A total of 12,179 examinees or 17.19 percent passed the Career Service Examination-Pen and Paper Test of the Civil Service Commission (CSC) held last March 13.


In a statement on Monday, May 16, CSC said that this was out of 70,833 actual number of examinees nationwide.

In terms of level of exam, 9,651 out of 56,980 individuals who took the Professional test hurdled the exam, translating to a passing rate of 16.94 percent. The passing rate for the Subprofessional test is slightly higher at 18.25 percent or 2,528 passers out of 13,853 examinees.

Examinees may now check whether they passed the test or not through the CSC website at www.csc.gov.ph. On the right-hand side of the CSC website homepage, the examinee can click on “Examination Result” to access the List of Passers per level of exam and region. Only the names of passers can be searched from the list; if an examinee’s name cannot be found, it means they failed the test.

In terms of region, the highest passing rate was recorded in the Bangsamoro Autonomous Region in Muslim Mindanao (BARMM) with 104 passers out of 321 examinees or 32.40 percent. Caraga came in second with 578 passers out of 2,182 examinees or 26.49 percent, closely followed by the Cordillera Administrative Region (CAR) with 1,110 passers out of 4,245 examinees or 26.15 percent.

The CSC advised passers that they may claim their Certification of Eligibility (printed on CSC letterhead, free of charge) through the CSC Regional Office (RO) or Field Office (FO) by 13 June 2022. They are further advised to check first the availability of their certifications before going to the CSC RO or FO.

Meanwhile, examinees who passed or failed the test can generate their individual test results using the Online Civil Service Examination Results Generation System (OCSERGS) by May 27. No report of rating shall be mailed to individual examinees.
