Examinees, both passed and failed, can generate their individual test result through the Online Civil Service Examination Results Generation System (OCSERGS) which can also be accessed at the CSC website, erpo.csc.gov.ph/ocsergs/.
Passers may claim their Certification of Eligibility through the CSC Regional Offices by September 6, 2018. They are advised to access and read thoroughly the corresponding CSC Examination Advisory No. 20, s. 2018, posted on the CSC website, for requirements and procedures in claiming their Certification of Eligibility.
The CSC said the resulting eligibilities—Fire Officer Eligibility and the Penology Officer Eligibility—are both second level eligibilities that are specific and appropriate for second level ranks in the fire protection and jail management and penology services, respectively, and other functionally related services. The appropriateness of these eligibilities, though, does not include ranks under the Philippine National Police, the CSC clarified.
