FPSC clarifies report about CSS exam

ISLAMABAD: The Federal Public Service Commission (FPSC) has clarified that the rules for English essay and English (précis and composition) for Civil Superior Services (CSS) examination haven’t been changed.
Clarifying a media report, the Commission stated that exam rules for CSS-2018 have already been notified according to which it is mandatory to pass both the said papers as was in the last year. The Commission said a meeting of the Senate special committee constituted by Chairman Senate to look into the FPSC annual report 2015 was held last week and chaired by Senator Syed Muzaffar Hussain Shah. It was attended by the secretary FPSC and not by Naveed Akram Cheema, Chairman FPSC, as media reported.
Therefore, it said, the remarks attributed to Naveed Cheema are baseless. It was averred that FPSC is likely to propose changes in the curriculum of universities. It is to be noted that neither it is the mandate of the FPSC to propose changes in curriculum of the universities nor FPSC has proposed any such change in its annual report. The commission’s concern was highlighted only to improve the standard and quality of education.
Further, the statement that henceforth the Commission would aggregate the marks of English essay and English (précis & composition) are based on misconception. No such decision has been taken. Exam rules for CSS-2018 have already been notified according to which it is mandatory to pass both the said papers as was in the last year. True facts have not been presented in the report which is misleading. The version given in the media report is not correct. The FPSC website may be visited for authentic information, the clarification added.
