    CSC Eligibility

    The scheduled Career Service Examination Pen and Paper Tests are for applicants who still need to be eligible and want to apply for a permanent government position or a promotion. The eligibility exams also give opportunities to employees under job orders and service contracts.

    As per CSC, professional eligibility is needed for appointment to second-level (technical) government positions requiring at least a bachelor’s degree in education. Subprofessional eligibility applies to first-level (clerical) government positions that require less than four years of college studies. Professional eligibility may also be used for clerical positions. Both eligibilities, though, cannot be used for positions involving the practice of the profession and those covered by special laws.

    CSC’s regular conduct of the Career Service Exam and Pen and Paper Test (CSE-PPT), both for Prof and Subprof levels, is scheduled twice a year to cater to the growing number of examinees.

    Bar/ Board/ Honor Graduates CSC Eligibilities

    Bar examination passers given by the Supreme Court of the Philippines are automatically granted Civil Service Eligibility.

    Board Exam passers given by the Professional Regulation Commission (PRC) are also automatically granted CSC eligibility under Republic Act No. 1080.

    Honor Graduates may opt not to apply also since they are already eligible and may be granted Honor Graduate Eligibility under P.D. 907.

    Though the following are already CSC eligibles, they can always take CSE.
