    Dear Student,

    It is difficult to predict or expect about the SSC CHSL 2021 exam due to the ongoing situation in the country. Once the 2019 recruitment process completes fully, a notification may be released for 2020, and the exam may take place in 2021. The notification will be released only if vacancies are available.
