In an earlier news release posted on 13 June 2023, the CSC announced that 64,420 examinees passed the CSE-PPT held on 26 March. A total of 54,478 or 16.42 percent out of 331,816 examinees passed the Career Service Professional Examination, while 9,942, representing 19.97 percent of the 49,791 examinees, passed the Career Service Subprofessional Examination.

Examinees who passed the CSE Professional Level are conferred with the Career Service Professional Eligibility, a requirement for permanent appointment to both first level (clerical) and second level (technical) positions in the career service which do not involve the practice of profession and are not covered by the Bar, board and other laws.

On the other hand, the Subprofessional Eligibility shall be appropriate to first level positions only.

The CSC reminds that eligibility alone does not guarantee appointment in government service as education, experience, training, and other competency requirements of the positions must also be met.
