"People with working experience will help improve the quality and efficiency of government in the long run," Pan added, resolving to apply for a grassroots post.

However, the new requirement does not change much for students who take the exam hoping to get lucky.

"The new policy does not change much as the exam is still surrounded by fierce competition. I haven't invested much hope in it," said Jia Wen, a graduate student in Beijing Foreign Studies University.

Of those recruited by central government departments, over 75 percent came from ordinary families, and their parents were often workers, farmers, teachers, doctors or engineers, the senior official said in the interview with Xinhua, showing the fairness of the exam.

Statistics from the State Administration of Civil Service showed that exams in the past five years had been taken by 11.77 million people, among whom 620,000 were recruited as civil servants. (Yang Chunxue contributed to the story)
