The civil service exam is the type of examination that must be passed by those who wish to find a job in the government or in civil service, as the exam’s name suggests.
Governments around the world implement various examinations, but all aim to use this method to use the exam as a merit system to gauge the applicants’ capacity for working in the public sector.
In the Philippines, the civil service exams are created and administered by the Civil Service Commission (CSC). The commission also keeps the records of all exam passers for future reference.

Professional and Subprofessional Level
In the Philippines, the CSC administers two types of basic civil service exams: one for professionals (pro) and another for sub-professionals (sub-pro).
Passers of the sub-pro exam may only be accepted for first-level or clerical government positions. Meanwhile, passers of the pro exam can be accepted in both the first-level or clerical government positions as well as in technical, executive, or managerial (second-level) government positions.
Civil Service Examination Coverage
The civil service exams in the Philippines have similar coverage to most college entrance exams.
With questions in English and Filipino, the civil service exam covers a wide range of subjects from basic grammar questions in English to math problems as well as basic knowledge about government functions and the responsibilities of those in civil service.
