According to the CSC, over 180,000 hopefuls took the civil service exam in 56 designated testing centers across the country last May 3.

Passing the test is a crucial step toward establishing a career in government, the Commission said, as successful examinees will be entitled to either the Professional or Sub-Professional eligibility, which is a basic requirement—together with education, experience, and training—for permanent appointment in the career service.

The CSC said that 157,041 individuals, comprising 86.92% of the total number of examinees, took the Professional level of examination while the rest hurdled the Sub-Professional test.

It was reported that Southern Tagalog (Region IV) has the biggest number of examinees at 26,509 or 14.67 percent of the total number of examinees. This is followed by National Capital Region with 25,430 examinees, comprising 14.07 percent. Other regions with considerable turnout of examinees include Zamboanga Peninsula (Region IX) with 12,097 examinees; Western Visayas (Region VI) with 11,993; Central Luzon (Region III) with 11,796; and Bicol (Region V) with 11,288.

As general ability tests, the three-hour Professional level examination covered vocabulary, grammar and correct usage, paragraph organization, reading comprehension, analogy, logic, and numerical reasoning. The Sub-Professional exam, which lasts for two and a half hours, covered the same subject areas except analogy and logic, and also includes questions on spelling and clerical operations, the CSC explained.

General information questions about the Philippine Constitution, the Code of Conduct and Ethical Standards for Public Officials and Employees (R.A. 6713), peace and human rights issues and concepts, and environment management and protection were included in the exam.

When the civil service exam results are available, the CSC is expected to release an advisory stating that passers may secure a Certificate of Eligibility from the regional office which has jurisdiction over the test center where they took the exam. Each regional office will then announce the date and procedure on how to claim a CoE.

Passing rate for the civil service exam is 80.
