Application for CSC exams accepted until March 12
The Civil Service Commission (CSC)-Lingayen field office will accept applications for the Career Service Examination Paper-and-Pencil Test (CSE-PPT) until March 12.
Special Investigator III Romel Rivera of CSC-Lingayen field office said the CSC will administer the examination for sub-professional and professional levels on May 3 this year.
“For interested applicants, file your application at the CSC-Lingayen Field Office located at National Services Building, Capitol Compound in Lingayen town,” he told the Philippine Information Agency.
The CSE is a general ability test designed to measure an individual's preparedness to enter government service.
Passing the CSE entitles one to either a professional or sub-professional career service eligibility which is one of the basic requirements for permanent appointment to career positions in government, except for positions that involve the practice of profession or are covered by special laws.
The CSE-PPT for professional and sub-professional levels are open to Filipino citizens who are at least 18 years old at the time of filing of application, regardless of educational attainment.
The CSC clarifies that there is no more limit in taking the career service examinations. An individual may continuously take the exams regardless of the number of times failed, provided that the examinee takes the same level of examination once in every three months.
Applications should be filed at the CSC Regional Office (CSCRO) or at any of the concerned CSCRO’s Field Offices, where applicants intend to take the examination.
Applicants are strongly advised to access and read thoroughly the corresponding examination announcements for CSE-PPT now posted in the CSC website www.csc.gov.ph for details on testing centers, qualifications, application requirements and procedures and other relevant information.<!--more-->
