How to Pass the Civil Service Examination in the Philippines

This Hub Contains Effective Tips and Pointers to Pass the Civil Service Examination (CSE) Prof and Subprof Levels

The Civil Service Examination that is given in the Philippines is indeed a tough nut to crack; the passing rate over the years had dipped drastically, no thanks to the high 80% mark, one should hurdle. The average numbers of examinees passing the exam is somewhere from 8% to 30%, and this makes the test formidable and prestigious. Why not? Passing the examination will give a potential government employee or current employee that hasn’t pass the examination yet the rights to get a permanent job in the government, and gain access to promising privileges like promotions and salary increases.

This acid test proves to be very difficult for most since it can be likened to an IQ test where accumulated knowledge from the field of Mathematics to the English Language may play a vital role in passing.

Being an English speaking country, the English language is given great importance in the test. Reading Comprehension, sentence structure, and vocabulary forms a good portion of the examination.

One of the greatest obstacles in passing the examination is the Mathematics part of the examination, since this offers a lot of solving employing various techniques in solving progressions, linear equations, ratio and proportions and many more.

Those who dont read good books have no advantage over those who cant.
Those who dont read good books have no advantage over those who cant.

Here are some important and practical ways, tips and pointers to maximize your chances of passing and overcoming the CSC exam.

  • Gather as many review materials as you can, the most current the better. Look for review materials that are teeming with typical test questions that are similar to the questions given in actual examination.
  • Review, review and review. Your future is at stake here, and it is wise to use your time very well. Review without let-up as much as possible. Moreover, the exam calls for storing knowledge, constant reading and math problem solving. This is a marathon game and only the well-prepared ones are bound to pass. Superior IQ will not guarantee you a passing score.
  • Don’t rely on prayers and luck. God only helps those who help themselves. Be realistic, you are up against a real examination and faith without hard work is useless. Additionally, passing the exam with pure guesswork is a disaster. You already flunked the exam even with out lifting your pencil if you take the examination without preparations (unless you are genius or exceedingly lucky)
  • There is no way you can pass the examination without hurdling Mathematics first. It is true that this subject is difficult and there is no doubt about that. But there is always a way to tame this subject and that is with patience and practice. Solve as many problems as possibly you can. Math has something to do with getting experience and maturity, the more you solve problems the better you will be. Don’t memorize solutions but be familiar with the principles and concepts. The only thing that is memorized in mathematics are the formulas. Be spontaneous with your solutions; make sure that your answers emanates from your mind. Many hate this subject very much, but if you are good on this, your chance of passing is already bolstered.
  • If you can afford to shellout some fee to get the help of an expert tutor, go ahead. This move will give you an outright edge since you will get good answers about some of your questions with your reviews. You may also want to enroll in a review center that offers CSE review, but be sure that the institution is established and boasts of good passing rate of test takers.
  • Ask previous test takers about what are being asked in the recent examination they took. Get ideas especially from the ones that passed this exam and possibly borrow review materials from them if they have any. This gives you the much-neede trend and possibly get the feel of the style of the test givers.
  • While you review make sure you are eating well and getting ample rest and sleep.If you are healthy you are capable of storing more knowledge that are vital in passing the test.
  • Before the examination, be sure you know your room assignment. Avoid being late since the examination contains many questions. Missing some time because of tardiness, might prevent you from not answering some of the questions or prevent you from from giving the best answers.
  • During the examination make sure you are calm. Avoid being nervous and intense, it is understandable to be pressured but this will not serve you well as time goes by. Hold your nerves will yah, and answer every question to the best of your abilities. To be efficient with your time, answer the easy ones first, you can afford to leave some questions unanswered, but be sure you’ll set at least 15 minutes before the time limit to answer all of the questions that are being asked.

I took the exam last october 13 (sub-professional) and was lucky enough to pass and one of the top ten to boot. I've totally forgotten about it, ngayon ko lang nalaman when somebody told me they saw my name. This is one of the many blogs that I've read when I was madly searching the internet for tips. Talagang super cram because I just reviewed the day before the exam, I was so busy with my capstone napostpone nang napostpone ang review until the day before the exam. Kung di pa nakalagay sa alarm ko to prepare all the things I'll need the following day, I wouldn't have reviewed. Not proud of what I did but I'd like to share a few tips based on experience.

Practice practice practice, especially math and english. Maraming materials available online for free including online mock exams where makukuha mo agad result with the correct answers. Google it. That's what I actually did, sumagot ng mock exams for about 4 hours. For questions that you missed, make sure you understand the principle behind the answer. Igoogle mo na rin. There's one mock exam site where I got a lot of good hintsand I think some questions actually did come out sa actual exam. Meron din civil service mock exam android app, it sucks pero pwede na tyagain. I answered the questions habang nasa jeep papunta sa exam venue.

