Good evening po. Saan po ang reviewer center nyo for nqesh specifically in CDO and Iligan City, Mindanao? Sad to say I'm not one of those lucky who passed the recent exam. I also read in some of the DepEd bloggers that there is a score swapping? How is that possible? Is that true?

One more thing po, can I request a copy of your nqesh reviewer so I may have something to study at home. You can email it at me if pag bbgyan nyo po requests ko.

Thanks and more power.
