Are you planning to take the Civil Service Exam this year? If yes, then yo should have submitted the required documentation needed to push with the exam. This is for the Civil Service Commission (CSC) to validate and check whether or not you are eligible to take it. But what school do you need to go to to take the exam?
Don’t worry, in this article, we will be guiding you as to how you can find out the school assignment for the March 17, 2019 Civil Service Exam.
What is the Civil Service Exam/Assessment again?
The CSC Exam is a form of an assessment to check and validate whether or not a specific person is eligible to be in public service. This test is for people who have the interest in working for the government to serve the public.
To give you a brief refresher, there are two (2) types of CSC exams. The Civil Service Commission Pen and Paper Test (CSC PPT) and the Civil Service Exam Computerized Examination (COMEX).
Both of these exams hold a certain importance but in reality, the Computerized Examination (COMEX) is a simpler way of taking the assessment because a person will not be required to submit a paper with answers on it.
Are there differences in taking the PPT and the COMEX?
Technically, the only difference it holds would be the way an aspiring person wants to take the exam. More so, exams and assessments taken via Pen and Paper Test (PPT) is usually just offered at least twice (2) a year. Requirements to take the PPT would ask applicants to submit documents needed to any CSC Regional Office or Field Office within the application period.
The COMEX, on the other hand, is usually announced through the CSC-COMEX website. Applicants for the COMEX can create an account through their website and as of the moment, the COMEX currently has sixteen (16) testing centers across the Philippines.
I’ve done my application and I am going to take the exam, what school do I need to go to to take the COMEX?
The Civil Service Commission (CSC) currently has an online tool which is called the Online Notice of School Assignment (ONSA) which can be utilized to find out which school a specific applicant needs to go to take the exam.
In order for you to find out how to use the tool, you just need to visit their website at http://enosa.csc.gov.ph/eNOSAv3/. This tool will tell you where your testing center is.
You may find the tool either easy or complex to use because of its user interface. Don’t worry because that specific tool has populated dummy examples in the fields you need to fill out. Let me give you an example:
In this image, you can see that the following information are required from you:
- Last Name
- First Name
- Ext. Name (if you have any)
- Middle Initial
- Date of Birth
These are the personal things that the ONSA tool would need from you in order for them to be able to tell who you are. In addition to that, they also need examination details so you have to populate the following fields:
- Date of Examination
- Type of Examination
- Place of Examination
NOTE: As of the moment, the date of examination accepted by the ONSA tool is only on the 17th of March 2019. However, the CSC made the announcement that they will continuously update the tool to provide service to more people taking the examination on a later date.
Other than the ONSA tool, how else can I know my school assignment for the CSC Exam?
Aside from the online notice of school assignment tool programmed by the CSC, you can call the CSC Regional Office concerned directly and inquire. You would just have to give them the same set of details you are going to give in using the ONSA tool.
The complete directory of the CSC Regional Offices is available in their website. We’ve saved you the hassle of finding it so here you go! Just click on this link here and you will automatically be redirected to the CSC directory.
That is how an applicant can find out the school assignment for the March 17, 2019 CSC examination via the Online Notice of School Assignment tool dedicated to aspiring public workers.
