PRC postpones September 2020 board exams: LET, REE, among others

PRC postpones September 2020 board exams: LET, REE, among others

PRC specifically cited government imposed restrictions and other unforeseeable circumstances because of extended community quarantines.

The postponement of the exam is to ensure as well the health and safety of the PRC examinees, Professional Regulatory Boards (PRBs) and examination personnel.

The conduct of the following scheduled September 2020 licensure examinations is hereby POSTPONED:
  • Licensure Examination for Foresters (September 1 – 2, 2020)
  • Licensure Examination for Registered Electrical Engineers (September 4 – 5, 2020)
  • Licensure Examination for Registered Master Electricians (September 6, 2020)
  • Librarians Licensure Examination (September 8 – 9, 2020)
  • Licensure Examination for Respiratory Therapists (September 15 – 16, 2020)
  • Licensure Examination for Professional Teachers (September 27, 2020)
  • Agricultural and Biosystems Engineeers Licensure Examination (September 29 – 30, 2020)


The said licensure examinations will be rescheduled in 2021.

"Examinees are advised to check the PRC official website and social media accounts for important updates," the regulating agency said.

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.

Do you agree to push through the conduct of Licensure Exam for Teachers (LET) in September 2020?
