BOARD EXAM 101

DICLAIMER:
THIS IS NOT A PRC SITE.
THIS IS A PERSONAL SITE.

Becoming a licensed professional is not an easy thing to do. You have to face the grueling review period and going through the examination period. Most of the students who graduated in their respective courses must undergo these examinations.

Board Examination and Licensure Examinations are both being handled by the Professional regulations Commission (PRC) here in the Philippines.

PRAYER FOR BOARD EXAM AND REVIEW

Prayer for Preparation to Study

Grant me peace, O God, as I open my books and notes. Open my mind to Thy will, and may I dedicate these hours to Thy Son, Jesus Christ.

Offer me insight, O Lord, that I might understand these things, and see them as a part of Thy Kingdom.

May I offer Thee my best in reading and learning that it may be a part of my discipleship.

O Jesus Christ, may this be a worthy time that is faithful to Thee and bring me closer to the goals I have in order to serve Thee.

I offer this time and prayer in Thy holy Name. Amen.

Prayer Before an Exam

O wise God, I pray that my mind might be rested, my body energized, and my spirit inspired for the exam I must write.

Grant me peace and assurance so that I might do the best I am able, regardless of what that might be.

Be with my fellow students and may I be a good example to them, offering reassurance and confidence regardless of how I feel.

May I be honest and insightful, and able to give a true record of what I have learned. In the end, may any disappointment be born with grace, and any joy accompanied with humility.

I write this exam with Thee, O Lord Jesus Christ. Amen.

Prayer For Peace of Mind

In this time of anxiety, O loving God, grant me peace of mind. Quiet any distress and allow me to see clearly my mission and discipleship.

I pray for my examiners as well as for myself, so that they might be wise in their questioning so that it will allow for a true accounting of my learning and understanding.

May the memory of my family and friends remind me of their support, regardless of outcome, united with them in the spirit of love.

May I be wise enough to gain enough rest so all might be ready, my thoughts organized, and my life dedicated to serve Thee whatever the cost, through the love of Jesus Christ, my Saviour. Amen.

Prayer in a Time of Anxiety

When I am truly anxious, O God, remind me of my love of Thy Son, Jesus Christ. May I realize that I will not be abandoned, but am accompanied always by Him.

Dispel any sense of self-concern, and remind me that others are feeling the same tensions, which is only natural in times of stress.

Grant me insight, God of Wisdom, to see the things that have been taught, to understand them in the unfolding story of Thy Creation, and our place within it.

May I lay my head down to rest confident that Thou art always with us, through the love and affection of Thy Son, Jesus Christ, my Redeemer and Lord. Amen.

Prayer Before Retiring at Night

God of strength and of comfort, I close the day with thoughts of Thee.

As I turn myself over to the sleep of the present night, grant that Thy benediction may be upon me, and all whom I love. We depend upon Thy care, and pray that we may awake reassured of Thy presence.

No matter how late it might be, nor how early I might have to arise, may this time of sleep help to restore my calmness and perceptiveness, so that when I open my eyes next, I shall be ready to continue my study and service of Thee.

In the last moments of consciousness, I resign my life and purpose to Thee, and to Thy Son, Jesus Christ, in whose Name I pray. Amen.

Prayer When I Awake

May my first thoughts be of Thee, O Light of Life, and may I dedicate all that I do these coming hours to Thy glory.

If my task be to study, may I do it without hesitation. If I face an examination, may I meet it with determination and goodwill.

As I cast off the hour(s) of sleep, and prepare for my responsibilities for the day, may I always remember that Thou art with me in the person of Thy Son, Jesus Christ.

As I awaken, quicken my mind, enlarge my heart, and grant me wisdom to do my best in all I do this day.

May I be a true steward of the time I have this day, and dedicate all that I do to the love and care of my Lord and Redeemer, Jesus Christ. Amen.

The Lord’s Prayer

Our Father, who art in heaven, hallowed be Thy Name. Thy Kingdom come, Thy will be done in earth, as it is in heaven. Give us this day our daily bread, and forgive us our trespasses, as we forgive them that trespass against us; and lead us not into temptation, but deliver us from evil. For Thine is the Kingdom, the power and the glory, for ever and ever. Amen.

