Hoping to be a part of DepEd? Then you will have to undergo screenings, interviews and of course a test! THE ENGLISH PROFICIENCY TEST (EPT).
Each year, the Department of Education releases a memorandum on the hiring guidelines and procedures for all public school teachers in the elementary and high school divisions. Such memorandum states that all teacher applicants must take the English Proficiency Test— commonly known as EPT.
EPT is administered to applicants by the Bureau of Education Assessment (BEA).
The respective Division Testing Coordinators shall coordinate with BEA regarding the conduct and schedule of the exam in their division, which should ideally be within December to January.
The total percentage score obtained by an applicant shall be multiplied by the weight points, as follows:
Percentage Score = 82% or 0.82 Weighted Points = 10 for Academic Track and Core Subject applicants = 5 for TVL, Arts and Design, and Sports track applicants Rating = 0.82 x 10 = 8.2 points for Academic Track and Core subject applicants = 0.82 x 5 = 4.1 points for TVL, Arts and Design, and Sports track applicants.
HOW DO I PASS THE ENGLISH PROFICIENCY TEST (EPT)?
