Things to Remember

  • To standardize/rationalize the number of FO1 applicants who will proceed to the next stage of hiring, the “Quota x 2” per region will be implemented. For example, if the approved quota for Region 3 is 100, and the total number of examinees is 400, then 100 x 2= 200. This means only 200 out of 400 examinees will be allowed to take the next stage of the selection process.
  • For ranking purposes, the following criteria with the corresponding maximum percentage points will be observed:
    • Qualifying Written Examination- 40%
    • Physical Agility Test – 30%
    • Panel Interview – 30%
  • The DILG and BFP Regional Officers will post the results of the qualifying written exam on their websites on May 31, 2019.
