Applications on First Come, First Served Basis
Take note, however, that the CSC has put a limit on the number of applicants who can file for these examinations.
If the target number is reached on the first day, applications will no longer be accepted even if there are still many days left before the deadline.
Considering that the civil service exams had been canceled or postponed since the pandemic started in 2020, there could be a high number of people who want to take the tests.
So, it’s best to file early if you’re planning to take the exams this year.
Use CS Form No. 100, Revised September 2016 for your application, and submit to the nearest CSC office with your requirements.
Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, there are additional requirements that the CSC imposes on exam takers, be sure to take note of these:
- NO FACE MASK and NO FACE SHIELD, NO ENTRY TO TESTING VENUE and NO EXAM
- NO I.D. CARD/DOCUMENT, NO EXAM
- Vaccination Card, or a “Negative” RT-PCR/Saliva/Antigen Test Result
As with previous exams, you should also follow these rules:
