    I am one of the parents of the cancelled Aug 15-16,2021 Mechanical Engineering board exam examinee/taker.
    I would like to be clarified as to when is the new schedule of the exams in NCR this year, to give me peace of mind.
    My child has been in Manila since July 29,2021. Together with his other classmates, they are waiting for the new schedule this year. Please inform them ( the examinees/takers) now if there will be schedule this year or none, or maybe schedule the exams for 2022.
    As parents, with the rising cases of Covid 19 in Manila, I am worried of his situation there.
    Thank you for your immediate reply on this matter.
