'PRC erred anew in NLE grades recount'

'PRC erred anew in NLE grades recount'

http://www.abs-cbnnews.com/storypage.aspx?StoryId=53668

The Professional Regulation Commission again came under fire after at least 15 nursing graduates alleged that PRC had committed a mistake in recomputing all the test results of the leakage-marred Nursing Licensure Examination (NLE), ABS-CBN's Bandila reported Wednesday.

The report said the results of tests 1, 2 and 4 were included in the recomputation instead of only tests 1 and 3.

Based on the allegedly erroneous recomputation, PRC released a list containing 1,687 examinees who were required to retake the NLE.

A group of examinees from Baguio City said PRC's error in recomputing the grades proved that a manipulation of scores occured.

"Talagang lahat pala ng scores ng mga bata from Tests 1 to 5 were manipulated (Apparently, the scores of all the examinees from Tests 1 to 5 were manipulated)," Cheryl Yangot, a lawyer for the Baguio examinees, said.

She added that PRC's second mistake merely underscored allegations that the commission had erred in computing test results from the start.

An examinee, meanwhile, complained about the list of nursing graduates who were required to retake the NLE.

Mark Jedh Yutuc said that he was among those who passed based on the list that PRC released prior to the discovery of the leakage.

His name, however, was included on the new PRC list.

Labor Secretary Arturo Brion, who has direct authority over PRC, has confirmed receiving the affidavit of 15 nursing examinees about the commission's alleged error. He promised to have the complaint investigated.

More than 17,000 out of 42,000 examinees passed the June 11-12 NLE. However, they failed to take their oaths as new nurses after word of the leakage surfaced.

The Court of Appeals issued a temporary restraining order against the oath-taking of new nurses. It lifted the order last week and ordered selected examinees to take the exam again.

MALI si Atty. Yangot sa kanyang allegations. Arithmetic ito, hindi law, at hindi niya linya ito, kaya hindi siya dapat paniwalaan ng media. Tanga lang ang taga media na maniwala sa kanya.

The list of 1,687 retakers came about because of the recomputation that involved downgrading of test 5 to remove the effect of leakage. As a result of the realignment of weights of subjects aimed at giving more weight to clean subjects--a mild form of what the Supreme Court did in the 2003 bar exams where the leakage-tainted Mercantile Law was totally cancelled instead of merely downgraded yet retake was not ordered, a situation Atty. Yangot very well knows but ignores--those with high grades in test 5 but low grades in other subjects (say with 60% that was merely pulled up by high grade in test 5 to reach the required 75% passing average grade), were adversely affected, while those with high grades in clean subjects but low passing grades in Test 5 benefited.

Now, it is said that the recomputation is unfair to those who obtained low grades in clean subjects--but precisely the high grade in test 5 is leakage tainted and what is being done is to avoid retake of 17,000 passers. Those adversely affected or not satisfied are given the option to retake but the retake of 17,000 passers, MAJORITY of whom are evidently not involved in leakage, is avoided. Atty. Yangot does not have hard evidence that MAJORITY of the passers are guilty, yet she insists in wanting to harm them--a violation of presumption of guilt unless proven otherwise, not just to one person but to thousands of passers, as well as of the giving of the benefit of the doubt to those against which there are no conclusive evidences!!! She is giving more importance to the words of her client flunkers who despite the leakage did not pass--and are now shamefully demanding the retake of those who passed not because of the leakage but because they are competent--instead of confining the need for retake to themselves because they are the living proof that if one is not competent, one cannot pass even with benefit of leakage.

The recomputation done by PRC is a correct approach because it is just a mild form of what the Supreme Court itself, higher than the Court of Appeals (CA), did in the past. The PRC recomputation was ordered reversed NOT BECAUSE IT IS WRONG PER SE but as a matter of judgment by CA on the applicability under the situation of the recomputation--that based on evidence, there was NO WIDESPREAD LEAKAGE so that the downgrading of test 5 was not warranted. Therefore, had there been widespread leakage, depending on the Court's judgment, a downgrading or even cancellation of test 5 can be in order in lieu of retake. This is an option that hues to the precedent set by the Supreme Court and cannot said to be wrong as an option--it all depends on the circumstances. A situation directly comparable to the 2003 bar exams precedent will certainly justify such recomputation--Atty. Yangot should know this.

ano ba naman yan... pati simpleng computation complaint pinapa-media pa. halatang -halata na gusto lang mag-ingay nitong si Yangot e. at sobrang gustong guluhin ang nursing issue imbes na ayusin... sobrang papansin naman itong mga ito - si yangot, tadle & dennis bautista... may tawag dyan sa psychology e... HISTRIONICS!

What new about PRC....the only thing they could do right is collect fees for the board exam.....like most government agency. they are inefficient and corrupt.....

