If SSC CGL doesn’t allow the students to take the question paper after the exam, then how can the previous year question papers be present online with the exact wording?
J
jaya garg

Hi Dhruv. This is not true as SSC allow the test takers to take the question paper post giving the exam. But now these exams are conducted online, so there is no scope to take the question paper with you.

However, SSC declares the answer key along with all the questions post 8-10 days of conducting the exam.
