Based on the history of LET, the total days before the release of teachers board exam results correlate with the total number of examinees. For example, PRC was able to announce September 2015 and 2016 LET results in about 48 working days due to high number of test takers as compared to other schedules with less than 100,000 examinees.

Note that some calamities or unwanted events which lead to cancellation of government work may add up to the waiting time of examinees. However, PRC has done some upgrades on their system to improve the process of checking the pencil-based examinations.


Same with the previous LET examinations, PRC Board News will constantly update this page for the reliable and relevant information before the "big day" for future educators. Followers of this page may get the exact release date in few days or hours before the release of results.
