sir mera BA me 50% hai kya mai ssc cgl ka form bhar sakta hu. please request

pri111nah 1st May, 2022


Yes you can.

Go ahead and get a job buddy.

Few very important points that should be clear to the Govt job aspirants :-

  • No % barrier in Graduation for SSC/UPSC exams.
  • You have to be just a pass the graduation to be eligible.
  • Some recruitment have the option for final year appearing candidates to take up exam provisionally.
  • Few recruitment add up combined score deriving from % marks in academics
  • Percentile method is followed as for now to decide the cut off.

You can apply for SSC CGL if you pass your graduation. There is no marks criteria for almost all the posts.

Quoting from SSC CGL official notification : All other Posts: Bachelor’s Degree from a recognized University or equivalent.

There is no mention of minimum marks you must obtain in order to apply.

Hope this helps.

Good luck.


Sir i want to become an ias officer. Im from Telangana state Ive completed upto inter in Ts. which is best option for degree+civils course in hyderabad Institutions or sarat chandra ias academy in vijayawada??

Sohamsengupta8 30th Apr, 2022

Hello Student

First of all you have to take graduation with honours which will be better from social science or political science or economics or English. Completion of graduation you have to take admission in any of the reputed guidance or coaching centre or institution after verifying their activities and success record. If you are a student of Andhra Pradesh then your choice should be better if you get admission in any of the reputed institution for IAS guidance in Hyderabad.

Hope this will help.
