CSC Civil Service Exam Reviewer

The Civil Service Examination is one of the most taken government examinations in the Philippines. In fact, in March 2018 CSE-PPT alone, more than 279,000 examinees took the examination in different testing centers nationwide. It is also one of the most difficult, especially the professional level examination that only 10-12% of the total numbers of examinees pass the examinations. Therefore, we created this Civil Service Exam reviewer to help you prepare for the first-level and second-level Career Service Eligibility Exam. We hope that this civil service exam online reviewer will give you the needed exposure to the actual tests you will take, preparing you psychologically and removes the mental block and nervousness which are deterrent factors in passing the examination.


The Career Service Exam, popularly known as the civil service exam, is administered by the Civil Service Commission for those who are working or planning to work in the government. The exam is conducted multiple times a year through Paper and Pencil Test (CSE-PPT) or Computerized Examination (CSC-COMEX). There are two types of Civil Service Exam, the CSE-Professional and Sub-professional level. The former will grant you the 2nd-Level Eligibility which qualifies you for a second-level position while the latter qualifies you for clerical and custodial service positions in the government.

Civil Service Exam Reviewer and Coverage

The first thing you have to do to pass the examination is to know the examination coverage. It will familiarize you to the actual exam questions and will let you know what you are getting into. If you are taking either the professional or sub-professional level, both have almost the same scope and coverage. The difference is that the sub-professional level has questions on clerical operations to test the person’s knowledge on filing, alphabetizing, and the likes. The professional level exam, on the other hand, includes logic, data interpretation and abstract reasoning.

Review Techniques to Pass the Civil Service Exam

Here are some techniques to prepare yourself for the examination and ensure your success:

  1. Condition yourself that you have to sufficiently and effectively prepare for the examination through a comprehensive review. It is the first step to boost your chances of passing the exam.
  2. Obtain the official objective list or coverage of the examination you are taking. This CSE-PPT online reviewer should outline the major topics and issues that will be covered. Gather review materials and use the practice tests above to maximize your potential to pass.
  3. Divide review materials to be studied into reasonable-sized study blocks that can be completed in a single-study session setting. Two to three-hour study session is the most effective way to review. This time frame maximizes your attention span without pushing you towards mental exhaustion or fatigue. According to some studies, an average human brain can only have a maximum of 3 to 4 hours of absorption. Beyond that, your brain may experience mental fatigue. Limit the number of study sessions to two (morning and another one in the afternoon or evening with breaks in between).
  4. A month of review is highly recommended. Stop the review a few days before the examination day to give yourself the time to relax.
  5. Reserve some of your study block time periods for self-assessment using the practice tests above to test and evaluate your knowledge and preparedness.
  6. Take time to review more on verbal, numerical and analytical skills for these subjects form a substantial 80% of the Civil Service Exams.
  7. Eat nutritious and brain-boosting food to have good memory retention.
  8. Have a good night sleep before the examination and you’re likely to do better. Cramming the night before the exam is a bad idea, for many reasons.
  9. Do not forget to pray and implore for divine guidance, assistance and strength as you go through your review and preparations.

By failing to prepare, you are preparing to fail.- Benjamin Franklin
