  1. In my cgl tier 2 mains admit card statistical investigator exam is on 11th April. But i don't have the required eligibility criteria for the required post. Can I skip the Statistical Investigator exam and give exams for paper 1 and paper 2 only.

  2. Same question from my side. Still looking for an answer.

  3. "Paper-III is mandatory for selection to the post of Statistical Investigator/Compiler." Seems that it is not mandatory to give for other posts.
