Towards the end of the program, those who were able to submit all problem
sets and take all daily exams are eligible to take a series of Board-type
subject examinations we call the Battery. This Battery is free, though a
deposit is required to ensure following test rules. Checking and ranking (vs.
our databases) costs a low PHP75 for the four exams!
Those able to take the Battery qualify to enroll in the discussion sessions on
the Battery exam items. For BRAINS reviewees, this costs as low as PHP
400 for one subject and PHP 990 for all four subjects! Recommended only for
those who score low in the battery exams. High scorers may be admitted
when slots are available.
Discounted rates apply to students who are able to meet these attendance
For sections A1, A2, E, and any other 4-hour per meeting schedule, students
who qualify for the discounted rates must have made no more than 4 session
For sections B and W, students who qualify for the discounted rates must
have made no more than 2.5 session absences.
Those who want to discuss the exams and problem sets may join our
preceptorial sessions to do just that. You must have completed the
exams and problem sets to join these sessions. Former reviewees of
BRAINS who will score at 38 percentile and up in our diagnostic
Board simulation may be accepted into this program. Applicants from
other review centers may also be admitted, but must show proof of
enrollment, and take the diagnostic test. This add-on is not
recommended for high scorers, but they may also be admitted,
depending on the availability of slots.
For non-BRAINS reviewees and our former students, note that you
need to be highly motivated to work without lectures for this option.
You must also allot time to take the exams and solve the problem
sets on your own.
Number of exams and problem sets = 45
Number of preceptorial hours = 24
Individuals who have never reviewed, or reviewed several years ago,
and got very low scores in the diagnostic tests will not likely benefit
from the preceptorials. Please enroll in the regular program.
Enrollment for these services are strictly on-site only.
