'Tests 1, 2 also leaked to NLE examinees'

'Tests 1, 2 also leaked to NLE examinees'

An ABS-CBN Bandila Exclusive

A nursing graduate revealed that the first two parts of the 2006 Nursing Licensure Exam (NLE) were also leaked to examinees, ABS-CBN's Bandila reported Wednesday night.

The nursing graduate, identified only as "Janna", told Bandila that three other review centers distributed the leaked questions and answers to examinees.

"What I know is that there are several review centers who distributed their own versions of the leakage. These came from Board of Nursing (BON) examiners," Janna told Bandila.

Janna said friends who took a review course at R.A. Gapuz Review Center admitted receiving a leakage for Tests 1 and 2 of the nursing board exam. She said the leakage also found its way to nursing graduates who took nursing board review classes under the St. Louie, Fatima and Pentagon review centers.

Officials of Gapuz and Fatima review center have denied the allegation.

Janna said some of her friends told her that a reviewer had a "phone patch conversation" with BON examiner Sister Letty Kuan while students were taking up a review class at the St. Louie Review Center last June 9.

Sister Kuan drafted tests 1 and 2, which, according to Janna, were leaked to the St. Louie students. The report said Carl Balita, an announcer of radio DZMM, owns and is the head examiner of St. Louie Review Center.

Janna also confirmed the release of leaked questions and answers of Tests 3 and 5 in a "final coaching" session in a Manila moviehouse three days before the board exam. At least 1,000 students allegedly attended the coaching session.

The Professional Regulation Commission earlier tagged George Cordero, president of the Philippine Nurses Association, as the source of the leakage after allegedly paying P7 million to BON members. Cordero has denied the allegation.

PRC Chairwoman Leonor Tripon-Rosero earlier said the integrity of the licensure exams remained intact after the PRC invalidated two portions of the exams that were allegedly leaked.

Rosero also allowed the oath taking of new nurses last Thursday before the Court of Appeals ordered the ceremonies stopped.

Budek comments : There is absolutely NO leakage in OUR LADY OF FATIMA UNIVERSITY IN HOURSE REVIEW. I reviewed there for 3 or 4 months for the June board exams though, I decided not to take the June boards. I attended and never missed any review sessions including the LAST DAY where we did a simple MASS and words of encouragement from the faculty.

Our Dean that time was not in the country so she wasnt able to give us some words of support.

I really do not know about JANNA but I absolutely conclude that she is talking base on hear says and unproven facts.

isnt it a bit suspicious that only Abs-Cbn news both radio and tv are the only ones to have this news?

HAY NAKU!!! THIS IS THE KIND OF JUNK YOU GET FROM ABS-CBN... WHAT IS THIS? A DESPERATE MOVE JUST TO GET PEOPLE TO WATCH BANDILA? KORINA SANCHEZ SEEMS TO BE PUSHING THE ISSUE THAT THE JUNE 2006 PASSERS ARE INCOMPETENT AND SHLD RETAKE THE EXAM. LOOK WHO'S TALKING!!! ABS-CBN ITSELF HAS GOT A BUNCH OF IRRESPONSIBLE AND ONE-SIDED JOURNALISTS AND REPORTERS. WHAT A SHAME!

you are indeed right! this certain "network" has been reporting nothing but malicious & purely based on "masked witnesses" about the june board. there is something fishy about this....hmmmmnnnnnn

wala na kasi silang ma ireport na maganda kaya nag reresort na sila sa hearsay from an unreliable witness -- who do not even have the guts to show her face on tv. kaya gawa sila ng gawa ng kasiraan.

budek, u are right. i am from OLFU and the school did not give any tips nor leaks about the june board.

i am a reviewee of st louis review center and i can proudly say that our conscience is CLEAN. where did abs-cbn get a "janna" informer who doesn't want to show her face nor state her real name? if she is as sure as she claims to be she should have filed a formal complain weeks ago, like erfe and bautista did. is she even e reviewee of st. louis? how could abs air such accusations without even a formal investigation? nakakasar na talaga kau abs, hindi nyo matatalo gma7 kahit na gumanyan pa hau...because you play dirty. tama nga si ms. susan...HINDI TOTOO MGA SINASABI NYO.....

ako naman nag review ng pentagon, na bore nga ako sa final coaching at nag umpisa sa praise the lord at natapos sa Gay show... ni walang tip, puro kabaklaan!

Kaya tumatandang dalaga yang si Korina, bopols kasi. She believes her own suspicion as the truth, paranoid na sa kapwa niya pilipino. Dapat dalhin na sa basement yan, hehe

I dont know what bandila would like to prove, dapat tigilan na nila ang paglalabas ng mga testigo "kuno" na ayaw lumantad at mag file ng complaint.those claims about this janna are all fabricated because i reviewed in gapuz, no leakage of test 1 and 2, that i can really proved. even the handwritten notes or the supposed leakage na binigay for test 3 and 5 ay di nakarating sa amin, though it was proven that gapuz reproduced those papers, not all gapuz reviewees were reached by those papers.pero ang test 1 at 2 ala talaga!this is really a negative publicity to destroy the nursing graduates!wag na manood ng bandila!!!

