CSC to conduct mixed type of career service exams

The Civil Service Commission (CSC) on Thursday said it will conduct different setups for this year’s Career Service Examinations, following the cancellation of the Civil Service Examinations last year due to the outbreak of coronavirus disease (Covid-19).

In Regions 1, 6, 7, 12, and Bangsamoro Autonomous Region in Muslim Mindanao, the CSC will conduct Career Service Examination-Pen and Paper Test (CSE-PPT) on 18 July.

“The CSC exam will happen on 18 July, this is a pen and paper test,” CSC Commissioner Aileen Lizada said during the #LagingHandaPH briefing.

Lizada said the decision to push the civil service examination is based upon the consultation with the regional directors of areas with low Covid-19 infection rates.

“We also coordinated with the local chief executives, local executives, and regional IATF and they allowed it in those areas,” she added.

She said most of the slots in the regional testing centers mentioned above are already full.

In the National Capital Region, the virus epicenter in the country, an agency-based pen, and paper test will be conducted.

“Because of what is happening in the NCR, we have many limitations. What we will do in NCR is an agency-based pen and paper test,” she said.

According to Lizada, in this setup, the CSC will go directly with the government agencies to administer the examinations.

She said this is to sustain the demand from job orders (JOs) and contract of service (COS) workers who have been working in the government for many years.

Some of the government agencies that will conduct agency-based pen and paper tests are the House of Representatives, Office of the President, Presidential Communications Operations Office, Departments of Labor and Employment, Transportation, Interior and Local Government, Trade and Industry, and Finance.

Aside from the traditional pen and paper examinations, the CSC is currently conducting an online Career Service Examination for the first time.

“We have computerized examinations that are ongoing, this is regular at least two or three times a week depending on the areas. We have CSC regional offices 4, 6, 7, 8, CARAGA and Cordillera Administrative Region,” she said.

Lizada said the agency is aiming to transition to online next year.

Due to the ongoing pandemic, only 50 percent capacity of the testing venue will be used.

All of the examinees are required to download and register to StaySafe.Ph, a contract tracing app.

They are also required to submit a health declaration form.

She said the CSC will also deploy marshals to ensure that minimum health protocols will be implemented.

There will also be a health monitoring team, in case, there will be examinees that will exhibit symptoms of Covid-19.

A special testing room will be provided for examinees with special needs such as persons with comorbidities, persons with disabilities as well as pregnant women.