The concentration of the questions are math, english, and logic. Wala masyado sa Phil consti but do read still (pwede hulaan hehe). For the math part karamihan jan percent off, discounted price, original retail price, discount after a discount. Learn how to play with the formula, going forward and backward. For english, concentrate on grammar and correct spelling. Also learn how words are arranged alphabetically. Learn the rules like how would you arrange if letter is followed by a number, a blank space, or a name. How would you arrange if it's a name with middle initials, composed of initials or full middlename, stuff like that. For logic, normal logic stuff(mathematical sequence, if then statements, images). I forgot the online mock exam url where i got lots of hints pero it was really good. The math, english, and consti questions were really good. It's where I learned the rules for percentage and the alphabetical arrangement.

Marami din nag-ooffer ng reviewers and mock exams nila in ebook format so download read/answer them. Yun lang masheshare ko. I wasn't very comfortable during the exam knowing that I did not prepare. It's not good kasi half of your brain is doubting your answers and only half is thinking. Either it so happened na very fresh pa yung mga sinagutan kong mock exams sa utak ko that's why I passed or I was just so damn lucky.

Joo 3 years ago

I took the Civil Service Exam on May 2012 and I passed, luckily. hehe. But i just would like to share my experience. When I took the exam, I did not have any preparation. I mean when I passed my application, that's it. I waited for the examination day then took the exam. I did not have any review or anything. One thing I can say is, just believe that you can pass the exam. But I can't say that the exam was easy. It was pretty hard, especially the English part of it. I seriously believe that I was not able to get even 50% of the English part. But I'm pretty much confident with the Mathematics part. When I finished answering the test, I said to myself that I have a chance of passing. I was not a hundred percent sure but I can feel that I would make it, and I did. hehe

Napakagandang news na while 88% failed this 2012 Civil Service Exam, still a lot topped this CS Exam. Sana maka share ang mga taong pumasa (11.85%) kun ano dapat gawin or hindi gawin para naman mabigyang pag-asa ang gustong at seryosong pumasa sa CS Exam. Kun may chance pwde ba yong mga pumapasa ey matanong kun: (1) Pwede ba silang mabigyang pagkakataon kun ano mga preparation nila or ginawa nila para makapasa at makatulong din sa iba at kun ano gagawin o hindi gagawin para maka-pasa ang yong gustong pumasa? (2) At sana, gaano ba kahirap o kadali ang exam bakit 1 out of ten ay sya lang pumasa? at (3) Ano kaya ang pwede ma-i advise or suggest nila para matlongan yong maraming gusto pumapasa?

Higit sa lahat laking pasasalamat natin na ang column o b-l-o-g na ito ay nagbibigay galang at recognition sa mga pumapasa at sana ito ring column an ito mka pagbigay paraan para yong gusto ring pumapasa ay mabigyan ng tips para sila’y makakapasa… Salamat sa author ng section na ito. — jae

every year produces thousands of graduates and thousands of passers throughout the country but unemployment and underemployment prevail. There are many graduates who are passers and qualified for career civil service in the government but are still jobless....However, almost/ some government employees are not eligible and just hired because of their backer...... it is unfair !!!!!!!!!


And in lieu to this, the state of the nations economy is struggling developing. Poverty and scarcity is becoming more rampant anywhere because of the system of government that we have now in the Philippines.

Hi! i took Civil Service Exam last 1998 but i was not able to pass because i don't have reviewer that time. And I read only any kind of books English,Mathematics, Science, Social Studies, and most especially abstract reasoning books. That I was brought to national bookstore. So, now i am planning again to take the examination for civil service but my problem is i don't have any reviewer... I just want also to pass the civil service because i want to work in government office and i just want also to apply my knowledge course in midwifery in government hospital. Please help me to pass also and please send to my email address:

Andun na po tayo sa mas madaling nakakapasok kung may backer, but why insist in your place if you can get work outside your province. You can have all the resources just to get the vacancies in any place you want. You can also inquire at you CSC Field Office for vacancies. Don't blame them if they are able to get work with ease, all you have to do is to be persistent in getting a job.

