What is the Philippine Civil Service Examination?
The Philippine Civil Service Examination is given by the Civil Service Commission (CSC) to aspirants who want to work in the Philippine government. All government employees aside from a few exceptions (like passing selected board exams) are required to take the CSC Examination to be granted tenure.
There are two levels of Civil Service Examinations: Subprofessional and Professional. The Subprofessional level is for those who have finished 2-year courses or below. Those who have graduated 4-year courses or beyond are advised to take the Professional level.
The CSC examination is mainly composed of English and Mathematics proficiency. The other areas include Filipino, office filing and ethics, and Philippine constitution particularly Republic Act 6713. As of this writing, the passing score of the CSC Examination is 80%.
This blog will serve as a Civil Service Reviewer for those who want to take the examination. I will be discussing questions that are similar to the examination and provide answers, detailed explanations, and tips. I will also give online mock exercises and examinations. In addition, I will also provide updates, links, and examination results.
For now, I will be discussing Mathematics and English subjects. The other subjects such as Philippine constitution will be discussed later by more qualified persons.
