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; 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.

  2. thanks a lot to you,because i passed the career service exam ,this will change my life.God bless you…

  3. 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!!!!

  4. Hi ma’am, thank you sa previous reviewer na inimail mo almost there lumabas ang naging mali ko lang di ako nag review doon…nagtake ako last oct 26,2014 but unfortunately i did not pass….na published na ang result kagabi sobra akong nanghinayang kasi ang reviewer na bigay mo na share ko sa iba at lahat sila pumasa basi doon sa ibinigay mong reviewer… many times na ako nagtake pls help me to pass may CS exam maybe march or april ang schedule ng exam…pls….pls , give me one more chance for the last time I will past surely the exam base doon sa ibibigay mong reviewer at sana yan ang lalabas during the exam. Thank you God Bless us all.

  5. Hi rap talaga ng professional exam last October sa lahat ng na review ko yung 2/3 majority Lang sa constitution and Nakita kong lumabas sa exam. DI ako umaasa pa na pumasa try ko na lang sa sub prof yun and suggestion ng nag bantay samen

  6. Hello po. Is there any other way of paying the PDF file of Civil Service reviewer? Im planning to take a civil service exam, please help me. Thank you 🙂 God Bless.

  7. Good day,

    Salamat sa reviewer itoy malaking tulong sa akin hoping this coming october 26, 2014
    i passed this civil service examination dahil itong lang talaga ang anaantay para maka pasok ako sa public employment..

    Please Oh God help me coz without u is nothing.

    Thanks Madam for sharing this reviewer


  8. “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 !

    *Thanks Madam for sharing this reviewer 😀
