Excerpt from the Notice

(Para 17) 

(17) The marks obtained by the candidates in Tier I & Tier II, together, would determine the eligibility of the candidates to appear in Tier III & Tier IV.


General Instruction - Para (6) 

(6) The final merit of the successful candidates would be determined on the basis of total score obtained by them in Tier-I, Tier-II and Tier-III. 


This clarified the para "The final merit will be prepared on overall performance in Tier-I, Tier-II and Tier-III." of Revised Pattern of SSC CGL Notice dated 01-07-2016.


Former SSC Chairman Kannan Raghupathy's View :


Former SSC Chief K N Raghupahy says that There are court rulings that any decision to treat an examination qualifying in nature should be notified before the examination is held. Any decision thereafter may be construed as favoring the candidates who secure marks just adequate to meet the cut-off and may lead to court cases as violation of natural justice.

In the case of CGL 2016 Tier is finished and before conducting Tier 1, SSC in its Revised Notice dated 01-07-2016 along with 20-07-2016 Cleared that Tier 1 marks will be added. Now at this time it is impossible to make it qualifying as it will lead SSC into legal troubles.
