When a Reserved Candidate is said to be qualified on UR Standards in SSC exams

A reserved category candidates, if meets the cut-off that of UR candidates and has not sought age relaxation is said to be qualified on UR standards. In that case he also becomes eligible to be appointed on UR seats too.

For example in a Combined Graduate Level (CGL) Exam the final result cut-off for UR is 354.75; and if an OBC, etc candidate has scored 354.75 or more marks and is aged below 30 on the day of reckoning age for the exam will be said that he has qualified on UR standards.

Now, assuming that the number of UR vacancies in that exam is 1552 and for OBC it is 883, for him the total vacancies will be 1552 (vacancies for UR) + 883 (Vacancies for OBC) = 2435. Otherwise his vacancies would have been just 883. Also while allotting seat to him he is chosen for the category which is in his favour.
