Revised answer key of SSC GD contains all 100 objective questions asked in the paper of that candidate. Incorrect options have a red cross against them, and right answers have a green tick. Chosen option is written along with question ID. However, issuance of this final answer key has no bearing upon issuance of admit card of SSC GD 2019 for PET, which is to be released by CAPFs.


There is no way to directly know how many answers have been changed. To do that, candidates have to compare the provisional answer key with the final version. If there are any changes, then it means that that question had been challenged by one or more candidates, and the Commission found it to be actually incorrect, and changed that answer.

In SSC’s own words, the final answer key has been published in order to have more transparency in the examination system. Now candidates know exactly where they gained marks and where they lost marks. It is as per the final revised version only that SSC has evaluated marks for candidates for the purpose of result of SSC GD 2019 that was announced on 21st June. Candidates were awarded 1 mark for every correct answer. No marks were deducted for incorrect answers. Marks so obtained were further revealed on 5th July.
