Manila, September 25, 2013 – The Professional Regulatory Board of Interior Design recently issued a resolution prescribing the percentage weights for the subjects in the Board Licensure Examination for Interior Designers.
The Board of Interior Design, in its issuance of Board Resolution No. 3 dated September 3, 2013, mentioned that the rationale for prescribing the percentage weight for each of the licensure examination subject is to underscore which examination subjects are of major or minor relevance or importance in the actual practice of a given profession.
“The apportionment of percentage weights is intended to gauge more effectively the individual examinee’s proficiency in the various component subjects of the licensure examination”, the Board said.
The Board, in consultation with members of the academe, the Council of Interior Design Educators and the Philippine Institute of Interior Designers, made a determination of the percentage weight that corresponds to each of the subject in the board exam as:
|Furniture Design and Construction||15%|
|Materials of Design and Decoration||10%|
|History of Arts and Interior Design||10%|
|Interior Construction and Utilities||10%|
|Professional Practice and Ethics||10%|
The prescribed percentage weights for the subjects will be implemented in the October 1, 2 and 3, 2013 and every subsequent Board Licensure Examination for Interior Designers.
