I took the civil service exam last April 14, 2013 in a public school somewhere in Cubao, Quezon City. A career shift I never plan to get myself into, but when opportunity knocks who are we to ignore change! 🙂

Was supposed to join the Civil Service Examination 3 years ago, due to time constraints I finally did April 2013. Armed with confidence (hahaha!), self-knowledge, common sense and without stuff to review. I conquered a grueling Career Service Professional Examination scheduled for 3 hours (from 8AM to 11AM). My notice came two (2) days before the exam, add up the 3 weeks I followed up via text brigade and emails. CS stuff will send you SMS (text) and and email pertaining to your Online Notice of School Assignment (NOSA) to be printed out and bring during the examination day.

SMS Message:
“This is to inform you that you have been conditionally admitted to take the CS Professional Exam to be held on April 14, 2013, 6:60 a.m. at Room No. 14 of R. MAGSAYSAY (Cubao) HIGH SCHOOL, EDSA (In Front of NEPA Q MART) Q.C.
Note: On exam day, bring the same ID submitted during filing of application, lead pencil #2 and ballpen.”

Career Service Professional Examination
The actual examination started at exactly 8AM. however, we were advised to settle in at least 7AM to accomplish a master list’s (assigned per room, per batch) filling up complete names, important personal details and thumbprints. The total number items to be shaded are 150, first 20 questions are about your personal details (with auto-correct answers). The rest of the questionnaire for Professional Level includes vocabulary, grammar and correct usage, paragraph organization, reading comprehension, analogy, logic, and numerical reasoning; both in English and Filipino format.

Items about General Information, which include the following areas: Philippine Constitution, Code of Conduct and Ethical Standards for Public Officials and Employees (R.A. 6713), Peace and Human Rights Issues and Concepts, and Environment Management and Protection are seen on the last part of the examination.

For this year, honestly I was a slacker and over-confident. 🙂 I thought I’ve read enough and have retain vocabularies on my nutshells since the day I started to comprehend phonemes and words on early years of my education. But that was years and years ago (you don’t want to know!). The Civil Service Examination is largely made up of analogy and problem-solving, I was saying to myself – “immersing yourself from your parenting blogging conferences about Galileo Math, Singapore Math and BrainFit, you must have to deal with it easier compare to others!” Aha! I did well with the problem solving (as far as I know), but my nature says I really don’t like polynomials, trigonometry, heck with math jargons! So I focus on vocabulary, grammar and correct usage. But alas! the vocabularies shown would not even appear in searches made from Google 🙂 Unless you apply advanced keyword search. The only word I remember was “volatile” because I uses it more often from my blog’s disclosure. Filipino questions appear thrice or at the end each category.

I’ve read wild reactions of Civil Service Exam takers, true to their words – it was really difficult for this batch, take my word for it! The examinees are waving ears for a modest tip they can get from the moderator announced with the use of special tools (to avoid vulgarity LOL) like best pbone at wwbw or from a mega phone maybe, we didn’t get any.

There’s a policeman in uniform from our batch; he finished first and the moderator liberally asked him “are you sure you don’t want to review your answers?” He replied back “Ma’am pang ilan take ko na po yan, sana naman swertehin na!” I went out of the room in third position by 10:30AM (that’s because I give way to a lady) not merely bragging about it, but I was trying to beat the clock. The moderator said if we finished by 10:45AM, we need to wait until 11AM in order to get out as per advised by Civil Service Commission. Can’t wait that long, my back was aching due to prolong seating and the ventilation system (electric fan was cracking up) was unbearable. I hope the others survived (focus and attention) amidst the humid and distraction of summer heat.
