In a statement, the CSC said that the message was particularly concerned about takers of the Career Service Examination scheduled last March 15.

That scheduled exam was suspended in compliance with President Rodrigo Duterte’s declaration of a state of public health emergency throughout the country due to the coronavirus disease (COVID-19) pandemic.

According to the CSC, the fake message that was circulating read:  “THUS; President Duterte announced last May 1, 2020 that all EXAMINEES are automatically passed the said exam both Professional Level and Subprofessional Level. CONGRATULATIONS EXAMINEES MARCH 2020.”

“The CSC has not issued any directive to pass registered examinees of the 15 March 2020 CSE Professional and Subprofessional without taking the actual test,” the statement said.

“The CSC made the clarification and emphasized that the Career Service Examination (CSE) is a general ability test that serves as a basic gauge objectively designed to determine and support the merit and fitness of an individual for government career service,” the CSC added.

“It is in this essence that civil service eligibility cannot be simply granted or given away without bases. Thus, the CSC has no existing policy on considering examinees of the Career Service Examination as ‘passed’ by virtue of incidental factors or circumstances such as the COVID-19 pandemic.”

The commission further said that it would issue an advisory on the reset of the scheduled March 15 Career Service Examination “in due time.”
