Tips to Pass the Fisheries Technologist Exam

Do you want some tips to help you pass the Fisheries Technologist exam?

Without a doubt, passing the Fisheries Technologist Licensure Exam requires tons of preparation, hard work, persistence, and determination. You will surely do your part. You will study long hours, read a lot of books, and answer hundreds of pages of reviewers.

But do you want to hear useful tips, this time straight from those who already passed the Fisheries Technologist boards? Here’s our collection of the best insights and tips from Fisheries Technologist passers and topnotchers themselves!

Check out and adopt the following tips which we compiled from Raison Bassig on Facebook.

Tip #1: BRUSH UP ON YOUR READING COMPREHENSION SKILLS.

Your ability to understand whatever you read is no doubt the most important aspect in the board exams (and, more importantly, in your careers). Every word that appears in the question that you read serves as clues to the right answer. During the exam, you will encounter questions wherein you will not be able to recall the word-by-word definition as taken from the book or reviewer. If this happens (and I am sure it will happen frequently), you would then have to rely on analyzing the meaning of the question being asked based on the words that you see. The higher your comprehension of what is being asked or defined, the higher your chances of getting the answer correctly.

There are several ways to improve your reading comprehension. These need not be lifeless and boring like memorizing the encyclopedia or the dictionary. Try to grab your favorite magazine or a newspaper once in a while and read some articles found in there. It can be about fashion, cars, current events, show business, music, games… whatever your interest is. The point here is to immerse yourself on trying to understand whatever it is that you read. Also, you can increase your vocabulary by playing games like crossword puzzles, boggle, hangman, scrabble, etc.

Tip #2: BE PHYSICALLY AND PSYCHOLOGICALLY PREPARED

Never underestimate your body’s limitation. I have stressed in my previous article the importance of being physically prepared in your review. The same thing goes for during the exam itself. Avoid drowsiness by getting a long-night’s sleep the night before the exam. If you are itching to do a last-minute study or browsing of notes, I suggest you do it the next morning before you go to the exam venue.

Attend to your personal needs before the examination begins. Depending on the strictness of the assigned proctors, you are not allowed to go out of the room once the exam has started. So watch what you eat and drink. You are, however, allowed to bring food and drinks and consume them while taking the exams. I strongly recommend that you bring something that is just light for your stomach and something that is not too messy, noisy, or smelly to eat.

During the examination, you should be ready for long hours of thinking and answering. Depending on the subject, board exams usually last from 3 hours to as long as 6 hours (even 9 hours for design subjects). Be prepared for uncomfortable seats (like drafting table chairs with no backrests or wooden armchairs with no cushions). While answering, take some 2-minute rests once in a while to recharge your mind and body. Doing a little stretching or closing your eyes for a few minutes might also help.

Just as much as your physical condition is important in the board exams so are your mental and emotional states. Do not let pressure and nervousness control you. You must be able to control them. The board exam is like a war and you will be going into battle. You have to release that warrior instinct in you and own the examination. More people with positive mental attitudes succeed in life than people who are pessimistic. Declare that you are going to win and that nothing can stop you from doing so.

Tip #3: WHAT’S THE HURRY? – MAKE THE MOST OUT OF YOUR TIME!

So much as time management is important in your review, so is it important during the board exam itself. First order of business is to know which subjects you are going to tackle on which time or days. PRC releases an exam schedule alongside the syllabus of the subjects in your particular licensure examination.

For example, in the recently held Licensure Examination for Environmental Planners, the exams were to be held in two days. Day 1 covers one subject (i.e., Environmental Planning Processes, Methods, and Strategies). This subject is scheduled from 8:00am to 2:00pm (or 6 hours). Day 2, on the other hand, covers two subjects. The first subject (i.e., History, Concepts, Theories, and Principles of Environmental Planning) is scheduled from 8:00am to 11:00am (or 3 hours), while the second subject (i.e., Environmental Plan Implementation and Legal Aspects) is scheduled from 12:00pm to 4:00pm (or 4 hours).

Having known the number of hours allotted, the next step is to try to know the number of questions or items for each subject. In the example above, the Day 1 subject of Environmental Planning Processes, Methods, and Strategies consists of 200 questions. With 6 hours allotted for this subject, I first subtract an hour for transferring of answers (see Tip #4). This gives me 5 hours to answer a total of 200 questions (and 1 hour for transferring and finalizing my answers). So the rate in which I have to answer is given at 200 questions per 300 minutes. Simplifying, this means I have 1 minute and 30 seconds to answer one question in my Day 1 subject.

