The Staff Selection Commission released the much awaited notification for the examinations to be conducted for the year 2019-20. The calendar states that the application form for this year’s Combined Graduate Level exam( CGL) and Combined Higher Secondary Level (10 +2) examinations (CHSL) have been pushed to the final quarter of this academic year. It has been indicated that the two prime exams i.e. CHSLand CGL 2019 examinations might not be held this year.

The Commission stated that the opening date of applications for CGL will be October 31. While for CHSL, the applicants will be able to apply for the exam from December 12. This has been the trend of SSC for last few years. And it is the cascading effect of delay in exams from the year 2016, 2017 and 2018 and so on.

According to the calendar, the level  I examination for the post of Sub Inspector in Delhi Police will be held between 11 and 13 December of 2019. Applicants can fill the forms for the same between September 17 and October 15.

Postponement of examinations for the Academic Year 2018-19


The calendar indicates that tier I of CGL exam 2018 is scheduled to be conducted from June 4 to June 19, while the tier I for CHSL 2018 will be held between July 1 and July 26 this year. The second tier of CGL and CHSL is tentatively scheduled for September.

Though the third tier of CGL will be held on December 29, there has been no notifications about the third tier exams of CHSL.

Similarly, examinations for the post of Constables, Sub Inspector and Stenographer have also been delayed. They will also be held in the first quarter of this academic year.

Last year’s Paper I for Junior Engineer exam will also be held this year between 23 and 29 September. The notified application for the same will be published by SSC on February 2. This exam will be for all three verticals i.e. Civil, Electrical and Mechanical Engineers. The level II of this exam will be held on 29 December this year.

Decline in number of Applicants


Over the years, due to delay in examinations conducted by the Commission there has been fall in percentage of people who actually appear for the examination. In a notice SSC stated that mere 31 per cent of the total applications for the posts of Junior Hindi Translator, Junior Translator, and Senior Hindi Translator appeared for the exam. The results for the appeared candidates will be declared on March 25 this year.

Similarly for the Select Post Examinations, 2018; that were held for three levels i.e. matriculated, higher secondary and graduate, the Controller of Examinations stated that only 29 per cent of the applications appeared for the exam. This exam was conducted on January 16, 17 and 18 this year.

This leaves us with a huge question mark about the employment opportunities for lakhs of applicants who rely  upon government exams for their future.
