Board exams are one of the most important and challenging tests that many professionals need to undergo to obtain their license. In the Philippines, the Professional Regulation Commission (PRC) is the government agency that administers licensure exams for various professions.
With the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic, the PRC has implemented stricter health and safety measures to ensure the well-being of everyone involved in the exams. In this article, we will discuss the PRC Annex A, Annex B, Annex C downloadable forms, which are necessary requirements for all board exam takers.
What are PRC Annex A and Annex B forms?
PRC Annex A and Annex B forms are downloadable forms that contain important information about the examinee’s health status and personal information. The PRC requires all examinees to fill out these forms and submit them to the proctor on examination day.
The Annex A form is the Informed Consent Form, which serves as a legal document that allows the PRC to collect and process the examinee’s personal information. On the other hand, the Annex B form is the Health Declaration Checklist, which includes a checklist of health-related questions that examinees need to answer truthfully.
Where can you download PRC Annex A and Annex B forms?
Examinees can download PRC Annex A and Annex B forms on the PRC website. The forms are available in PDF format and can be accessed through the PRC’s Licensure Exam Division page.
What is PRC Annex C form?
Aside from the Annex A and Annex B forms, all examinees are required to fill out a Post Examination Health Surveillance Form/Annex C. This form contains information about the examinee’s health status after the exam. Examinees need to submit the form to the designated Regional Offices’ email address fourteen (14) days after the exam.
