If a candidate is found using unfair means in the examination he/she will be disqualified from the exam. UFM will lead you to Zero Marks in the paper irrespective of how well the examination is attended.

  • As per the UFM rule of SSC, any candidate who uses “real or imaginary” names in the answer sheet will be disqualified. Revealing identity is strictly prohibited exams conducted by the SSC.
  • If a candidate does not stick to the format of the letter and mentions the address of the receiver in case of an informal letter or adding irrelevant personal information to the letter, in that case, the candidate will be awarded zero marks.
  • If a candidate writes his/her name anywhere on the answer sheet or by mistake you sign at the invigilator’s column, then, in that case his/her answer sheet will not be evaluated and will be awarded zero marks.
  • Candidate cannot write any real or imaginary phone number, address in the copy.

  • Writing unnecessary information other than mentioned in the paper will lead to zero marks. For example, if there is an address is given like Ravi, a resident of Noida.

  • Not filling the important things such as Roll no., sign, left thumb impression also comes under UFM.
  • While writing an essay, if a candidate crosses the word limit by 10% then this may lead to loss of marks.
