SSC DEST (Skill Test in Data Entry)

SSC Skill Test in Data Entry (DEST)

SSC DEST Exam is for those canidates who are selected after SSC CGL Tier-2 for the post of Tax Assistant(TA).

This is exactly similar to Module 1 of Computer Proficiency Test(CPT) . The only exception is that SSC has clearly written that 2,000 depressions have to be made in 15minutes - this should be your minimum speed. Candidates are given a printed english passage that has to be typed in the computer. It is not exactly Microsoft Word but their own software. No formatting (bold, italics etc) is needed. Only typing has to be done.

This will not be a big deal if you practice on your computer. Microsoft Word can count characters as well, so you can create your test by typing in a newspaper article of approximately 2,000 characters in 15 minutes. This is checked against how many mistakes you make in typing. Only a certain percent of mistakes are allowed.

The test is qualifying in nature. If you don't qualify, you will not be considered for the job.

Exemption for PH candidates as per the Notifcaion Rules of the exam.
