LEGAZPI CITY, Jan. 5 (PIA) – The Bicol region ranked 5th among Top Performing regions in terms of passing rate in the October 18, 2015 Civil Service Commission (CSC) Professional and Sub-Professional Career Service Examination-Paper and Pencil Test (CSE-PPT).

“Collective figures show that Region 5 is among the top performing regions in terms of passing rate in the CSE-PPT held on October 18 last year,” CSC Bicol information officer Lynbee Niebla said.

Bicol notched 12.34% passing rate, ranking 5th among all the other regions in the country.  

The top four are Region 7 (Central Visayas) with 14.28% passing rate, Region 3 (Central Luzon) with 14.02%, Region 4 (Southern Tagalog) with 13.71% and Region 6 (Western Visayas) with 13.43%.

Niebla said a total of 13,152 individuals passed the latest CSE-PPT conducted nationwide.

“This represents the 11.02% of the 119,333 total examinees for the professional and sub-professional levels,” she said.

Moreover, this figure does not include the 56,985 total registered examinees from regions and testing centers in the country affected by typhoon Lando and the haze in Indonesia.

“These areas include Regions 1, 2,NCR and CAR and testing centers in Olongapo City, Cabanatuan City and Bongao, Tawi-Tawi. The examinations in these areas were re-scheduled on December 6, 2015,” Niebla said.

Passers at sub-professional levels are qualified for first level positions in the government while professional level passers may join first and second level positions.

The first level includes clerical, trades, crafts and custodial positions that involve non-professional or sub-prof work requiring less than four years of college studies. Whereas, the second level covers professional, technical and scientific positions up to Division Chief level that involves such work requiring at least four years of college studies.

However Niebla noted that possessing a professional or sub-prof eligibility is just one of the requirements to be able to join government service.

“A civil service eligible, must also meet the education, experience and training requirements appropriate for permanent appointment to a government career service position,” Niebla added. (MAL/SAA-PIA5/Albay)
