Career Service Examination-Paper and Pencil Test (CSE-PPT)

Individuals seeking public service qualification can prepare for government exams this early, as the Civil Service Commission (CSC) recently released the calendar of civil service examinations for 2012.

The Career Service Examination-Paper and Pencil Test (CSE-PPT), both for Professional and Sub-Professional levels, will be conducted on May 27 and October 21 this year. Passing the CSE entitles one to either a Professional or Sub-Professional eligibility which, along with education, experience and training requirements, is needed for permanent appointment to corresponding positions in the government career service.

The CSE-PPT is open to Filipino citizens, regardless of educational attainment, who are at least 18 years old at the time of filing of application, and who have not taken the same level of examination within three months from the exam date. For instance, applicants for the April 14 examination must not take the same level of examination from November 19, 2012 to February 28, 2013. However, taking different levels of examination within the said period is allowed.

Applications for the October 13 CSE-PPT may be filed from April 15, 2013  to August 30, 2013at any CSC Regional or Field Office. However, the application period may be closed at any time before said date once the CSC Regional/Field Office has reached its quota, the CSC warned.

    • I believe you have to personally submit your documents. CSC will be needing your thumbprints and signature. Not really sure if they allow representatuve, you may contact CSC about your concern through the website. They also respond quickly from SMS.
