97 for OH, 20 for HH, and 68 for VH. Overall 149319 had qualified. This time the number of candidates who had registered to appear in CGL examination was more than 20 lakh. Only those who get marks equal to or more than cut off score will be eligible to appear in Tier II. As per result datesheet published by the Commission, SSC CGL 2017 Result for Tier I will be declared on October 31, 2017.
SSC CGL 2017 was held as computer based tests from August 5, 2017, to August 24, 2017. Today the answer keys were uploaded and made public at ssc.nic.in. Candidates need to visit the answer keys webpage and login using User ID, and Password. The user ID and password to be used for login will be same as ones used for examination.
If anyone comes across any discrepancy in the official answer key, then they can submit representations online. The process of doing so is to login, check answer key, then click on relevant button for submission of representations. Further, a fee of Rs 100 per question has to be paid online per representation.
Candidates can submit these issues between September 7, 2017, 5 PM to September 12, 2017, 5 PM. Any requests to consider issues in official answer key of SSC CGL 2017 Tier I will not be considered under any circumstances by the Commission.
Representations received from the candidates on answer keys uploaded on the website of the Commission will be carefully examined and the keys will be suitably modified wherever necessary. The modified answer keys will then be used for evaluation.
There are five sections in the online exam. General intelligence reasoning section has 25 questions of 50 marks. General awareness section has 25 questions of 50 marks. Quantitative aptitude section has 25 questions of 50 marks. English comprehension has 25 questions of 50 marks. An overall time limit of 60 minutes is there to attempt 100 questions for 200 marks.
For every correct answer, candidates are awarded 2 marks. There is also negative marking of 0.50 for each wrong answer. While going through the answer key, candidates can calculate marks by implementing this marking scheme.
The result of SSC CGL 2017 Tier I will also be published at ssc.nic.in. Recently, the commission had announced SSC SI ASI Result, which was surprisingly published 3 days before the scheduled date. Therefore there are chances that even Combined Graduate Level results will be published earlier than it is notified. Candidates must keep checking ssc.nic.in and SSC CGL Result 2017 at regular intervals.
