Disappointing CSS results leaves the top recruiter scratching his head



The disappointing results of this year’s competitive exam for civil services (CSS) cast a pall over the education sector and left both students and top recruiter shell-shocked. So much so that the Federal Public Service Commission, which conducts the exam for Central Superior Services, or CSS, decided to diagnose the problem of this. In an attempt to identify any flaws and failures in the system, the FPSC will begin consulting with the Higher Education Commission (HEC) and academies.

In 2016, as many as 9,643 candidates sat the written test of CSS. Alarmingly however, only 202, or 2.09%, qualified, the rest of all failed the test. This is totally the lowest percentage of successful students since 2011.
