Most Popular SSC CGL Posts

Every year, at the time of SSC CGL form filling process, students are confused about selection of posts to make their preference list. To address their confusion, we have prepared a list of 10 most popular posts offered in SSC CGL exam. You can easily include them into top posts of your preference list after analyzing various factors about these posts.

There is one addition here if AAO (Assistant Audit Officer) post is offered in SSC CGL 2017 as well. In that situation AAO would be No. 1 post in my opinion. Because, it is the post with the highest salary among all SSC CGL posts along with the gazetted officer status.

    • Except Assistant in ministry posts all the other posts/departments/organisations have offices all around the country so they are all good for home posting. But there are more chances in big departments like Income Tax, Central Excise and CAG.

      Thanks and best luck.

  1. eligibility criteria of SSC cgl AAO and Finance and economics paper must be passed or total overall merit present mains finance essay formed by commission

    • Can’t understand your question but you are supposed to fulfill all the eligibility requirements to qualify for any job.

      Best wishes for your career.

    • OA (One Arm), OL (One Leg), BL (Both Leg), OAL (One Arm and one Leg), HH (Hearing Handicapped) Physical Disabilities are permissible for this post but no mention of Low Vision (LV) disability so I believe you can’t apply for this post but you can apply for some other posts. Like all Assistant posts accept candidates with LV so you can try for them. Read official notification and visit official site of SSC and concerned department to know more about this.

      Thanks and best wishes for your career.

    • Read official notification of the exam you want to apply for. Posts for which LV or color blindness is permitted, you’ll be eligible for that.

      Thanks and best wishes for your career.
