CSS 2023 Exam Results: Only 3.06% Candidates Clear Written Test

The Federal Public Service Commission (FPSC) released the results for the written segment of the Central Superior Services (CSS) Competitive Examination-2023, disclosing a mere 3.06% success rate. Out of the vast pool of 13,008 aspirants, only 398 managed to clear the test.

This figure might appear meager, but it marks an increment from the previous year. The 2022 CSS exam witnessed an even more tough pass percentage of just 1.94%.

The entire application tally stood at a robust 28,024 hopefuls, out of which nearly half took the plunge and appeared for this highly desired exam.

Those who emerged victorious in this initial written contest aren't in the clear yet. The FPSC will soon reveal the schedule for their following rounds, which include a medical examination, psychological appraisal, and the decisive viva voce interviews. Candidates are urged to keep an eagle eye on the FPSC's official website to remain abreast of crucial updates and information linked to the upcoming stages of the CSS selection process.

However, not all news was optimistic. The Commission, in adherence to the CSS Competitive Examination Rules of 2019, particularly Rule 16(6), has chosen to withhold the results of those candidates considered "rejected".

The FPSC, while announcing the results, also issued a clause of caution. It highlighted that the Commission holds the right to correct any uninteded differences or oversights in the disclosed results whenever they come to light.

Adding a fresh twist this year, the FPSC has indicated the advent of the Special CSS Competitive Examination 2023 (MPT). Slated between October 12 and 20, 2023, this special iteration mandates candidates to first conquer a screening test grounded in Multiple-Choice Questions (MCQs) to even be considered eligible for it.

Such announcements from FPSC underscore the rigorous and demanding nature of the CSS exam process, reinforcing its reputation as one of Pakistan's most challenging competitive examinations.
