It's also possible that PRC will release results on earlier date than our expected timeline if there's an improvement in the PRC system of checking of results.
December 26, 2015 Update: Dr. Carl Balita, a reliable source in terms of exact release date of nursing board exam results posted a riddle on Facebook: "The Mountain SeaGoat exits a dozen dawns from the day that the dream and the dreamer become ONE...." Exam takers have interpreted the riddle with January 8, 2016 as the judgment day. The 'mountain Seagoat' pertains to Zodiac symbol for Capricorn (December 22-January 20). The dozen (12) is being subtracted from the last day (20) with the result of 8 (Friday, January 8).
