  2. Hi. Hope you’d be able to announce whether May 2020 board exams would push through. Most of us are working already and are planning to take a month leave before the exam. It would be a great help to know if it would be postponed or not for us to be able to retract our leave application if needed. Thank you so much!

  6. I hope PRC would consider postponing the exams for May 2020. This pandemic issue is very stressing that students/examinees cant focus on their review. Also, the cases is still increasing the government might extend the EQC and affect everything including the requirement processing and filing for the exams.

  12. CONSIDER POSTPONING ALL MAY 2020 EXAMINEES THIS IS TOO RISKY FOR THEIR HEALTH. AND NO ASSURANCE OF NO TRANSMISSION OF THE VIRUS. SASAGUTIN PO BA NG PRC ANG KALUSUGAN NG MGA EXAMINEES
