"The Board is unanimously recommending the extension of the date of the results of May 2018 CPA board examination from May 25 to May 28," the memorandum addressed by PRC BoA Chairman Joel L. Tan-Torres to PRC Commissioner Yolanda D. Reyes stated.

"This is to compensate for the extension of the period of the examinations (the last day was extended from May 20 to 21) and to provide more time for the new examiners (there were three new appointments) to learn the policy and procedures for the deliberation and release," the memo added.
