The picture should show the applicant’s bare face without eyeglasses or any accessory that may cover facial features, and a hand-held written name tag legibly showing the applicant’s signature over printed full name.

Two pieces of the I.D. picture should be pasted on the appropriate spaces in the form, and the remaining two pictures should be attached at the upper left portion of the form.

Applicants should then pay the registration fee of PHP1,500.00 via bank or remittance/payment centers. Payment should be directed to the Civil Service Commission through the following details:

Only paid applicants will be processed and included in the final list of examinees for the CSE-PPT in Hong Kong.

After payment, applicants should proceed to POLO-Hong Kong and submit the fully accomplished CS Form No. 100 with the pasted and attached I.D. pictures, a photocopy of their valid Philippine passport (photo page only) or valid Hong Kong Identity Card or valid Macau Identification Card, and a photocopy of the bank deposit slip or proof of payment. 

Applicants should remember to keep with them a photocopy of the accomplished form, the original valid Philippine passport or valid Hong Kong Identity Card or valid Macau Identification Card, and the original bank deposit slip or proof of payment. These documents will be presented for verification during the actual day of the exam.

The CSE is a general ability test designed to measure an individual’s preparedness to enter government service. Passing the CSE entitles one to either a Professional or Sub-professional eligibility which is one of the requirements for permanent appointment to career positions in government, apart from education, experience, and training.

The eligibility resulting from passing the Professional level exam is called the Career Service Professional Eligibility. It is a second level eligibility appropriate for both first level (clerical) and second level (technical) positions in the government that do not involve practice of profession and are not covered by special/other laws.   

The eligibility resulting from passing the Sub-professional level exam is called Career Service Sub-professional Eligibility. It is a first level eligibility appropriate only for first level (clerical) positions in the government that do not involve practice of profession and are not covered by special/other laws.
