Reminders for the Examinees of the Civil Service Exam

There are important points to remember once you are already registered to take the Civil Service Exam. Read some of it here so you can be fully prepared.


Know your school and room assignment

Before the day of the exam, you should check your room assignment. It is much better to visit it days before so you will be familiar with the place.

Civil Service Commission usually announces if the room assignment is already available. You can use the online notice of school assignment here.

Be updated

It is important to be updated with the latest announcements of the CSC. To be able to do so, you should be following the main facebook page of CSC, the page of the regional CSC, or their website.

There are circumstances when the exam can be postponed or canceled due to typhoons and other unexpected calamities.

Come early

“Early bird catches the worm.” If you are familiar with this saying, you must know the advantages of being early. The testing venue will be open as early as 6 am. You can go as early as that time.

The gate of the testing venue will be closed by 7:30 Am. You won’t be accepted if you come beyond that time. All your efforts will be wasted. Failure to take the examination on your scheduled date shall mean forfeiture of your examination fee and slot. As a matter of fact, you cannot even reschedule it.

What to bring and what not to bring

You should be aware of the things allowed to bring and what’s not allowed.