I took civil service examination on October 21, 2012 and fortunately I passed with a rating of 81.77%......... ang mahirap po dun ay ang enlish kasi mga 90 items consists of english.... ang math naman ay halos mga algebraic word problems....... saka ang general information naman ay di naman masyado mahirap, kasi stock knowledge lang ang lumabas, halu- halo eh may constitutions, history, ,,etc.,

There shall be no limit in taking the Career Service Examination, however, taking the same level of examination, Professional or Subprofessional, either through Paper-and-Pencil Test (PPT) or Computer-Assisted Test (CAT) shall be once in every three (3) months only.

in every 3 months daw eh, anu b yun? 3 months after the result?

or 3 months upon filing the form? or 3 month on examination date?

buti after the result after 3mos. din pwde nanamn magtake if di makapsa

The saddest part was, since 2003 pa ako nag a apply sa government but still couldn't had a chance to have one. Wala kasi akong backer. Grabe. How frustrating our government is. Para akong tae, pinagpapasa pasahan lang nila, ang daming employee sa government, wala namn CS but still, andun cla, may mga backer kasi.. tsk.. Anong petsa na, 2012 na.. cguro si Pres Ninoy ang kukunin kong backer para ma in na tlga..

alex 4 years ago

pray and ask for guidance before the exam. believe in yourself. you have to believe that you can pass the exam. start answering the part that you find easy.this will help in warming you up for the more difficult parts. avoid taking too much time answering one question. leave those questions that you don't know the answers and try answering it instead after you have finished and you still have a spare time. guess if you really have no idea of the answer. if time is about to expire and you still have many questions unanswered, just guess, but i would suggest that you pick only one letter as an answer to all the remaining questions.hehe. make sure to thank God for the experience.

I passed both the CS Sub-Prof and CS Prof this year. My tip: READ NEWSPAPERS EVERYDAY, and when I say newspapers I mean broadsheets. Reading newspapers will not only keep you updated and in touch with reality (as opposed to reading tabloids--doing so will send your brain floating somewhere), it will also give you a chance to encounter new words... even new uses for old words! As for the math, just practice on algebra and review the formulas you had in your Economics class.

Good day! =)

Good day sir. I just had a chance to post in your hub again :) Anyway, as I said maybe a year ago that I'm an ECE undergrad, but passed the prof exam, what would be the appropriate government agency or department for me? Currently, I am working in a private BPO company but I feel like I need a new working environment where I can advance and develop in my skills. I'm just afraid to venture into another company considering the fact that I'm an undergrad and most companies are looking for grads. I'm afraid that if I leave my present company, I will have difficulties in finding a new job. Besides, I'm a regular employee already. Can you please give me an advice or thoughts regarding my concern? Thank you sir.

marie 5 years ago

i don't think there is a perfect formula in passing the cs exam, but not reviewing will definitely give you a failing mark. don't rely too much on stock knowledge. chances are it's already rusty or outdated. do not just review just for the sake of reviewing. map your strategy. assess your strengths and weaknesses. focus on your weak points. learn a lot of testing tactics and techniques. Memorize important rules, formulas and concepts. Solve as many problems as you can until you get the hang of it. english is not as easy as i thought. analogy questions are a little bit tricky. beware of eye-catchers. pay close attention to common grammar and usage errors. most common errors are errors in subject-verb agreement, pronoun-antecedent agreement, tense or form of verb, case of a noun or pronoun. Common types of paragraph organizations are chronological order, cause-effect and statement-support. Watch out for key signal words. Given the limited amount of time in the exam, learn to practice the art of skimming and scanning. look for shortcuts. be time conscious. Come to exam well-prepared! Above all pray to GOD!I agree with the author completely-God only helps those who help themselves. good luck guys!

as far as I am concerned, mas mahirap pa yung mga review materials kaysa sa test itself.

Look for Jed Tedor's blogsite at yun mga reviewers nya ang ginamit ko. Thanks Jed!

took the may 22, 2011 exam first time and passed it.


be there early - around 7:00 am, may 3 documents na fifill-up-an, 2 seating and 1 attendance. this help para una ka mag-fill-up at may time na mag-relax.

take a pee before examination - helps you relax more.

take a bottle of water and chew a gum - mahirap ang mag-exam kung tuyo ang lalamunan at gutom, at least yung laway mo magpapabusog sa iyo.

know the time - you can always ask your proctor how much time is left kung walang clock yung kwarto, this will not annoy them. I did this.

take your time - kung may mauna mang magpasa, wag mag-panic, ako nasa 110 pa lang may nagpasa na and there is only 40 minutes left, 60 items left. pero natapos ko lahat with 3 minutes left to review the answers. Kasi nauuna yung mahihirap, the last 20 items masasagot mo on an average of 20 seconds bawat isa (wag mong hulaan kasi practical ang mga sagot).

Erase corrected bubbles completely - kung nag-iba kayo ng sagot tiyaking walang matitirang lead residue from pencil.

