More Tips When Taking the LET

By on Jul 29, 2011 in Education | 42 comments

I already wrote 10 tips on taking the Licensure Exam for Teachers, but I remembered something last night that I missed sharing. It is about my experience when answering some math questions. Anyway, here’s tip #11: When trying to solve math problems manually (paper and pen), make an effort to organize your solutions. At any empty corner of the solution you just wrote, write the number of the question that solution was for. Then encircle this number or use any symbols you would like. Then, box the entire solution with the number in it or at least separate that section with a line from the other solutions you have. This way, if you are unable to solve a problem quickly you can easily go back to it later on and see what you already have done for that question. You don’t have to do this with every math question you are trying to solve. Do this with questions you decided to give...

Passing the board exam for teachers or the Licensure Exam for Teachers (LET) demands a lot of time and mental effort. Sometimes, the money is also needed to review on review centers. However, for those who have decided to study on their own, finding review guides online may be hard. Well, they can but the results of online research may be unorganized. Not to mention that such activity requires patience, determination, and resourcefulness. Anyway, if you were like me whose focus is English for LET [well, it's really Mass Communications with 18 units of Educ.] or majored in English in College, you may want to take a look at these online resources I gathered. It is your own responsibility and judgement on how to make use of these resources I found. LITERATURE: 35% Identify the literary pieces and figures that left significant marks in the library of nations and people. Draw out universal...

I received a lot of requests for a TLE reviewer for Licensure Exam for Teachers(LET); so, I decided to create a guide. My specialization was English, so please, consider my background as well when I did the following guide. What I mean by that is I did not take classes on TLE in college so my judgement may not be as good as yours. However, I had drafting and electricity classes in high school which were among my favorite subjects. Please consider reading the disclaimer as well as another tip from me.

Minimum Units Required on the Licensure Exam for Teachers (LET)

By on Jun 9, 2011 in Education | 193 comments

It is often asked on this blog what’s the minimum education units required to register for the licensure examination for teachers. It is 18. Perhaps the confusion arose from the rumors that PRC would increase the minimum to at least 30 units soon.  However, until now, there is no memo issued regarding this. In PRC’s official website, it has a page where you can find a list of the requirements for non BSE or BSED graduates. Below the list is the minimum number of units. It shows 18 units for all Bachelor’s degree except for those who have Bachelor’s Degree in Arts and Sciences (where 10 units is the minimum requirement). If you still doubt the information in their webpage, please visit the nearest PRC office in your area to ask an officer in person. The 18 units minimum requirement is under R.A. 4670 which is the Magna Carta for Public School Teachers. Also, on...

The Professional Regulation Commission (PRC) of the Philippines has shared through their website a document showing what competences they are testing on the examinees. See the document through this link. UPDATE: PRC has changed the design and structure of their official website. The document I downloaded in June is not found in their server anymore, or they have moved it on a different URL. The competences are grouped into three major sections: General Education, Professional Education, and the subject specializing in (choose the subject you are majoring in).  After reviewing the document,  I created the pointers to review below. Use these to identify your strengths and weaknesses, which will then lead you to better study plans and collecting better reviewers for the exam. Example of a study plan: Study first the topics you are weak in, and review subjects you are strong in later on....
