The Civil Service Commission (CSC) announced yesterday that it has started accepting applications for the October 23 schedule of Career Service Examination (Paper-and-Pencil Test), Professional and SubProfessional levels.

The CSE is open to Filipino citizens who are at least 18 years old at the time of filing of application. While applicants may continuously take the examinations regardless of the number of times failed, the CSC stressed that the same level of examination should be taken once in every three months.

Applications must be filed personally at the CSC Regional Office (CSCRO), or at any of the CSCRO’s Field Offices, where applicants intend to take the examination. The CSC reminds that while the application period ends on September 1, acceptance of application is on a first-come, first-served basis, hence it may close earlier than the deadline if the CSCRO or FO has already reached the target number of applicants.

For the qualifications and complete list of application requirements, interested applicants may access CSC Examination Announcement No. 07, s. 2015. Examination fee is PhP500.

Meanwhile, for the 229,463 registered examinees last April 17, test results shall be released within 41 days after the examination through posting of the List of Passers in the CSC website.

Those who will pass should coordinate and verify with the CSCRO concerned the availability of their Certification of Eligibility (CoE) and the requirements in claiming it. Passers must personally claim their CoE. Representatives are not allowed to claim the same. Claiming of CoE shall be available approximately 30 days after the posting of the List of Passers.

CSC advises examinees to coordinate directly with CSCROs for other relevant concerns including verification of examinee number. CSC will issue a corresponding Advisory on these matters.
