When and Why did SSC Scam Start?

On 21st of February 2018, SSC Released an Official Notice apologizing for the technical failure which caused the delay of Quantitative Aptitude Exam. SSC Quants Exam was supposed to take place on 21st February 2018 but due to this technical failure, SSC had to cancel the exam. The Commission after consulting with all the regional offices decided to re-conduct the Quantitative Exam on 9th March 2018.

As soon as the notice came out, there was an outrage among all the students. various videos & messages started circulating on social media which indicated that some questions got leaked.This led to the speculation among candidates that cheating took place in some exam centers. Which eventually led to the cancellation of the Quantitative Aptitude Exam.

The outrage was seen in various formats like Twitter Comments & Protests. Take a look at various tweets by angry students and protests. Many students are even tweeting to the Prime Minister of India to look into this matter. Candidates are also demanding CBI inquiry over these repeated mistakes from SSC’s part.

What are the Immediate Demands of SSC Scam Protesters?

  • Change the Vendor: There are many instances where SSC itself declared that due to technical issues this/that problem occurred. Sometimes even marked answers get unmarked and prefilled answers in some centers.
  • CBI Inquiry: It is most important to know the root cause and people involved in this scam. As per the current method, only small fishes are getting caught, but we want whales.
  • Normalisation: Students want normalisation in all SSC Exams if the exam has to be conducted in multiple days/shifts.
  • Reserve List: From past many years it is seen that many candidates do not join the department and the seat remains vacant. They demand that SSC should also create a reserve list, in case the candidate fails to join a department.
  • Representation List: In each of the exams conducted by SSC there are many wrong answers and SSC Official Answer Keys. SSC Charges Rs. 100 to challenge the SSC Key. They want that if the challenge is correct then Rs. 100 should be refunded back to them.
  • Descriptive Paper: They want the descriptive paper to be of qualifying nature as the evaluation involves human calculation so it can be biased.
