    Who are qualified to take for professional? Subprofessional?

    • Mary Claire Salvador Jan 8, 2022 @ 7:49

      If you have a bachelor degree its better for you to take the Professional exam, because if you’ll pass the sub professional exam you need to take the exam again for Professional eligibility, you can take either Professional or Sub Prof exam its a matter of grade salary when you apply in a government offices.

      You can file your application for csc even if you have no vaccination card, but on the day of examination you have to present your rt pcr test or antigen test to be able for you to take the exam, you have to present the negative result of your rt pcr or antigen test result. This is applicable for those who are partially vaccinated/not vaccinated.
