200K+ examinees take Civil Service Exams today

Fifty-two schools designated as testing centers nationwide will administer the Civil Service examinations today.

86.49 percent or 171,684 will take the Professional level while the rest will take the Subprofessional level.

The Career Service Examination is a general ability test which covers the following subject areas: vocabulary, grammar and correct usage, paragraph organization, reading comprehension, analogy, logic, and numerical reasoning for the Professional level.

On the other hand, the Subprofessional level covers vocabulary, grammar and correct usage, paragraph organization, reading comprehension, numerical reasoning, spelling, and clerical operations.

Both levels have general information questions on the Philippine Constitution, the Code of Conduct and Ethical Standards for Public Officials and Employees (Republic Act No. 6713), peace and human rights issues and concepts, and environment management and protection.

The Professional level is three hours and 10 minutes long with 170 items, while the Subprofessional level lasts two hours and 30 minutes with 165 items.

Examinees need to obtain a rating of 80 percent to pass the exams.

Eligible to enter the civil service

Passers of the Career Service Examinations will be conferred an eligibility needed for permanent appointment in government positions.

The civil service eligibility, however, does not apply to positions that involve practice of profession or are covered by special laws.

The second written Career Service Examination for the year is scheduled on Oct. 26. Application will be from April 7 to Sept. 11 at any CSC Regional or Field Office.

Qualification, application requirements, and other related information about the civil service exams are posted on the CSC website. (CSC)