Bka nagpapagamit si Korina sa mga maimpluwensyang maperang tao para ma mislead tayong lahat ng BANDILA! Pati nursing scandal ginagamit na para sa ma-impeach si gma.SOBRA NA YAN!!!

abs-cbn is always one-sided! Dapat bang panoorin ang mga yan!

Korina Sanchez is using her influence to make it appear na talagang malawakan yong leakage kasi of what happened to her mother na she thought na victim of malpractice. Kaaway niya ang Phil. Medical Society and Phil. Nursing Association kasi sila yong magkasangga don sa senate ng meyrong inquiry tungkol nga sa Malpractice na she is pushing. Korina, huwag kang paranoid, you're making up stories just for your own evil intentions, kaya ka tuloy iniwan ni Mr. Palengke kasi praning kana! Guys, this woman is out to get our heads so we better make our move or she may sway everybody in believing na massive talaga yong nangyaring dayaan sa NLE. She's really a vicious bitch!

I think this is just a desperate move para sa mga gusto ng retake......Obviously if this girl doesn't have enough evidences sana sumama na siya sa senate last week kasama nila bautista and the rest.

ALL FOR THE LOVE OF MONEY AND FAME!

OPPORTUNISTIC & GREEDY INDIVIDUALS!

IS THIS THE KIND OF SUPPOSEDLY SEASONED JOURNALIST THAT WE HAVE NOW? PEOPLE IN DIFFERENT FIELDS SHOULD RESPECT EACH OTHER...SAME THING THAT JOURNALISTS SHOULD RESPECT US NURSES...KORINA AT KUNG SINO MANG WRITER REPORTER ANG GUMAWA NG TSIMIS NA ITO, HERE'S THE BASICS AT KAHIT BAGITONG NURSE AKO ALAM KO ANG RULES SA JOURNALISM...HINDI MO PWEDENG SABIHING BALITA ANG ISANG KUWENTO NA BASED LAMANG SA HEARSAYS...BIGYAN MO NANG MUKHA ANG "JANNA" NA ITO...MAARING MERON NGANG LEAKAGE SA TEST 5 AND PART NG TEST 3 (WHICH I REFUTE PERSONALLY KAHIT EXAMINEE DIN AKO NUNG JUNE)PERO MALAKING KALOOKOHAN KUNG PATI TEST 1 AND TEST 2 SASABIHIN NILANG MERON DING LEAK...THAT IS ABSURD AND FULL OF LIES...IS THIS UR DESPERATE MOVE TO HAVE US DESERVING PASSERS RETAKE THE NLE? U MAY BEGRUDGE US FOR WHATEVER REASONS YOU HAVE AGAINST US BUT PLEASE SPARE US FROM THIS KIND OF INTRIGUES...WE DESERVE A FAIR AND UNBIASED TREATMENT COZ PINAGHIRAPAN DIN NAMIN ITO MORE THAN YOU DO... WE ALSO WANT TO SERVE THE VERY PEOPLE THAT YOU SERVE...MIGHT AS WELL CHANGE THE NAME OF UR NEWS PROGRAM FROM "BANDILA" TO "BARUBAL NA DILA"...AND YOU WANT TO BE CALLED RESPONSIBLE JOURNALISTS?...GEEEZZZ!

I agree with you 14th poster especially the one you wrote in the last part hehehe........."BANDILA" TO "BARUBAL NA DILA"

ABS-CBN is playing with the hearts & minds of innocent viewers just to compete with GMA. Sadly, a lot of filipinos are gullible & succumbs to this type of garbage media format. BTW, Iv'e heard that Gabby Lopez smokes pot & sniffs coccaine? tsk tsk, kaya siguro puro utang na ang ABS-CBN..

Ang ABS-CBN "kapuso", kailangan na ng heart transplant.. hehe

I HATE ABS-CBN SPECIALLY KORENA,,, WALA NA KC SYANG K NA MABALITA KYA UNG BGAY NA WALA SYANG ALAM NAKIKIALAM PA SYA.... AT SA UST SKUL IF A KNOW DALAWA SA CUM LAUDE NILA ANG HINDI PUMASA KAYA GUSTO NILA NG RETAKE..... KUNG GUS2 TLGA NILA NG RETAKE DPAT CLA ANG GUMASTOS SA LAHAT NG MAG-RERETAKE KAHIT PA UNG NASA MINDANAO AT VISAYAS BIGYAN NILA NG PAMASAHE PAPUNTA NG MAYNILA PARA LNG MAG-RETAKE AT CLA RIN DPAT ANG GUMASTOS NG REVIEW NATIN KUNG MAY RETAKE

I'm a total "Kapamilya" supporter, but watching these news unfold and brodcasted in their news programs... I can only say that they are being BIAS and they are making baseless accusation on us board passer and retakers alike... And they are only basing their news on hearsays...

