  1. Hi Sir/Ma'am,
    I am just concern about the requirement for board exam specially the TOR ,which is coming from the schools. I would like to raise the issue regarding one school in Quezon city, that they are now implementing policy of taking/passing their "pre board exam" first before they release your TOR(for board exam).Failure to this exam will not allow you to get your TOR,and failure to apply for Board exam too. I have to believe that its not the rightful way of implementing it, because they are limiting the Arki graduates to get the chance of taking the board without passing first they're "trial exam". I also want to know if its being applied in all the schools? Or is it really PRC/PRBOA's instruction? I hope i can get any clarification regarding this matter. Thank you.

  2. There is no such instruction from PRC/PRBoA on this. If you want, you may write to the PRC to take a look into this matter.

  25. Good Day, Sir/Ma'am,

    I'm an incoming 4th year BS Architecture student and I'm currently working, or rather - helping an architect together with my co-BS Arch student with some of his projects. We would both like to know if we're already allowed to get a logbook and let it be signed by the architect we are currently working with as our mentor.

    I would also like to know if it is possible to have different mentors signing the logbook - but of course in different projects involved.

    I'm hoping for your response in this matter. Thank you, and God bless.

    1. Yes you can buy a logbook at the uap hq and have it signed by your mentor. you can have many mentors. Just photocopy the pages where they need to sign.

      Delete
  26. Good day,

    I'd like to ask about the logbook. How many years of practice does the signing architect need to have to be legible to sign the book? It's funny they don't include this bit of information in the official logbook itself and I'm pretty confused since everyone I've asked has been giving me different answers - 2, 3 or 5 years.

    Thanksa lot.

    3 - Affidavit of experience signed and sealed by a registered architect with updated ID.
    4 - masters degree in architecture - one(1) year practical experience.
    5 - affidavit of experience signed and sealed by a registered architect with updated ID.

    1- concern ko lang po kung need pa ba talaga ulit ng logbook even if nag submit na ako noong first take ko. and need ulit ng 2 years experience.
    2- ofw po ako, umuwi po ako take take the board exam, so iba po yung naging experience ko working aboard. pwede kaya yun ilagay?
