150,000 taking Civil Service Exam today
Manila, Philippines – The Civil Service Commission (CSC) said about 153,387 registered examinees will take the Career Service written examination today, Sunday.
CSC Chairman Francisco Duque III advised the registered examinees to begin checking their school and room assignments via the Online Notice of School Assignment which can be accessed at the CSC website www.csc.gov.ph.
Duque reminded the examinees to print the notice of school assignment and bring it, together with a valid ID card, as these are required to be presented for verification on the day of the exam.
The CSC chief earlier encouraged examinees to conduct ocular visit of their school testing site a day or two before the actual examination to familiarize themselves.
He reminded the examinees of the “No ID, No Exam” rule. He also advised that they should come in proper attire.
“The examination will be administered in 143 testing sites across the country with 86 percent taking the Professional level with the rest taking the Sub-Professional level,” the CSC chief said in a statement.
For this year he disclosed that Southern Tagalog posted the biggest number of examinees at 24,233, grabbing 15.80 percent of the total number of registered examinees covering both Professional and Sub-professional levels.
“The National Capital Region (NCR) came in second with 17,628 examinees or 11.49 percent of the total examinees. Central Luzon (Region 3) and Western Visayas (Region 6) also posted large number of examinees at 13,194 and 11,509 comprising 8.60 percent and 7.50 percent of the total examinees, respectively,” he added.
The CSC reported, though, that the figure excludes 5,889 examinees scheduled to take the examinations in Zamboanga City but which has been postponed to Nov. 10 due to the still unstable situation there.
The same goes for 1,575 examinees in Bongao, Tawi-Tawi and Lamitan City.
