My friend is Tamil Nadu SSLC passed. He intends to do a degree from TN Open University, without studying Higher Secondary. Is he eligible for SSC/RRB exams after he completes the said degree under Open Univ. scheme. Please guide us.
with out HSC , getting an admission in higher studies is impossible. Intermediate and Matric qualification is must for every candidate to go for higher studies which are career based. Candidates choose streams in which they can create and invest too. Without 10th score , no one can go to 12th. HSC is requirement to go SSC.
Hope it helps!
