The Staff Selection Commission (SSC) was expected to release the final result of the SSC CGL 2019 examination on February 15, 2022. However, there has been a delay in announcing the same and there has been no official update regarding the same. The reason behind this delay in announcing the results is due to a pending case with the Delhi High Court.
Why this delay?
Usually, the vacancies are released after the declaration of the results but SSC has already published the list of tentative vacancies. This can be interpreted that the commission has already prepared the results but will only publish them once the decision of the Delhi High Court is presented regarding the pending case. It can now be expected that the results will be available tentatively in the second week of March 2022.
The case was filed on April 20, 2021 by a candidate who was dissatisfied with the declared results. For nearly a year, the date for the case kept on getting postponed and ultimately February 15, 2022 was fixed for hearing. However, the hearing could not take place on the same date and it got postponed to February 21, 2022.
As understood from a YouTube video released by Kapoor GuruCool, the date was again postponed to February 24, 2022 since the advocate representing SSC was unavailable on the previous date. Following the same trend, the date got postponed once again and the hearing will now take place on March 08, 2022.

For examinations that are conducted over multiple shifts, SSC has decided to normalize the scores of the candidates using a procedure and formula. This has been decided after taking into account the variation in the difficulty levels of the question papers over different shifts of the examination. It is an assumption that is justified since there is a large number of candidates who appear over multiple shifts for the examination.
Similarly, the procedure of allocation of shifts to the candidates is very random. Hence, to address the issue, SSC has devised a formula using which the final scores of the candidates are going to be calculated. The image attached below highlights the exact normalization scheme that will be followed for the final declaration of results.
The Commission had already conducted the Tier 3 of the examination on November 22, 2020, and the candidates were called for document verification between September 01 and 30, 2021. Until the results are officially announced, the results will be kept in sealed covers and the appointment letters will not be issued.
