A lot of us was confuse, some says that November 2009 will be the last chance for the BSE major in LS and other LIS graduates other than the BLIS and MLIS. But based on the talk of Mrs. Elizabeth R. Peralejo, Board for Librarians during our class at the University of Philippines, she stressed out that only repeater and graduates of BLIS, MALIS, MSLIS and MLIS will be allowed to take the 2009 LLE. Fresh graduates of other courses (e.g. BSE Major in Library Science) are no longer allowed. This clarification was based on the Republic Act No. 9246, Article III. Section 15: The Qualifications of Applicants for LLE. Based on this section, ” Graduate of Bachelor’s degree in Library Science and Information Science: Provided, that a holder of Information Science shall be allowed to qualify for application to the Licensure examinations. Provided, further, that within five (5) years from the effectivity of this Act (March 16, 2004), holders of the following degrees shall also be allowed to qualify for application to the licensure examination. 2