Sina Atty. Yangot, Tadle, Dennis Bautista, ABS-CBN, Manila Times, at mga kapanalig nila--alam nila ang postings dito sa Pinoy BSN. Huwag silang magtanga-tangahan na di nila alam. Kung mali ang explanation ng poster no. 1 dito tungkol sa recomputation--pakisagot nila at sabihin kung bakit mali punto por punto. Pero dahil ang recomputation ay based sa recomputation ng grades exclusive of Mercantile Law na ginawa ng Supreme Court sa 2003 leakage-tainted bar exams without retake, kailangang sabihin din nila na mali ang Supreme Court sa recomputation.

Kung hindi gagawin nila Atty. Yangot et al na i-prove na mali ang sinabi ng poster no. 1 at ginawa ng Supreme Court in the 2003 bar exams, o kung hindi man lang sila makasagot, ibig sabihin ang mali ay sila, na madaldal sila pero di nila kayang panindigan ang idinadaldal nila!!!

So let us wait for the reply of Atty. Yangot et al.

All Atty. Yangot has to do is go back to what her husband said as justification for no-retake in the 2003 bar exams and she should be enlightened, unless hers is intentional disregard of justice-- or the grounds for no-retake-- because of her flunker-complainant clients.

ATTY YANGOT HAS PERSONAL AGENDA... THAT IS TO PULL ALL 2006 BOARD PASSERS DOWN!... TSK! TSK! SHE'S A SELF-RIGHTEOUS BITCH! YOU SHOULD HAVE SEEN HER IN DEBATE, SHE'S OBNOXIOUS & ARROGANT PERSON!... TO STEAL THE LIMELIGHT LANG TALAGA INTENSION NYA SA NURSING CONTROVERSY...

Ako, naniniwala pa rin kay Tadle, Yangot, et al. Tanggapin na natin na nagkamali ang PRC. Pati nga mismo Court of Appeals, sinabing mali sila.

Go, go, Tadle et al. Mga idol namin kayo.

Yangot, Tadle, et al, idol ng flunkers at di marunong mag-isip. Yung mga unang comments, sinabi kung bakit mali sila. Ang sagot ng fans nila, mali PRC at hindi sila Yangot, et al. In other words, ang sagot ay CONCLUSION, WITHOUT SUBSTANTIATION for the conclusion. Palpak mag-isip, di kayang sagutin ang charges against Yangot et al!!!

e kaya ganun mag-isip mahina sa ANALYSIS... for sure flunker yan... or na-brainwash na passer from UST. tsk!tsk!

suggestion ko...

guys, if u flunk u should study hard na lang so that u'll sure to pass next NLE...

there's no point to pull everybody down w/ u... u'll just make the competition much stiffer pag di naka move on yun mga passers...ur chances of passing next NLE will get slimmer pati, if maging 60,000+ ang test takers next NLE... let the passers go...

the pie is big enough for everyone...

let's stop joining the bandwagon of TADLE & YANGOT... they don't even have that coveted RN title we're hoping for... nakikigulo lang sila at gustong atang mag-artista... sa totoo lang...

Guys, huminahon kayo. Narinig ninyo ba yung comment sa radyo na ang mga anti-retake e masyadong emotional at di na logical, at bastos na? Sabi pa nung isang Senator, di na raw natin ipinapakita ang virtues ng TLC. Kaya, para maka-gain tayo ng support, let us be reasoable at wag mamersonal. Alam naman natin na tayong passers lang at parents natin ayaw ng retake but if you ask the public, gusto lahat retake. So let us behave para madagdagan fans natin.

Si Tadle at Yangot, gustong mag-artista, parang si Grace Urquiaga at si Renato Aquino. Naku, ang guapo-guapo ni Renato. Mas guapo siya kay Marky Cielo. Si Grace- puede rin siya, bilang nanay ni Renato. Bagay niya kasi motherly plump, masungit at fif na fit sa kanya ang mga daster na mabibili sa Baclaran.

BITCH TALAGA SI ATTY. YANGOT PERO MAS BITCH ANG KAKOSA NATING SI GRACE "THE BOXER" PACLEB. NAPANOOD KO SILANG DALAWA SA VIEWPOINTS. WAG NAMAN SI GRACE ANG IHARAP KAY ATTY. YANGOT. MARAMI SA ATIN ANG MAS MAGALING MAGSALITA SA ABUGAGANG IYON. BAKIT SI GRACE IHAHARAP? PARA TULOY TAYONG BASAHAN.

