Metro Manila (CNN Philippines, January 22) — The Inter-Agency Task Force approved the conduct of board examinations scheduled this month up to March this year, IATF spokesman Harry Roque announced on Friday.

"The request of the Professional Regulation Commission to conduct and administer the licensure examinations for professionals scheduled for January to March 2021 was approved," Roque said in a statement.

Several licensure exams were postponed last year amid the government-imposed restrictions, including extended community quarantine declarations, the PRC earlier said.

Exams for aspiring medical technologists and sanitary engineers will be held this month, according to PRC. Tests for graduates of veterinary medicine, social work, psychology, geology, mechanical engineering, among others, will be held next month. The Physician Licensure Examination and six other qualifying tests are set in March.
