In the educational institutes, workplace, or even in every single aspect of life the concept of meritocracy should be applied. The general definition of meritocracy is to hire professionals based on their efforts, abilities, and performances rather than some references or associations. In Pakistan, the merit-based system wasn’t so prominent before the establishment of some recruitment agencies or organizations. These organizations, because of their unique strategies and ideas, have made possible admissions in higher educational institutes and employment in the government and non-government organizations only on the merit base. Out of these organizations National testing Services, NTS is the one.
NTS was organized in 2002 to introduce an international level testing and assessment system in Pakistan. The testing service is working to regulate the admission and recruitment process in several government sectors and private sectors educational institutes and workplaces respectively. The organization does not only limited to local or national level testing or assessment systems but it also conducts tests for international admission and recruitment processes.
How NTS Has Created A Wonderful Meritocratic System

Transparency in Testing System
We see transparency in the testing system. No objection and corruption have been seen in the testing system by NTS. Candidates are registered through a proper channel and relevant tests are designed for particular positions. Moreover, tests are conducted in a completely satisfying environment.
International Standard Testing System
The testing system is based on the international standard that has been adopted by the developed countries. This thing helps candidates to know the international standard of the testing system and they can also appear easily for other international level tests and assessment trials.

This testing service measures the knowledge and skill of the candidates exceptionally. Through the expert staff and teachers, the tests are designed and conducted.
Score Reporting and Transparent Result System
Where the exams are prepared and conducted in a transparent and satisfying environment, at the same time, NTS arranges and declares the score reports and results with 100% perfection. This act of NTS does not only select deserving candidates but also enhances the values of the meritocratic concept in Pakistan.
Teachers’ Training And Professional Development
To perform all the actions safely and accurately, the NTS services hire professional staff. However, in order to bring potential success, NTS offers proper teachers training and professional development or environment that are the key factors to regulate any of the organization or service.
