About 217 applicants have taken the Pre-Qualifying Exams (PQE) of the Department of the Interior and Local Government (DILG) Region IX last March 8, 2018, at Hotel Guillermo, Pagadian City to qualify for a regular position in the department.
The examinees were given questions on logical and abstract reasoning, reading comprehension, mathematics, and analogy to gauge their knowledge and skills. Eighteen applicants have taken the Admin Examination while 199 took the Technical Exam.
Facilitated by DILG Central Office personnel, the exam was 3 hours long and every category was time pressured.
The PQE exam is a requirement of the DILG to be appointed in a regular position aside from passing the Civil Service Exam. Results will be posted within two months and those who passed will be assessed further on.
