Can the Courts Compel Re-correction of Board Examination?

Posted by lexforiphilippines on July 27, 2010

In the recent consolidated cases of Antolin vs. Domondon, et al. (G.R. No. 165036; 5 July 2010) and Antolin vs. Fortuna-Ibe (G.R. No. 175705; 5 July 2010), involving a CPA Board examinee’s prayer for re-correction of her examination by the Board of Accountancy, the Supreme Court held that any claim for re-correction or revision of her examination cannot be compelled by the court.  The High Court reiterated its previous ruling in the case of Agustin Ramos vs. Sandoval (G.R. No. 84470, 2 February 1989), where it dismissed an action to compel the Medical Board of Examiners and the Professional Regulation Commission to re-correct the petitioning examinees’ ratings, explaining that the function of reviewing and re-assessing the answers to the examination questions was a discretionary function of the Medical Board, not a ministerial and mandatory one.
