CSC cancels all written Civil Service Exams this 2020
Civil Service Commission (CSC) announced that there will be no more written Civil Service Exams this 2020 due to the continuing Coronavirus Disease 2019 (COVID-19) pandemic.
In an advisory issued on June 17, CSC Chairperson Alicia deal Rosa-Bala said the difficulty in the implementation of public health standards during the COVID-19 pandemic, such as physical distancing, reduced capacity of public transportation, and restriction on mass gatherings, has led it to cancel the following civil service examinations via the pen-and-paper test (PPT) mode:
Fire Officer Examination, Penology Officer Examination, Basic Competency on Local Treasury Examination scheduled on June 21, 2020; Career Service Examination (CSE) PPT (Professional and Subprofessional Levels) scheduled on August 9, 2020; Intermediate Competency on Local Treasury Examination, Pre-Employment Test, Promotional Test, Ethics-Oriented Personality Test scheduled on October 11, 2020.
Here’s the copy of the Advisory:
Moreover, the conduct of the 15 March 2020 Professional and Subprofessional CSE-PPT shall be reset in 2021. A separate issuance pertaining to the said rescheduled exam will be released by the CSC.
The 15 March 2020 CSE-PPT was supposed to be held in 66 testing locations nationwide with an estimated total of 293,845 individuals nationwide registered to take the test.
