  1. Good Morning!
    My name is Janine B. Tagulabong, BEEd Major.”
    I have concerned regarding with the Brown Envelope that we can buy to the PRC Office. I filed last July 18, 2016 (Monday) at Cebu City for the Sept.2016 LET. My place of examination will be at Bacolod City. This is the problem, the moment when I am about to buy the envelope they asked where will I take the exam? I said Bacolod. The Cashier said, Buy in Bacolod City.”
    But the Bacolod-PRC did not have enough Envelopes that time. Can I use another Brown Envelope that is/was not prescribed by the PRC?
    Hoping for your positive Response.
    GOD Bless and More Power!
