To answer his questions, let us first find out what P.D. 907 is all about.
Presidential Decree 907
- Graduated in a private higher education institution in the Philippines with baccalaureate/bachelor’s degree recognized by the Commission on Higher Education (CHED) or a state/local college or university with baccalaureate/bachelor's degree included in its charter, or baccalaureate/bachelor's degree duly approved by its Board of Trustees/Board of Regents.
P.D. 907 is also known as "Granting Civil Service Eligibility to College Honor Graduates". The Honor Graduate Eligibility (HGE) apply to those who:
- Graduated summa cum laude, magna cum laude or cum laude in their bachelor degree or baccalaureate degree.
- Graduated from school year 1972-1973 onwards.
As for the followup question, here's what the law says about it. Under the "Appropriateness of HGE" clause, the HGE shall be "considered appropriate for first and second level positions in the government that do not involve practice of profession and are not covered by Bar/board/other special laws."
To wrap up, here are tagertz16's questions again and their answers:
Can you use P.D. 907 Eligibility when applying to Philippine government agencies? -- Yes!
Can you use P.D. 907 Eligibility when applying for a second-level position in the government? -- Yes IF those positions do not involve practice of profession and are not covered by the Bar/board or other special laws.
I hope this post helped you tagertz16 and all others who have the same questions. If you have any other questions or comments, please don't hesitate to write them below. I'll try to go over and answer them.
Thanks! Have a great day y'all! :)
