UPDATE2021 PRC board exam schedule

Recently, PRC discussed the issues and gave recommendations for the conduct of September 2020 board exams and remaining tests this year.

PRC Chairman Teofilo Pilando Jr. said nine examinations set for September 2020 and emphasized the following issues:
  • availability of the examination venues
  • exam personnel
  • ever changing dynamic changes in the situation as defined by IATF
“The Commission and the Boards made some recommendations, one of which would be prioritization of the small scale examinations for the remaining part of the year, meaning those that would involve 1,000 more or less examinees,” Pilando said.
