The Anti-Cheating Law

The CSC uses a highly reliable system to detect cheats. Examinees are strongly warned that any form of cheating in any civil service examination shall be considered a violation of Republic Act No. 9416, which shall be a basis for the filing of an administrative case and/ or criminal prosecution.

The forms of cheating are, as follows:

  1. Use of crib sheets or “codigo”;
  2. Impersonation;
  3. Employing a “poste” or a person inside or outside of the examination room who may not be an examinee but provides examinees with answers;
  4. Collusion of whatever nature between examinees and examination personnel;
  5. Examinee number switching;
  6. Possession and/ or use fake Certificate of Eligibility;
  7. Such other acts of similar nature which facilitate the passing of examination.

Any person convicted of any crime involving any form of cheating shall be meted the penalty of imprisonment from six (6) to twelve (12) years and a fine of not less than Fifty Thousand Pesos (P50,000.00).

Apart from imprisonment and fine, offenders who are in government service shall be administratively liable for Dishonesty and Grave Misconduct and will be imposed the penalty of dismissal from the service with all its accessory penalties of forfeiture of retirement benefits except leave credits earned and personal contributions to the GSIS, if any, cancellation of eligibility, bar from taking any Civil Service Examination, and perpetual disqualification from re-entering the government service. On the other hand, private individuals shall be perpetually barred from entering the government service and from taking any Civil Service examination.

Suspending the Conduct of Civil Service Examinations in Times of Calamities.

The CSC, in time of calamities (natural or man-made), may suspend the conduction of examination. Such suspension may be partial, or full (either at the regional, or national level) based on assessment of conditions as support by reports issued by authorized government agencies as well as multi-media reports.

In any such event, the CSC shall immediately issue related directive and post an Examination Advisory on the CSC website The CSC Regional Offices shall likewise post the advisory on their respective websites, as applicable. Press Release shall be issued and all efforts exerted to disseminate information, including use of social media.

The Career Service Professional Eligibility is appropriate for occupations at the first and second levels of government that do not need professional practice and are not protected by other legislation. On the other hand, the Sub-Professional Eligibility is only appropriate for first-level government positions that do not require professional practice and are not otherwise governed by other laws.

The creation of a Registry of Eligibles is the major objective of the CSE-PPT exam (RoE). Except for those positions that require professional practice and are subject to specific laws, this register will serve as the basis for certification and appointment to first- and second-level positions in the civil service. The candidates must also fulfill all other qualifications and job requirements.
