Fresh grads urged to take CSC pen and paper exam
MANILA, Philippines — The Civil Service Commission (CSC) appealed on Sunday to the set of graduates this 2019 to take its pen and paper exam.
CSC Commissioner Atty. Aileen Lizada said that newly graduates have the advantage because their learnings are still fresh.
“Is it good for those who are newly graduates or still studying to take the exams? Mas advantageous ba? Yes,” Lizada said in a press conference.
“That’s why I am appealing to the fresh graduates, or for those who are still studying, take the exams now kasi yung iba ang tagal magtake ng exams,” she added.
According to the data of the CSC, a total of 279,410 registered to take the pen and paper exam of the commission last March.
Out of the said number, 243,793 of them took the professional level while 35,617 took the subprofessional level.
The civil service exam can be taken by any Filipino citizen 18 years old and up, has no criminal record, has not been dishonorably discharged from military service, or dismissed for cause from any civilian position in the government and has not taken the same level of career service examination within three months from the last examination taken.
The next pen and paper test of the CSC is set in August this year.
