7 October 2022 - A total of 26,307 examinees passed the Career Service Examination-Pen and Paper Test (CSE-PPT) held nationwide last 7 August 2022, the Civil Service Commission (CSC) announced.

Said number represents 18.97% of the 138,703 actual number of examinees who took the test on that day. The Professional Level logged 22,241 passers out of 117,938 examinees or a passing rate of 18.86%. Meanwhile, 4,066 out of 20,765 examinees or 19.58% passed the Subprofessional Level.

The Professional Level passers shall be conferred the Career Service Professional Eligibility, which is appropriate for appointment to first and second level positions in the government service. On the other hand, Subprofessional Level passers shall obtain the Career Service Subprofessional Eligibility, appropriate for appointment to first level positions only. These do not include positions requiring passing professional licensure exams (bar/board) or those requiring eligibilities covered by special laws and issuances.

The first level includes clerical, trades, crafts, and custodial service positions requiring less than four years of college studies; while the second level covers professional, technical, scientific, and managerial positions requiring at least four years of college studies.

The CSC, however, reminds the latest CSE passers that eligibility is not the sole requirement for entering government service. Applicants to vacant positions must meet the Qualification Standards of the position—consisting of education, training, experience, and eligibility—in order to qualify.

The list of passers can be viewed from the CSC website at www.csc.gov.ph. Click on the “Examination Results” button on the right hand side of the page, or go directly to the CSC Examination Portal at www.csc.gov.ph/exam-portal.

Examinees, both passed and failed, can generate their individual test results using the Online Civil Service Examination Results Generation System or OCSERGS by 21 October 2022.
