THE Civil Service Commission (CSC) has warned the public against review centers that have been assuring examinees high scores.
According to the CSC, these spurious announcements allegedly coming from review class centers guarantee a “90% passing rate.”
The Commission also clarified that it does not endorse nor accredit any review center offering classes to examinees and reiterated that review centers claiming to have been accredited are not in any way connected with CSC.
The CSC said that availing of review classes will be at one’s own risk as it is not a guarantee of passing the CS exams.
The CSC emphasized that the Career Service Examination (CSE) is a general ability test that serves as a basic gauge objectively designed to determine and support the merit and fitness of an individual for government career service.
It is principally founded on the provision of the 1987 Philippine Constitution that appointments in the civil service shall be made only according to merit and fitness to be determined, as far as practicable, and, except to positions which are policy-determining, primarily confidential or highly technical, by competitive examinations.
The CSC advises the public to refer to its official website (csc.gov.ph), its main Facebook Page (fb.com/civilservicegovph), and its regional offices’ Facebook Pages as sources of CSC-related information to avoid consuming and spreading fake news.
