PRC Room Assignments: Architecture Exam June 2019

If you see a “Now Available!” note beside the exam venue, it means the PRC already released the list for that province or city and you may now view the room assignment. If it is not yet available, the PRC is still finalizing the school and classroom details. We will update this post once the official Room Assignments are released.

Tips Before Taking the Board Exam

Here are additional useful tips we suggest you follow before the exam.

1. You’ll notice that even in just one school, several buildings and classrooms will be used as testing centers. To make sure that you proceed to the correct location, write down and take note of the exact Building, Classroom, and Seat Number assigned to you.

2. Before the day of the board exam, find out the address of the school or venue where you’ll be taking the exam. Research the actual location using Google Maps or a guide map to determine how to get there.

3. Better yet, try visiting the venue a few days before the board exam! Doing so will help you discover the best transportation or routes to take. If you simulate going to the venue beforehand, you’ll also have an idea how long it will take you to reach the exam center from your place. This allows you to change your transportation plans, if needed.

4. On the day of the exam, don’t be late! According to the PRC, examinees who will be late will NOT BE ALLOWED to take the board exam. We suggest you arrive at the exam venue at least one (1) hour before the start of the exam. This gives you enough time to locate the building, classroom, and seat number assigned to you.

What happens if you did not show up or weren’t able to take the boards? The answer is in this article: I registered but I did not take the board exam.

Tips to Pass the Architecture Board Exam

Are you looking for tips to help you pass the ALE?

Here’s our collection of the best insights and tips which we got from Architect Richee Genesis, who successfully passed both the Architecture and Master Plumber Board Exams on his first try! Adopt these tips and you’ll soon be a full-fledged architect in no time!

Tip #1: Do a study area make-over.

“As messy as it looks like (pic below was taken after the boards), the above picture was actually a storage area of our house and I transformed it into my study nuke.”

Tip #2: If you are enrolled in a Review Center, come early for the front seats.

“They have this strict no reservation policy so tell your friends to come early too!”

Tip #3: Read the Visual Dictionary THRICE!

Tip #4: Don’t buy books that you know you would never open.

Reviewing for the boards especially in ALE is very expensive. Ring-bound books from the review center are quite overpriced so if you can just borrow a book from a friend who bought it, have it photocopied for half the price!

Tip #5: Exchange notes with friends from other review centers.

Tip #6: Be careful with what you write on the logbook. 

“Do your logbook as soon as possible! It can be bought for P400.00 or for the same price. Just take note that you can’t have erasures when filling it out.

Still, take note that the PRC doesn’t always allow everyone to take the boards especially if they find something intriguing in your logbook. So be careful with what you write on your own logbook.”

Prayer for Architecture Board Exam Takers

“Almighty Father,

Guide me and be with me as I take this exam

Inspire me to be calm, confident, and clever.

Help me concentrate and clear my mind

Remove my anxiety and relieve me of stress.

Grant me the wisdom to remember what I studied

And discernment to know the answers that are right.

Provide me strength to pass this challenge

Help me conquer this exam.

I now lay down before you my nerves and fears

Please endow me your peace and warm my heart.

I pray for my success in this exam

All for the glory of God.

Amen.”
