Philippine Court Orders Some Students to Retake Nursing Test, INRESS, GAPUZ and PENTAGON Students to RETAKE?

Philippine Court Orders Some Students to Retake Nursing Test
By MARTHA ANN OVERLAND


Hoping to end the controversy around an examination scandal that caused some to question the competency of the Philippines' nursing graduates, an appellate court in Manila has ordered a "selective retake" of the national licensing test that was given in June.

The Court of Appeals ruled on Friday that only students who had attended one of three test-review centers where questions and answers were divulged would have to retake the examination. Students who had not attended those centers and had passed the examination should be immediately awarded their nursing licenses, the court said in an opinion written by Associate Justice Vicente Veloso.

Budek comment : INRESS, GAPUZ and PENTAGON Students to RETAKE? I do not know how reliable this international news agency is but the message was very clear. I am in DENIAL now, If this is TRUE most of the topnotchers last board exam will have to retake since the bulk of them came from gapuz. There are still no local news that mentioned anything about this. Maybe because the court order just issued this statement yesterday, and Saturday is a very dead day for newsmakers and the Internet OR.... The reporter just committed an error. Whatever it is, We have to wait for further news.

I think it would be very unfair to every student who reviewed in any one of the 3 review centers which were said to have the leakages to shoulder the burden of retaking the exam. If the court is to punish anyone... it has to be the2 BON members and the people whom they have dealt with in distributing the said manuscripts... The students here are the innocent victims of the corrupt system!!! They should in no way be convicted as having have committed a crime by retaking an exam they have successfully taken.

it would be unfair din sa mga nagreview ng walang leakage.

HOW CRUEL NAMAN!!!! Bakit naman ganyan, porque ba naman nagre-view sa review center na sinasabi nila nakinabang na sa leakage?????
Pano naman ako na ni wala akong alam at nakita na leakage na sinasabi nila????? at pano rin iyong iba?????

Ganoon na ba ngayon, kumo hindi nila ma-identify, para lang meron managot ay parurusahan lahat para lang masabi na meron silang nagawang mabuti na masama naman sa isang taong hindi naman nakinabang????

Kung meron man leakage kailangan ay patunayan pa rin nila kung nakarating sa student???? At iyon lang napatunayan ang siyang mag-retake???

Baka naman meron leakage eh iilan lang ang nakinabang then parurusahan lahat????

Parang impractical naman na dapat parusahan ang nakakarami or lahat pero wala naman silang mapatunayan.

Meron daw iilan, eh di siyang parusahan. Bakit mo naman ipipilit sa isang tao ang retake kung hindi mo naman napatunayan. Be Fair naman!!!!!

Ang government ni Gloria tadtad ng accussation na matindi ang dayaan at matindi ang cheating.

kung ganito rin lang na kukuha ang nag-review doon sa sinasabi nila na 3 review centers dahilan meron silang hinala, eh di isabay na lang ang retake at re-election ni Gloria. Ganoon pala ang basihan nila????

Parang mahina ang utak ng ganoon katuwiran na dahil sa identified raw na meron leakage ang tatlong review centers ay retake lahat ang nag-review sa kanila.

Parang gusto lang nila masabi na meron silang nagawa samantalang hindi pa naman nila mapatunayan kung nakinabang nga ang lahat na nag-review doon sa review centers na iyon.

Parang pinaliit lang nila ang volume ng mga bord passers para kaunti ang strength ng magrereklamo at makakasagupa nila.

NAPAKASAKIT!!!!!!!!!!AGUY!!!!!ARRAAYYY!!!!

Sa isang basket ng kamatis at meron isang bulok ay dapat iyon lang bulok ang alisin!!

Huwag naman itapon lahat!!!

Alam nyo kasi ang retake ay "MULTIPLE JEOPARDY" para sa isang nakapasa na. ganito yun...

1. Once na mag-retake ka ay parang sinabing bagsak ka na at uulit ka para makapasa at dito revoke na ang license mo.

2. Kung hindi ka makapasa ay siguradong kantyaw ang aabutin mo dahil iisipin nila na ikaw nga ang nag-cheat kaya hindi ka na nakapasa.

3. Masakit at maaaing mapaaway ka dahil sa mga naririnig mo at masakit isipin na dati meron kang license ngayon wala na.

4. Dahil sinabing pasado ka na, natural masayang masaya ka then all of a sudden bagsak ka na. Mapait di ba?

5. Marami na ang nagastusan dahil sa blow-out at marami na rin ang nakakaalam na pasado ka na then all of a sudden re-take ka pala. Ano ang masasabi nila at mapait ito sa pakiramdam

6. Kapag pasado ka na at mag-re-retake ka ay mababa ang moral mo at wala ka ng gana dahil mapait ang feelings mo at dito malamang na bumagsak ka.

