It is released few days after the exam. Unofficial answer key is published by individual education experts. It is released generally a few hours after the exam. Both the answer keys may differ for some answers.

This year, SSC CGL 2016 Tier I is held in online mode and thus it made it quite difficult for individual education experts to release the answer key.
