CPA Board Exam Results October 2017

Administration of the CPA Board Exam

14,816 examinees took the Certified Public Accountant Licensure Examination which was administered by the PRC Board of Accountancy headed by its Chairman, Mr. Joel L. Tan-Torres and its members, Eliseo A. Aurellado, Gerard B. Sanvictores, Gloria T. Baysa, Concordio S. Quisaot and Samuel B. Padilla at the PRC testing centers in Manila, Baguio, Cagayan de Oro, Cebu, Davao, Iloilo, Legazpi, Lucena, Tacloban and Tuguegarao.


The PRC has finally released the results of the October 2017 CPA Board exam after 10 working days. Only 4,511 examinees out of 14,816 or 30.45% passed the October 2017 CPA Board exam.

Initially, the PRC announced that it would release the results in 8 working days after the administration of the CPA licensure examination. But in an announcement on October 16, 2017 by the Board of Accountancy, the results would be released in October 20 (Friday) or October 21 (Saturday), 2017.

From November 9 to November 21, 2017, registration for the issuance of Professional Identification Card (ID) and Certificate of Registration will be done on-line. Please go to and follow instructions for initial registration. Those who will register are required to bring the following: duly accomplished Oath Form or Panunumpa ng Propesyonal, notice of admission (for identification only), 2 pieces passport sized pictures (colored with white background and complete name tag), 2 sets of documentary stamps and 1 piece short brown envelope. Successful examinees should personally register and sign in the Roster of Registered Professionals.

The date and venue for the oathtaking ceremony of the new successful examinees in the said examination WILL BE ANNOUNCED LATER.

However, in a recent update by the Board of Accountancy, they have stated that the results of the CPA Board Exam for October 2017 shall be released on November 2 or 3, 2017, which deviates far beyond the previous estimated release date.

Here's a statement released by the PRC explaining the reason why the release date of the CPA Board Exam Results was delayed:

"Due to the cancellation of government office work this week (due to the transport strike) which resulted in the delay of the processing of PRC work, the new release date of the results of the October 2017 CPA Examinations will be on November 2 or 3, 2017, instead of the previously announced date of October 20/21, 2017"
