The result of Staff Selection Commission (SSC) CGL 2016 for tier 1 exam will be announced sometime next week on ssc.nic.in for the examinations that were conducted in online mode between August 27 to September 11. The SSC CGL result is awaited by 14,25,234 candidates who took the tier 1 exam in newly introduced computer based format while roughly over 25 lakh had applied.
Update: The latest news states that the results will be out only after Oct 20. Read full report here.
On October 6th, we published here that results will be out on October 7th, based on a report by unofficial source SSC Tube. Results, however, were not declared and neither did SSC notified anything about it. The source later mentioned that the results were withheld amid technical problems being faced by SSC in uploading that same.
According to SSC Tube, the Staff Selection Commission (SSC) is trying to publish CGL result 2016 in individual format which candidates will be able to check by entering their roll number and date of birth, ditching the traditional merit list/PDF list format. Also, many candidates have seem to appeared for the test in more than once shift which may take time by SSC to scrutinize. It’s not clear yet whether SSC CGL result will be uploaded in PDF or in individual format.
In 2015, the tier examination for CGL was held in August on 9th, 16th and 30th and the Commission had released the results on September 30, within a month after the entire examination conducting process was over. The tier 2 exams were then held on Oct 25 and 26. A total of 1,44,871 candidates had qualified the tier 1 to appear for tier 2 exam in 2015.
Based on last year’s stats and also including the ongoing reports, it will be safe to assume that SSC CGL tier 1 result 2016 will be declared around mid-October i.e., in next few days. The Commission is on the fast-track when it comes to conducting exams and declaring results this year. As of this moment, SSC officially has not issued any write-up or statement that may verify the reports and familiarize candidates about the result declaration.
According to the tentative schedule, Tier 2 will be conducted in November and if that timeline stays it course, it sure shot that SSC result for CGL Tier 1 2016 exam will have to outed soon, most probably in next few days itself. There’s a solid chance that results may be published in next 3-4 days if not today. The holidays may affect the declaration till Wednesday and if so, results may be out on Thursday. But all this is assumption, and without any official confirmation it is hard to say the exact date for results outing.
Important: Candidates who are trying to apply for various SSC exams should know that the commission has halted the facility till 13 October noon since SSC websites are down and registration dates have been extended.
