What do you think of the new TOS for ECE Board Exam? Comment it down below!


  1. Parang ito pa rin yung lumang syylabus ng board exam
    Wala po ba updated?

    1. Hi, this is still the latest syllabus for ECE board exams.

  2. 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 no show/absent lang?

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

  3. I graduated my electronics engineering course from International Correspondence Schools/Thompson Education Direct-Philippines as my post graduate studies,and i also finished my degree in Electroniics Technology from University of Southeastern Philippines.Am i qualified to take the Electronics Engineering Licensure exam?

    1. please read RA9292 section 14

  4. What subject on the 1st day of exam

    1. Math and Elex on first day then GEAS and EST on second day.

  5. Ito pa rin po ba ang syllabus this coming oct 2022 board examination?

    1. There will be a new syllabus in the upcoming exam. We will update this page as soon as possible once it is published by PRC.

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

  7. Why is it that the ece board exam mowadays is made to be very difficult not like the pass many years? It is not justifiable. Can this be change back to not so difficult exam.

    1. The board ensures that the pool of ECE professionals meet the minimum standard. This level of difficulty will actually help the profession to retain its competitiveness.

  8. is this updated? looing for new syllabus. thanks

    1. Not yet, will update as soon as I got the copy.

    2. Hi there, post is already updated with the new TOS.

  9. I graduated 2005 never take a ece board exam, paano po gagawin ko

    1. Just register at PRC like a first timer examinee.

  10. will this affect conditional status

    1. First timers, retakers and conditional will have the same examination coverage.

  11. Ito na po ba board exam coverage ng ECE, October 2022 & April 2023? Thank you po sa sasagot.

    1. The post is already updated with the new TOS. It will take effect on all examinations after June 20, 2022.

  12. Is this updated na po for October 2022? Where to subscribe? Thanks!

    1. Yes, this is already updated. Check it out!

  13. Hi! This might be a noob question but, for example "Taylor Series" is not mentioned in the coverage, does that mean we shouldn't have to study for it?

    1. TOS should only serve as a guide. There might be topics that might appear on the board exam that isn't included in the TOS.

  14. Hi guys, OFW po ako.. and interested po mag take ng exam this October, Papano ko po ma submit mga requirement sa PRC office since nasa labas KSA pa ako.. pwedi po ba online submition ng requierement.. Maramin salamat po.. God bless

  15. Allowed po ba ang 570 es plus 2nd edition sa ECE board exam?

  16. Mayron ka po bang downloadable document ng new tos?

  17. Hi. I failed the Electronics Engineering Licensure Examination in October 2011. I still have my NOA. Will PRC still require a copy of TOR for retaking the October 2023 exams?

    1. Yes, they still check your TOR. I took last October 2022. You can get a copy again of your TOR sa school naman diba.

  18. is this updated po? new tos 2023?
