CSS English paper

Liaquat Ali Sheikh

The Federal Public Service Commission every year conducts examination of Central Superior Services (CSS). In recent past years the policy of hostile marking approach and change of syllabus by the commission has been condemned by the candidates. This year too the commission brought about some changes in the examination format, introduced a new schedule for all compulsory and optional papers according to revised syllabus. The candidates therefore, prepared themselves according to the revised syllabus. It is a matter of grave concern and dismay that the paper of English precise and composition was not according to the new syllabus and secondly instead of adopting fair marking approach, harsh marking policy was carried out in the paper, due to which many candidates failed in the paper for few marks, which hampered the way of out standing and talented candidates, who otherwise secured highest marks in other subjects. The most deserving candidates should not be punished for the mismanagement and failure of the Commission for not taking the composition paper as per their own prescribed syllabus.
My daughter got more then 736 marks which is remarkable achievement in written portion but failed in the composition paper by 8 marks only . Had she passed this paper, she would have contested for any position in the final results. This unfair approach of the commission has sent a wave of resentment, unrest and disappointment among the aspiring candidates. I, therefore, request the chairman FPSC to look into the matter sympathetically and re- issue the marks in the 2016 English composition paper I, to meet the ends of justice being lawful and rational demand of the candidates.
