Note: The number of examination slots available for online reservation is very limited. Slots may be taken and filled up in a matter of minutes. We strongly encourage those who were able to reserve a slot and later decide not to pursue taking the test to cancel their reservation online  in order for others to be able to take the slot.

The documentary requirements (link) will be presented during personal appearance before the designated CSC Office on the scheduled date and time.


Examination fee is P600 and service fee for digital information is P80, so the total fee for COMEX is P680. Test results including issuance of Eligibility Card for passers, shall be available within one (1) week after the examination.

What is the difference between the Paper-and-Pencil Test (PPT) and the COMEX?

A: The difference between the PPT and COMEX are 1) the manner of filing of application, 2) the examination fee, 3) the manner of taking the examination, and 4) the number of days test results are released.

In the PPT, application is filed personally in any CSCRO while in COMEX, the application begins when an applicant reserved an examination slot and is completed when the applicant confirmed his/her reservation during personal appearance at the Testing Center.

The examination fee is P500 and P600 for the PPT and COMEX, respectively.

With regard to manner of taking the test, examinees in PPT read the test question from a test booklet and record their responses on an answer sheet. On the other hand, examinees in COMEX read the test questions from computer screen and record their answers on the computer through the keyboard.

  13. Florence Florence March 23, 2018

    Ive tried sending an email po sa [email protected], the one in your website po, and for some reason, nag bounce back po email ko.

    Anyway po, I just have some questions po for clarifications:

    (1) Upon signing up for the exam, I was not able to come across the requirements needed to take the exam. Would just want to clarify, again, if there are requirements to prepare before signing up for a schedule and taking the exam on the day of schedule?
    Through this link, ang nakita ko lang po is 4 passport size pictures and valid IDs.
    Is that also for CSC COMEX takers po?

    (2) Lastly, I would like to ask if there are any other procedures needed, or required additional documents for those Filipino citizens but are not born here in the Philippines.

    Looking forward to your response.
    Thank you very much!

    I would like to ask for your assistance in this matter.

    Thanks and best regards
