CIVIL Service Commission (CSC) will conduct another round of Career Service Examinations Paper and Pencil Test on April 25 at Baguio City National High School for Professional and at Pines City National High School for Subprofessional levels.
In a press release, CSC officials said if the notice or permit is not received one week before the examination date, the applicants must personally verify their school and room assignments from the CSC-Cordillera regional office, or check from the Field Office where they filed their application.
Failure to take the examination on the scheduled date will mean forfeiture of the paid examination fees. No request for re-scheduling of examination is allowed.
The examinations will cover the following subjects in English and Filipino, vocabulary, grammar and correct usage, paragraph organization, reading comprehension, analogy logic and numerical reasoning.
For subprofessional level, subjects to be covered include English and Filipino. These cover vocabulary, grammar and correct usage, paragraph organization, reading comprehension, spelling, clerical operations, and numerical reasoning.
Both professional and subprofessional levels of the examinations will have general information on the Philippine Constitution, Code of Conduct and Ethical Standards for Public Officials and Employees, Peace and Human Rights issues and concepts, and Environment Management and Protection.
To pass the test, the examinees should get a general average of at least 80 percent, the press release said.
Meanwhile, CSC-Cordillera has also released its 2010 Training Calendar.
Aside from training for career advancement, the agency also confers awards yearly for outstanding government workers.
Jerol D. Bides, construction and maintenance man of the Provincial Government of Abra, was recently recognized for his act of honesty in returning P17,000, which was found inside a pharmacy in their province last year.
Moreover, 245 police officers in Mountain Province were also given Gantimpala Award for their prompt and heroic acts demonstrated during the Typhoon Pepeng that hit the Cordillera last year.
The Gantimpala Agad Award is the reward component of the Mamamayan Muna Program, which primarily aims to give instant recognition and reward or incentive to government officials and employees who have rendered prompt, courteous, efficient, quality and honest service, as well as heroic act in the course of duty.
As of December 2009, 343 government personnel from the Cordillera region had become recipients of the Gantimpala Agad Award. (JM Agreda)
