THE Civil Service Commission (CSC) announced that a total of 381,735 individuals took the Career Service Examination-Pen and Paper Test (CSE-PPT) Professional and Subprofessional levels yesterday, 26 March 2023, in 94 testing centers nationwide.

According to CSC Chairperson Karlo Nograles, 94.56% of the registered individuals took part in yesterday’s exam for aspiring civil servants, with 331,928 takers for the CSE for Professional Level and 49,807 takers for the Subprofessional Level.

“This could be the biggest turnout the CSC has had for a single CSE-PPT schedule. Ginawa natin ito dahil batid nating marami pa rin sa ating mga kababayan ang nagnanais makakuha ng career service eligibility, lalo na iyong mga naapektuhan ng postponement ng exam administration noong kasagsagan ng COVID-19 pandemic,” announced Chairperson Nograles.

No significant issues were reported among the examiners and examinees, as everyone followed instructions and cooperated with the health and safety protocols announced beforehand.

During his visit at Guiguinto National Vocational High School and Marcelo H. Del Pilar National High School in the Municipalities of Guiguinto and Malolos, Bulacan, Chairperson Nograles also expressed gratitude to the teachers, partners in local government units, and other government personnel who served as room examiners and proctors as the administration aims to accommodate more Filipinos in the public sector workforce.

“Kami po sa CSC ay nagpapasalamat sa paglalaan ninyo ng oras at lakas para sa ating exam ngayong araw. Dahil sa inyong dedikasyon na maglingkod kahit sa araw ng Linggo, napapanatili natin ang integridad at kaayusan ng CSE,” Chairperson Nograles added.

Top CSC officials also visited testing centers to inspect the actual operations of the exams and commended volunteers nationwide. Commissioner Aileen Lourdes A. Lizada visited Baguio testing centers together with Examination, Recruitment, and Placement Office Directors Prisco S. Rivera, Jr. and Cherry C. Berris; Acting Executive Director IV Victoria F. Esber visited Tacloban City testing center; Asst. Commissioner Karin Litz P. Zerna made rounds in Dumaguete City; and Asst. Commissioner Ariel G. Ronquillo inspected Quezon City testing centers.
