JWT helped me a great deal in getting much-needed latest updates on national and international affairs that helped me get through the General Knowledge paper.
Jahangir’s World Times (JWT): First of all, please tell us about your educational background?
Osama Sharoon (OS): I am a law graduate and besides an LLB degree, I have earned a master’s degree in Political Science as well.
JWT: As everyone starts dreaming of a future career right from childhood, so what were your dreams? Did you always aspire to be a PMS Officer?
OS: Honestly speaking, I never aspired to become a civil servant. I was a professional cricketer and this game was like a passion to me. I have played cricket at regional, national and even international level for Pakistan U-19. But the fate had something different in store for me and in 2009, a couple of game-related injuries made me change my plans. Following in the footsteps of my father and my elder brothers, I got in touch with PMS and started preparing for this prestigious exam. And, finally in 2016, I got through by securing 30th position in the Punjab province.
JWT: What attracted you most toward PMS?
OS: The most attractive thing to me is that a PMS Officer always serves in the Punjab province and holds the key posts throughout his career. Starting from the positions like Assistant Commissioner, Assistant Director Anti-Corruption, District Monitoring Officer, one can enter into the higher echelons of the provincial bureaucracy where he has the capacity and the authority to positively impact the lives of millions of people.
JWT: How much helpful did you find Jahangir’s World Times (JWT) during your preparation for PMS?
OS: JWT helped me a great deal in getting much-needed latest updates on national and international affairs that helped me get through the General Knowledge paper. In addition, I got information on recent trends of competitive exams through this mag.
JWT: What, in your opinion, is the key to getting through compulsory papers, especially General Knowledge paper?
OS: After English Essay and English Précis & Composition, the General Knowledge paper is at the third number in the hierarchy of ‘dangerous’ subjects. This paper requires extensive study. So, in my opinion, one must do it on daily basis for at least three hours. For this crucial paper, PMS aspirants must consult at least three good books, JWT magazine and the Dawn newspaper.
