This is just a quick knowledge offered to you, just for your reminder.  This time what I am writing to you is reflected towards giving you a proper understanding of what is SSC CHSL and how its associated parts are significant to you?

As I am also an X-candidate in SSC competition field and more importantly a content writer, so, I often observe an underlined perception inside every other fighter these days.

Actually, what students are doing nowadays is that they intentionally/unintentionally did not understand about the board/ the conducting body of the exam and how that exam is going to convert him/her career. They just believe in giving the exam following the crowded race hoping that they will see the important associated things regarding selection once they got selected someday.

Dear candidates, Is this your way to seriously direct your target towards your career? If yes, then sorry to say, you are following a completely wrong drive.

Whenever you give any kind of exam, be it a Staff Selection Commission (SSC) one or a bank exam or any other, just keep a knot always to first study deeply about that exam that may be-

  • What is the SSC CHSL exam about?
  • How it is benefiting you;
  • What all is required from you to crack the exam,
  • Which dignity position you’ll achieve once you got selection;
  • Associated job profiles; etc.


SSC CHSL 2020 Notification

Here, in this article, I have managed to make you understand about the upcoming exam, that is, SSC CHSL 2020. So, if you are seriously applying for this post then grab some minutes out of your tight schedule to thoroughly understand the CHSL concept.

So, here we go…

 SSC CHSL 2020 Exam Introduction

CHSL stands for Combined Higher Secondary Level, which is a 10+2 level exam. As the line itself describes that the exam pattern of SSC CHSL is according to 10+2, so it is not a tough exam (unlike SSC CGL), but surely not easy to qualify.

Moving one step forward, CHSL provide following designation signature under its hood-

If the seat vacancies available inside every post are discussed then scroll your mouse just next to this statement.

Post Vacancy
Data Entry Operator (DEO) 2
Lower Division Clerk (LDC) / Junior Secretariat Assistant (JSA)  898
Postal Assistant/ Sorting Assistant 2359
Total 3259

It is not that you have to select individual category post and fight for that only. Rather, you’ll fight for total 3259 posts on behalf of CHSL, fixing which you’ll be allotted the appropriate cadre as per your obtained marks.

Now, the next question arises is “how it is decided that what category cadre should be allotted to the candidate?”

The answer is here.

  • One thing you already know that it is dependent on marks obtained by the candidate.
  • Second, this is, while the candidate fills up the application form for SSC CHSL, he/she is asked in PART-2 of form, the priorities regarding the posts. He/she lists all the designation priority wise which is used at later stages while recruiting the candidate.
  • Third thing is, once the candidate obtained the level up to the cut-off marks, he/she is allotted the seat according to his/her priority. That means, if the candidate has achieved higher marks then he can get what he desires.

But, if the candidate fails to acquire very good marks thus violating the possibility of getting the seat as per his priority, then he will be allotted seat according to the marks obtained by him. Then the seat allotment will not be done according to his pre-set priorities.
