Candidates who participated in the SSC CGL Tier I Examination 2023 are demanding a reevaluation of the results, accusing the Commission of reducing the number of candidates advancing to the next stage despite an increased number of vacancies this year.
The Staff Selection Commission conducted the CGL Tier-I exam from July 14 to 27, 2023, at various centres across India. The results were declared on September 20, revealing that 81,752 candidates have been selected for the Tier-II examination, scheduled for October 25, 26, and 27, 2023.
Expressing their dissatisfaction, SSC CGL aspirants took to social media platforms, including X (formerly Twitter), to voice their concerns. They argue that this year’s qualification rate for the Tier II examination is considerably lower compared to previous years.
Take a look:
Staff Selection Commission should have been consistent with the number of candidates selected. Many candidates are brilliant they just didn’t think that the cut-off for a stage, qualifying in nature, would spike up like this. @DoPTGoI @narendramodi pic.twitter.com/zoKLFJ6rHY

One X user shared statistics from SSC CGL Tier I results in recent years, remarking, “Staff Selection Commission should have maintained consistency in the number of candidates selected. Many deserving candidates may have missed the cut-off for this qualifying stage, which unexpectedly spiked.”
Another user on X commented, “An 8.5 times cut-off is exceptionally low, in fact, the lowest in SSC exams to date. Please consider the plight of the students.”
