Manila & Hong Kong (November 14, 2020) – Further to the Institute’s announcement on October 27, 2020 about being awarded a contract by the CT-MRI Society of the Philippines (CT-MRISP) in holding its nation-wide board examination for practicing medical professionals in the Philippines, a qualification which is regulated by the Professional Regulation Commission (PRC) of the country, Wyith Institute™ is pleased to announce again today that the Institute has satisfied the CT-MRISP Board of Directors again with its online mock examination system during the final prototype test on November 14, 2020.

The examination system, which is to be launched to all the candidates in two weeks’ time, will also be the system to be used for the actual examination to be held in December 2020. This is the first time a national examination contract is awarded to Wyith Institute™ under the new normal.

“We are extremely excited about the system we designed being approved by the Board again as this is a government-regulated examination at the national level and we hope that our new examination system will not only be useful to CT-MRI professionals in the Philippines but also to many other professional institutions in other countries under the new normal.

We are now in rigorous discussion with a number of other interested professional institutions around Asia and the Oceania and we are confident that the way we at Wyith Institute™ securely delivers regulated board examinations will not only meet the highest standards of integrity and professionalism but also our unwavering commitment to ethics and protection of privacy”, commented Dr Raymond Cheng, President and CEO of Wyith Institute™.
