2016 Philippine Educational Placement Test (PEPT) Overview

PEPT Frequently Asked Questions

1. What is PEPT?

The Philippine Educational Placement Test (PEPT), one of DepED-NETRC’s testing programs, is under the Accreditation and Equivalency Program (Executive Order 733).

  • It is an equivalency test wherein learning experiences gained out of school are given equivalency and placement in the formal school system by grade level that is appropriate for the examinee’s age and ability.
  • This move will encourage him/her to continue and finish basic education and eventually to pursue college education if he/she so desires.

2. Why is PEPT conducted?

  • To retrieve out-of-school youth and place them in the formal school system if they so desire; and
  • To validate and accredit knowledge and skills in academic areas gained through informal and non-formal means for re-entry into formal school, job promotion, entry to job training, for employment and self-fulfillment.
  • The PEPT is not conducted for purposes of grade level acceleration.

3. Who may take the test?

The target clientele of PEPT or those who may be qualified to take the test are Filipino citizens who are/have:

  • dropouts (out-of-school) from the elementary and the secondary schools for at least one (1) year
  • overage in-school children/youth by at least one year of their actual grade level
  • never attended a formal school but can read and write
  • presently employed and in need of upgrading their academic level (elem./sec.) for re-entry into formal school, job entry, job promotion and self-fulfillment

4. What are the requirements to be submitted prior to taking the test?

  • BIRTH CERTIFICATE – issued by the NSO or Local Civil Registrar duly authenticated (original and 2 photocopies)
  • ID PICTURES – 2 pieces, identical and recently taken (size 1”x1”)
  • SCHOOL RECORDS – original and 2 photocopies

Elementary Level: Form 137 or Form 138
Secondary Level: Form 137

Form 137: Transcript of Records with school seal and signature of principal/registrar
Form 138: Report Card with school seal and signature of principal/registrar

5. How are test applicants screened?

Test applicants are screened based on their age and last level completed (LLC).


Applicants must be at least one year overage for their supposed grade level in the formal school system as displayed in the table:

Grade Level Passed / CompletedNormal Age (at the end of the SY)Age on the Date of ExaminationGrade Level to be Tested at starting level
None (No Schooling)-At least 6 years oldKinder
Kinder6 years oldAt least 7 years oldGrade 1
Grade 17 years oldAt least 8 years oldGrade 2
Grade 28 years oldAt least 9 years oldGrade 3
Grade 39 years oldAt least 10 years oldGrade 4
Grade 410 years oldAt least 11 years oldGrade 5
Grade 511 years oldAt least 12 years oldGrade 6
Grade 612 years oldAt least 13 years oldGrade 7
Grade 713 years oldAt least 14 years oldGrade 8
Grade 814 years oldAt least 15 years oldGrade 9
Grade 915 years oldAt least 16 years oldGrade 10

Last Level Completed (LLC)

The LLC is the grade level finished by a test registrant in school.

In the secondary level, all subjects must have a passing mark including back subjects (if there were) in previous levels as noted in Form 137.

There should be no pending subject grade in the level in order for it to be considered as the LLC of the registrant.

6. Is the test administered based on the examinee’s age and LLC?

  • Yes
  • Each examinee is assigned to answer a particular set of test items in the Test Booklet according to his/her age and LLC.
  • Example #1: a 12-year-old PEPT registrant who finished Grade 2 will be given test items for Grades 3 to 6 on exam day.
  • Example #2: a 16-year-old registrant who completed Grade 9 level will be given test items for Grade 10 on exam day.
  • Thus, examinees will have different test time allotments depending on their age and LLC.