KASI NAMAN, ANO BA ANG SINABI NIYA SA VIEWPOINTS? ANG YABANG NIYA. KESYO DI DAW SIYA NAGREVIEW PARA PUMASA SIYA. THERE ARE MANY WAYS OF PASSING- LEGAL AT ILLEGAL. WAG NAMAN SANA SIYANG MAYABANG. WALA PALANG SILBI SA KANYA ANG LOCAL BOARD KAYA GANUN ANG ATTITUDE NIYA. GINAGAMIT LANG NIYA ANG ISSUE PARA MADISCOVER NA MAG-ARTISTA. HAUGHTY ANG DATING NIYA. PURO SILA NA LANG ANG NAGSASALITA FOR OUR GROUP E DI NGA SIYA CREDIBLE KASI NAKAKA-TURN-OFF ANG ARRIVE NIYA. MALAKAS MASYADO ANG HANGIN! SI TOTO NA LANG LAGI DAPAT! O MGA FIRST COURSERS. SA DAMI BA NAMAN NATIN NA ANTI-RETAKE NA FIRST COURSERS, NI ISA, WALA SILANG MAKITA NA PUEDENG MAGSALITA FOR US. IMPOSIBLE. NOT UNLESS GUSTO NILANG SILA LANG PARA NGA SUMIKAT!

FYI, DI AKO KASAMA SA MAGRE-RETAKE NA 1687!!!

Napanood din namin ang Viewpoints. Hindi naman bitch si Atty. Yangot dun. Type nga siya ni Jomag e. Bistado ka pare. Di ka naman kilala.

Tingin ko naman, tama ang sinabi ni Atty sa Viewpoints. Kung puede sana walang retake kasi unjust. Pero mas unjust nga naman ang walang retake. Kasi sa stigma. Wag nga tayong magpakabulag. May stigma talaga. Paano natin tanggaling iyon? No retake???

Retake and punish the guilty.

One more point pala- Walang coveted RN title si Tadle at Yangot??? Hoy, gising! Sa talino ng dalawang iyon, gusto ba naman nilang maging nurse? If I have the brains of Yangot, nag-law sana ako. Kaso wala kaya nagnursing na lang. If I have the brains of Tadle, mag-hihistory sana ako para ituro ko si Rizal. Kaso wala, kaya nag-Nursing ako. O, Joms, sinabi ko na ang gusto mong sabihin.

e kaya lang mas masaya sa nursing e noh! di lang 'national' ang impact, pati 'international'... gawa ng mga matatandang talangka na tulad ni Dean Tuazon!

at basta ang alam ko lang na galit kay grace urquiaga ay si luis tadle! ang tsismis nga sa rally sa liwasang bonifacio, ayaw na daw magturo ni Tadle ng Rizal mag-aartista na lang daw sya ka love team si Grace! nyehehehe!

gulo at immature ninyo huh! :P

Hahaha. Si Tadle at Grace mag-loveteam? Sana nga, mag-artista ang dalawa at wag na tayong pakialaman. Bagay silang dalawa.

mga kasama, huwag mag bulag bulagan naman. habang tayo ay nag kakaiba ng posisyon tungkol sa maraming bagay tungkol sa kontrobersyang ito, huwag nting payagan sino man na maapakan ang propisyon na ating ipinaglalaban. itaas and bandila ng narsing sa pamamagitan ng ating mahinahon at mpag-respito sa bawat isa kahit na di tayo parepreho sa pananaw. alam kung gusto natin na irespeto tayo ng ibang tao/propisyon. simulan natin sa ating hanay. isng magandang umaga

Mga kasama, nakuha ko ito sa ABS-CBN Forum. Maramin ang pro-retake doon. Di gaya dito, iilang tao lang nagpopost na anti-retake at parang maramin sila.

From ABS-CBN

This is good for humor DH but seriously, the cabinet used a simple Cost Benefit Analysis and had a look at statistics to justify the retake. This is how it probably went:

What is at stake here? The reputation and integrity of around 137,000 Filipino health care workers deployed worldwide, mostly in the middle east, north America, Europe (specially UK), Netherlands, high income asia, and future japan. These nurses remit an average of $ 2.2 Billion US Dollars per annum.

How much will is cost to fund the retake of 17,821 nurses? Inclusive of logistics, lunch and some pocket money to take home? Less than $ 2 Million US Dollars. That’s quite cheap isn’t it?

What can we further gain with a retake? The continued outflow of approximately 13,000 nurses per annum, in addition to the 137,000 who will get to keep their jobs after a retake. The Philippines will continue to enjoy an inflow of over 2$ Billion US Dollars, which is also increasing by approximately $200,000 Million US dollars per annum, at an accelerating rate. Most priceless of all is the peace of mind that Filipinos will continue to be the most trusted race to fill in the ever increasing demand of registered nurses in the future.

Considering these figures, seems like a retake is not such a bad deal for the Philippines after all?
I therefore propose that we change the title of this forum to "LET'S DO A RETAKE!!! - JUSTICE FOR ALL"""

oo yun mga pro-retake dun sa abs-cbn forum ay di updated sa issue kasi di naman talaga sila affected dahil hindi nursing board takers...
