Like last year, the exam will be computer-based and will have 100 questions carrying two marks each. The exam will have objective questions and candidates who qualify in SSC Tier I will only be eligible for Tier II exam which will be a pen-paper based exam.
The Tier I exam is scheduled in August, which roughly leaves a month for preparation. SSC CGL is one of the most coveted exams for government job aspirants. According to a reply to an RTI query, the commission had revealed that 14.25 lakh candidates had appeared in the SSC CGL exam conducted in 2016. The number is only expected to increase this year. This makes the last month of preparation all the more important.
