How to Apply for COMEX

Interested applicants for the CSC Computerized Examination must create a user account in the COMEX website. Once activated, the user will have access to the Examination Schedules and may reserve an examination slot.

To create an account on the COMEX website, please follow the instructions below:

  1. Access the COMEX website at using a computer with a good internet connection.
  2. Click the Sign-up Now button on the left side of the screen.
  3. You will be met by an SSL privacy error. Click the Advanced button then click the Proceed to (unsafe) link.
  4. Fill-out the online registration form. Use a valid e-mail address that you can access. Then submit your information by clicking the submit button.
  5. Check your e-mail account for the system confirmation e-mail. If you can’t find the confirmation e-mail in your inbox, check the spam folder.
  6. Activate your COMEX user account by clicking the activation link. It will redirect you the COMEX website.
  7. Log-in to the system using your registered username and password.
  8. Click the Examination Schedules tab then reserve an examination slot.

Set your exam reservation quickly because the slots for the examinations are limited and may be taken and filled up in a matter of minutes. If you are taking the COMEX in any of the CSC Regional Offices, check the “Testing Center and Personal Appearance Venue” indicated in the Examination Schedule page before making a reservation. If you can not access the website, it may be caused by traffic congestion due to simultaneous access of applicants. When this happens, just reset your internet connection, refresh your browser then try again.

COMEX Qualifications and Requirements

Any applicant who wants to take the COMEX must NOT have taken the same level of examination being applied for either through Civil Service Exam– Pen and Paper Test (CSE-PPT) or the COMEX mode, within 3 months before the date of the exam.

  • For applicants who are holding dual citizenship under R.A. No. 9225, submit an original and photocopy of Certification and Retention/Re-acquisition of Philippine Citizenship issued by the Bureau of Immigration.


The examination fee is Php 600.00 plus an additional Php 80.00 as a service fee for digital information (photo, signature, and biometric fingerprints).

Test Results and Issuance of Certificate

The COMEX results shall be available within one (1) week after the examination and shall be posted on the CSC website. The Commission shall issue the Certificate of Eligibility within one week after the examination. However, the period of posting of the list of passers and the availability of the certificate may be extended as necessary in the light of possible system technical problem.
