The CSC started accepting the applications on April 7. Aside from their office, applications could also be submitted to the Robinsons Place in Tacloban every Saturday and Sunday. Applicants need to pay P500 to take the examinations which served as one of the requirements to enter government service. As of end of July, 973 applicants were already listed to take the examinations.

Macasil said that they expect to hit their target of number of applicants before the date of the examinations. “That’s why we put up some desk on Robinsons Mall of Tacloban to accept the applications during Saturdays and Sundays since there are lots of people there to inform them about the upcoming examination,” Macasil added.
