The Staff Selection Commission (SSC) has declared the much-delayed Combined Graduate Level (CGL) Tier-I results 2016 on Tuesday. It was earlier reported that the results would be announced on October 7 but was postponed over some issues.

The commission conducted a re-examination for one Shift, i.e., the Second Shift (Batch-II) of the CGLE Tier-I which was held at 4.15 pm – 5.30 pm on August 27, 2016, citing administrative reasons. This led to the delay in the declaration of SSC CGL Tier-I results 2016.

About 14.99 lakh out of 38.04 lakh candidates, who registered for the examination, appeared for the exam. Those who pass the Tier-1 will have to write CGL Tier-II examination to be held tentatively between November 30 and December 2.
