PHilippine NCLEX

Posted

a candidate was not able to seat for the exam because here passport has no signature. to all candidate be sure you affix your signature on your passport

really? they didn't gave her a chance to at least sign the passport?

by the way, i have an inquiry, would the next question appear if you clicked the NEXT button but have no answers? pls answer this.. thanks!

Moving this to the International Forum, since it is not specific to the Philippines. The same rule applies to all that test anywhere. A passport is not acceptable ID if it is not signed. And the Philippines is only a testing center for a US exam. The same rules that apply all over the world apply to there.

Legally, they cannot accept it if it is signed at the last minute in front of them. That is the same anyplace.

Please keep posts to the topic at hand, which is that passports must be signed. Anything having to do with the exam, needs to go under another thread.

does the signature have to be your full name???

Just your usual signature.

You can put your full name in print (if it's not too long) and then your signature above or beside it.

an acquiantance of mine was not able to sit for the NCLEX in Hong Kong last year for the same reason.

Dont forget to sign your passports before going to the testing center

mam i think my post is not off the topic. knowing that the title of this thread is Philippine NCLEX is justifiable enough for me to post it here. there are no specifics in the thread's title that limit it to the passport issue. the first post may center on such topic (i.e. passport) but it is not limited to such because the specified topic by the one who made the thread is broad enough to even cover my inquiry.

my inquiry happened while i was taking the exam here in the philippines. so i think it did not defeat the topic at hand. it was called for.

thanks! i would appreciate it if someone would be answering my inquiry. thanks anew!

Really to save on fraud the passport should be signed as soon as it is recieved.

Here in the UK you have to sign the application form and then the signature is transferred onto the appropriate page and sealed to cut down on fraud

Just your usual signature.

I think i made some mistake in this regard.

Someone adviced me prior to sending my papers for nclex application that i should have a signature that has all the letters in my name. so i created a signature specifically for nclex, disregarding my usual signature. The thing is, i have forgotten the signature I created specifically for this. Will they compare the signature in the nclex application and the passport signature? And if they see that they are not the same, would they prohibit me from taking the exam?

Thanks in advance.:uhoh3:

Although, I am not sure if they will compare it but if they do then they may either prohibit you from taking it or disregard the test if it was only found out afterwards. This is the very soon for the signatures anyway and for identity protection, to make sure no one will proxy for the actual applicant. And you will be signing-in your signature again on an electric pad or whatever they call it and take your digital picture before they let you in.

All of the above are measures to make sure that the one who applied and the one taking it are one and the same person. It will be up to them to decide. If the points of errors and discrepancy are too great then they may just either prohibit you outright depending on the discretion of the one in charge (he or she is trained to spot it - that is his or her main job and not just a front desk officer) or it may come later on after the exams, if somehow the on-the spot signing-in and digital pic taken on the test center was later found out to not match those with the application form with the State BON/BRN or has points of discrepancy.

And another thing that some are not aware of is that the e-mail add. provided in the application form from the State BON must also match the e-mail add. provided on the on-line Pearson-Vue registration form. This may not be enough on it's own but this is an example of a point of discrepancy and as more errors like this are committed and pile up then the greater the likelihood of suspicion of identity fraud and use of proxy, whether it is intentional or just pure carelessness.

Remember, they don't accept applicants that only signs their passports on the day of the exam - that's how strict they are.

In my opinion, for those who gave a diff. signature on their application form and could not remember it anymore will just have to sign-in w/ their usual signature henceforth rather than trying to remember it then signing-in another variation of the signature that is diff. from the application, diff. from the on the spot signing-in and diff. from his usual signature. This just gives more points of discrepancies. Some are more forgiving if they compare one w/ just a printed name and one with the usual signature.

I believe the confusion on signatures come from the "CGFNS experience" or the famous line, "SIGN ENTIRE NAME"(maybe present in some other documents/forms, not just CGFNS) . Unless such is being asked, sign with your usual signature, the one which you really use like in the passport.

Okay, to make it clear, you are advising that i sign with with my usual signature? Actually, i believe i haven't signed my passport yet as i was having second thoughts to sign with my usual or with my "application signature."

I havent taken the CG yet. Through your post, i just realized that the one who advised that i sign with my entire name DID take the CGFNS. Tsk. As if reviewing for the exam is not enough to cause worries... :uhoh3: :trout:

okey.. thank you for the clarifications:)

This is because you mentioned you don't remember what's your "application signature". The way I see it, there's really not much choice on your part but to sign-in w/ your normal or usual signature, otherwise you will be creating another signature w/c was the cause of your problems in the 1st place.

It's your call on what to do. It's just a suggestion or an advice but signing-in w/ your usual signature can't be a guarantee of anything as well, it's just that coming up w/ another one will just make it worse. It's still their call on what to do and no matter what you do anyway, your "application signature" will be different to the signature you choose to sign-in w/ your passport and on the on-the-spot signing-in. The damage has been done and attempting to replicate your "application signature" w/c you can't will just make it worse as it is. What if they will ask you to present another valid ID (w/c has your usual signature already) for comparison. Just imagine, on what will happen. You will now have 3 diff. signatures and like I said people are more forgiving if the other one was a printed full name and the other is the usual signature. It's a common occurrence but with 3 totally different signatures, they might suspect otherwise.
