10-27-2013 14:39 BJT

Over 1.5 million people have been accepted to sit in for China’s 2014 national civil service exam, set to take place next month.

Exam takers will be competing for 19 thousand national-level government jobs, that’s on average 77 people fighting for a single position. This marks a record in terms of applicants. Some positions are more popular than others.

More than 7,000 people are competing for the the most sought-after job. While 72 positions have no takers so far, due either to the positions demanding special requirements, or because of the assignments being in remote locations.

Civil servant jobs remain very attractive in China, despite the country’s efforts to cool public service fever and encourage young people to start their own businesses.
