SPES Exam 2016 scheduled on March 12

TAGBILARAN CITY, Mar. 10 (PIA)--The provincial government of Bohol is again helping students earn this summer for something to spend for the next school opening.

Specifically, the Program aims to help poor but deserving students pursue their education by providing income or augment their income through encouraging their employment during summer and/or Christmas vacations.

The SPES exam is scheduled on Saturday, March 12 from 8:30 a.m. to 11:30 a.m. only at Bohol Island State University (BISU) Main Campus in Tagbilaran City.
