From the Civil Service Commission
The Civil Service Commission (CSC) will be conducting the 2nd Career Service Professional and SubProfessional written examinations for this year on October 18. Application period will run from May 25 to September 3.
Last May 3, more than 180,000 took the Career Service Examination Paper-and-Pencil Test. Passing the CSE is one of the basic requirements in applying for a position in government. The CSE ensures that only competent and credible workers enter the public service.
The examinations are open to individuals, regardless of educational attainment, who are Filipino citizens including those holding dual citizenship, at least 18 years old at the time of filing of application, and have not taken the same level of examination within three months before the date of examination.
Applications should be filed in person at the CSC Regional Office (CSCRO), or at any of the concerned CSCRO’s Field Offices, where the applicant intends to take the examination. The CSC, though, has warned that acceptance of applications may be closed at any time before Sept. 3, 2015 once the CSC Regional/Field Office has reached the target number of applicants. Examination fee for both levels of CSE-PPT is P500.
Applicants are advised to access the CSC website www.csc.gov.ph and look for the 2015 CSE-PPT Examination Announcement, for details on testing centers, qualifications, application requirements and procedures, and other relevant information.
