CSC accepts applications for 2016 civil service exams

The Civil Service Commission (CSC) is now accepting application for Career Service Professional and SubProf written exams slated April 17, 2016.

Application period started on November 9, 2015 and ends on February 25, 2016 on a first-come, first-served basis.

The Career Service Examinations – Paper-and-Pencil Test (CSE-PPT) are open to individuals who are Filipino citizens including those holding dual citizenship under R.A. 9225, at least 18 years old at the time of filing of application, and have not taken the same level of examination in less than three months. Applicants who meet these qualifications may apply for and take the CSE-PPT regardless of their educational attainment.

Application requirements include properly accomplished Application Form (CS Form No. 100, Revised 2015), four pieces of recently taken passport size I.D. pictures, and original and photocopy of a valid I.D. card with date of birth. In case the I.D. card has no date of birth, original and photocopy of birth certificate issued by the National Statistics Office should be submitted. Applicants holding dual citizenship should also submit the original and a photocopy of their Certification of Retention/Re-acquisition of Philippine Citizenship issued by the Bureau of Immigration. Examination fee for both levels of examination is P500.

Applications should be filed personally at the CSC Regional Office (CSCRO), or at any of the concerned CSCRO’s Field Offices, where they intend to take the examination. Application forms are available at any CSC Regional or Field Office, or may be downloaded from the CSC website.

Interested applicants are advised to access CSC Examination Announcement No. 07, s. 2015 posted in the CSC website for detailed information on the specifications of the I.D. pictures, the list of accepted I.D. cards, and other information including testing centers.

The CSC reiterates that it neither holds any review class nor publishes and distributes any review material for the career service examinations. Also, the CSC has not accredited any review center for the purpose of offering and holding review classes to prospective career service examinees.

Passing the Career Service examinations results in the conferment of either Career Service Professional eligibility or Career Service SubProfessional eligibility needed, the minimum requirement for permanent appointment to corresponding positions in the government that do not involve practice of profession and are not covered by other/special laws.
