How long does it take to get the civil service exam result?

Last Updated on

A. Paper and pencil test (CSC-PPT) or ballpen-based exam.

Due to the nature of the exam, CSC-PPT takes longer to generate results.

On average, the official List of Passers is uploaded/posted on the CSC website within 41 days after the examination.

The Examination Rating, on the other hand, won’t be available until approximately 15 days after the List of Passers is released.

You can get your Examination Rating using the Online Civil Service Examination Result Generation System (OCSERGS) which can also be accessed through the CSC website.

As proof that you have really passed the exam, a Certification of Eligibility will be given to you approximately 30 days after the release of the official List of Passers on the CSC website.

To claim your Certification of Eligibility, go to your respective CSC Regional Office and present the following:

a. Application receipt (if available).

b. At least one valid I.D., preferably the same identification card you presented during filing of your application regardless if it has already expired or not. Otherwise, you can just show any valid I.D. provided that it’s valid or not yet expired.

The valid ID must have your name, clear picture, date of birth, your signature, and signature of issuing agency’s current head or representative. Only the following valid IDs are acceptable:

  • Driver’s License.
  • GSIS ID.
  • Philhealth ID.
  • Company or School ID.
  • Postal ID.
  • BIR ID.
  • Barangay ID.
  • Police Clearance.
  • Voter’s ID.
  • Passport.

Personal appearance is required as CSC won’t allow representatives to claim your Certification of Eligibility. You may also call your CSC Regional Office for other specific requirements that aren’t included above.

On the other hand, those who have failed the civil service exam can get a copy of their Report of Rating through the CSC website. Before you can obtain it, you will be required to enter the following information:

  • Name.
  • Date of Birth.
  • Examinee Number.
  • Examination Type.
  • Examination Date.

B. Computerized examination (COMEX).

The advantage of taking the computerized civil service exam is you’ll be able to get the test result relatively quicker.

Just like in the traditional paper-and-pencil test, the results of the COMEX will also be posted on the CSC website. This time, the official List of Passers is released only one week after the exam.

Passers will be issued Certification of Eligibility while those who have failed may request for their Report of Rating through the CSC website.
