Tuesday, April 26, 2011
THE Civil Service Commission (CSC) professional and sub-professional written examinations will be simultaneously administered nationwide on May 22.
Both exam levels are open to Filipinos at least 18 years old at the time of filing of application regardless of educational attainment. Applicants should have not taken the same level of examination in less than three months or since February 22, 2011.
Successful examinees will be conferred Career Service Professional and Sub-Professional eligibilities which, together with education, experience and training qualifications, are needed for permanent appointment to second and first level positions, respectively, in government that are not covered by the Bar, board and special laws.
The CSC also advised that passers of the Bar or other board examinations need not apply for the Career Service examination since they are automatically considered civil service eligible pursuant to Republic Act (RA) 1080.
Graduates of baccalaureate degrees with cum laude, magna cum laude or summa cum laude honors are also exempted as they are entitled to the grant of the honor graduate eligibility under Presidential Decree (PD) 907.
The same is true for graduates of bachelor’s degrees with major or specialization in identified science fields, who have gained at least three years of science research and teaching experience, or have earned a master’s or doctorate degree in identified science fields. These are conferred the scientific and technological (S&T) specialist eligibility as per PD 997.
The CSC examination is a general ability test that aims to measure verbal, analytical, numerical and clerical skills. Both professional and sub-professional levels have general information questions on the Constitution, government work ethics or RA 6713, peace and human rights issues and concepts as well as environment management and protection.
