Applications for the 26 March 2023 Career Service Examination-Pen and Paper Test for Professional and Subprofessional Levels will be accepted starting 22 December 2022 until 25 January 2023, the Civil Service Commission (CSC) announced.
A special application period is also scheduled on 14 December to 21 December 2022 for examinees of the cancelled 15 March 2020 CSE-PPT who will opt not to claim the refund and instead take the 26 March 2023 exam.
The CSC stressed that applications will be accepted on a first-come, first-served basis, and that the CSC Regional or Field Office may stop receiving applications any time before the deadline once it has reached its target number of applicants.
CSC Chairperson Karlo Nograles anticipates a huge turnout of examinees next year. “Nagtalaga po ang CSC ng 86 testing centers para sa darating na exam sa Marso, kaya’t mas marami tayong maa-accommodate na examinees at mas maraming pagpipiliang lugar kung saan nila nais kumuha ng exam. Inatasan na natin ang lahat ng ating CSC Regional and Field Offices na maghanda para sa pagdagsa ng mga aplikante simula sa unang araw ng filing, lalo na’t marami pa rin sa ating mga kababayan ang nag-aasam na makakuha ng eligibility at makapagsilbi sa pamahalaan,” he said.
He added, “Ngayon pa lang, maaari nang makipag-ugnayan ang mga interested applicants sa ating CSC Regional at Field Offices upang malaman ang mode of filing at procedures na angkop sa kanilang lugar.”
The directory of CSC Regional and Field Offices is available on the CSC website at www.csc.gov.ph.
