100 Screening test for CSS exam

ISLAMABAD, (APP): Special Assistant to the Prime Minister on Establishment, Mohammad Shehzad Arbab has said that the screening test for Central Superior Service (CSS) Competitive Exam 2022 would be held in February next year.

Talking to APP, he said that MCQs (Multiple Choice Questions) based Preliminary Test (MPT) prior to main written examination of CSS was accorded approval by the Federal Cabinet in its last meeting.

The SAPM said the screening test was aimed at filtering the serious candidates for the CSS written exam.

It would prove to be a ‘win-win’ not only for the FPSC but also for the candidates by saving the time of FPSC, as well as, students.

He said the initiative would reduce the CSS recruitment process from 20 months to 12 months, enabling FPSC to effectively select highly motivated candidates for the main CSS exam.

Shehzad said the screening test before competitive examinations were being practiced all over the world. The test did not take into account the domain-specific knowledge required to perform in various groups.

He said the matter was earlier considered in the Cabinet meeting held on December 10, 2019, wherein the proposal for the introduction of screening test prior to the written exam was not approved.
