The recent CSS results were shocking. The percentage of students who passed was 2.09, which is the lowest ever. The result indicates that there is a marked deterioration in the standard of education. This does not bode well for our future generations. I personally believe that the examiners have been very strict in awarding marks. If we as a nation want to have a better class of bureaucrats in the country, we must invest in better education to facilitate them.