7. What is the coverage of the PEPT?

Based on the K to 12 Curriculum

Elementary Level:

  • Science
  • Mathematics
  • Araling Panlipunan
  • Filipino
  • English

Secondary Level:

  • ENGLISH – Reading Comprehension, Vocabulary Development, Writing Composition, Literature (Philippine, Asian and World), Grammar Awareness
  • SCIENCE – General Science, Biology, Chemistry, Physics
  • MATHEMATICS – Numbers and Number Sense, Measurement, Geometry, Patterns and Algebra, Statistics and Probability
  • FILIPINO – Gramatika, Panitikan (Ibong Adarna, Florante at Laura, Noli Me Tangere, El Filibusterismo)
  • ARALING PANLIPUNAN – Araling Asyano, Kasaysayan ng Daigdig, Ekonomiks

8. When could PEPT be availed?

Nationwide Testing

  • Administered annually every November in designated Testing Centers in DepED provincial and city divisions
  • Luzon – every third Sunday of November
  • Visayas and Mindanao – every fourth Sunday of the same month

Walk-in Examination

  • Administered at NETRC from January to December.

Special Examination

  • It is conducted for specific purposes as per request of concerned parties. It shall be held four times a week and year-round on a first-come-first-served basis.

The approval and venue of the special exam depends on the necessity of the said request.

9. How does one register for the PEPT?

Nationwide Testing

  • Test applicants should register at the nearest Division Office from August 1 to September 30.
  • A report on the total number of registered applicants in every testing center in the division shall be submitted to the NETRC by the DTC on or before October 1 for test materials allocation.

Walk-in Examination

  • Prospective test takers should personally register at the:
  • Test Administration Division, NETRC
    2nd Floor, Mabini Bldg., DepED Complex, Meralco Avenue, Pasig City
    Contact Numbers: 631.2571 / 631.2591 / 631.6921

Special Examination

  • Interested parties should coordinate with the Office of the NETRC Director (same address and contact numbers; email: depednetrc@yahoo.com)

10. What is a testing center? What are the requirements in putting up one?

A testing center is a public school designated by the SDS which is most accessible to the majority of the registrants;

A sub-center to an existing testing center may be opened upon request provided that:

  • the number of registrants is at least fifty (50);
  • the location of the proposed sub-center is far from the existing testing center; and
  • the request is submitted to NETRC on or first week of September

11. How are test results processed?


Each scannable Answer Sheet used by an examinee is scanned by a machine.

As the examinee is assigned a particular set of test items to answer based on his/her age and LLC, the answers to these items are processed electronically.


In the event that the computer encounters a failing mark in one of the five subjects in the grade level next to the examinee’s LLC, data processing stops as it is programmed.

Hence, the answers to test items in the next higher level(s) are no longer scored because lower levels must be passed prior to the higher ones.

12. How are test results analyzed and interpreted?


  • Examinees must obtain a rating of at least 75% in all subject areas in one grade level in order to pass it. If they obtain a passing rate in all subjects, they are considered as a qualifier in the said level.
  • Examinees may pass as many levels with their age as ceiling, meaning they may qualify only up to the school level appropriate for their age.
  • Averaging of subject area scores is not the rating system of PEPT.


The PEPT is a norm-based test; an examinee’s test performance is compared to the norm.

This means that a PEPT passer’s ability in a certain grade level equally conforms to that of an average school-aged child/youth in the same level.

For instance, a PEPT Grade 7 qualifier is expected to equate in performance with that of an average Grade 7 student.

13. What if the examinee failed one subject, can the ratings in 5 subjects be averaged?

  • No
  • Ratings in 5 subject areas are not averaged
  • An examinee must pass all the subjects in order to pass the specific grade level

14. How do examinees get their test results?

A PEPT Certificate of Rating (COR) is issued to each individual examinee.


The release of test results is done in specific schedules:

  • Nationwide Testing – from February to March; CORs are sent to Division Offices
  • Walk-in Examination – two weeks from the date of exam; CORs are picked up at NETRC
  • Special Examination – CORs will either be sent to or picked up by the requesting party two weeks from the date of exam

15. What if an examinee lost his/her COR? Will NETRC issue another copy?


The re-issuance of PEPT Certificate of Ratings (COR) costs fifty pesos (Php50.00).
Same rate applies in the re-issuance of NCAE CORs.

For those who are in Metro Manila

  • Proceed to DepED-NETRC, Verification Room, 2F Mabini Bldg, DepED Complex, Meralco Avenue, Pasig City (Mon-Fri, 8 AM-5 PM) and fill out the Request Form (next slide).

