“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.

PRC and the Boards are also looking for computer-based board exams. "Unfortunately, that is not yet available for this year," he clarified.
