Computer-based written exams for 16 middle-management positions of the Ministry of Communications and Information Technology were held in the Examinations Center of the Independent Administrative Reform and Civil Service Commission.
This is the first time that the exams for a government agency’s middle-management positions are computer based. Before this, the Independent Administrative Reform and Civil Service Commission had started the computer-based examinations for the high-level positions of government agencies.
Computer-based examinations for middle-management positions would help government agencies with the transparency of the examination processes.
83 applicants competed for the following positions of the Ministry of Communications and Information Technology: Recruitment Department, Post Offices Department, Internal Audit Department, Head of Contract Facilitations and Planning, General Manager of Planning and Reporting, General Department of Staff Background Database, General Department of Structure and Planning, Construction Projects Inspection Engineer, General Department of Cyber Monitoring, Head of Construction Procurement and Consultative Services, ICT Affairs Expert, Capacity Building Instructor, General Manager of Resolutions’ Pursuance, Professional Member of Projects Monitoring and ITU International Communications Associations Expert.
Participants of the exam were pleased that the exams were computer-based.
Khalil Ahmad Nikzad, a candidate for Construction Procurement and Consultative Services position, says: “a process in which the human interference is minimized is surely great.”
Hamid, one of the candidates, after he received his computer-based written exam’s result, says: “it is the first time that I have passed the written exam and have proceeded to the oral exam, it gives me hope for a better future.”
The Independent Administrative Reform and Civil Service Commission plans to establish eight Examination Centers for computer-based exams, in eight zones of the country, during this year.
