Zoha Malik is the 5th Sister in Her Family to Pass the CSS Exams

A Khyber Pakhtunkhwa (KP) family has created a unique record in the history of the Civil Superior Services (CSS) examination.

The CSS 2019 result was announced on Thursday, according to which, a total of 23,234 candidates applied, but only 14,521 appeared in the examination. Out of them, only 372 candidates could pass the exam.

Zoha Malik Sher was one of the lucky ones.

Hailing from Khyber Pakhtunkhwa, and living in Islamabad, four of the Sher sisters have previously passed the top competitive exam and are already serving in different government departments.

The eldest sister Laila Malik Sher passed CSS in 2008. She is now serving as a Deputy Commissioner (IR) Regional Tax Office in Islamabad. Shireen Malik Sher cleared the examination in 2010. She is currently the Head of Section in the Cabinet Division.

Besides, Sassi and Marvi joined civil services in 2017. While Dr. Sassi Malik Sher joined the MLCG group, Marvi is posted in the PMS group.

The youngest of the lot, Zoha Malik Sher, was the latest to join the CSS Sisters Club. She was among the 2.5 percent CSS aspirant that cleared the examination this year.


  • We Pakistani’s are still not able to bring the colonial subservient mindset out of our minds. In 21st century we still think British Raj civil services are better than entrepreneurship, tech and research….

  • Congratulate to zoha malik sher and her family…this is the achievment of all pakistani girls and women..we proud so much..Allah zoha malik ko humshe isi tarha or b success mily or khushya..Ameen

  • I don’t know why our people are so crazy about Government jobs and specially CSS. I don’t find any charm in giving away my freedom to someone for rest of my life…
