A total of 25,090 or 11.42 percent out of 219,697 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 March 12, 2017 Career Service Professional and SubProfessional examinations through the CSC website www.csc.gov.ph, April 21.


Only the List of Passers posted on the CSC website is official, the CSC stressed as it disclaims liability for any other postings 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 CSC said, the new Professional eligibles can be appointed to first level (clerical, trades, crafts and custodial service) and second level (professional, technical and scientific up to division chief) positions in the government career service that do not involve practice of profession and are not covered by special laws. The SubProfessional eligibles, on the other hand, can be appointed only to first level positions. Aside from eligibility, an aspirant for a government career service position must further meet education, experience and training requirements of the position, stressed the CSC. Moreover, applicants to government posts may 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 a vacant position.
