The government has taken the decision of reducing the age limit for the CSS examinations from 30 years to 28 years, whereas the age limit for the government employees has also been decreased from 32 years to 28 years, as per the reports of local media on Wednesday.
As per the reports, the Civil Superior Services—CSS would be renamed as the Central Services of Pakistan and the difference between the social science and pure science candidates would also be decreased.
The government has also proposed to include the percentile score system for providing equal opportunities to the students, while removing quota for the candidates from the backward areas, as per the report.
The report also indicated that a special quota would be set up on the basis of the educational background instead.
CSS is one such exam that every Pakistani student aspires to give in order to obtain jobs in the government sector. These jobs are highly ranked and valued within the country.
For passing CSS examinations it takes huge time and efforts investment. Every year many Pakistani students apply for this exam and only a few among them get selected for further training and jobs.