7. Malaking pera ang nasayang at marami rin panahon ang uubusin

8. Hindi lang sa board passers masakit ang pangyayari kundi sa memebers of the family at mga mahal niya sa buhay

9. Marami ang magagalit at mawawalaan ng tiwala sa ating gobyerno at sa ating justice system

10. Hindi lang ito, I'm sure marami pang iba

dunfair yun tingnan muna nila kung talga ng benifit yung student doon at yung review center ba talaga ba meron tulad ng pentago neh wala naman doon pinipilitn nila meron

pamali mali na decision ngayon ang gugulo nila

isa ako sa mga nag review sa pentagon. recomputed or not ang grade, i passed the said exam, hindi pa ba sapat yun para masabi na competent ako para mabigyan ng license?

Nag review ako sa pentagon para makakuha ng techniques on how to answer the questions sa board exam. Nag enroll ako sa kanila dahil sa kanilang mock board. bakit? kasi prior sa board exam wala akong idea sa mga board exams, kung ano at paano ang board exam.

Hindi ako nagpunta sa pentagon para sabihin na oi oi oi mag eenroll at magbabayad ako pero kailangan bigyan nyo ako ng leakage!

I am sure na walang sino man sa mga nag review sa mga review center ang nagsabi ng ganoon, kaya bakit ninyo idadamay ang mga nag enroll sa kanila, may leakage o wala man.!

ang mahalaga recomputed or not ang grades, ipinasa ang exam!

For the reviewees of inress, gapuz and pentagon:
Do not be unnecessarily alarmed. I suggest that you try or coordinate with somebody who has a copy of the board decision. From the manila bulletin news(the most accurate so far) the retake shall only be required for those:
1)who attended the final briefing
2)who benefitted from the leakage.
3)subjected to NBI investigation
and after investigation shall be charged and convicted of cheating.
Under the law, benefiting from the leakage is not a punishable offense. What is punishable is dishonesty or cheating. There are still so many issues to be resolved. From the available facts nobody categorically says that the review material distributed are leakages.Remember this were distributed on a day or two before the examination. Even Atty. Mantaring find it difficult to prove that the examinees benefited because their are manyor some examinees who got the review materials(most likely including the leakages) who failed the exam. If ever what can be gathered are circumstancial evidences. In the meantime you are allowed to take your oath and get your licenses. For practical reasons it will take years to prove individually the guilt of each examinees. Remember the NBI declared difficulty and impractically to prove cheating of each individual examinees. Besides they also declared that they do not want to deprived the examinees of the chance to improve themselves. The news item is just the paraphrase made by the publisher.

ang alam ko walang leakage ang pentagon noh! mukang idinamay lang sila ng mga 'chuvaness' review center owners na dawit sa kaso ng leakage dahil inggit cla sa pentagon!... not to mention dennis bautista na isang sour graping flunker!

super galing at competent ng mga lecturers dun like valdez & jimenez! kung reviwee ka ng 'pentagon' at nakinig ka ng mabuti sa mga lectures nila... di mo na kailangan ang leakage... sa totoo lang noh!

It's really unfair to single out those students who reviewed in these 3 review centers... Since not all of them benefitted from the leakage...

And those who benefitted, like DENNIS BAUSTISTA even failed to pass the NLE! Classic EXAMPLE talaga itong si Dennis Bautista in proving that leakage was not enough to pass NLE... Even him can not claim that he benefited from leakage because he failed! With a total grade of 68.20% in all test (1-5). He really failed miserably! =(

From that fact alone, one could tell outright that the leakage was minimal in extent... Otherwise, Dennis Baustista, a 2nd courser, who reviewed in Pentagon, Inress & Gapuz, would have at least gotten a passing rate of 75%!

totoo ka dyan sister! walang 'leakage' ang pentagon!

ako nga, isang working student, parang 'sirang cd' na paulit-ulit kong pinapakinggan ang mga lectures ni valdez sa medical surgical habang nasa opisina e! pati sa pag-tulog ko kasama ko pa yung MP3 ko na may recorded lecture ng 'medical surgical' taught by Sir Valdez during the intensive review nung january-april 2006. kung naipasa ko man ang test 3 & 4 ito ay dahil sa lecture ni Sir Valdez, di dahil sa leakage noh! walang leakage ang pentagon!

ako din nag-review sa pentagon...

naasar nga ako nung first day nung NLE, kasi nung final coaching sabi nila sa pentagon baka may lumabas daw dun sa mga tips na ibibigay nila... E WALA NAMANG LUMABAS NOH!!!

buti na lang pumasa pa din ako!

pasalamat lang talaga ako kay Lord!
