Are you prepared for the upcoming Civil Service Exam? Here are some IMPORTANT REMINDERS:
KNOW WHERE YOU’LL BE TAKING YOUR EXAM
Examinees’ school assignment for the CSE-PPT for both the Professional and SubProfessional levels may be generated using ONSA or the Online Notice of School Assignment. It can be accessed in the CSC website www.csc.gov.ph two weeks before the actual exam. To use ONSA, examinees should encode/fill in the required data in the corresponding data fields accurately, following the indicated format. Examinees are advised to have a print-out of their Notice of School Assignment using ONSA.
If examinees cannot access the ONSA and/or still do not know their school assignment one week before the examination day, they should inquire directly with the CSC Regional/Field Office concerned (the office where they filed their application). A complete directory of CSC Regional/Field Offices nationwide is available at the CSC website.
Once you know where you’ll be taking the exam, visit and have an ocular inspection of the assigned school/testing venue at least one day before the examination day to be familiar with the school location.

STEP 1: Know what the CSE-PPT is all about
Why should you take the CSE-PPT and what awaits you if you pass?
The CSC or the Civil Service Commission uses the Civil Service Exam or the CSE-PPT (Career Service Examination – Pen and Paper Test) to determine which individuals are fit to work for the government. If you want to work for government agencies and offices, you’ll most likely need a Civil Service Eligibility if you want to get hired and become a permanent employee.
Should you take the Pro or the Sub-Pro level of the examination?
When deciding which level of examination should you take, you should only consider two things: (a) That the Professional Level Exam is more difficult than the SubProfessional Level Exam (Read on to see the topic coverage of both exams); and (b) That naturally, passing the Professional Level Exam will give you more benefits. Those who pass the Professional Level of the exam will be eligible for both first and second level positions in the government that do not involve the practice of a profession and are not covered by special/other laws. On the other hand, those who pass the SubProfessional level can only be appointed to first level positions (clerical, trades, crafts and custodial service).

CSE-PPT FAQs : Should I go for the Civil Service Exam – Professional level or should I take the SubProfessional level first?
Should you take the exam for the Professional level right away or opt for the SubProfessional level first? Most people would go for the CSE-SubProfessional level first before they take the CSE-Professional level. However, there is really no need to take both or to take one after the other. You can simply take the Professional level right away if you are aiming for second-level positions – and if you’re prepared for it.
