Note - For CSS and PPSC Candidates

It has been noticed that candidates appearing at the Federal Public Service Commission examination are very desirous to know the following practical aspects of the Federal Public Service Commission viva-voce examination.
  • The weight of the psychological report
  • Whether the Members have the written marks of the candidate in front of them while interviewing the candidates
  • How does the FPSC mark the candidates in their interviews
Several other questions like these are asked by such candidates from those who have already taken chance and have succeeded. Although information of such questions is not important to get high marks in the Federal Public Service Commission interview, however, it will be helpful for the candidates.
