Subsequently, the Commission conducted the Tier-II of the Combined Graduate Level Examination, 2022 in Computer-Based Mode from March 2, 2023, to March 7, 2023.
Candidates who have appeared in Tier-II examination are required to submit their Option-cum-Preference(s) for post(s)/ department(s) before the final result is declared.

This option will be available from 27.04.2023 to 01.05.2023, and candidates are advised to submit their preferences during this period.
It is important for candidates to note that the Option-cum-Preference(s) can only be revised during the aforementioned period, and the Option-cum-Preference(s) that the candidate last submitted will be considered final.

If a PwBD candidate is selected for a post that is not identified as suitable for their disabilities, their candidature will be canceled by the User Department concerned.
It is reiterated that the candidates will not be provided any further opportunity for the exercise of Option-cum-Preference beyond the dates mentioned above. Any grievance received in this regard in any form like Post, Fax, Email, by hand, etc. shall not be entertained by the Commission and will be summarily rejected.
