  1. Pano po pag na lift Yung quarantine tuloy po ba ang exam? Wala po bang recovery period ang prc. It's too risky po kc for us takers kung sakaling tuloy tapos in times of recovery we can't actually tell if it's totally safe to conduct mass gatherings. Because we can't say that in a short period of time it's finally "OK". Hope prc will consider this. Thanks and God bless. CE examinee here.

  2. After the ECQ is lifted, are all licensure examinations slated on July onwards to push through as scheduled?

  3. How about po Yong mga magrerenew ng license po still lockdown pa rin po ang mga boarders sa mga karatig na Lugar dito sa mindanao pahirapan po ng pagpasok sa Davao