Sa test proper:

Allow only up to 2 minutes sa math problems - if it take too long leave it but be sure na meron kang intellectual guess kung hindi mo na sya mabalikan.

make visual aids - i-drawing mo sa scratch yung problem sa math para makatulong i.e. seating arrangement problem, first car to finish the line, what step you are on a ladder, first name-last name. Kasi ang given nakakalito.

sa english - tignan mo sa given kung ano ang naiiba at malamang sa alamang yun ang sagot.

sa sentence chronology - tignan mo kung anong answer ang may pareho ng simula ex. 1. ABCD 2. ACBD 3. BACD 4. CDAB 5. DACB. Siguradong 1 or 2 ang correct.

make sure na mas marami kang sinagot ng tama kaysa hula.

O ayan! papasa ka na nyan...

CORRECT ME IF I'M WRONG...Did you all noticed that the word CIVIL SERVICE comes from the word CIVIL SERVICE?... It was not intended to BOOST your CAREER. It was intended to GIVE AWAY you CAREER for a REASON that is FREE FOR A CIVIL SERVICE!...One Word.."DIVERSION"...:D

I took the exam last May 22.. wala siya masyado current events, marami dun sa last part is about sa constitution.. i'm a polsci graduate so medyo advantage sakin yun... nahirapan lang ako sa analogy part kasi time consuming talaga kaya advice ko is unahin niyo muna yung madaling sagutan para sa inyo.... Ayun.. Godbless! :)

Very useful hub! I learned that Filipinos who graduated with honors (Cum Laude, Magna Cum Laude and Summa Cum Laude) from universities and colleges can apply for government positions without taking the civil service exams.

Hi, im planning to take the CSE this october. It's my first time actually.. but.. di pa pala ako nagpass ng requirements^^,) anyway, thanks po for this.. you're a great blessing to others.. you're such a generous man ^^,) God Bless po.. this will help me.

Girbz 5 years ago

True! Of course, If you devote yourself to God, you also have to do something, like reviewing to make these prayers come true. The answer won't just come instantly, it's you, who are the one could find to have it. He will just help and guide you to find it. Say God Bless rather than Good Luck! :)

heyden 5 years ago

as much as possible magreview ka ng general information katulad ng galing sa consti at yung sa public employees conduct kasi dun sure ka na lalabas talaga sa questions ng civil service exam yung rereviewin mo. ilang points din yun. saka yung mga recent events. as much as possible, aralin mo yung mga at least 1month before ng exam mo na events sa pilipinas.

heyden 5 years ago

took the exam for the first time last 2009 and nailed it with an average of 88%. my advise: answer strategically (answer first the no brainer or short questions, then those that will take time to answer particularly essays and math), dont buy those reviewers in the bookstore (the questions in those wont appear in the exam itself, they are just guidance for the exam format), wear something that is relaxing (dont overdress), have an ample amount of sleep (i didn't had), study d phil constitution and the r.a. (which i forgot) for the proper conduct of government employees, be confident & trust urself, and of course trust god! =) goodluck exam takers!

I passed the CSC Prof CAT yesterday 3/24/11... I got exactly 80%.. I studied for almost 2 weeks and focused on word problems using linear equations, ratio and proportion, rate time distance, and number series as well... RA 6713 and 1987 P.Constitution. All in all I think English is the hardest and really tricky.

I took the CSC professional exam ages ago in 1992. I don't know if the exam has changed drastically since then but the actual exam wasn't as daunting as it seemed to be. With good preparation, prayers and self-confidence, it shouldn't be too difficult to pass. As in anything, enjoy the experience!

@stealth – sorry to hear that… I guess you need another break just keep on applying for better a job.

@ Josephine alejo – I was once work for the government… If I am not mistaken at least college level is good enough as a basic requirement… But there are also some jobs that requires at least a high school diploma.

@ Melvin – all the best

@gretchen – there are reviewers available in National Bookstore near you or even any bookstore.

@ram – that will never happen, hehehe, so if you cannot lick em join em… start reviewing your math and go along well with it.

@wacky – thanks for agreeing with me wacky, you are so kind.

@JVB – whoa, gratz.

@JerryB – that calls for a big celebration, a way to go man.

Sir, does that mean na kahit may eligibility ka, hindi mo pa rin makukuha ang position if walang backer?? So, what's the purpose of taking the exam if kailangan pa rin ng backer? hehehe I'm just wondering. Thanks.

[stealth] 5 years ago

Hello sir. I passed the RO 12 November 16, 2008 professional for just a single take. Well, maybe I'm just lucky enough. LOL! :)Anyway, I just studied the RA 6713 and the 1987 constitution for 2 weeks just reading it repeatedly after I finish reading it. I just had a self study. So, is that a good credential if I would try to apply for a job in the government kahit undergraduate lang ako?
