The Civil Service Exam in the Philippines also includes quizzes about correct spelling, examples of idiomatic expressions and their meanings.
There are also given questions about choosing the correct spelling of words or selecting the misspelled one. In my honest opinion, spelling is the most challenging exam since words seem to spell correct and you are just choosing from a given set of words. Sometimes there is also an option for “none” or all “are correct.”
This part of the exam is very tricky considering the words may look familiar and common but their spellings are confusing. Often you may think you already know the correct spelling, yet you may be wrong. That’s why we provided the most confusing words with correct spellings here.
We’re giving some of the words usually given for this type of test. Review them well and master them by heart.
committee separate melancholy
occasion license oxymoron
knowledgeable liaison execute
acknowledgment receipt zoologist
meringue anonymous withdrawal
queue yacht vacuum
spontaneous whimsical privilege
malicious accessible nuisance
commission continuous nauseous
eccentric ecstasy lingerie
rhythm fluorescent judgment
accommodate ambiguous hemorrhage
embarrass turquoise equilibrium
maintenance occurrence dilemma
conscience mayonnaise bizarre
etiquette Mediterranean assimilate
bourgeoisie grotesque hygienic
dearth irresistible jeopardy
luscious negligible omniscience
pandemonium quintessential rendezvous
