    1. i received no news yet about new resolution or amendment of RA 9292 IRR. So most probably, this syllabi is still the reference for ECE Board Exam.

  2. This comment has been removed by the author.

    1. Still and probably for the following years.

    2. Ok, thanks! Anyway, may I ask where this list was obtained?

    3. RA 9292 Implementing Rules and Regulations

  3. sir ask ko lang if ilang years po ba ung conditional n results sa ece exam n pwede pa i-retake?? condi ako nung nag exam ako nung 2010 pa nawalan n ako ng gana at d na ko nagtake nung condi subject ko..pero parang ngaun nagkakainteres ako ulit pwede ko p kaya un n i retake ulit o uulit n ako ng buong exam??

    1. As long as meron record sa PRC na nagpapatunay na ikaw ay na-condi noong 2010, kahit kelan mo gusto e-retake ay pwede.. hanggat hindi nababago ang RA9292 at Implementing Rules and Regulations - Resolution No. 02 Series of 2007 - Section 16 Ratings

    2. sir tanong lang ano yung conditional result?

    3. kailan nagsimula yung conditional result?

    4. @Unknown, sa board exam ng ECE sa ngayon ay meron 4 subjects. "Conditional" kapag yong tatlong subjects ay may rating na hindi bababa sa 70% at ang isang subject ay may rating na below 70% but not lower than 60%.

  4. Sir,2007 po nag graduate,nagtake po ako but unfortunately hinde po ako pumasa at hinde na po ako nag take after 10 years parang gusto ko po mag take ulit,i hope hinde pa huli ang lahat..;),ask ko lang po if marami po ba nag bago at nag dagdag sa review materials ngayon,sir?thanks and God bless po

    1. kapag ECE board exam, mas maganda mag enroll sa review center. Dito sa site, for ECE board exam ay tiyak marami pang kulang. Swerte nalang kung yong mga tanong dito sa online quizzes ay syang lalabas sa board exam. Importante kasi ay meron kang understanding sa mga topics na ecocover ng exam.

  5. Sir Good morning 4th year Engineering student po ako then after 2 year pa po ako mag eexam itatanung ko lang po sana kung may mga reviewer po ba kau na maibibigay sa akin para sa board exam?

    1. Lahat ng reviewers na pede ko eshare ay andito na sa website. Kapag ECE board exam, mas maganda kung makabili ka ng mga reviewer books from Review centers at mag aral ng maaga.

  6. Is this still legit for 2018?

  7. The installment including an ostensible and least transporting charge can be made subsequent to checking the things in the PC screen. Continued

  8. kailan po na update ang article na ito? kailangan ko po kasi as citation

  9. Sino po merong reviewer at magkano po? Salamat po sa sasagot.

  10. Hello po, tanong ko lang po kung ano pong order ng mga subjects sa exams, sa pagkakaalala ko po
    Day 1
    Math - AM
    Elex - PM
    Day 2
    GEAS - AM
    EST - PM

    na condi po ksi ako last april, so ireretake ko po ung subject na di ko po naipasa.

    Ask ko na rin po kung may re take limit ung conditional, example po ung score na nkuha ko sa oct exams eh, pang condi pa din, considered failed na po ba yun or conditional pa din??

  11. Engr. Jandee, itong ECE Licensure Exam SYLLABI ba ay the same parin sa 2019 exams,April 11 and October 25, respectively?

    1. Wala pang binago sa IRR ng RA 9292 kaya tiyak yan parin.

  12. @Jandee ask ko lang. Retaker ako and last exam ko was 2016 pa.

    Required ba na mag enrol ulit sa review center? Pwede ba magself study nalang and review nung mga inaral o dati? Kasi nag enrol nako sa PERCDC dati so gusto ko sana di nako mag enrol for review ulit tutal 3 years naman na ako nagrereview paonti onti bago ulit ako mag exam sa October, so meaning mejo naghanda ako.

    Required ba na mag enrol pa sa review center? Inaalam ba yan ng PRC before letting me take the exam again? Baka hanapin nila enrollment form or proof na nagreview center ako tas di sila papayag..

    Ill be waiting for your answer/advice po. Thanks in advance!

    1. Wala pa akong nabasang memo o resolution from PRB ECE na required ang magreview center. So, kung mag self-study ka lang ay wala naman problem. Kung gusto mo makasigurado, you may contact PRC. Visit

  13. Hindi po requirement and review center. Training ground lang siya if mas gusto mong ready ka for Exam. ~pwede mo ivalidate sa PRC.
    Updated ba syllabus na nandito?
