In May 2015 exams, more than 180,000 took the Career Service Examination Paper-and-Pencil Test. Passing the CSE is one of the basic requirements in applying for a position in government. The CSE ensures that only competent and credible workers enter the public service.

CSC reminds that acceptance of applications shall be on a FIRST-COME, FIRST-SERVED basis and, thus, shall be closed any time before deadline once the CSC Regional/Field Office has reached the target number of applicants.

According to CSC, there will be at least 57 testing centers nationwide for April 17, 2016 Civil Service Exam (CSE-PPT).

All applicants must strictly meet the following qualification requirements:

  • Filipino citizen;

a) Approval of applications may be recalled any time upon discovery of applicant’s disqualification, for which the examination fees paid shall be forfeited.

b) Applicants holding dual citizenship under R.A. 9225 (Citizenship Retention and Re-acquisition Act of 2003) may apply for and take the examination upon presentation of original, and submission of a copy of, Certification of Retention/Re-acquisition of Philippine Citizenship from the Bureau of Immigration, and meeting of all the other admission and application requirements for the examination.

c) Applicants with pending administrative and/or criminal cases may take the examination and shall be conferred the eligibility if they successfully pass the same.

d) Passers of the regular Bar examination given by the Supreme Court of the Philippines and of Board examinations given by the Professional Regulation Commission are automatically granted a civil service eligibility pursuant to Republic Act (RA) No. 1080.