For those who are outside Metro Manila

  • Send NETRC a letter of request (fax or email)* with the filled out Request Form to help locate the test results in its database.
  • Include a contact information in order for us to advise you on the next procedure (payment).

*NETRC Fax Number (02-6316921) and Email (depednetrc@yahoo.com)

16. When can examinees use the PEPT results?

PEPT- Regular/Special:
The test results shall be utilized or will be in effect in the subsequent school year and not during the school year when the test was taken.

PEPT – June 12: The results shall take effect within the school year.

DepEd Order No. 49, s. 2013, “Effectivity of the Grade/Year Level Placement of PEPT Qualifiers”

17. Can the PEPT be administered to examinees with special needs?


Individuals with Visual Impairment (VI)

  • The PEPT has a Braille test form in the elementary and secondary levels
  • For Braille readers, they have to use their own slate and stylus in recording their answers
  • NETRC will provide the Answer Sheets/papers
  • 1 Examiner : 3-5 Examinees
  • Separate testing room
  • Examiner will use a Special Handbook in administering the test
  • Time allotment is different from a regular examinee

Individuals with Visual Impairment (VI)

  • For non-Braille readers, an alternate test form is given
  • 1 Examiner : 1 Examinee
  • Separate testing room
  • Test items are read and answers are recorded by the examiner
  • Special test booklet with modified test items
  • Regular scannable answer sheet

My children had been enrolled in a private school in manila from grade 1 to 4 which is later we found out that it was unlicensed by deped, then we decided to transfer them to another newly reopened private elementary school and said they will accept and enrolled our children without lrn, the school will allow them to take the pept exam, but unfortunately they didn’t passed it. But the school which is they are enrolled issued each of them lrn because they are the registered owner of the said school which is they also worked in deped ncr division office. Today my children are currently enrolled in a provincialpublic school in our place which we used the lrn in their ids in manila… now we are approach by their teachers that they are not officially enrolled because they have no valid lrns. What shall we do regarding this matter? Please we need advise immediately. Thank you.

  48. My daughter stopped formal schooling after Grade 4. She is currently registered in ALS in a public school near our place. She will be 13 yrs. old this coming September and she wishes to go back to formal school next school year as Grade 8. Will she be eligible to take the Grade 7 level PEPT? So that if by God’s grace she passed, she can be in Grade 8 next school year. Thank you and God bless!

  49. My Son is 16 years old for some reason during his grade 7,8,9 one of the private school he attended on that particular level failed to get there license to operate on that mentioned level, so he spent 3 years on that school without licence which we found out lately…then I transfer him in other private school (with License) which he was admitted for grade 10 and presently grade 11. ( Note: The first school he attended got there license to operate recently). He was advised to take the PEPT Examination for 3 level which he failed last February and scheduled again this coming June. Can you advise me what is the best move we can do… And what is gonna be the status of his grade 10 and grade 11 if he did not pass the PEPT Exam? Is he can continue his study up to end (Grade 12) until he pass the pept exam?… It is very unfair for him if he will discontinue his study , I as a parents disagree on others DEPED official advise to start him back to grade 7 again which is 5 years below level from his grade now …Please advise…Thanks

  50. Hi,

    I am already 17 years old and I haven’t finished elementary yet. I took the PEPT test in hopes that I could have my grade level accelerated to, at the very least, high school freshman. But..

    Why is it so hard to get information about the PEPT Results? I took the test just this May 2016 but they’re telling me that the results will be in August? So when can I really go to school? By next year?

    I don’t understand..

    Forever stuck an illiterate

  53. I’m an incoming Grade 11 student this school year 2016-2017 but I will not be attending the whole academic year in the Philippines because I’m going to have an exchange year in USA for 10 months, could I take the PEPT Examination so I could proceed to Grade 12 when I came back in school year 2017-2018 ?

  54. I will be an incoming Grade 11 student this June 2016 but unfortunately, I cannot go to school this school year due to some personal reasons. Can I take the PEPT Examination so I will be Grade 12 on June 2017?
