Any tips for aspirants?
Candidates wishing to appear for SSC exams & aspiring for a Government job should take the examination process seriously right from the filling up of the applications to appearing for the exam. Candidates should refer employment news or commission’s website for authentic information of SSC exams instead of approaching local vendors/cyber cafes. Hard work, regular practice & smart preparation can help candidates to crack the exam.
A peculiar trend in more rural places is that vendors often also fill forms for the candidates?
Candidates should read exam notice carefully before applying for the exam and Fill the form personally with due care instead of relying on friend/relatives. Sometimes, ‘wrong’ or misleading information is jotted on the form because of miscommunication Result are uploaded on commission’s website from time to time, so candidates are requested to refer the commission website for result i.e ssc.nic.in or www.sscwr.net.
