This coming October 16, 2011 I will be taking a career service examination or the professional civil service exam of Civil Service Commission of the Republic of the Philippines. To tell you honestly, I am not really that interested to take this exam. But because my mother encouraged me so much or should I say forced me well, by telling to me the pros or advantages of passing this exam that’s why I decided to do so. If I pass in this exam, I would be prioritized if I wanted to work in a government based company in which larger amount of salary is expected.
The exam will have 150 items in all. 40 for Verbal, 50 for Analytical, 40 for Numerical and 20 for General Information.
I know you’ll judge me as to be being pessimistic but let me tell you that there is only 30% chance for me to pass. This is not a defense, but I know myself. I know I’m being stupid about it, but 80% is the passing grade of the test and I am not that confident with it. Most especially in terms of numerical ability (well, never mind). Eversince mathematical ability is my weakness.
However, when I think of the positive side, I know it is not also impossible for me to pass. Anyway, we’ll never know and expect maybe I’d get a good score in the other subjects. lol
Q : Did I take a review class for this exam?
A: No. I didn’t and I have no plan. It is because, the exam is so general that I do not know where and what to start studying. I may say that this exam is much more difficult than the other licensing exams because it has its own scope of field however civil service exam is much more general.
So wish me luck people and ofcourse bless me Lord. . .may Your presence guide me and may you provide wisdom and peace of mind.
P.S.- I also pray for my co examinees, my sister and two of my college friends. God bless and good luck guys!
