Civil Service Philippine Constitution Reviewer

It is best for you to know and understand the important parts and sections about the Philippine Constitution and Republic Act 6713. Doing so will give you a better chance of passing the CSE test in just one take. Furthermore, having enough knowledge about updates and current events happening in the government will make this part of the test easier for you to tackle.

In my opinion, this part of the Civil Service exam is hard to many examinees. That’s because many of us are not very familiar with the political terms, constitution, civil rights, old and new laws. In that regard, this reviewer will try to cover some of the most common questions for the current events and Philippine Constitution general information. You’re not taking the BAR Exam though, so relax and chill out. You don’t wanna fry your brains out trying to understand the entire thing.
