MANILA, PHILIPPINES - Last July 19 and 20, 2023, the Professional Regulation Commission (PRC), together with the Professional Regulatory Board of Landscape Architecture headed by Hon. Paulo G. Alcazaren, Chairman, and Cecilia H. Tence, member, conducted Licensure Examination for Landscape Architects to one hundred and twelve (112) exam takers; wherein, sixty-four (64) had passed.

Aloc stressed that being open to new ideas allows her to solve design problems with creativity and practicality, she said, “Exploring innovative solutions entails stepping out of one’s comfort zone and thinking outside the box. Ultimately embracing new challenges with courage while remembering to face failures with resilience, have been instrumental in my licensure exam journey”.

Landscape Architecture strives for the unique opportunity to express one’s creativity in designing spaces and in problem-solving Aloc believed. Together with the newest batch of landscape architects shall continue the legacy of creating space that centers not only on the artistic aspect of designing, but also on the scientific process of planning, engineering, sustainability, environmental conservation, and human well-being.

Aloc also shared some studying tips for future exam takers. She suggests reading through different materials and references that will allow future test takers to have a broader understanding of the topics that may be covered, thus, helping one feel more confident in their knowledge.  She added, “It’s a mix of familiarization with understanding key concepts and how these can be applied in real-life situations.” Finally, increasing the chances of success in licensure examinations can be achieved through a balanced preparation and self-care.
