Validity:

 SSC CGL is conducted twice a year. The main idea of conducting it twice is to give the candidates an opportunity to improve their scores if they feel the marks they obtained are not good enough to compete with others and they want to give one more chance. Within 1 year whichever score candidates feel good can adopt it. There is no compulsion to use scorecard only from the recent exam.

If the candidate has two scorecard & both are within 12 months validity period, they can use any of both.
