Facts You Must Know About the Paper 1 Exam

  • The question paper will be available in both languages Hindi and English except the ‘ English ‘ portion .
  • Only those candidates who qualify the Paper 1 exam, will be forwarded to the Paper 2 exam .
  • However, there is no qualify standard in each part of the paper 1 but SSC has the right to do this .

Paper 2.

Newly added descriptive type exam will be conducted for the candidates who qualify the Paper 1 exam ( as per commission’s standards ) . In this paper, you have to write an essay or letter in two languages; English & Hindi .