The same formula goes for the other subjects. In the same example above, the first subject in Day 2 (i.e., History, Concepts, Theories, and Principles of Environmental Planning) consists of 100 questions. With 3 hours allotted for this subject, I subtract an hour for transferring of answers. This gives me 2 hours to answer a total of 100 questions. So the rate in which I have to answer is given at 100 questions per 120 minutes. Simplifying, this means I have 1 minute and 12 seconds to answer one question in my Day 2 subject.

Another very important thing to remember is that each question, regardless of its difficulty, is just worth 1 point. So, I strongly recommend that you answer the easier questions first. If you do not know the answer or you are having difficulties deciding which among the choices to pick, just skip it immediately and proceed to the next item. You must not waste too much time thinking and fishing for an answer on a very difficult question. You will be going back to it later after you have read all the others. This is a very good strategy because sometimes there are questions or choices similar to the one you are having trouble with that would help you get to the right answer (see example in Tip #7).

Keep track of your time by wearing a wrist watch (not a cellular phone since you would have to turn this off and surrender to the proctors). Do not be forced to finish your exam early just because other examinees are finishing their exams way ahead of everyone else. You will encounter in your classroom these kinds of examinees that will stand up and submit their answer sheets just one or two hours after the exam has started. Well, that’s their business. You mind your own exam. You do not get additional points for finishing first. So make the most out of your time by double-checking and triple-checking your answers in your questionnaire until you are satisfied before transferring them to your answer sheet as your final answers.

Tip #4: PRACTICE ELIMINATION – EXPLOIT THE WEAKNESS OF MULTIPLE-CHOICE QUESTIONS

The 70’s board exam was all about identification, fill-in-the-blanks, and written essays that are checked manually. Nowadays, the board examinations are “modernized” and are checked using the computer. For ease of checking, questions are now prepared with multiple choices. This modernization of the board exam has actually made your lives much easier in so far as getting an answer correctly. Multiple-choice questions, usually with 4 choices (A, B, C or D), give you a higher probability of getting a right answer than identification questions… simply because the answer is already there – you just have to pick it.

Practice the art of elimination to increase this probability especially for questions you do not know. Here is an example of a question I have encountered in the board exam in which I do not know the exact answer but was able to figure out by means of elimination:

Question: Who is this Swiss-born architect who designed the San Francisco Museum of Modern Art?
Choices: a. Le Corbusier b. Frank Lloyd Wright c. Santiago Calatrava d. Mario Botta


From the question, we already know that we are looking for an architect who was born in Switzerland. Among the choices, I am only familiar with Le Corbusier and Frank Lloyd Wright (I have heard of the Calatrava guy before but not in detail). Based on what I know in college, I was able to identify immediately that Frank Lloyd Wright is an American architect who worked during the late 1800’s towards the 20th century. Having eliminated choice B, my probability of getting a right answer increased from 1:4 (or 25%) to 1:3 (or 33.3%). I then continued analyzing my three remaining choices.

I then remembered one magazine article I read regarding the works of this Santiago Calatrava. He is an engineer-architect and was, as I recalled, probably a Spaniard. If C is the right answer, the question should have mentioned that he is a civil engineer because I heard that his works were known for its outstanding structural beauty. Since the question did not mention anything about it and I was convinced he is really from Spain (judging by his surname), I then eliminated choice C, leaving me with only two options to choose from. My probability of getting a right answer now increased from 1:3 (or 33.3%) to 1:2 (or 50%).

With only two remaining choices, I know that Le Corbusier is a Swiss-born architect. So, choice A might be correct. But he is one of the well-known architects during the 1930’s, and I never heard of his designing a museum in San Francisco. Also, I remembered from an internet article that this museum was built around the 80’s or 90’s (since it was a modern art museum). Even thought Le Corbusier was born in Switzerland, he might not have been alive when this museum was designed. So having that analysis, I eliminated choice A (Le Corbusier) and decided to chose the lesser-known choice D (Mario Botta).

After the exams, I researched to see if I had the right analysis, and true to what I thought, I was right. Mario Botta was that Swiss-born architect who designed the San Francisco Modern Art Museum.

The ability to eliminate choices depends on how much knowledge you have on the other given choices. That is why the more you have prepared in your review and the more topics you have read, the higher the chances of you knowing which choices to eliminate. Otherwise, you might be running the risk of eliminating the correct answer.

PRC Room Assignments: Fisheries Technologist Exam (Oct 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.

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.
