*** Regarding Scaling, Normalisation & Equalisation in SSC Exams
Some dissatisfied candidates are saying that there should be scaling process in SSC exams; All are saying that level of exam of their region was tougher than other region & some are fighting & abusing other Region candidates other bullshit like this.
SSC does not follow any scaling rule & may be it will not introduce any scaling in SSC CGL 2014, as process of CGL 2014 is in half way. And most relevant truth is everybody finds others paper easy as they have not any exam pressure of solving paper against time while checking other region.
