1) Time Duration : SSC had revised the time limit for Tier-1 Exam. In 2017 CGL Exam, you will have only 60 minutes Tier-1 Exam. Earlier Tier-1 has duration of 75 minutes, which is now reduced to only 1 Hours. There will be 100 Questions (200 Marks)

6) Post Preference: If you think, that filling the SSC CGL post preferences is a headache for you, then SSC eases the process as the Post Preference only filled at the time of Document Verification, will be considered as valid. So no need to worry, much at the time of filling the CGL Online form 2017

7) Syllabus : If, you have appeared in the previous CGL 2016 Exam and did not qualify, then don't start you preparation from where you left, as there are No Changes in the SSC CGL Syllabus in 2017

SSC's Combined Graduate Level Exam (CGLE) is India's one of the most sought after Government Job Exam in India, the reason is that, it opens the gateway to high salaried Group B and Group C posts in Central Government Departments and Ministries. Every year, around 30-40 lakh applications, are received for CGL Exam. In 2016, an all time high record was created with 38 lakh applications received for CGL 2016 Exam and in 2017 this number may touch even 40 Lakhs., with the addition of lakhs of fresh Graduates, passing out every year.

So, imagine an exam where 40 lakh candidates apply for a few thousand posts , the competition can be whooping high. The applicant vacancy ration in CGL Exam is 1:600, ie 500 students are in competition for a every single post in CGL Exam. But the Good news is that CGL 2017 will be big as far vacancies are concerned. It is expected that 2017 CGL Exam may have more than 20000 vacancies and bulk of these vacancies will be for Income Tax Department.

The popularity of this exam can also be understood by the fact, that as and when the SSC CGL 2017 Notification, is announced, it will get viral in no time. There are several websites, Facebook pages, that are sharing article on SSC CGL. Even News portals Like Zee News, Indian Express, India Today are reporting news on CGL Exam.

It is worth mentioning here that CGL Exam is held only once in a calendar year and this is why, there is a craze for this exam and this results in tremendous increase of applicants with every passing year. SSC announces the Exam dates in advance through its Exam Calendar, that is released by the end of every year. 

In 2016, SSC Exam Calendar was announced on 13th November and the SSC Calendar 2017 was announced much earlier ie in the third week of October. As per the SSC Calendar 2017, the Notification for CGL 2017 Exam, will be announced on 16th May.

It is not yet clear regarding the exact date of announcement of SSC CGL Notification, but today, a Short Notice is uploaded on the Official website SSC Eastern Region, informing that Online Registration for various categories of posts will start from 2nd week of April, 2017.

However, there is no mentions, that whether these posts will be of SSC CGL, SSC CAPFs, Or some other posts.

WE are not very sure that these will be SSC CGL post. So, we have to wait till the 2nd week of April, to know which these posts are. 

Common Exam for Government Jobs, NCS likely to conduct the Tier-1

Over the Last few days, there is discussion on Social Media, that why the SSC Exams Like CGL, CPO are postponed, some say, that SSC wants to change the Selection criteria, and for that it is awaiting approval from DOPT, Government of India.

SSC CGL 2017 Notification Postponed

SSC is yet to confirm the upcoming Date of SSC CGL 2017 Notification. As per the Calendar, Notification was to be announced on 11th March, 2017, but SSC again failed to comply with the Tentative Schedule and Notification was not announced on said date.

Even Leading News Websites Like India Today, Zee News, Indian Express have reported that CGL 2017 Notification, will be announced on 11th March, but it looks SSC has some different Plans

Here are some possible reasons, that lead to Delay in the Notification

1) First SSC want to complete the Recruitment process for CGL 2016 Tier-1 Exam. CGL 2016 Tier-3 Paper is scheduled on 11th March, 2017 and after that there will be Tier-IV and this whole process many take more than a month to complete.

And Last But not the Least.

Postponing Notification and Exam Dates have become a routine at SSC.

Once, we get any update on the CGL Notification, we will inform you through this page.

Important Highlights of SSC CGL 2017 Exam

1) In 2017, CGL Exam may have record no. of vacancies, thanks to Central Government's decision to create 2.83 lakh vacancies in 2017-18. As recruitment for Central Government Departments is done by SSC, so this year, CGL will be a big Exam, with maximum people applying for it and Bumper vacancies

2) For 2017 CGL Exam, Age Limit is raised by 3 years. Earlier the Upper age limit for CGL posts is 27 years, but with this increase, candidates upto the age of 30 can apply for CGL 2017 Exam. Here is our Detailed post on SSC CGL 2017 Age Limit.
