ROOM ASSIGNMENTS: March 2024 Civil Service Exam – Professional & Subprofessional Levels




The Online Notice of School Assignment (ONSA) is a documentation or notice that specifies the testing venue or school assignment of an examinee who is scheduled to take the Civil Service Examination.

Our website has compiled an organized list of all the room assignments for all the registered CSE-PPT examinees in all regions who will take the upcoming exam nationwide (check the table below). Meanwhile, examinees can also access their individual ONSA through the official website of the Civil Service Commission (CSC). It is important for examinees to check their assigned testing venue and be present on the examination day to avoid any inconvenience or issues.

Please be reminded that ONSA is released a few weeks before the scheduled examination date. It contains information such as the name of the examinee, the school or venue where the exam will be held, and the room number and seat number assigned to the examinee.

Testing Centers/School Assignments

Examinees’ testing venue or school assignment for the August 2023 CSE-PPT for Professional and SubProfessional levels may be generated using ONSA or the Online Notice of School Assignment. The CSC Regional Offices (ROs) though may also initiate/utilize individual approaches in disseminating information on school assignments of their respective examinees. Examinees may check the availability of ONSA, through the CSC Website at, a week before the exam.
