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.
