Examinees are asking whether the August 2021 Architecture Licensure Exam (ALE) will be cancelled or postponed. This was after the recently imposed Enhanced Community Quarantine (ECQ) in Metro Manila, Laguna, Iloilo, among other cities/provinces.
PRC has recently postponed the licensure exams for August 2021 in the National Capital Region (NCR) including those of Mining Engineering and Veterinary Medicine pursuant to the Inter-Agency Task Force for the Management of Emerging Infectious Diseases (IATF-MEID) Resolution No. 130-A (s. 2021) and PRC Resolution No. 1392 (s. 2021).
With these recent announcements, it is likely that the August 2021 Architect board exams will also be postponed/cancelled in areas involved should IATF extends the ECQ.
The board exam for Architects is scheduled on August 27-29, 2021 at NCR, Baguio, Cebu, Davao, Koronadal, Iloilo, Legaspi, Lucena, Pampanga, Tacloban, and Zamboanga.
Several board exams scheduled on first quarter of 2021 were cancelled and re-scheduled to third and fourth quarter (see below) due to COVID-19 pandemic. However, there were also licensure exams that pushed through following a strict health and safety protocols imposed by the commission. Among are the board exams for Medical Technologists/ MTLE, Social Workers, Veterinarians and Physicians/ PLE.
