By Tier -III what comes to our mind is- Interview/Computer Proficiency Test/ Skill Test /Document Verification. To your surprise, the commission has added one more item to the list of Tier -III, that is a DESCRIPTIVE PAPER.
There will be minimum passing marks for this test and its score will not be added into total marks of a candidate. All candidates (interview post, non-interview post and tax assistant) will be subjected to this.

Commission may also decide to take this test online. I have a sneaky feeling that purpose of this test is to catch the fraud/cheating/malpractice cases. The paper will be very easy.
Here is the exact wording of SSC in notice dated 19-01-2013.

Candidates qualifying in Tier-II of the Examination, for Computer Proficiency Test and Interview for posts of Assistant in CSS, Interview for other Interview posts, Data Entry Skill Test for posts of Tax Assistant and document verification for other non-interview posts, will be subjected to a short descriptive paper/online test of not more than one hour?s duration, with questions drawn from “English Language and Comprehension”, “Quantitative Abilities” and “General Awareness”. The examination will be qualifying in nature and will not be taken into account for determining the position of the candidates in merit order.

SSC will give more details about this test once they declare results of Tier -II.
Stay tuned, we will keep you updated.
