For those without good honors: All is not lost.

If you're just fresh out from school, every ministry has a large pool of candidates to select from. Those with less than stellar results are likely to get filtered out. Here are some creative tips to get noticed.
1) Gain relevant work experience
2) Actively seek out internship in the organisations that you're interested in.
3) Use social media. LinkedIn your potential bosses & colleagues.
4) Showcase your works & professional knowledge through blogs, microblogs, websites, professional forums etc.
5) Join volunteer networks organised by the respective agencies.
6) More ....[/QUOTE]

Most importantly, must have perseverance and patience. Personally, I know of 2 candidates (only pass degrees) managed to get their dream jobs after 1-3 years of attempts.

You mean it is almost impossible to enter civil service with a 3rd class honors or below?

It is too sweeping a statement to make. For some professions (eg engineering) they only accept (upper and above) honours unless the applicant has other relevant work experience or unique skill set. But for some other vocations, they do accept general degrees.

It is true that cs looks heavily into ur academic qualification to determine ur cep and progression. Even if u r a good performer in cs(without upper hons & abv), you will only get a good performance grade yr aft yr... You will not haf the career progression u desire...

As much as I would like to say the opposite, it is true that it's very very hard to enter civil service with 3rd class honors or below. But entering public sector is a different story. That means applying for jobs in stat boards and agencies under ministries.

You can try your luck there, and then hope to get posting to the ministries if you've good performance.

Is your 3 years experience relevant to the offer? Also, what % increment from your current salary? It's hard to justify whether the offer's ok with insufficient information.

Yes, the offer is realistic. A few years ago, I was offered the same amount and then, I had 1 more year of experience.
