Tips and Pointers to Pass the Civil Service Examination (CSE) Pro and Sub-Pro Levels

Written By Jane Miranda on Saturday, June 25, 2011 | Saturday, June 25, 2011


The Civil Service Examination that is given in the Philippines is indeed a tough nut to crack; the passing rate over the years had dipped drastically, no thanks to the high 80% mark, one should hurdle. The average passing rate is somewhere from 8% to 30%, and this makes the test formidable and prestigious. Why not? Passing the examination will give a potential government employee or current employee that hasn’t pass the examination yet the rights to get a permanent job in the government, and gain access to promising privileges like promotions and salary increases. 

This acid test proves to be very difficult for most since it can be likened to an IQ test where accumulated knowledge from the field of Mathematics to the English Language may play a vital role in passing. 

Being an English speaking country, the English language is given great importance in the test. Reading Comprehension, sentence structure, and vocabulary forms a good portion of the examination. 

One of the greatest obstacles in passing the examination is the Mathematics part of the examination, since this offers a lot of solving employing various techniques in solving progressions, linear equations, ratio and proportions and many more.

Here are some important and practical ways, tips and pointers to maximize your chances of passing and overcoming the CSC exam.

Gather as many review materials as you can, the most current the better. Look for review materials that are teeming with typical test questions that are similar to the actual examination. 

Review, review and review. Your future is at stake here, and it is wise to use your time very well. Review without let up as much as possible. Moreover, the exam calls for storing knowledge, constant reading and math problems solving. This is a marathon game and only the well-prepared ones are bound to pass. Superior IQ will not guarantee you a passing score.

Don’t rely on prayers and luck. God only helps those who help themselves. Be realistic, you are up against a real examination and faith without hard work is useless. Additionally, passing the exam with pure guesswork is a disaster. You already flunked the exam even with out lifting your pencil if you take the examination without preparations.

There is no way you can pass the examination without hurdling Mathematics first. It is true that this subject is difficult and there is no doubt about that. But there is always a way to tame this subject and that is with patience and practice. Solve as many problems as possibly you can. 

Math has something to do with getting experience and maturity, the more you solve problems the better you can be. Don’t memorize solutions but be familiar with the principles and concepts. The only thing that is memorized in mathematics are the formulas. Be spontaneous with your solutions; make sure that your answers emanates from your mind. Many hate this subject very much, but if you are good on this, your chance of passing is already bolstered.

If you can afford to shell out some fee to get the help of an expert tutor, go ahead. This move will give you an outright edge since you will get good answers about some of your questions with your reviews.

Ask previous test takers about what are being asked in the recent examination they took. This gives you the trend and possibly the style of the test givers.

While you reviews make sure you are eating well and getting ample rest and sleep.If you are healthy you are capable of storing more knowledge that are vital in passing the test.
Before the examination, be sure you know your room assignment. Avoid being late since the examination contains many questions. Missing some time because of tardiness, might prevent you from not answering some of the questions or prevent you from from giving the best answers.

During the examination make sure you are calm. Avoid being nervous and intense, it is understandable to be pressured but this will not serve you well as time goes by. Hold your nerves will yah, and answer every question to the best of your abilities. To be efficient with your time, answer the easy ones first, you can afford to leave some questions unanswered, but be sure you’ll set at least 15 minutes before the time limit to answer all of the questions that are being asked.
