The Civil Service Commission (CSC) has urged professional examinees to consider taking its online examination, as all the pen and paper tests (PPTs) for 2020 had been canceled amid the coronavirus pandemic.
CSC Commissioner Aileen Lizada, however, said not all regional offices are conducting online exams but the agency is now working to strengthen it.
“Availment of the computer exams (Comex) is an option that examinees may consider. However, not all regional offices (ROs) are conducting Comex. In 2019, only eight regional offices conducted Comex: ROs 2,4,6,7,8,10, 11, and Caraga. In 2020, only ROs 4 and 8 have conducted Comex.” Lizada said.
She said the CSC will be issuing an advisory to their ROs to conduct the tests in their regions and for those that are already conducting to increase the number of schedules.
