Civil Service Exam – Philippine Constitution, General Information, Current Events

The Civil Service Exam for Professional and Sub-professional levels also have coverage about Philippine Constitution, Code of Conduct and Ethical Standards for Public officials and Employees based on R.A. 6713.

Also included are peace and human rights issues and concepts, and environment management and protection, General Information and current events, latest and newly enacted laws and environmental issues.

It is best to know and understand the important parts and sections about the Philippine Constitution and Republic Act 6713. Have enough knowledge about updates and current events happening in the government.

Honestly, this part of the exam is kind of hard to many examinees because lots of us are not very familiar with the political terms, constitution, civil rights, old and new laws. Heck, we must know some from now on.

  17. 1987 Philippine constitution
    Section 28 Nr 3: Charitable institutions, churches and personages or convents appurtenant thereto, mosques, non-profit cemeteries and all lands, buildings, and improvements, actually, directly, and exclusively used for religious, charitable or educational purposes shall be exempt from taxation.

    So…. the answer in question nr 10 is none of the above.
    Therefore, the lands and buildings is not sufficient.

    Share lang po.. ty

  29. Suggestion ko po sa lahat ng nais kumuha ng Civil Service Exam, bisitahin nyo po itong site na ‘to, tandaan nyo lang po ung mga hint sa bawat question dito, magkakaron kayo ng malaking chance na pumasa. ‘Wag nyo po masyado ipressure ung sarili nyo na saulohin lahat mas maigi kung maiintindihan nyo ung mga question kasi napakaiksi lng ng oras sa exam. Almost 60% ay math, more on fractions and sequence of nos, problem solving and etc. During the exam the exam mas mainam kung may chocolate kayo para sharpen up ung mind nyo po kasi nakakagutom mgtake ng exam kasi mahirap talaga. Then, kung medyo hirap kayo sa math search kayo sa internet pano ba mgsolve nito, hindi nyo kailangang magpakapuyat all you have to do is to relax and take it easy. GOODLUCK!!!!

    Thanks Madam for sharing this reviewer


  34. “Work as if everybody depends on You ..and Pray as if everything depends to God”..

    This coming October 26, 2014 I will also take CSE for the second time.
    I really want to work in Govt Agency that’s why I decided to apply again. The last time I took the exam, I knew that I will fail cause I finished not all the questions due to time pressure. The exam started exactly 8am until 11am. The alloted time seems enough pero hindi mo mamamalayan, patapos na pala yung 3hours. Kapag natatagalan sa isang tanong, move agad sa susunod, balikan nalang para hindi maubusan ng oras.. Isa pang pagkakamali ko is sa sobrang excite ko, nagkamali ako ng shade sa applicant test permit number which is very important sa lahat. Kahit anong bura ko at palit ng tamang shade, alam ko mag eerror din yun sa machine kaya advise ko pati narin sa sarili ko— RELAX LANG AT BE CAREFUL.


    Nung hindi ako nakapasa, umiyak ako pero hindi ko sinisi ang Diyos.
    Umiyak ako kasi dapat i-hi-hire na ko sa Government Agency na inapplyan ko for regular position. Inantay lang yung result.
    Pero nung lumabas na nga yung result at failed ako, nag-apply agad ako sa iba at kinabukasan start na agad ako sa FIRST JOB ko. 🙂

    I pray makapasa tayo lahat ! God bless us all ! I love you with the Love of the Lord !
