  5. Hello and Good Day!!!

    Hi Sir/Madam if you don’t mind to inquire if they have an schedule for examination of PPT or computer exam of professional civil service for the month of April or May 2019, because during my vacation I want to take the examination please thank you Sir/ Madam.

  6. may i clarify the rule on re taking exam is it 3 month period between exams wc is from date of last exam to date of next one or 3 month period from date of last exam prior to applying? just checking because i took the nov 11 test (originally aug 12) and would like to apply for the march 2019 exam just in case i didnt make it. thats 4 months between exams but if the rule is 3 months before applying again then that would mean i would be eligible to reapply by feb which is past the january cut off . thank you in advance for clarifying the matter.

    • If nag-exam ka noong Nov 11, hindi ka pwedeng mag-exam until Feb 11. So pwede ka na po mag-take sa March na schedule. Pero sayang naman kung nakapasa ka pala. Kasi non-refundable ang application fee. So pag-isipan mo mabuti.

  7. Hi ask lang po, please po kung saan po ako pwede mag submit ng requirements? thank you po sa sasagot… im from san pedro, laguna.
