Congratulations to those who passed the Civil Service Exam last March 2008. The results were released this month and the Inquirer is reporting that our region recorded the highest passing rate (19.64%) which is ten percentage points higher than the national passing rate (9.99%). Not bad, boondock dwellers, not bad at all 🙂
For the list of CS Prof and Sub-Prof passers from the Cordilleras, here’s the link.
Here’s the Inquirer report:
MANILA, Philippines — The Cordillera Administrative Region (CAR) has produced the highest number of passers in the recent civil service exam held March 9, with a 19.64 percent passing rate, the Civil Service Commission (CSC) said on Tuesday.
Results of the latest civil service exam showed that out of the more than 52,000 examinees, only 5,286 passed, or 9.99 percent, nationwide for the Career Service Professional and Sub-professional written examinations.
Although CAR produced the highest number of passers, the exam topnotcher, Christine T. Battung, was from Cagayan Valley. Battung garnered a rating of 91.15, while sub-professional level topnotcher Nicole P. Victoria from the National Capital Region (NCR) had a final rating of 95.84.
Passers of the civil service exam will be conferred with either professional eligibility or the sub professional eligibility, a requirement for those who wish to work for a specific position in government, the CSC said.
But passers will still have to meet three qualification standards for a specific position, CSC said. These standards are education, experience, and training.
CSC revealed that majority of passers was unemployed, which numbered to 2,908. Passers from the private and public sector numbered 1,105 and 1,003 respectively, CSC said.
More than 3,700 passed the Professional level, while 1,496 passed in the Sub-professional level.
CSC said that top choices for government work included accounting, human resource development, management and audit analysis, computer operations, report writing, and public relations for the professional level. The top choices of work for the sub-professional level are computer operation, word processing, book keeping, general clerical, typing, clerical accounting, and cashiering.
