    Exam pattern for tier I, II, III, IV

    Tier-1: This is the first stage for CGLAspirants. It is the primary level of SSCCGL exam appearance, however, the candidates must not mistake it as an equivalent of thescreening test. It is because the score of the tier 1 SSCCGL is counted when the final merit list is prepared by the commission.

    Tier-1CGL is conducted online and is divided into four sections, each section containing 25 questions. The tier 1 CGL exam is for a total duration of one hour or 60 minutes.

    • General Intelligence and Reasoning: 25 Questions (50 Marks)
    • General Awareness: 25 Questions (50 Marks)
    • Quantitative Aptitude: 25 Questions (50 Marks)
    • English: 25 Questions (50 Marks)

    Tier-2:Candidates who score the qualifying marks in tier 1 CGL exam, will appear for the tier 2 of SSCCGL. This exam is also held online and has three papers. Paper 1 and Paper 2 are compulsory and Paper 2 is for Statistical Investigator Post applicants exclusively.
