    Earlier, the Inter-Agency Task Force for the Management of Emerging Infectious Diseases (IATF-EID) approved the request of the PRC to proceed with the scheduled board exams from January to March 2021.

    “The request of the Professional Regulation Commission to conduct and administer the licensure examinations for professionals scheduled for January to March 2021 was approved,” Presidential Spokesperson Harry Roque said in a statement.

    PRC Commissioner Yolanda Reyes said they sought guidance from the IATF especially for LET with more than 170,000 examinees expected to take in March 2021. PRC proposed to divide takers into three batches due to social distancing and other health protocols.

    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.

    7. Each prior day today was loaded up with movement: work, rest, eating, and discretionary exercises. A portion of these discretionary exercises should clear a path to give the time you need to take practice exams, to work issues, to acclimate yourself with your mini-computer and reference books, and to assemble a fast reference organizer. narrative essay outline
