In a notification published by the Staff Selection Commission (SSC) on December 21, 2016, the commission has released tentative dates for the Combined Graduate level Tier 2 2016 exam. The Commission has decided to conduct re-examination for SSC CGL Tier 2 2016, tentatively on January 12, 13, 2017.

There was widespread mismanagement reported at exam centers across the country, after which the commission received representations from candidates alleging that they faced technical and other related problems during the examination at some of the venues. The Commission objectively scrutinised the representations received till December 9, 2016.

The Commission, after due examination of video footages, has taken a serious view of certain candidates found to have been actively involved in disturbing and instigating other candidates to disrupt the process of the examination. The Commission proposes to take appropriate action against such candidates, which may include disqualification and debarment for a period of three years, in consonance with the extant guidelines.

The SSC CGL Tier 2 2016 Exam was conducted by the SSC for 1,49,330 candidates in the online Mode on November 30 and December 2, 2016.

SSC conducts various exams throughout the year and recruits eligible candidates to various posts in government offices and departments as Assistant Audit Officer, Inspector (Examiner) (CBEC), Income Tax Inspector (CBDT), Assistant (MEA), Compiler (Registrar General of India), Senior Secretariat Assistant, Accountant (Offices under C&AG, CGA & others), Tax Assistant (CBEC & CBDT), Statistical Investigator and Sub-Inspector (Central Bureau of Narcotics) among others.

Marks secured by candidates in tier 1 will be considered while selecting them for computer test and also for final selection (See page 17).
