On-the-Job training at farms, plants, laboratories, or other establishments or group involved in agriculture may also be arranged by the school you are enrolled in to give you a closer look at how professional agriculturists work.

    • Hi, Marilou!

      We’re sorry, but we’re afraid we’re not too sure what you meant by LEA. Could you have been referring to the licensure exam for agriculturists? If so, as far as we know, there are no deadlines when it comes to up to when you can take the licensure exams. If you want to be sure, though, we suggest you contact the Professional Regulatory Commission so they can give you a more accurate reply.


  10. maam/sir;

    i want to ask for the latest copy of reviewer for agriculture. where can I get a copy of this?.

    Hoping for your reply maam/sir..



    • Hi, Mitz!

      We’re sorry, but as much as we’d like to help, we do not have any available information regarding where to get a copy either. We suggest you try to search for forums frequented by students who have already taken their respective board exams. Someone might be able to help you out.

      Good luck!

  11. i would like to retake again in LEA,what should i do if i failed a 3 subjects like,cropscience,animal science and extension..

    • Hi, Manuel!

      Thanks for visiting our site.

      As much as we’d like to help, we’re afraid we’re not sure how to proceed either. It’s best if you’ll contact the official representatives of PRC so they can tell you what to do.


  12. gud pm! pwede po ba mkahingi ng mga possible questions and answers para sa agriculture board exam? tnks!

    • Hi, Richard!

      Thanks for visiting our site.

      As much as we’d like to help, we don’t have a list of possible questions and answers for the board exams on file. πŸ™ If we do come across such information, we’d post them on the site. For now, you could probably try your luck at forums frequented by students or recent graduates. They might have some tips that you can use.


  13. Hello,we are interested to continue study on Rubber production NC11.

  14. hi..gud you have a reviewer in pdf form for agriculture board exam??

    • Hi, Khid!

      Thanks for visiting our site.

      Unfortunately, we haven’t come across any such reviewer yet. We’ll be sure to update our posts if and when we do, though.


  15. meron po bang website para makapag review ng agricultural licensure examination.. or website para makapag download ng sample test question?

    • Hi, Erwin!

      Thanks for visiting our site.

      We’re sorry but we have no available information regarding reviewers for the licensure exams as of now. We’re working on it, though, so we’ll update our posts as soon as we come across such information.


  16. do you offer distance learning in BS Agriculture? im a government employee and i want to finish a degree in agriculture.

    • Hi, Edward!

      Thanks for visiting our site.

      Unfortunately, we haven’t heard of any schools that offer BS Agriculture online. If you want to obtain a degree in agriculture but you’ll have some trouble with your work schedule, the next best option that we can think of is pursuing the degree through the Expanded Tertiary Education Equivalency and Accreditation Program (ETEEAP).

      From what we know, it allows working professionals to finish 4 or 5-year degree programs at a faster rate and they can also attend classes on weekends. The lessons are conducted in actual classrooms and not online, though.


      We just came across Don Mariano Marcos Memorial State University Open University which lists BS Agriculture as one of its course offerings. You could probably contact them so they can tell you more about their program.


  17. hello poh,,,
    papano po kaya magiging process kapag halimbawa nasa ibang bansa pa sa ngayon,,,

    • Hi, Christine!

      Thanks for visiting our site.

      So far, we haven’t heard of any schools in the Philippines that offer BS Agriculture online, so we’re afraid you might have to come home to the Philippines if you want to pursue a BSA degree. That’s just from what we know, though, so you might still want to ask around for more information. You can find the list of schools in the Philippines that have a BS Agriculture program on the post above. You could probably contact them to check if they have a corresponding online program.

      Good luck! πŸ™‚

      • Palawan State University (PSU) is offering BSA now

        • Hi, Frami!

          Thanks for the info. The post has been updated to include PSU in the list of schools offering the course. πŸ™‚

  18. can a person who did not graduate in bs agriculture take the licensure exam?

    • Hi, Ranvier!

      Thanks for visiting our site.

      So far, we haven’t heard of graduates of other courses being allowed to take the licensure exam. We are not affiliated with PRC, though, so it would be best if you’ll contact them directly so they can confirm it for you.


  19. when will be the exam this 2012?reqt’s needed?thanks
