Re - Percentage Scored in Qualifying Exam. I graduated from a medical college. Theres no CGPA and for NEET PG we usually enter percentages for all years separately. For SSC-CGL, does it refer only to final year or the average of 4 years?
The eligibility criteria for SSC CGL 2020 for Junior Statistical Officer post is that a candidate must have passed Bachelor’s Degree in any discipline from a recognized University with minimum 60% Marks in Mathematics in 10+2 level or must have passed Bachelor’s Degree in any discipline with Statistics as one of the subjects. For Assistant Audit Officer/ Assistant Accounts Officer and all other post a candidate must have passed bachelor's degree from a recognized board.
So there is no minimum percentage required in qualifying exam to be eligible to appear for SSC CGL but in the application form you have to enter the education details, you have to enter the aggregate percentage that you have scored in all semesters/years in the qualifying exam.
hello my frnd belongs to veershaiva lingayat which comes under the general category. but OBC under Karnataka govt. which category should she need to fill in application form of neet pg 2021?
If a student belongs to obc category then his/her category should be mentioned in the central list of obc caste. And since you friend belongs to general caste according to the central list therefore she has to apply as a general candidate and not as an obc candidate.