As Exam Day Approaches

O God of Wisdom, I thank you for the knowledge gained and the learning experiences of this year. I come to you on this day and ask you to enlighten my mind and heart. Let your Holy Spirit be with me as I prepare for exams, guiding my studies, and giving me insight so that I can perform to be best of my ability. Please grant me the strength to handle the pressure of these final days of the term, the confidence to feel secure in my knowledge, and the ability to keep an appropriate perspective through it all. Help me to keep in mind what is truly important, even as I focus my time and energy on these exams in the immediate future. Finally, may I sense your peace in knowing that I applied myself to the challenges of this day. I ask this through Jesus Christ our Lord. Amen

First Day of Exams

"The fear of the Lord is the beginning of wisdom, and they who live by it grow in understanding. Praise will be His for ever." Psalm 111: 10 (REB)

O wise God, I pray that my mind might be rested, my body energized, and my spirit inspired for the exam I must write.

Grant me peace and assurance so that I might do the best I am able, regardless of what that might be.

Be with my fellow students that I might be a good example to them of faithfulness, offering reassurance and confidence regardless of how I feel.

May I be honest and insightful, able to give a true record of what I have learned this past term. In the end, may any disappointment be born with grace and any joy accompanied with humility.

I write this examination with Thee, O God. Amen.

Second Day of Exams

"Wisdom has built her house; she has hewn her seven pillars. … The first step to wisdom is the fear of the Lord, and knowledge of the Most Holy One is understanding.” Proverbs 9: 1,10 (REB)

Whether I have an exam or not, incline my ear to Thy word, and open my eyes to Thy presence. It is so easy to forget that Thou art with us.

Direct my energy to the accomplishment of Thy will for me, allowing my spirit to detect the direction in which I might best be Thy disciple.

Today I find myself immersed in words, sentences, symbols and equations – whatever language which my subject uses. May they speak clearly and with distinction.

May my desk be an altar where I may lay down my life through my efforts, and dedicate it all to Thee by quickening my knowledge for Thy will to be done. Amen.

Third Day of Exams

"When I look up at your heavens, the work of your fingers, at the moon and the stars you have set in place, what is a frail mortal, that you should be mindful of him, a human being, that you should take notice of him?" Psalm 8: 3,4 (REB)

Wondrous God, we look at Creation when we study, and see so much. We see the works of Thy fingers in the majesty of science and the arts, telling us that these are the implements by which we build Thy Kingdom.

We are in awe of the infinity of Thy universe, and seek to know as much as we are able. May the combination of all our minds open to us an understanding of the meaning of it all.Armed with this vision, may we explore the knowledge we have and use it wisely. In our examinations, may we display our knowledge with reverence and duty,

"Lord our Sovereign, how glorious is your Name throughout the world!" (Psalm 8: 9 (REB)) Amen.

O loving and merciful God, My whole existence depends on you, I ask you to send your Holy Spirit into my heart and mind. Fill me with your grace, beyond my own personal strength, So that I can dedicate the time and energy I need, to study. Give me the strength to resist the distractions from studying. When I am studying by myself, help me to remember that You are my companion, and that I am never alone. Help my teachers to explain things clearly. Help me to respect them. Help me to pay attention and to listen well in class. Give me the courage to ask questions when I don’t understand. Give me the humility to ask for help when I need it. Help me to accept my results After I have done all I can do. Give me a spirit of gratitude For the privilege of learning at this school, While many people in the world do not get such a good opportunity. Help me to make the most of the wonderful gifts you have given me, And to return them to you with generosity. You have been with me through rough times in the past. Help me to trust that you are here with me now. Give me hope for the future, And help me to trust that, whatever the future brings, You are already there waiting for me With your loving embrace. I Offer you this prayer through your Son, My Lord and Saviour Jesus Christ, Who lives and reigns with you, forever and ever. Amen

VISITA IGLESIA

ito ang pinakapanata ko sa buong review period ko para pumasa sa board examinations. ang bumisita sa iba’t-ibang simbahan para magdasal, magsimba, magsindi ng kandila, at humiling sa patron o santo ng simbahan na gabayan ako at para pumasa ako sa board exam.

madami dami din akong napuntahang simbahan this past almost 7 months na pagrereview ko. eto na din ang way para makaalis ako sa bahay at makakita ng ibang bagay at lugar. sa pagbisita ko, lagi kong kasama ang nanay ko para makapamasyal din siya kasama ko. bonding din nain kumbaga.

hope you will visit some of the churches that I have went to during my review period. for the directions, you may search in google and wag kalimutan isearch ang mga ginagawa sa mga simbahan na yan para sa mga board exam takers katulad ng pag-aalay ng itlog, paghinge ng signs ng flowers, pagsindi ng kandila na p[ang board exam etc.

wag din kalimutan humiling sa mga santo na nakalagay sa mga simbahan na yan and pray hard! yun anamn talaga ang pinunta mo para magdasal at humingi ng guidance at pakinggan ang hiling mong pumasa!

