Claim Your Career Service Eligibility – Preference Rating (CSE-PR)

The Civil Service Commission (CSC) supports the national government in fulfilling its commitment to assist eligible Contract of Service (COS) and Job Order (JO) workers in obtaining the necessary eligibility for permanent positions in the government by issuing the Career Service Eligibility – Preference Rating (CSE-PR).

Civil Service Exam Preference Rating

This initiative stems from President Ferdinand R. Marcos Jr.’s directive during a sectoral meeting with the Department of Budget and Management, the Department of the Interior and Local Government, the Commission on Audit, and the CSC. The aim is to boost the skills and capabilities of COS and JO workers, empowering them to successfully pass the career service examinations, a prerequisite for pursuing career service positions.

CSC Chairperson Karlo Nograles explained that the CSE-PR is granted to eligible workers who have served for at least 10 years and have demonstrated valuable skills but lack specific eligibility for plantilla positions.

It covers workers collectively called the JOCOSC6 in the government service. These include individuals under JO, COS, Casual, Contractual, and Coterminous employees holding Category III and Category IV positions as enumerated in CSC Memorandum Circular No. 10 dated 16 April 2013, and Career service employees with first-level eligibility.

“The CSC recognizes that many dedicated government employees, who have played a pivotal role in delivering public service over the years, do not possess the necessary civil service eligibility. Following the President’s directive, the CSC shall assist these qualified workers in various government agencies in their application for CSE-PR, enabling them to pursue plantilla positions,” added Chairperson Nograles.

Under CSC Resolution No. 2301123 promulgated on 7 December 2023, a Preference Rating of a maximum of 10 points shall be added to the failed rating range (70.00 to 79.99) to achieve the passing rate of 80.00 for qualified applicants in career service examinations, thereby qualifying them for Career Service Professional or Subprofessional eligibility.

To qualify, applicants need to have accumulated a minimum of 10 years of service in the government as JOCOSC6, along with a performance rating of at least Very Satisfactory or its equivalent in the two (2) most recent rating periods before the application date for eligibility.

Chairperson Nograles reminded that JOCOSC6 individuals interested in availing the CSE-PR must have applied for and taken the scheduled CSE beginning with the 3 March 2024 CSE and thereafter, at either Professional or Subprofessional levels, and obtained a failing general rating not lower than 70.00.

Lastly, the application for the grant of CSE-PR must be filed using the appropriate application form with complete requirements within six (6) months from the date of release of the results of the career service examination taken.
