In preparation for the upcoming exam, the CSC advised examinees to visit the assigned school/testing venue before the examination day to be familiar with the school location. On the examination day, examinees are advised to be as early as 6:00 a.m. for the verification and locating of room assignment. Gates of testing venues will be closed to examinees at exactly 7:30 a.m. and those who will arrive later than 7:30 a.m. will not be admitted. Failure to take the examination on scheduled date shall mean forfeiture of examination fee and slot. Re-scheduling of examination date is not allowed.  

The CSC stressed that only black ball pens are allowed to be used in filling up the answer sheet (gel pen, sign pen, fountain pen, friction pen, or any other kinds of pen, including other colors of ball pen are not allowed). 

The CSC also reminded the examinees to wear proper attire on examination day. Sleeveless shirt/blouse, short pants, and slippers are not allowed.
