The Civil Service Commission warned the public Monday against a fake online announcement from a review class that claims to “guarantee 90 percent passing rate.”
The CSC said that it does not endorse or accredit any review center offering classes to examinees.
It also clarified that review centers claiming to have been accredited are not in any way connected with the commission.
“Availing of review classes will be at one’s own risk as it is not a guarantee of passing the Civil Service (CS) exams,” the CSC said in a statement.
The CSC explained that the Career Service Examination (CSE) is a general ability test that serves as a basic gauge objectively designed to determine and support the merit and fitness of an individual for government career service principally founded on the provision of the 1987 Philippine Constitution.
It added that the appointments in the civil service will be made only according to merit and fitness to be determined, as far as practicable, and, except to positions which are policy-determining, primarily confidential or highly technical, by competitive examinations.
The CSC advised the public to refer to its official website csc.gov.ph and official Facebook page: fb.com/civilservicegovph and its regional offices’ Facebook pages as sources of legitimate information to avoid spreading false news.
