Candidate Criteria for the SSC CHSL 2022 Examination:

Nationality requirement: Applicants for SSC CHSL must be an Indian citizen, a subject of Bhutan, a subject of Nepal, a Tibetan refugee (who arrived in India before January 1, 1962), or a person of Indian origin (who has migrated from Pakistan, Burma, Sri Lanka, East African countries, Vietnam, or other countries) to set a permanent residence in India.

If an applicant is not an Indian citizen, he or she must have a certificate of eligibility issued by the Indian government in his or her favor; otherwise, the offer of appointment will be withdrawn.

Age Limit: Applicants born not before 2nd January 1995 and not later than 1st January 2004 are eligible to apply for the SSC Combined Higher Secondary Level Exam. The SSC CHSL age limit for the posts has been set at a minimum of 18 years and a maximum of 27 years as of 1st February 2022, i.e. applicants born not before 2nd January 1995 and not later than 1st January 2004 are eligible to apply for the SSC Combined Higher Secondary Level Exam.

Educational Qualifications for the SSC CHSL 2022 Examination:

Applicants must have completed their 12th grade or have passed an equivalent exam from a recognized board or university.

Unlike SSC-CGL, this one is conducted in three phases i.e. Tier I, Tier II & Tier III respectively but on a lower level.

Tier 1Objective MCQsComputer-based
Tier 2Descriptive paper in Hindi/EnglishPen and paper mode

Various Posts in the SSC CHSL 2022:

The qualified candidates after a computer-based test, descriptive paper test, a skills test, and typing test are appointed to serve on various posts like,

  1. Lower Division Clerk
  2. Junior Secretariat Assistant
  3. Postal Assistant
  4. Sorting Assistant
  5. Data entry operator

Coming to the examination pattern, even if it is conducted at an easier level, being a competitive one, it is very tricky and can cause a major loss if not prepared accordingly.  All the key elements i.e, time management, clear concepts, rigorous practice, and loads of revision are very important.

Choosing the right books can be the biggest perk or the worst loss. So, wisely opting for them is another biggest task before the preparation phase.

Below we’ve provided some of the best preferred and recommended books for the subjects to ease your burden and boost your hard work from the greatest scholars and the topper themselves.