Sa board exams, walang magna, suma or cum laude. Lahat pantay-pantay. Equal opportunity para sa lahat. Anyway, lisensya pa lang naman yan, ang totoong success e kapag nagamit mo na talaga yang lisensya mong yan.

EXAM RESULTS

THE TENSION IS ON! HEART STARTS TO BEAT FASTER AND FASTER!

after ng napakahabang paghihintay para sa board examinations, at mag intensive review ng napakatagal, at dumaan sa grueling board examinations niyo; mayroon pang isang event na talagang magpapataas ng kaba at tensyon sa buhay mo. at iyon ay ang paglabas ng resulta ng examinations.

dito sa mga panahon na kung saan inaantay niyo na lang ang resulta ay madami kang naiisip at kumbaga napaparanoid ka na kung ano ang magiging kahihinatnan ng lahat. its either you TOP, PASS, CONDITIONAL, and FAIL the exam.

pero dahil technology na ang pinapairal ng PRC ngayon, mabilis na lang ang pagcheck ng exam kasi parang sa election lang yan, machine na ang gamot to read your answers. at computer na din ang nagcocompute ng mga scores and rates niyo. so in less than a week minsan mga 2 days lang lumalabas na ang resulta pero depende pa din ito sa course dahil minsan umaabot ng buwan dahil madaming examinees ang kumuha ng exams.

magtanong sa mga nakapagtake na kung kelan at ilang araw o buwan lumalabas ang exam para maexpect mo na kung kelan talaga. then hintayin sa PRC website kung lumabas na. ipapakita naman nila sa main page ng site kung lumabas na. then kung lumabas na, pwede niyong idownload ang pdf file ng list ng mga pumasa. like this photo below.

ipapakita lang muna sa list ang pumasa. wala pa dito ang iyong rating at scores per subjects na pinagexaminan mo. at eto ang moment na talaga kabado ang lahat. kung saan makikita mo if pumasa ka o hindi.

pero before checking the result, expect the worst. kumbaga kelangan ihanda mo sarili mo sa kung anuman ang lalabas na resulta. pati ang mga mahal mo sa buhay kelangan maging handa sa mangyayare. kasi alam naman natin its either we will rejoice or we will mourn.

then kung gusto mo ng makita ang resulta ng examinations niyo, you can visit this: http://www.prc.gov.ph/licensure/?id=27 like what is seen in the photo below.

mag-alay ng itlog kay sta. clara (st. claire of assisi)

pamahiin 101

magdasal ng novena sa isang santo o patron ng 9 na araw

karamihan sa mga nagtake ng board exams ay nagdadasal ng novena ng siyam na araw. lalo na kay St. Jude Thaddeaus. dabi kasi nila na si St. Jude ay tumutulong sa mga board examinees at natutupad ang mga kahilingan neto at nakakapasa. kelangan mong dasalin ito ng 9 araw o 9 na thursdays depende sa dasal na ginagawa mo at ang resulta neto ay magkakatotoo na papasa ka sa exams na ito.

pamahiin 101

bago ipasa ang nasagutang papel, iikot ang upuan ng tatlong beses

di ko alam ang tunay na explanation sa pamahiin na ito pero para sa akin, kapag inikot mo ng pabilog ang upuan, agiging swerte ang exam sa iyo dahil pagbilog ibig sabihin swerte

pamahiin 101

bago umupo sa assigned chair mo at ipasa ang papel mo, sipain ng bahagya ang upuan mo forward.

sabi nila, nagbibigay ito ng magandang luck sa exam. so kapag ginawa niyo ito, silently lang para naman di maistorbo ang mga ibang examinees sa gagawin mo.
