The Civil Service Commission (CSC) is set to hold its Special Career Service Examination-Pen and Paper Test (CSE-PPT) for Professional and Sub-Professional levels on October 14, Sunday.

In line with this, the CSC on Tuesday issued reminders to exam takers to ensure smooth conduct of tests. The CSC also announced exam centers for takers of Basic Competency on Local Treasury Examination (BCLTE), Intermediate Competency on Local Treasury Examination (ICLTE), Pre-Employment Test, Promotional Test, and the Ethics Oriented Personality Test (EOPT).

However, the CSC clarified that the Special CSE-PPT is different from the suspended August 12 CSE-PPT in the National Capital Region and Morong, Rizal, which was moved to November 11, 2018.

Examinees must adhere to the “no I.D., no exam policy” of the CSC for its 7 examinations. Thus, examinees must bring an I.D. card, preferably the same I.D. presented during the filing of their application.

The CSC said examinees may also present the following valid I.D. cards:

In case the I.D. card bears no date of birth, an original copy of PSA/LCR issued Birth Certificate printed on security paper must be presented.

The CSC also reminded examinees to arrive early on examination day to allow ample time for verification of requirements as well as locating room assignment. Testing venues are open at 6 a.m. and shall be closed by 7:30 a.m.

Examinees who would arrive later than 7:30 a.m. will not be admitted, the CSC said. Failure to take the examination on scheduled date will mean forfeiture of examination fee and slot, it added, while re-scheduling of examination date is not allowed.

The CSC asked examinees to observe proper attire – sleeveless shirt/blouse, shorts/short pants, and slippers are not allowed.

Black ballpen will only be used for the exams while pencils and any other kinds of pen such as gel pen, sign pen, fountain pen, friction pen, etc. including other colors of ball pen are not allowed, the CSC noted.

Calculators, books, dictionaries and other forms of printed materials, watch calculators, cellular phones, smart phones, watches, tablets and other gadgets are strictly prohibited, it also said.
