  1. Talking about persistence: A cousin of ours has taken 7 years to get enough units of a normal 4 year civil engineering course in Bacolod. Then she did the review and failed the board exam. Then she did a second review and failed the board exam. She is now in her 3rd and final review. Only allowed 3 strikes. The sister of our daughter's b/f took a 4 year business course, did the review and passed the board exam. Then she got married to a seaman who does not want her to work so she stays home with his mother. that's called "Life"... sometimes it sucks. Predicting an outcome of the f
  2. Thanks for the page. My question is just, what are the (cheaper, but still effectif) alternatives of a review-course.
  3. i suppose that it will not be that easy for a nurse.. ;-) I like your nephew's persistance. :-) ;-)
  4. This is funny as I was just talking to my sister-in-law about this yesterday ..... she is a teacher and has one boy just graduated last year and one girl will graduate this year .... we also have a niece that graduated nursing school 2 years ago ..... her review was 3 months .... and this is what I understand about taking the boards exam ..... Depending on the ranking of the school best to worst ..... top schools may not have to take a 3 to 6 month refresher coarse to take board exam depending on the coarse ..... depending on the students ranking in the class they may not have to take the
  5. Good morning Frank? (is this what we should call you?) So Board Reviews and Board Exams. Like Prosecutors, taking a case to court, they will only do it if they are fairly sure of a Conviction. The Board Exam is a National Exam and of course the Students may come from a big variety of Colleges and the Like so to ensure that time and Exam places are not wasted they have a Review to see if the candidate has a pretty good chance of Passing. No Good wasting a Place and stopping another Student getting a chance. they only allot the Exam to the Top 100 students. ( I guess you can see where I am Goi
  6. Is it obligated to take a review in order to participate in a board-exam? (i don't think so, but i am not sure)
  7. Do you mean making exam tests WITHOUT having teacher, just study yourself? We have such in Sweden. Beside subjects I have studied without bothering to get grades, I have done such myself (Business Economy, Acounting, Society Sience.) I hope my future kids will do similar in Phils, but it seem there aren't any such in Phils. I have asked some Phil teachers, students and one at a rather high TESDA position (but she is at Elementary school level) and no one of them know of any such direct tests. I suppouse even less chance there are such direct tests in occupations which need licence.
  8. ..hehe, no i don't need to take any board-exam anymore... This is for my ex-in-law-siblings. I promised them to support them till they finished their studies, but seems that graduation is not the end yet. And now i am surprised how much it is for their (so needed) reviews.
  9. Is there someone who could help me with this item : "review" for a board-exam? Here in my place (Belgium/Germany) we are not familiar with it. Here to get pass the board-exam, you just study in your house or in a library just for free. Seems that PH have a different system, one which includes a lot of fees/costs. These reviews are very expensive (i heard some more than 100.000php) and i would like to know, if there is an alternative or some "do's" and "don't do's". Especially for the reviews for following board-exams : Nurse, Electrical Engineer and Industrial Engineer. If possibl
