4) Competition:

The demand graph for SSC - CGL is constantly on the rise over the last 3 years. For 6000 vacancies over 15 lac aspirants applied for representing 250 times the number of vacancies. Thus, 1 in every 250 aspirants last year would have landed their job with a Government Department.

This year as well, the trend is expected to continue. The number of vacancies are still not known, but is expected to be in the region of 20000 and we project that over 17 lac applicants will apply for this. This is resulting in increasing cut-off every year.

The SSC CGL Tier-2 will have two papers, viz, Quantitative Abilities and English Comprehension, each has a weightage of 200 Marks.

Is there a penalty: Yes, 1/4th of the alloted marks will be deducted for every wrong answer.

The Subject-wise weightage for SSC CGL exams for different sections are as under,