ABS-CBN should be aware of this by now

hay naku sarap pag untugin ni korina at nung janna. ang kakapal ng mukha mandamay ng ibang review centers. hello??? alam kaya ng alayas janna na yan ang pinagsasabi niya? walang blue book! mga reviewees ng PENTAGON walang leakage! sinugod nga ang pentagon after the june 11 and 12 exams ng ilang students kc wala daw sila napala sa final coaching. kaya korina bago ka mag ere ng balita siguruhin mo muna kung totoo. napaka trying hard mo compared sa Probe ni cheche lazaro.

I posted this as comment sa isang issue/topic dito. However, i think it would be good to share this here too...
Isa lang ang nais kong ilinaw...
It is quite inaccurate to say that 20% was purged from the June 2006 exams.
The more accurate way of saying it is that:
1) Test 3 was purged of 20% leaked questions. This means 20 questions were removed leaving 80 clean questions. The 80 questions were each given a weight of 1.25 to make the total for Test 3 to equal 100 points.
2) Test 5 results were taken as is but its raw value downgraded to 1/2 its original value of 20%. In other words, each of the tests (Tests 1 to 5) had 20% value each to total 100%. However, the value of Test 5 was downgraded to only 10% through the following formula:
Sum total of tests 1 to 4 divided by 4 plus sum total of Tests 1 to 5 divided by 5 all over 2 equals the score for Test 5.
I'll try to put it in figures...
Say your raw scores are as follows:
Test 1 = 79
Test 2 = 76
Test 3 = 75
Test 4 = 71
Test 5 = 77
Then, your grade for test 5 will be:
(79+76+75+71 / 4) + (79+76+75+71+77) / 5 / 2 = 301/4 + 378/5 / 2 = 75.25 + 75.6 / 2 = 150.85/2 = 75.425 not 77.
If you would analyze this formula, the value of Test 5 has been downgraded to a point where those who cheated really didn't benefit while those who played fair were not really short-changed.
If you got high grades in Tests 1-4 but did quite poorly in Test 5, chances are your Test 5 would go up. On the other hand, if you got poor grades in Tests 1-4 but got high marks in Test 5 (maybe because of the leak?), chances are your Test 5 results would go down.
Fair enough, isn't it?
I hope Dante Ang and those who say Tests 3 and 5 were invalidated, thereby making the June Board exam results questionable, should first study their lessons before they start yakking and yakking for a re-take.
Why would they not just follow up on...
a) the powerful and filthy-rich Mr Cordero whose "persuasive ways" make those who earlier testified under oath that indeed cheating was so blatantly exhibited prior to the exams would later recant so mysteriously?
b) also the powerful Mr Gapuz who would be so bold as to threaten blowing up a major TV network station because of the degrading media reports that resluted from his wanting to maintain "sterling" passing marks of his review center?
c) And the two BON and PRC-Baguio leakers who, I presume, benefitted financially well?
Indeed, why punish the innocent Board passers?
As to Channel 2. Ganyan talaga yan. Pasensya na lang tayo at kailangan nilang matalo ang Channel 7. Power hungry kasi yang mga yan e. Gusto palagi silang in control. Hindi nila ma-take na sapaw sila sa "network war" nung kabilang station. So now they're trying to play with us as pawns in their "network war" with the other channel.
Basta tayo, alam natin ang tutoo... we passed the Board exams fairly.

I STRONGLY CONDEMN WHAT THAT "JANNA" TOLD SA BANDILA. Y WONT SHE SHOW HERSELF? what if that janna is fake binayaran lang ng abs.. money talks! Why do i condemn her? because i attended the 3 short courses at pentagon. why? kasi they have excellent lectures. matututunan mo in 1 month sa pent yung na enroll mo ng 3-4 yrs sa school. and about the test 1 and 2 leaks that pentagon gave, bakit nandon ka ba? baka yung hear say na yan eh galing sa friend mong bagsak sa pentagon coz madaming bagsak sa pentagon this june. nandadamay lang yan para lahat nga naman ulitin. crab mentality. about the final coaching at pentagon, ok on june 11 after receiving the actual board questions, i looked for those given to us by pentagon, nanliit ako sa sarili ko dahil ni isa walang lumabas sa pentagon. and that test 2, of course sasabihin madaming leak yan dahil community lang yan, paulit ulit ang tanong dahil isang concept lang yan. whoever that janna is, i know you're a fake, why dont y reveal to us your real name so the review centers could look it up their list kung nag eexist nga ang pangalan mo.
and to those nursing STUDENTS who havent even finished school wag kayong makelan, madaling mag comment on your part dahil hindi kayo ang involved, hindi rin kayo ang mga nakapasa.
