The national exam for civil servants will announce the exact number of registered candidates later today. It closed the registration process on Saturday evening.
The candidates are expected to face a rather fierce competition this year as the competitive ratio for the most preferred position hits a high of 3000:1, according to latest data from the State Administration of Civil Service.
On Oct 14, the administration announced the recruitment plan for 2021. About 25,700 vacancies are open in 79 central agencies and 23 subsidiary institutions, rising from 24,000 vacancies for 2020.
The written exam will be held in late November after the administration finishes political review of the candidates.
