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.
