DepEd opens registration for placement test

The Department of Education is opening the door for out of school children and youth to go back to formal school or land a job by offering the 2012 Philippine Educational Placement Test (PEPT).

“Our modest contribution to nation-building is to give our youth a fighting chance to succeed in life through the placement test,” said Education Secretary Br. Armin A. Luistro FSC.

The test result will determine the grade or year level appropriate for the test taker. PEPT covers all grade/year level from  Grade 1 to Fourth Year high school so that takers can have a chance to move to the next grade or year level  or even complete basic education in just one examination. “That is possible if they are doing home schooling or if they have acquired enough knowledge and life skills,” Luistro explained.

The exam covers the regular DepEd curriculum which are English, Math, Science and   HEKASI for elementary and Araling Panlipunan for high school. They could also be given a certificate of rating attesting that they are qualified to go to high school or college depending on the score they obtain.

Interested parties may register at DepEd’s division offices nationwide from March 5 to May 25, 2012. The documentary requirements are Form 137/138, birth certificate and two 1 x 1 pictures. The division testing coordinators are directed to submit the actual number of registrants to DepEd’s National Educational Testing and Research Center (NETRC).

“We want the test takers to upgrade their academic level so that when they pass, they can re-enter the formal school system, land a job or even get a job promotion,” added Luistro.

PEPT registrants are encouraged to avail of learning modules prepared by the Bureau of Alternative Learning Systems, the Bureau of Elementary Education and the Bureau of Secondary Education or any other learning resources available in DepEd’s regional or division offices. They can use these learning modules to review before the exam or even after as part of their continuing education. 

The exam will be administered for free on June 12, 2012, as part of DepEd‘s celebration of the country’s 114th Independence Day.
