    Hi same case here Myca, I’m from batch 2010 though.. but I don’t think meron ng limit or refresher course about that. Coz if so, it should be announced by the BON or so. So I came back here sa Pinas and leave my job in Bangkok. To take another risk & shot, I enrolled sa review center already for this upcoming November board exam. We just don’t give up on our profession do we? 🙂
    Everything is in His timetable. Maybe it’s our time this year. So cheer up!
