April 2016 CS Exam Application Deadline (Extended)

This is a press release from CSC.

Davao City -The Civil Service Commission (CSC) extends the deadline of the filing of applications for the April 17 Career Service Examination, Paper-and-Pencil Test (CSE-PPT) up to February 26, 2016.

CSC said that the filing period, which initially was set until February 25 only, is extended in light of the declaration of February 25, 2016, as a Special Non-Working Holiday throughout the country in celebration of the 30th Anniversary of the EDSA People Power Revolution.

The Career Service Examination is open to Filipino citizens who are at least 18 years old at the time of filing of the application. While applicants may continuously take the examinations regardless of the number of times failed, the CSC stressed that the same level of examination should be taken once in every three months. With this condition, applicants for the April 17, 2016 examinations must not have taken the same level of the examination since Jan. 17, 2016.

Applications must be filed personally at the CSC Regional Office (CSCRO), or at any of the CSCRO’s Field Offices, where applicants intend to take the examination. The CSC reminds that acceptance of the application is on a first-come, first served basis, adding that it may be closed earlier than February 26 once the allotted number of examinees had been reached.

For the qualifications and complete list and specifications of application requirements, interested applicants may access CSC Examination Announcement No. 07, s. 2015 posted at the CSC website www.csc.gov.ph. The examination fee is PhP500.
