All of them were satisfy because they knew that the exams are fair and transparent.

Through this examination, the Ministry of the Home Affairs has accepted the effectiveness of this recruitment type in ensuring fairness and transparency, in cost reducing and time saving.

The Ministry of Home Affairs will continue to study, modify, and complete the examination software and database for the implementation in the future.
