5 April 2021 - The Civil Service Commission (CSC) warned the public against review centers or individuals/groups offering review classes and reviewers for the Career Service Professional and Subprofessional Examination (CSE).

The CSC has noted that reviewers for career service examinations are being offered and sold in the market, either through bookstores, social media, or online selling websites. There are also claims that the reviewers have been prepared by CSE topnotchers.

“May we advise again the public that the CSC neither holds any review classes nor publishes or distributes any review materials for the Career and any Civil Service examinations. Further, the CSC does not accredit and has not accredited any review center for the purpose of offering and holding review classes to prospective career service examinees,” the CSC said.

It added that availing of such products or services shall be at one’s own risk.

Moreover, the CSC said that it has not given permission to any individual or entity to use its logo in review materials. It also does not sell reviewers or conduct review classes, or give permission to any person or entity to undertake the same. It warned that those who use the CSC logo without express authority, including review centers offering review classes, for profit or for any purpose, may be subjected to criminal prosecution under applicable laws.
