Civil Service Exams to Push Through on August 4 Despite Heavy Rains

With the Civil Service Exams scheduled on Sunday, a lot of people are unsure whether it would push through because of heavy rains they are experiencing at their place.

Will the exams push through or will the Civil Service Commission (CSC) move it to a later date?

Since many of the examinees still have to travel far to reach their school assignment, it is important to allot plenty of time to reach the venue.

It would actually be a good idea to go to the location a day ahead of schedule so you can have time to find the school and to rest.

You don’t want to be stuck in traffic on the day of the exam and still need to find the school assignment! Remember, many exam venues close their gates at 7AM.

As for updates on whether the exams are canceled due to heavy rains, the CSC advises exam takers to monitor the news media as well as CSC information channels for cancelations that would affect the exam schedule.

On August 3, 2019, a day before the scheduled CSE-PPT, CSC Atty. Aileen Lizada announced that the exams will push through.

PTV announced on its Facebook page:

JUST IN: All regions will conduct Civil Service Exam tomorrow. Moreover, Region 3 shall continuously monitor areas of Bulacan and Zambales.
