The Staff Selection Commission has recently notified a number of changes in the examination pattern of its flagship combined graduate level exam for 2016. Apart from reducing the number of questions in tier I and introducing a descriptive paper in tier III of the exam, the most prominent change that has been implemented is the introduction of online examination in both tier I and tier II whereas the descriptive paper will be conducted in pen and paper mode. It has been a long demand from many candidates that the exam should be made online just like IBPS exams since that is more fair and transparent. But there is the other side of the coin too. We shall try to make an evaluation of the pros and cons of the newly introduced online exam system in SSC CGL
SSC CGL: Online Exam is a step to transparency
As the SSC CGL exam will be online from this year, let us see what the few good things about it are as the fates of lakhs of candidates depend on the result of this examination.

SSC CGL Online: Is India Ready for the challenge?
Though many have welcomed the move to conduct this examination online from 2016, there are apprehensions as well regarding the success of implementing this scheme.
SSC is trying to conduct CGL in a way that will ensure that the whole process is fair and transparent. At the same time, it is trying to reduce the total time taken to finish the whole process of the examination that is well over one year for now. Introducing an online exam is one way to achieve this desired result, but at the same time, it needs to be kept in mind that online exam is the not the panacea for everything, better administrative handling and sincerity is also required. This is a step in sync with the Digital India programme launched by the PM, however it is to be seen whether SSC will be able to pull it off properly
