SSC CGLE AGE LIMITS & EDUCATIONAL QUALIFICATIONS

Combined Graduate Level Exam (CGLE) aspirants are advised to see the age limit and educational qualification for every post of this exam before sending their applications. Staff Selection Commission (SSC) publishes the eligibility criteria along with every year’s recruitment notification. There maybe some changes in the eligibility criteria from the previous year So the candidates who are interested in applying for the exam should wait until then.

Since many of the candidates who are preparing for the SSC recruitment are fairly new to this scenario, they might not have a fair idea regarding what the eligibility criterian of a particular exam is. While considering this you should very carefully notice that the eligibility date, both in the case of educational qualification and age limit might be changed when the Staff Selection Commission (SSC) comes up with the recruitment notification.

DoPT CIRCULAR IN REGARD

According to this the crucial date for determining the age limits for competitive examinations held for recruitment by UPSC/SSC etc. in the first half of the year is the first day of January of the year in which the examination is held; and if the examination is held in the second half of the year, the crucial date will be the first day of August of the year in which the examination is held.

If an examination is held in two parts on two different dates of the year, the crucial date for determining the age limits will normally be the 1st of January when both parts of the examination fall in the first half of the year, and when both parts of the examination fall in the second half of the year the crucial date for determining the age limits will be the 1st of August .

It may sometimes happen that due to exigencies of the circumstances an examination, which is normally held during the first half of the year, is shifted to the second half. In such a case, the date of determining the age limits would still be the 1st of January.
