ROOM ASSIGNMENT: Criminology Board Exam

PRC Room Assignments (Criminology 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.

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 Criminology Exam

Do you want some tips to help you pass the Criminology exam?

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

Check out and adopt the following tips which we compiled from the Criminology Reviewer Ngani group on Facebook.

Tip #1: Preparing for the Criminology board exam starts BEFORE the exam date!

Keep in mind that what you do before the day of your exam will affect your exam performance more than anything else. 

Criminology Board Exam ROOM ASSIGNMENT - Tips to pass

You have to study. Organize your notes. Check PRC’s deadlines. Attend review sessions. And many more!

Tip #2: Keep in mind the rules you have to follow on the day of your exam.

On the day of your exam, there will be rules that you must follow. From avoiding erasures to keeping food in your bag, you have to follow these; otherwise, you might cost yourself a passing mark.

Criminology Board Exam ROOM ASSIGNMENT - Tip 2

Given this, do NOT forget to LISTEN to what your exam proctor has to say. He or she will tell you all the rules you have to follow so that you can be properly informed of everything you can and cannot do.

Tip #3: Study these strategies for answering difficult questions.

It is inevitable that you will encounter questions that are difficult to answer. When you encounter such questions, don’t guess immediately! There are various strategies that you can employ to determine the correct answer:

Criminology Board Exam ROOM ASSIGNMENT - Tip 3

When answering a multiple choice question, you’re not doomed if you don’t know the one correct choice. Keep in mind that you can eliminate all wrong choices to arrive at the correct one!

Tip #4: Guessing the correct answer is NOT always advisable.

If you really don’t know the correct answer and you can’t eliminate the wrong answers as well, then you might be tempted to guess. After all, though the odds that you’ll choose the wrong answer is higher, you might still guess right and add more points to your score!

However, this isn’t always advisable — especially if your exam penalizes you further for incorrect answers!

Criminology Board Exam ROOM ASSIGNMENT - Tip 4

If you are taking a “right minus wrong” exam, take note that guessing incorrectly will decrease your score further. And in a 4-choice question, there is a 75% probability that you will choose the wrong answer.

So make sure you check first if you will be taking a “right minus wrong” exam. And if yes, make a guess on a question only if you’ve eliminated more than 1 wrong choice!

Tip #5: Pray.

No tip is simpler and more powerful.
