Most of the PRC board exams in 2020 were cancelled due to the COVID-19 pandemic and in line with the mandate of the government to prohibit mass gatherings that may spread coronavirus infections.

In October, PRC said they are preparing for technology-based examination or online/computerized board exams.

“We might be able to start with the smaller boards, which will be more manageable,” PRC Chairman Teofilo Pilando Jr. said during the Senate hearing.
