What is the Central Superior Services Exam?
CSS stands for Central Superior Services of Pakistan. Aspirants/students from across the country appear in 11 different subjective/objective exams, in a bid to become the creme de la creme of the country. This exam brings forth the most elite and capable students from Pakistan who pledge their lives to serve Pakistan’s civil service.
This form of government is known as bureaucracy. These bureaucrats then join different caders/groups allocated in the Civil Service, which include some of the most powerful designations/departments such as the Pakistan Administrative Service (PAS), Pakistan Customs (PC), Foreign Service of Pakistan (FSP).
However, there are many other important groups in CSS as well that hold the same importance.
How can I register myself for the exam?
Every year, the FPSC brings out an advertisement for the CSS Exam, which requires a student to have at least his/her graduation done from a recognized university.
Along with the paid fee challan, students need to send their documents to the FPSC office in Islamabad, after uploading the soft copies on the FPSC website. Once you’ve successfully registered yourself, you are eligible to give the CSS exam.
Why is it so hard to clear the CSS Exam?
The CSS result 2019 proves that indeed, even now, the exam is the toughest nut to crack in the country. Since the perks and privilege that come with serving as a bureaucrat, the criteria is set very hard by the conveners of the exam.
Almost every year, 97% of people who appear for the exam fail miserably. The reason behind this is the tough criteria to clear the CSS exam. Every student needs to pass all 11 papers they appear in, while also collectively scoring an aggregate of 50%.
This means, out of 1200 marks, the students need to score at least 600 and clear all the subjects they appear in.
