Which exam is better, SSC or UPSC better?
J
jaya garg

Hi. The UPSC exam is a lot more important exam as compared to SSC. UPSC is older. Civil services have been there since British times. It has always been an exam for humanities subjects because they are better tools to recruit people rather than Math's in this field. But SSC is also a good exam. Based on your eligibility criteria, you can apply in any of the exams.
