- Reset of the October 18, 2015 CSE-PPT Due to Super Typhoon Lando to December 6, 2015.
- The CSC reminds all examinees concerned that they are given one chance only to take the rescheduled examination free of charge.
The Civil Service Commission has approved the resetting of the October 18, 2015 Career Service Examination, Paper-and-Pencil Test (CSE-PPT) on December 6, 2015 for both Professional and SubProfessional levels in select regions and testing centers in the country.
Due to the onslaught of Super Typhoon Lando, CSC reconsidered a reset exam on the following regions:
- National Capital Region (NCR), Regions 1 (Ilocos)
- 2 (Cagayan)
- Cordillera Administrative Region (CAR)
- Cabanatuan City and Olongapo City testing centers
- Bongao, Tawi-Tawi testing center
Affected examinees of regions and testing centers mentioned above shall have the same school assignments as in the suspended Oct. 18 examination. As such, they are no longer required to register for the examination. The CSC stressed, though, that any request for transfer of testing venue shall not be allowed.
On the other hand, though no suspension was implemented in Regions 4 (Southern Luzon) and 5 (Bicol), as well as in City of San Fernando, Pampanga and Malolos City testing centers, the CSC also considers those who were not able to take the Oct. 18 examination in these areas as “affected examinees”. They need, however, to register for the Dec. 6 examination. Registration period runs from Oct. 26, 2015 until Nov. 6, 2015 only.
To register, examinees of Regions 4 and 5, and of the City of San Fernando, Pampanga and Malolos City, should appear in person before the CSC Regional or Field Office nearest them and present their valid I.D. and, if available, their original Application Receipt and/or CSC Official Receipt for the Oct. 18 examination.
The CSC reminds all examinees concerned that they are given one chance only to take the rescheduled examination free of charge. “Those who would not be able to take the Dec. 6, 2015 examination shall have their examination fee and slot forfeited,” the CSC said, stressing that any request for postponement or another rescheduling shall not be allowed.
The CSC further clarified that the directive for the Dec. 6, 2015 examination does not cover Regions 6, 7, 8, 9, 10, 11, 12, Caraga and ARMM, except for Bongao, Tawi-Tawi. This means that examinees of these regions who were not able to take the CSE-PPT on Oct. 18 had already forfeited their examination slot and fee. CSC / MCAG
