Policy on Taking the Exam Amended
In CSC Resolution No. 1100300 promulgated on March 1, 2011, the Civil Service Commission revised the policy on the frequency of taking the Career Service Examination. There is no more limit in taking the examination. However, taking the same level of examination, Professional and Subprofessional, either through Paper-and-Pencil Test (CSE-PPT) or Computer-Assisted Test (CAT) shall be once in every three (3) months only.
The Commission based its ruling on the numerous requests received from examination applicants to lift the policy on the frequency of taking the CSE. The Commission also considered the good progress it has made in strengthening security measures and in improving the systems and procedures in the conduct of examinations which made it feasible to lift certain limitation on the frequency of taking the exam.
The Commission also announced that the registration fee for both the Professional and Subprofessional Levels increased to Five Hundred Pesos (Php500.00) pursuant to CSC Resolution No. 1100152 promulgated on February 1, 2011. The new policy on the frequency of taking the Career Service Examination as well as the revised registration fee will now be adopted in the forthcoming CSE-PPT Examination schedules, as follows:
