  1. Replies
    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

    2. Pwede ka nmn mag self study as long as naiintindihan mo nmn ung theory ng mga subjects dahil kung hindi.. Better go review center again.. lower math tolentino book higher math dimal book..elex indiabix at bird.. Esat indiabix, forouzan at frenzel.. Geas excel book at geas top book.. Basta focus k sa basic.. Practice mo lang everyday.. Sure yan papasa ka glhf

    3. updated po ba yung mga books sir? thanks po.. and any additional tips po? thankyou

  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?

    1. kung hindi pa nababago ang IRR ng RA 9292 (BECE Resolution No. 02 Series of 2007), most likely ay ito parin ang coverage for the ECE Exam.

  14. san po papsok ung mga maclaurin at laplace s math? since wala naman po sya s syllabus?

  15. Good day! Curious lang po..May limit po ba ang pag take ng board exam for ECE? thank you!

    1. sa per RA 9292, walang limit ang pagkuha ng ECE board exam.

  16. Kelan po mapapalitan ng board chairman ang ECE?? Ano po ung trends / tips para nakapasa po sa boards? Any experience din po nung board exam nyo?

  17. Saan din po magandang mag review center? Ung may pi akamataas po na passing rate ?

  18. Sir Jandee,

    Good afternoon.
    I am planning to take the ECE board exam again. Eh mejo matagal na yung last exam ko, so request sana ako ng mga effective reviewer books (lists sana) para mabili ko at mabasa. Self review lang para ma-familiarize po ulit about the covered subjects. Looking forward for your assistance. Salamat po.

  19. Hi Sir,

    Good Day.

    hingi lang po sana ako ng tips for the list ng pwedeng reviewhin balak ko po sana kumuha ng exam by next year gusto ko lang talaga sya paghanadaan sa ngayun. Medyo matagal na po last kong board exam 2018 pa po.

    Salamat po

  20. Hi Sir! Pag conditional po ba pwedeng hindi muna itake this coming board exam? Iba-iba kase ang sinasabi ng mga napagtanungan ko po.. based Naman sa RA 9292 walang duration na nakalagay. Thank you po

    1. Hello Engr. Jandee. Hingi po sana ako ng reference na madaling intindihin. Yung nakasimplified na po. Gusto ko po kasi sanang nagprepare na for april 2021 exam. Kung okay lang po sainyo, pakiindicate na lang po mga best references per subjects po. Including mga sites na din po sana hehe. Maraming salamat po!

    2. Sa site na ito, malaki ang maitutulong ng Online Quizzes sa iyong paghahanda sa board exams. All questions are based on Syllabi. Also, try to answer questions in the Problem Solving page. Napakalawak ng coverage ng ECE board exam so mabuting makapagvisit din sa ibang mga sites na tulad ng ganito. Google search lang.

  21. I think this will change for 2018 batch (K-12 curr).

  22. Hi. Ask ko lang, pwede ba mag take ng ece board exam ang graduate BS in Computer Engineering since ito ay related naman sa BS in Electronics Engineering?

    1. not qualified for ECE board exam but you can try to apply for the exam, it is up to the Board of Electronics Engineering kung e allow kang makapag exam ng ECE.

  23. May advantages po ba yung mga review center if makapasa sa ece board exam salamat po

    1. pag maraming pumapasa sa isang review center, makakapaghikayat silang maraming reviewees na mag eenroll.

  24. It is possible na mabago ito since 4 years na lang Ang engineering ngayon?

    1. it's always up to the Board of Electronics Engineering. At posible na magkaroon ng pagbabago lalo na sa topics ng electronics and est.

  25. sana e-merge ang mathematics at geas

  26. Hello po Sir. ECE grad po ako wayback 2011 pa, and never pa po nakapag-take ng board exam. ngaun lang po ako nagkaroon ng time and enough interest to take the risk. pwede pa po kaya ako matake ng board exam? or may specified years lang after graduation need mag-take?

  27. An examination was done and the specialists tracked down that the decay was not because of lower scores on the different decision part of the exam (known as the MBE). Not really set in stone that the lower bar pass rates were because of a higher disappointment rate on the paper questions.

  28. Sir Jandee

    Good day
    Ano po ba ang latest syllabi nga ECE board exam?
    Hoping for your response

    1. wala pang bagong IRR ang RA 9292 so most likely ay yong nakasulat parin dito sa page ang basehan ng ECE board exam.

  29. Hello po, Conditional po ako from oct 2019 ece board exam then nagapply po ako for apr 2020 boards ngunit nacancel po ito dahil po sa covid.

    I am planning to withdraw my application for oct 2021 board exam due to covid threat po. Maaapektuhan po ba nito ang “Conditional” status ko? If not, pwede ko ba itake ang exam anytime? Most probably pag mababa na ang covid threat sa bansa. Thank you

    1. Valid reason naman at kung mawiwidro mo ang application sa PRC, you can directly ask them kung maforfeit ba ang conditional status mo... pero sa aking opinyon, kapag nawidro mo bago dumating ang araw ng exam, tingin ko ay d ma forfiet.. but better ask PRC para sure.

      Ang pagkuha ng exam as condi ay pede kunin kahit kelan mo gusto hanggat ang batas natin RA 9292 ay walang amendment tungkol dito.

    2. Sir, nakapag apply na po kasi for boards April 2020 sana kaso na cancel ng na cancel. now, if ever hindi pa approve ang pag cancel ko ng application sir, at hindi ako makapag exam on the boards this year what will happen po kaya on the conditional status po?

    3. kung officially cancelled ang iyong exam application, most likely ay retain parin ang conditional status mo. To make sure, call PRC for inquiry.

  30. Hi, any update syllabi for new curriculum for the board exam in 2022?

    1. wala pa ako nakuhang update.. most likely same parin ang syllabi.

  31. Can a retaker top the board exam po ba?

    1. i think so Yes.. wala naman ako nabasa sa RA 9292 IRR na di pedeng mag-top ang retaker.

  32. This comment has been removed by a blog administrator.

  33. Sir, paano po kapag condi status aand nakapagfile for exam last 2020, then for some reasons ay di makakapagtake this October, is it considered as failed po ba? or absent lang?

    Also, if no show ako, yung status ko bang condi is maforfeit, and need ko itake lahat ng subjects parang retaker?

    1. sa pagkakaalam ko pag no show during examination day is considered failed. But it is better to ask PRC directly.

  34. good day sir, may limit po ba kung ilang beses magtake ng board exxam? or unli po yan.

    1. sa RA 9292, walang nakasaad about sa limit ng pagtake ng exam. So unli.

  35. Saan pwede makabili ng mga reviewer para sa board exam ng ECE

    1. Normally makakabili sa mga review centers.

  36. Hi, any update syllabi for new curriculum for the board exam in October 2022?

    1. I think, wala paring pagbabago sa ECE syllabi. I found no new resolution about this yet.

  37. Hi sir 2001 graduate ako ng ECE nag take ako ng exam 2002 ,bagsak hanggang naka pag abroad ako.balak ko po mag review ulit..ano po ma advice nyo thank you.

    1. mag-enroll sa review center,, i think nag ooffer na ang mga review centers ng online ngayon. Saka anumang review materials or tools na makukuha mo, online man o hard copies, laging basahin ang mga ito at pag-aralan. Pag may maencounter ka na di maintindihan, google search lang yan,,

  38. Hi sir, Jandee... malapit na po ako grumaduate and sa totoo lang wala pa rin po talaga akong alam sa ECE. Inabutan po ako ng pandemic, and naubos po lahat ng oras ko sa work. Possible pa rin po ba ako na makapasa sa board exam kahit ang alam ko pa lang ay Ohm's Law. As in wala na po pagdating sa ibang subject, kahit sa mga math man wala po talaga. :((( Maraming salamat po sa sagot and tips nyo po.

    1. Posible naman basta pagtyatyagaan mo na magstart pag-aralan ang mga review materials. Kelangan determinado ka pumasa para ganahan ka mag-aral. Mag-enroll sa review centers. May mga online classes narin yata sa ang mga review centers ngayon. Malaking tulong pag naka enroll ka sa review center. Kung pag may topics na di mo maintidihan, google search lang,, halos lahat naman ngayon na pede mo aralin ay asa internet na.. Even sa youtube ay may mga lessons.

  39. Good day po, ask lng po sana ako kasi graduate po ako ng 2018, and im planning to take april 2023 board exam, kaso worried po ako baka new syllabus na po, if incase po ba na mg change na required po ba kmi ng kumuha ng subject to cope up with new and old? And saan po ba malalaman ang announcement if mgchange po?

    1. Base sa existing Law, the RA 9292, malabong mangyaring erequire ka na pabalikin ng School to take subjects kapag nagbago ang Syllabi kapag Graduate ka ng BS ECE. Once graduate ka ng BS ECE at kahit anong taon ka pa nag graduate, makakapag board exam ka ng ECE. Pag may mga new PRB ECE resolutions, ang announcement normally pinopost sa website ng PRC, IECEP or sa Official Gazzete.

  40. hi sir, question lang po sa new tos tama po ba sa geas wala na ang strema and mechanics?

  41. Good day! Question po. I took Board exam last Oct. 2019 and it was tagged as Conditional. Then I was tagged as absent last April 2022 and nagFile po ulet ako for exam this Oct. 2022. Nagdecide ako na April 2023 na magexam since may new TOS. Is it ok if absent pa din ako this October. Nagttry ako magpamove but no reply pa din from PRC. Thank you in advance!

    1. Contact PRC as soon as possible. Ang advice ko is give a valid reason kung bakit ka absent during exam.

  42. Hi, is there allowable number of absence po sa conditional?

    1. Only the Professional Regulatory Board of Electronics Engineering ang makakasagot ng tama sa tanong mo. Ang advice ko is give a valid reason kung bakit ka absent during exam.
