The Civil Service Commission (CSC) has set 13 schedules of the Computerized Career Service Examination (COMEX) for the first half of 2019.
There will be nine (9) examinations to be conducted at the CSC Central Office in Batasan Hills, Quezon City and four (4) exam schedules for the regional offices.
CSC COMEX is the computerized mode of administration of the Career Service Examination in addition to the traditional pen and paper test held twice a year.
The CSC Central Office will hold COMEX on January 29; February 12; March 26; April 23, 30; May 15, 21; and June 11 for professional level and on Feb. 19 for subprofessional level. For the CSC Regional Offices, the COMEX is set on April 11, May 9, and June 7 for professional level and on Feb. 21 for subprofessional level. Online reservation opens four (4) working days prior to the date of examination and starts at 10:00 a.m. for Central Office and 8:00 a.m. for Regional Offices.
Examination schedules under the CSC Regional Offices only include CSC ROs joining the scheduled date of examination. The CSC strongly advises the applicants to check the “Testing Center and Personal Appearance Venue” indicated in the Examination Schedule page before making a reservation.
The CSC reminds applicants that the number of examination slots is very limited, thus, may be taken and filled up in a matter of minutes. In the event that the slot counter reached a negative count, all affected examinees will no longer be accepted.
As a rule, applicants must not have taken the same level of Career Service Exam being applied for, either through the Pen and Paper Test (PPT) mode or the Computerized Examination (COMEX) mode, within three (3) months before the date of examination.
To apply for COMEX, an individual must create a user account in the COMEX website, www.comex.csc.gov.ph/user. Once activated, the user will have access to the Examination Schedules and may reserve an examination slot through the COMEX Reservation website (erpo.csc.gov.ph/comexreservation/user).
Once a reservation has been made, an applicant should personally submit an original and photocopy of a valid I.D. card and pay the examination fee of Php680.00 to the designated CSC Office on the scheduled date and time. Accepted I.D. cards are Driver’s License/Temporary Driver’s License (LTO O.R. must be presented together with old Driver’s License; O.R. alone is not allowed)/Student Driver’s Permit; Passport; PRC License; SSS I.D.; GSIS I.D. (UMID); Voter’s I.D./Voter’s Certification; BIR/Taxpayer’s I.D. (ATM type/TIN card type with picture); PhilHealth I.D.
