Just a general point - please, do not join the civil service if you are not a scholar. I know different people have different career interests, and some just want a stable job with decent income, so can focus on other interests outside of work.

But please think very carefully if this is the path you want to take. At least try more years in the pte sector first and discover your real interest. If you really have no interests out there and have some interest in public policy, then do join the cs.

In cs, the scholars rule. And the system/culture is as such that every 2 years, they rotate heads/DDs around for posting, and most do not have prior experience handing the work of the specific ministry. The result of this is that the heads/DD, who are usually career-minded, will push the sh!t work to the juniors, who would have to find solutions. For scholar juniors, it is a batism of fire and they know that they just have to work around 2 years, get A grade and move on and promote. The non-scholars have to content with Bs/Cs and nope, your progression will be very slow, despite the long hours (yes, in certain depts in CS, there may be longer hours than pte sector).

Please respect yourself. I seen quite a few non-scholars with much potential. But due to the culture in the cs, they became content after a few years staying at a relatively junior level in exchange for the stability/decent pay, and couldn't move out to pte sector due to fear of change or just don't have the relevant skillsets. Partly, this is due to the lack of exposure and they don't know whats out there, given that many joined straight out of university. Thus, they lack the worldview and are just bureaucrats.

If you are still young and not a scholar, try something out there and discover your interests, and mind less about the pay first.

Please don't believe the bs the govt is sprouting about focusing less on grades. This isn't so in the cs - the culture is elitist and the way things are going, it will always be so.

But don't get me wrong - some scholars are indeed very good and serve with passion; however for some, they got to their position due solely to their scholarship status - the second order effects this brings is the confidence and motivation to push hard by virtue of that status. Mostly, I don't see any special ability/intellect beyond the academic credentials get them that scholarship earlier in their lives.

Just my quick thoughts on this early Sunday morning. These are just my own opinions, formed with my own experiences.
Agree to a certain extent. The CS culture is not dynamic enough for people to be versatile.

Applying to jobs at mid career still requires us to fill in O / A level results and university grades.

Many people do not mind as it offers more stability.

This is not normal. This is the fastest possible path already and is same speed as scholars. All those previous posters abt been promoted yearly is clearly rubbish. Civil service do not allow for yearly promotion at least under MX scheme.

How much is your salary currently?

Exactly. What has an applicant's O/A level results got to do with what he did later on in life? Why do applicants have to fill in what he got at each subject?
