Federal Public Service Commission Wednesday announced that it won’t be holding the screen-out test it had announced for the central superior services examination 2014.
A public notice put on FPSC website on July 17, 2013, says, “due to some administrative reasons the Commission has decided not to hold CSS Screening Test this year.” CSS Competitive Examination 2014 will be held as per previous practice for which applications shall be invited in last week of September 2013 with closing date of 31.10.2013, it said.
The cut-off date for determining the eligibility of the candidates in terms of age, qualification, domicile, etc., shall be 31st December, 2013. The written examination commences on February 15, 2014.
The commission reportedly had to prepare for a re-test in Faisalabad and could not complete its preparations for the screening test. Some on social media said the govt. didn’t approve the measure, though.
However, the screening test would be introduced for CSS examination 2015, reports Dawn.
The screening test was being introduced to filter out the potential candidates among large number of applicants.
The screen-out test, when introduced, would also reduce the workload of examiners who would thus receive fewer answer copies to mark.
