    1. Hi, have you graduated your MLIS? As far as I know, the requirement based on the law (RA 9246) is that you need to have finished the degree and required din sa PRC ang diploma and/or TOR. You may ask PRC to confirm this.

  6. ...Ma'am, paano po malaman kung ano ang nakuhang grade sa bawat kategorya ng librarian exam 2022-di po pasa...salamat po
