Staff Selection Commission (SSC) is planning to conduct the Examinations online. This suggestion of SSC is being reviewed by the Department of Personnel and Training (DoPT).

Expert group constituted by the department of personnel and training (DoPT) on 13 February under the chairmanship of former UPSC member I M G Khan, in its report has made several recommendations for improvement in the current SSC examination system, including making it online.

The working group on national screening test & technology has recommended that online exam be introduced immediately, apart from compulsory online registration (with a delayed start for the northeast region) and web and mobile app-based application system.

Group also recommended that SSC must exercise control over examination technology environment such as data centres, servers and workstations.

For the marking system, mandatory negative marking has been suggested, apart from normalization of score. Besides, to ensure transparency, uploading of marks, result, question papers, scanned answer papers and answer keys is recommended.

On Central Armed Police forces (CAPFs), the working group suggested that SSC should not conduct examination for posts for which academic qualification is less than 10+2.

The group also suggested that technology be used to increase transparency in recruitment through inclusion of biometrics at every stage, digital height-weight-chest measurement with webcam display, CCTV recording of events and online validation of data, etc.


Important points:

  1. SSC may conduct exams online
  2. Decision is yet to be cleared by the Department of Personnel and Training (DoPT)
  3. Apart from examination system, marking and other modifications will also be executed in the examination pattern
