Exams Like SSC CGL, CHSL, MTS Steno etc are some of the regular exams conducted by SSC, however, SSC also conducts exams for various posts, that are referred to it by Recruitment Agencies. In 2011, SSC does the Recruitment of Scientific Assistants for Meteorological Department and In 2013, SSC does the hiring of Assistant Grade III for Food Corporation of India.

In 2017 Meteorological Department has again referred the posts of Scientific Assistants to SSC and those missed the previous recruitment of Meteorological Department can now apply for SSC Scientific Assistant Recruitment 2017.
