    Is this only for manila cancellation? How ’bout Iloilo and CDO, and Davao? Cases are also rising and Ecq status are always not sure.

      No announcement yet from PRC official as to whether the August 2021 MTLE will be cancelled. We advise to stand by..

    Tuguegarao was under ECQ last January MTLE but it was not cancelled. Kung icancel niyo man ngayon, doon lang sa naka ECQ. Gusto na naming matapos to. Lahat tayo pagod na.

    I hope you will announce earlier po kasi di po lahat nakatira sa lugar na eexaman namin, babyahe pa po kami at maghahanap ng matitirahan near on the site of examination. Please consider po sa safety namin sa mga need bumyahe pa. Sana po di po kayo mag announce the day bfore the examination, sana po mga one week bfore, kasi gagastos pa po kami tapos macacancel lang ang exam.

    Please postpone it if necessary, sa family po namin we lost my dad and my lolo to Covid. But i am still taking the MTLE, if we are assured that the venue will prevent the transmission of the new variants, by all means proceed as scheduled, but if not. Spare us from acquiring the virus. Thank you
