4) I failed the last time I took the BLEPP can I take again?
Yes you can. Read our post regarding requirements for repeaters here - 


5) What is the passing rate?
In section 18 of RA 10029. "Ratings in the Examination. - To be qualified as having passed the licensure examination for psychologists and psychometricians, a candidate must have obtained a weighted general average of at least seventy-five percent (75%) for all subjects, with no grade lower than sixty percent (60%) in any given subject. So, to be safe you must have a score of 75% or better for all subjects." Many of test takers are failing their Psychological Testing which is equivalent to 40%,  so even if you get a high score in the three other subjects but below 60% in Psychological Testing then the rest of your high scores will be pulled down and so tendency of failing the licensure exam. So the safest is to at least get 75% in all the subjects and not lower.  


6) What is conditional?
In Section 18 of RA 11029 "An examine who obtains a weighted general average of seventy-five percent (75%) or higher but obtains a rating below sixty percent (60%) in any given subject may retake such subjects within the next two (2) years, and upon obtaining a rating of at least seventy-five percent (75%) in each such subject, shall then be deemed to have passed the licensure examination." A case scenario would be an examinee who scored high on all three subjects but got 58% or 59% in Psychological testing, even if the examinee is high on the three subjects (say 90%  in all 3 subjects) thus earning a passing mark but failed one of the subject then the examinee's case  will be conditional. So he can retake again  (and should pass) only the subject s/he failed.


7) I did not show up during the examination day for some unforeseen reason, am I considered a repeater?
Yes since you have been counted as an examinee for that particular day. So your application will be as a repeater since you already have your documents filed with PRC.
