Hello Friends,


The Staff Selection Commission has successfully completed the conduct of
Combined Graduate Level Examination (Tier-I)-2016 in Computer Based
Mode of Examination from 27.8.2016 to 11.9.2016. This examination was
conducted at Srinagar on 25.9.2016. Out of 38.04 lakh registered
candidates, about 14.99 lakh candidates in 44 Batches actually appeared
in the Examination in 96 Cities across the country.

entire examination made by certain vested interests is absolutely flawed
and misplaced. It is, therefore, unfortunate that certain vested interests
are working overtime to mislead the candidates in particular and the
general public at large, in an attempt to bring disrepute to the

4. The Commission assures all candidates of its best services and also
stands by its commitment made to the candidates to declare the final
result of CGLE-2016 by the end of April 2017 ( i.e. in a record time of
eight months from the date of the Tier-I Exam which commenced on 27th
August 2016).
