THIS is with reference to the announcement made by the Federal Public Service Commission, introducing screening test as a prerequisite before appearing in CSS examinations 2014.

The test, according to the FPSC website, will be based on multiple choice questions carrying 200 marks and will comprise English vocabulary and grammar, general abilities, general knowledge and Islamiat. The time allowed for this test is three hours.

In my opinion, it is a positive step taken by the FPSC, keeping in view the growing number of aspirants applying for the CSS examinations. One can say so because this test would help filter out only potential candidates eligible for appearing in the examinations.

This will also reduce the pains of the examiner as he would get comparatively a small number of answer copies for checking and spend as much time as is required to examine a single answer book. Thus ensuring full merit in letter and in spirit.
