A total of 25,090 out of 219,697 (11.42%) examinees passed the Career Service Examinations, Pen and Paper Test administered nationwide by the Civil Service Commission (CSC) on March 12. The CSC released the complete List of Passers of the Career Service Professional and SubProfessional examinations on April 21 through the CSC website www.csc.gov.ph.

The CSC stressed that only the List of Passers posted on the CSC website is official. It disclaims liability for any other postings of results on any other websites.

Michael Louie D. Lim from Northern Mindanao, with a rating of 92.45, bested 188,528 examinees of the Career Service Professional test, while Faye S. Cruz from Metro Manila, with an 89.12 rating, placed first among the 31,169 hopefuls of the SubProfessional level. The Professional test posted an 11.48% passing rate while the SubProfessional test had 11.07%, respectively comprising 21,640 and 3,450 successful passers.  

The SubProfessional eligibles can be appointed to first level positions (clerical, trades, crafts and custodial service) and Professional eligibles to second level positions (professional, technical and scientific up to division chief) in the government career service that do not involve practice of profession and are not covered by special laws.


Aside from eligibility, an aspirant for a government career service position must meet education, experience and training requirements of the position. Applicants may have to undergo an internal screening process by the agency’s selection board, which may be composed of competency-based written tests, interviews, and other processes to determine the most qualified candidate for the job.
