PRC Room Assignments (Mechanical Engineering Exam – Aug 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.

Tips to Pass the Mechanical Engineering Exam

Do you want some tips to help you pass the Mechanical Engineering exam?

Without a doubt, passing the Mechanical Engineering 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 Mechanical Engineering boards? Here’s our collection of the best insights and tips from Mechanical Engineering passers and topnotchers themselves!

Check out and adopt the following tips which we compiled from GineersNow.

Tip #1: Skip hard ones.

Give yourself an average of 5 minutes to solve a problem. If you cannot solve the problem within that time, it can be deemed a hard question, so skip it and save it for later.

Doing this eliminates the chances of your spending too much time on difficult items and of not having enough time to deal with those that you actually can solve faster. This also helps in not getting discouraged in the process of answering the test. 

Tip #2: Eliminate improbable answers.

I will let you in a secret: Some items in the Engineering Board Exams are designed NOT to be solved. That is, the answer to some questions will be made quite obvious among the series of choices.

Analyze the choices and evaluate the probability of their being the actual answer to the question. For example, in a particular question, if impedance is given and it is mentioned that it is inductive, you know that the current angle will be negative or more than 180 degrees. Hence, you can already eliminate the choices with a positive value or those less than 180 degrees.  

Or if an item requires a whole number for an answer, take away those with decimal places. Some of the choices are too small or big to be the correct answer -– take them out. 

As in the gameshow “Who Wants to be a Millionaire”, when you limit the number of choices (like when a contestant uses the 50:50 lifeline), the chances of getting the question right increases.

Sometimes your eagerness to start solving the questions in the conventional way will work against you. It is often beneficial to first look at the big picture and to be innovative in providing the answers. 

Tip #3: Unit cancellation.

In case you forget a certain formula, you can always use the unit cancellation method to arrive at the answer. For instance, you know that when a unit of measurement is divided by the same, they will cancel out. What remains will be the unit of measurement of your answer.

Let’s take a look at Work. The unit for Work is N•m. If, for instance, you are looking for the Force that is required to move a block of 1 kg to a distance of 1 m, you can see that some units of measurement can already be cancelled by just looking at the units of the given values.

So you need not worry if you don’t memorize the formulas, because Engineering is actually not about memorization but persistent practice to solve different problems.

Tip #4: Know your calculator.

Your calculator should be the extension of your life. You should treat it as your girlfriend. Therefore, know your calculator as you know yourself. Knowing the capabilities and limitations of your calculator can hugely boost your chances of passing the Engineering Board Exams.

You should know how to operate your calculator like the back of your hand. Ensure that you know how to correctly enter and derive values using your calculator. Be familiar with its onscreen elements and with what symbols and messages mean (so that you don’t commit the mistake of solving for degrees when your calculator was in radian mode all along). Familiarize yourself with all of its functions so you know what complex calculations your calculators can simplify. Capitalize on the features of your calculator and use them to your advantage.

For example, the calculators available today are already able to directly solve standard deviation, matrix and quadratic equations, to name a few. Ideally, the calculator that you will bring to the Board Exams is the one that you have been using since 3rd year college, so operating it becomes second nature. 

Tip #5: Never leave items blank.

There is a saying that one misses 100% of the shots that he does not take. So, in worst case scenarios or if you are really running out of time, if the test is not ‘right-minus-wrong’, I suggest that you provide speculative answers to all items.

By providing an answer to all questions, you give yourself a chance of getting a point. If you must provide speculative answers, I suggest stick with ONE choice/letter across all the questions. Do not randomize your answers. This way, you will have a better percentage of nailing some (or even the majority) of the items.

Based on my experience in taking several professional licensure examinations and mentoring Board Exams takers, it is best to gamble on B or C. In terms of verbal answers, I have observed that the choice with the wordiest answer is often correct.

Prayer for Mechanical Engineering 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.”
