SSC will also lay down proportion of marks for Theory and Skills Practical for each PC.
2. The assessment for the theory part will be based on knowledge bank of questions created by the SSC.

3. Assessment will be conducted for all compulsory NOS, and where applicable, on the selected elective/option NOS/set of NOS.
4. Individual assessment agencies will create unique question papers for theory part for each candidate

at each examination/training centre (as per assessment criteria below).
5. Individual assessment agencies will create unique evaluations for skill practical for every student at each

examination/training centre based on this criterion.
6. To pass the Qualification Pack, every trainee should score a minimum of 60% of

aggregate marks to successfully clear the assessment.
7. In case of unsuccessful completion, the trainee may seek reassessment on the Qualification Pack.
