Proxy examinee caught at teachers’ licensure exam

Proxy examinee caught at teachers’ licensure exam

A teacher who was supposed to take the licensure exams in Zamboanga City will be facing administrative complaint after watchers found out that another person showed up to serve as a proxy.

For the Professional Regulation Commission said this was plain and simple cheating.

The proxy examinee was nabbed on the spot by agents of the National Bureau of Investigation “during the conduct of the exam,” the PRC said.

The impostor was prevented from taking the test through the “vigilant and prudent action taken by the PRC examination personnel in verifying the identity of the examinees,” the commission said.

The suspect was brought to the NBI’s office in Pagadian City, “for the institution of applicable criminal charges,” the PRC said.

The commission did not disclose the identities of the alleged impostor and the teacher who allegedly sent that person.

The teacher would face an administrative complaint “for violation of the General Instructions to Examinees.”

“The PRC exercises vigilance in ascertaining the identity of the persons taking the licensure examination and employs rigorous authentication procedures to deter the acts of proxy testing,” the commission said.
