Computer Proficiency Test (CPT)


CPT Exam consists of 3 Sections:

1. Word Processing - 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. One has to type 2000 characters (depressions) in 15minutes. 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 2000 characters in 15minutes. This is checked against how many mistakes you make in typing. Only a certain percent of mistakes are allowed. See cut-offs here.

2. Spreadsheets - Candidates are required to work on Microsoft Excel software and create a spreadsheet as they provide in a printed sheet. Some things will have to be calculated using formulas of MS Excel like profits, percentages etc.. Only simple formulas are needed but one must have a basic understanding of MS Excel here. Time of 15minutes will be given. Version 2007 was used in my CPT attended in Delhi (in 2013).

3. Generation of slides - A printed sheet showing a print-out of a single slide will be given. Candidates will have to create a slide similar to the one given in Microsoft Powerpoint. Knowledge of header, footer, inserting date/time and file address will be required. Time of 15minutes will be given. Version 2007 was used in my CPT attended in Delhi (in 2013).

  • Computer will be provided by SSC Exam Invigilator/Staff. You are not allowed to bring your own Computer keyboard.
  • There is no exemption of CPT for any category of PH candidates.
  • CPT is of qualifying nature. Marks obtained here will not be counted in merit but if you do not pass you will not get CSS post.

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.
