Iloilo City – School drop outs, out-of-school youths and adult illiterates are given the chance to get quality education through the accreditation and placement tests administered by the Department of Education (DepEd).

The DepEd annually administers two tests: the Accreditation and Equivalency (A & E) Test and the Philippine Educational Placement Test (PEPT) to reach out to all kinds of learners, especially those outside the formal school system.

Education Secretary Jeslie Lapus said the agency is working hard to bring education where the learners are and in their own circumstances.

The A&E comprises the following learning areas: Kasanayang Pnagkomunikasyon sa Filipino; Kasananayang Pangkomunikasyon sa Ingles, Numerasi at Pangagham, Kabuhayan at likas na Yaman, at Pagpapalawak ng Pananaw. The test also gauges critical learning and problem solving skills.

Those are qualified for this should at least be eleven years old for the elementary level and fifteen years old for the secondary level.

The PEPT is open to learners who have dropped out of school for at least two years, designed for learners whose ages do not correspond to their grade year/level, aimed at getting OSYs back into the formal school system.

Lapus said students who quit school because of unexpected circumstances are advised to take PEPT to resume formal schooling.

Those who are over-aged, on the other hand, may take the PEPT to place them in the grade /year level of their age. A & E examinees who successfully pass the test are presented a diploma which is equal to that of formal learning situations.

Sec. Lapus said he is highly encouraging the OSY learners to avail themselves of the chance, to enable them to pursue various job opportunities.

    Angelique Salva, you didn’t put your link so i hope that you’d read this, I’m not good in english

    but, I’m trying,
    me too I want to take exams I know what the requirements are,

    2×2 Picture
    Form 138 ( Card Last attended to school )
    50 Pesos ( Fifty Pesos )
    Birth Certificate,


    this year march,

    I went to division office ( Near Sm North, Near Quezon City Science High School )

    Then I talk to the employee there that I want to take some exams to accelerate,
    but…. He told me that the test is last Nov, and the walk out ( I can’t remember ) is last Feb.
    So.. He said that this year ( 2008 ) I take some school, then while I’m studying he told me that I can take some exams while studying. So, this June I didn’t enroll, cause I want to change myself from before that I was careless that I need Acceleration exams to get through this challenge,

    Sorry for my grammars
