14th October, 2016 (Big Big Update)

Putting an end to all the Rumours spreading around the SSC CGL 2016 Tier-1 Result Date, SSC had finally issued a Notification cum clarification regarding the CGL result and Tier-2 Exam Dates. SSC had also cited the reasons that led to the delay in the announcement of results

As per the Notification.

1) SSC had decided to conduct the RE-Exam of One Shift which in Second Shift (Batch-2) of CGL Tier-1 Exam, held on 27th August, 2016 at 4:15 PM to 5:30 PM.It is worth mentioing here that Re-Exam, will be only for those, who have actually appeared for the exam on that Day and Shift.

The tentative Date of conduct of RE-Exam is 27th October, 2016. Information, regarding the downloading of Admit Cards, will be intimated to candidates in due course.

2)  Due to this Re-Exam, the Result of SSC CGL Tier-1 Exam will now be announced on 8th November, 2016.

3) Moreover, SSC CGL Tier-2 Exams are tentatively scheduled to be held from 30th Nov to 2nd Dec, 2016.

Note : The Firm Dates, will be announced soon.

8th October Update : 

Earlier, we have informed you, that CGL  2016 Results will be declared on 7th October, 2016. But it seems, that SSC has delayed the results for some time, due to some technical reasons.

1) There is confirmation that results are prepared, but SSC wants to do away with the traditional method of declaring results in PDF Format. Instead SSC, wants to declare the results by way of Candidates checking their results using their Registration Details, Roll No and Date of Birth individually.

2) Moreover, SSC had also found some candidates who have multiple appearances in CGL Tier-1 Exam. So, SSC need to sort out the Result sheet after cancelling the candidature of these candidates

3) If, SSC, goes on to declare the results in PDF format, then it can declare anytime. But, if they prefer to declare the results by Individual Logins, then we have to wait for at least one week.

Expected Date: We expect that SSC may announced the results before 15th October, 2016 . keep checking this space for Real time updates on SSC CGL Result 2016

  17. a victim

    why only batch-ll will have a second chance?every one should have same fair chance.
    I was a candidate of batch -3,& I faced many many problems,and I am sure that many others also faced several problems like me.
    First pf all the software of exam was very very slow,for that so many problems we faced—some time I clicked but the next qustion was not apearing on screen,so I have to click for 2-3 times.For it suddenly 2 qus tions skiped away.After giving 1 ans I jad to wait for long tme for the next qus to appear.
    &foremost due to the slow software, a hige amount of time was wasted.Mind set up for exam was totally shaken.
    At first when the exam started my computer was not logging in,so I have to do all the procedeure of log in once more & also with help of an exam gaurd,due tp this mishap i lost about precious 2-4 mins of my exam.
    the total mind set up for a exam like this went down.this costed me ending up giving a bad exam.The exam could have been much better,but it didnt.Even I gave some wrong ansers due to all of this.some times the mouse was also not working.I clicked on suppose on 1 & the click was on 2.After Doing all things right I ended up giving a wrong ans.

    How would you compensate thaese,when it is aquestion of a life,my life.
    From a organisation like this that kind of mistakes is not expected,&I am very sorry to say that.

  18. a victim

    I know a simple ,just one candidates pleeding does not have any value but what i am trying to say that we,the common peoples who are fighting for their luves,have a grear expectation from organization like yours,from govt..
    we look up to you guys sir.
    so pls be a little more sincier in these matters.
