Three Month Prohibition on Taking the Civil Service Exam

Applicants must NOT have taken the same level of CSE being applied for, either through the Pen and Paper Test (PPT) mode or the Computerized Examination (COMEX) mode, within three months before the date of examination.

What is the difference between the Paper-and-Pencil Test (PPT) and the COMEX?

A: The difference between the PPT and COMEX are 1) the manner of filing of application, 2) the examination fee, 3) the manner of taking the examination, and 4) the number of days test results are released.

In the PPT, application is filed personally in any CSCRO while in COMEX, the application begins when an applicant reserved an examination slot and is completed when the applicant confirmed his/her reservation during personal appearance at the Testing Center.

The examination fee is P500 and P600 for the PPT and COMEX, respectively.

With regard to manner of taking the test, examinees in PPT read the test question from a test booklet and record their responses on an answer sheet. On the other hand, examinees in COMEX read the test questions from computer screen and record their answers on the computer through the keyboard.
