CSC warns exam cheaters
By Rose Palacio
Davao City (19 January) -- The Civil Service Commission (CSC) warned CSC examinees against the use of fraudulent crib sheets or kodigos while taking the CSC-administered career service test.
In CSC National Capital Region office in Kaliraya, reported that more than 10 examinees (in the year 2000) were apprehended for cheating during the CSC-administered tests for Career Professional and Sub-professional exams.
“In every CSC examination center, a surveillance camera is hidden in a secret place to detect cheaters,” Nellie Tirol and Ivy Lou Sarmiento of CSC regional office said during the “ARENA-XI Serbisyo Civil” radio forum aired over DXRP Radyo ng Bayan.
If found guilty, the cheater will be perpetually prohibited from taking other eligibility tests and banned from entering the government service.
To preserve the integrity of the career tests, CSC Chair Corazon Alma de Leon ordered the replenishments of test questions.
Sarmiento announced that CSC Career examinations (pencil and paper) will be announced later adding that “we have yet to receive schedule for the Computer-Assisted Tests” in reply to those clamoring for the CSC career exams using computers.
Marami ang nagtatanong tungkol sa CAT dahil madaling malaman ang resulta ng exams, Sarmiento said.
With CAT, an examinee can just wait for at least 30 minutes and get the result of the exam, but in the pencil and paper CSC career examinations, examinees have to wait for several months before they get the result of the exam. (PIA-RPalacio) [top]
