SSC Exam Calendar 2016 has already been published, which gives you the schedule of dates (Notification, Form submission and Exam dates) for all the exams conducted by Staff Selection Commission (SSC). This article has been posted to provide you the SSC Exam Calendar 2016, so that you can schedule your preparation for the exam accordingly.
This SSC Exam Calendar provides you the schedule of MOST the SSC Exams, though not all. It is because, besides the regular exams which are conducted by SSC every year (e.g. CGL Exam, CHSL Exam, MTS exams etc.), it also conducts some exam which are not a part of the regular exam calendar. These are conducted mostly for some specific organizations e.g. FCI, Prasar Bharati etc. The notifications for these exams are published as and when the need of the organization occurs. SSC conducts these exams on behalf of these organisations.
Hence although you can get the schedule of SSC exams every year from beforehand, you have to keep visiting the SSC official website from time to time to know about such job opportunities. This blog also updates you with each SSC exam notification and hence you should keep visiting it for exam notification updates.
Next thing to note in the SSC Exam Calendar is the time span between date of notification and the date of exam. This is the time that you would get to prepare for the exam (i.e. if you had not started your preparation from beforehand). For example, the advertisement (i.e. exam notification) date of CGL Exam 2016 (Tier-I) is 13th February 2016 and the exam is going to be held on 8th & 22nd May 2016. You therefore have 3 months of time in between. So you can schedule your preparation for the exam accordingly.
Another thing to note is the time difference between two Tiers of SSC CGL Exam. CGL Exam 2016 (Tier-I) is going to be held on 8th & 22nd May 2016 while CGL Exam 2016 (Tier-II) is going to be held on 13th & 14th August 2016. There are at least three months in between. Hence you can start your preparation for CGL Tier-II exam after you appear in the CGL Tier-I EXAM.

At the end of this article, let me tell you another important thing about SSC Exam Calendar 2016 – although SSC tries to conduct the exams as per the calendar, in many cases the exams are postponed – mostly because of exam paper leaks. For example, SSC MTS Exam – 2015 was supposed to be conducted on 7th,14th & 21st February, 2016. But however the same would not be held now.
Therefore, you should keep visiting this blog more frequently to find such exam dates in the SSC Exam News Section.
