06 March 2018: The Staff Selection Commission (SSC) has released an official notice stating the re-examination dates for Combined Graduate Level Tier-II 2017.
As per the official notification;
“The Commission is conducting a re-examination for Paper-I (Quantitative Ability) of the candidates who had appeared in the CGL (Tier-II) Examination 2017 across the country and Paper-I (Quantitative Ability) & Paper-II (English) of the candidates who had appeared at Cyber City, Patna, on 21.2.2018. This re-examination is scheduled to be held on 9.3.2018.”
So, the SSC CGL Tier II RE-Examination 2017 is scheduled to be held on 9 March 2018.
Candidates who appeared for the exam at Animate Infotech, Mohan Cooperative Industrial Estate, New Delhi on 17 February 2018 had sent representations to the Commission stating that they were not involved with the students who disrupted Paper II. They requested the commission to consider their request for re-exam in Paper II.
Candidates who appeared in paper I of the exam at Nirman Infotech, Chandigarh on 17 February 2018 also sent representations for re-examination stating that due to short circuit in the computer lab they were unable to complete the paper. The commission did due verification and after finding them true, Paper I for the venue was cancelled.
Thus, after looking into both the matters, this is what the commission decided;
“The Commission, after taking a considered view in the aforesaid matters, in the interest of the bona fide candidates, has decided to allow the affected 318 candidates of Animate Infotech, Mohan Cooperative Industrial Estate, New Delhi and 156 affected candidates of Nirman Infotech, Chandigarh, to re-appear in PaperII and Paper-I, respectively, on 9.3.2018.”
CBI Investigation on SSC Paper Leak
The Central Government has ordered a CBI investigation into the alleged paper leak in the SSC CGL exam held last month.
In this regard, the Union Home Minister Rajnath Singh said; "We have accepted the demands of protesting candidates and have given orders for a CBI inquiry. The protests should stop now."
SSC aspirants were on a protest since 27 February outside SSC office in New Delhi seeking a CBI probe into the paper leak matter. A petition was also filed in the Supreme Court for the same.
