“The CSS examination is one of life’s most gratifying experiences. Regardless of your results, studying for this difficult exam will expose you to new knowledge that will benefit you in real-world situations. The CSS is a great chance to acquire specialized skills as well as decision-making and leadership skills”, said Taha Saleem, Deputy Commissioner & Administrator of District Central, Karachi. He was speaking to the students at a special guest lecture “Importance of CSS exam”, organized by Ziauddin University (ZU).

While sharing his journey during the lecture with students he said “It wasn’t a simple path for me; at the time, people used to think that CSS was just about the source system (parchi system), so it wasn’t easy. Believe me CSS is one of the very few examinations in Pakistan where we get 99 percent meritocracy”.

Taha Saleem further added that there were many different aspects of my assignment that I like, so choosing a career was difficult. However, I think this is the one potential that should be investigated. In my opinion, there are just these options available if you want to make decisions that will change or benefit our nation. If you join the civil service, only you have the power to make choices that have a significant impact on your community. That is the influence that civil service has. We have arranged (CSS Corner) Free of Cost CSS Classes by CSP officers & Professionals to guide students who are willing to prepare for CSS exams.

In the concluding remarks Vice Chancellor of Ziauddin University, Prof Dr Irfan Hyder said that Appearing in the CSS exam is an extremely rewarding experience in one’s life. Success and failure aside, preparing for this most challenging examination will open new fields of learning which will help you in your practical life. I am sure that this lecture has piqued the interest of all attendees sitting here today.
