account_balanceMetro Manila chat_bubble_outline0 Comments

The Civil Service Commission (CSC) said it will proceed with the Career Service Examination-Pen and Paper Test (CSE-PPT) in 66 testing centers nationwide on March 15.

In a news release, the CSC said examinees who exhibit flu-like symptoms on the day of exams are advised not to take the tests.

The CSC made the announcement as it cited precautionary measures that need to be undertaken amid the threat of the novel coronavirus acute respiratory disease (Covid-19) and in response to the Department of Health’s (DOH) recent recommendation on the cancelation of events that draw a huge number of attendees.

Examinees who wish to take the exam as scheduled on March 15 are advised to take self-protection measures prior to and on the day of the exam. As stated by the DOH, these include but are not limited to the following:

-Regular and thorough handwashing and use of alcohol-based hand sanitizers;
-Use of face mask for the following people: a) persons caring for the sick; b) healthcare workers attending to patients with respiratory infections/symptoms; c) persons with respiratory infections/symptoms.

Precautionary measures will also be undertaken at the testing sites on the day of examinations.

Registered examinees are advised not to take the career service tests if they are suffering from respiratory illness or exhibiting flu-like symptoms; those who recently came back from travel to mainland China and its Special Administrative Regions (Hong Kong and Macao), including Taiwan or a country or place to be later covered by the Philippine government-issued travel ban; and those who had recent contact with a person confirmed or suspected of having Covid-19.

Those who will not be able to take the test due to such symptoms and risks can be accommodated in the August 2020 career service exam schedule after due notice to the CSC regional office where they filed their applications.

Based on CSC data, an estimated total of 295,711 individuals nationwide registered for the March exam. Of the figure, an estimated 253,811 will take the Professional Level of the exam while an estimated 41,900 will attempt to hurdle the Subprofessional Level.

The regions with the most number of registered examinees are National Capital Region with 52,180 examinees, Region 4 (Southern Tagalog) with 33,881, Region 6 (Western Visayas) with 23,299, and Region 9 (Zamboanga Peninsula) with 20,194.
