SSC JE Junior Engineer  (Paper 2) 2018-19 selection Method

Selection Process

Candidates will be shortlisted and recommended for appointment by the Commission on the basis of their total marks in the Paper – I & II and preference for the posts.
Provided that SC, ST, OBC, and PH (PWD) candidates, who are selected on their own merit without relaxed standards, along with candidates belonging to other communities, will not be adjusted against the reserved share of vacancies. Such SC, ST, OBC, and PH(PWD) candidates will be accommodated against the general/unreserved vacancies as per their position in the overall Merit List. The reserved vacancies will be filled up separately from amongst the eligible SCs, STs, OBCs and PH(PWD) candidates which will thus comprise of SC, ST, OBC and PH(PWD) candidates who are lower in merit than the last general candidate on merit list of unreserved categories but otherwise found suitable for appointment even by relaxed standard.
