The SSC holds CHSL to fill the vacancies of lower divisional clerk or junior secretariat assistant, postal assistant, sorting assistant, data entry operators who submit details of various departments or departments or offices of the Government of India.
To qualify for these, candidates must have a tier-I, an explanatory paper, a competency test, or a type test. Only those who cancel the tier-I test will qualify for the next round. An online computer-based test consists of a type of objective, multiple choice questions. For every wrong answer, students lose 0.50 marks and for every correct answer, they are given two marks.
