Union Civil Service Board (UCSB) Chairman Dr. Win Thein, accompanied by Yangon Region Minister for Agriculture, Livestock, Forest and Energy U Han Tun, Civil Service Selection and Training Department Director- General U Kyaw Soe and officials, inspected the conduct of the civil service entry-level officers second stage written test held at Landmadaw Basic Education High School No. (1) Yangon yesterday morning.
The 10 July 2017 guiding remarks of the State Counsellor, made at the launch of the Civil Service Reform Strategic Action Plan, called for recruiting the most qualified and best people for the civil service through a merit based system.
The Union Civil Service Board has since put in place a screening test, which includes Myanmar, English and general knowledge written tests, instead of the written test system which was used previously. This was done to meet two of the four priorities included in the Civil Service Reform Strategic Action Plan. The two priorities are priority no. 2 on Merit Based selection and promotion, and priority no. 4, to be responsible and transparent. An announcement was made by the Union Civil Service Board to select 480 officer positions for 11 ministries and departments, and a screening test was conducted on 16 December 2017.
The 2,493 who passed the screening test were to next take the second stage written tests. The second stage written tests were held in Nay Pyi Taw, Yangon, Mandalay, Magway and Mawlamyine test centers on 20 and 21 January, where 2,325 will be taking the test. — Myanmar News Agency
