During the session of the National Assembly, the Establishment Division recently presented a comprehensive report that provides information about the applicants for the Central Superior Services (CSS) Examination 2019 to 2021.
According to the survey, 54.53 percent of the applicants faced difficulty in understanding Urdu, the official language of Pakistan, and failed miserably. It is interesting to note that in the last three years, the failure rate in Urdu has increased from 30 percent in 2019 to 73 percent in 2021.
When it comes to essay writing, the statistics were also unexpected. Only 45,800 out of 49,500 applicants were successful in this essay, which means that a staggering 98% of applicants failed the essay writing portion of the exam.
In fact, only 6% of applicants passed the essay section in 2019, 4% in 2020, and 13% in 2021.
In addition, the analysis shows that 73% of applicants failed the English language section in 2019, 39% did so in 2020, and a staggering 92% did so in 2021.
In 2019, 37 percent of applicants failed Pakistan Affairs, rising to 71 percent in 2020 and 46 percent in 2021. Similarly, 18 percent of candidates failed in Islamiat in 2019, it increased to 51 percent in 2020 and 81 percent in 2021.
The result clearly shows that CSS applicants have room for growth in multiple disciplines. This information should encourage future applicants to study hard and prepare for the exam.
