PRC sorry for error on CPA board exam passers list

The Professional Regulation Commission on Monday issued an erratum on the list of passers of the CPA Licensure Examination conducted in October 2012.

The list “indicated that the University of the Philippines – Visayas – Cebu City did not have any board passers,” PRC said, adding that “UP Visayas Cebu City does not offer Accountancy as a course.”

The commission explained that the error occurred when the examinee chose the option of “University of the Philippines – Visayas – Cebu City” instead of “University of the Visayas – Cebu City” from the drop down menu while filling out her online application form.

The erroneous data generated by the system was subsequently published along with the results, PRC said further.

PRC apologized to UP Visayas – Cebu City for the “oversight.”
