The second part of the November 2020 Physician Licensure Examination in Tuguegarao City has been canceled.


The Professional Regulation Commission announced the cancellation on Saturday citing access and connectivity difficulties caused by Typhoon Ulysses.

“Due to access and connectivity difficulties caused by Typhoon Ulysses, the November 15 and 16, 2020 PLE is cancelled in Tuguegarao City but shall proceed as scheduled for the rest of the testing venues nationwide,” PRC said in a Facebook post.

“Concerned examinees are advised to check the PRC website and official social media accounts for further announcements,” it added.

On November 7, the PRC said the PLE this month shall continue as scheduled as they “recognize the urgent need for physicians during these times of public health emergency” amid the coronavirus disease (COVID-19) pandemic.

PRC said the second PLE will be held on November 10, 11, 15, and 16.

The professional licensure examination for incoming physicians are administered twice a year.
