Tips on Passing the Licensure Examination for Teachers (LET)

52

Are you one of the test takers for the coming Licensure Examination for Teachers (LET)?

You must be worrying about what lies ahead now. You must be finding yourself feeling stressed and pressured these days. Well, this I say to you: You should keep calm and do the following:

1. MAKE A LIST OF YOUR WEAKEST SUBJECTS WHEN YOU WERE IN COLLEGE.

It’s important to give focus on the subjects that you had difficulties with during your college days. Remember, the exam comprises of different areas and it’s not good to set aside the subjects you are weak at.

2. CREATE A TIME TABLE.

You should of course, set your goal. If you want to hit your target, you should finish doing everything at a given time. Put in your mind that you have a very limited time to review the subjects you studied for four years. So, list down each subject that you have to review and identify how long it will take you to study them.

3. KNOW THE FOCUS OF THE EXAM.

The Professional Regulation Commission releases the coverage of the test months before the date of examination. Make sure you have the copy of it so you would know what subject areas you are going to study and how long you are going to spend reviewing them.

4. SPEND AT LEAST 1 TO 4 HOURS READING LECTURES.

Research shows that reading for at least an hour or two can activate brain cells. It also shows that doing so regularly could enhance retention. So if you want to remember the all that you studied about on the day of examination, make sure that you get yourself used to reading for an hour or more.

5. DON’T MEMORIZE TOO MUCH.

Yes, there are some questions (especially in the subjects, History and Math) that really require you to memorize. But lemme tell ya that almost 75% percent of the questions are situational so instead of memorizing, try understanding deeply the lectures you are reading. Retention is higher when you digest and relate what you read to other concepts or ideas.

6. GET ENOUGH SLEEP, RELAX AND DON’T FORGET TO TAKE A REST.

Don’t stress yourself for the overnight reviews and all. If you fail to take a rest because of studying too much, you’ll just make things worse. It is proven that a sound mind and a relaxed body can help people think and recall better.

7. DON’T TAKE GENERAL EDUCATION LIGHTLY.

The exam is divided into three areas. General Education, Professional Education and your Major.
40% of your general average is from your major. Another 40% from Professional Education and the remaining 20% from General Education. Yes, Gen. Ed. Is only 20% of your average that’s why test takers often focus on Prof. Ed and Major a lot not knowing that General Education is the hardest part of the test. Most questions in this area are about the topics you have studied during elementary days and are very hard to recall. Do not be assured that you’ll be able to answer the questions easily thinking that this area’s just about the basics. Lots of test takers pass the Major and Prof. Ed but fail in General Education that they fail the exam as well.

8. BUY A REVIEWER OUTSIDE THE PRC OFFICE.

This is what I strongly recommend guys! I bought a reviewer for General and Professional Education in front of the PRC office before I took the test. The questionnaire and the answer key were provided. I read it but I found out that the answer key was wrong so I answered each question through the help of the internet. It was really helpful since the questions in the reviewer were the exact questions given when I took the board exam.

Take note: I got 92% average in General Education.

9. PREPARE EVERYTHING THAT YOU’LL NEED WEEKS BEFORE THE EXAMINATION.

It’s always better to prepare early so I suggest that you prepare the pencils, erasers, calculators, STAMPED/METERED ENVELOPE, PRC RECEIPT, Notice of Admission (NOA), ruler and HANKY (use it when wiping the eraser dust on your paper) 2 or 3 weeks before the exam. You can’t afford to feel stressed or worried about the unavailability of these things days before the exam.

10. PRAY.

Of course, it’s always him who will decide your fate so keep on being “MAKULIT” and keep asking him to guide you not just on the date of the exam but throughout your life. You will need him even after passing the LET since you will have the biggest responsibility in the world. You’ll be a teacher. YOU WILL SHAPE THE FUTURE and to do it successfully, you’ll need his help— THE ONE WHO SHAPED THE WHOLE WORLD PERFECTLY.

Good Luck teachers!

  3. Danree De Gula says

    I wanted to help everyone and don’t be discouraged if you have failed once or twice. Just believe that you CAN, LET isn’t only about who has the highest level of intelligence but rather a matter of persistence and never resort to the idea of “surrendering”,. I am currently working in a public institution……I am hoping for the means of sending you some tips or even materials that I have used extensively during my review at the Philippine Normal University that would be relevant in your review schedule.

    1. Danree De Gula says

      And of course, pray a lot only God knows what is best for you. I believe if it is your calling then He would do something out of your persistence

  10. Mary Jane says

    hello po sa lahat. Im an ofw for 7 years. Im BEED graduate but not yet a LET passer.
    I worked abroad after my graduation kaya di ako nakapagreview and take the exam. Gusto ko po sana humingi ng advice sa inyo kung ano po ang magandang gawin, kasi gusto ko po sana mag take ng exam here in Abudhabi kasi meron silang program dito na pwede na po kumuha ng Board exam. Ang concern ko po sana kung saan ako pwedeng magreview online since matagal n po akong nkagraduate at almost limot ko na lahat ng natutunan ko nung nag aaral pa ko. Hindi rin kasi ako makauwi sa pilipinas to get a review kasi hindi ko pwedeng iwanan ang work ko lalo n po madami ang umaasa sa akin sa pilipinas. Sana po may makabasa nito at mabigyan nyo po ng pansin. GODbless po sa ating lahat.

  18. beetechie says

    Another tip: READ! As in read a lot, even it is not LET related or education related stuff. You will be surprise during the exam of how much your stored knowledge get you through. I’m not an Education graduate, and I didn’t enrolled in Review Center. I aced my LET exam with pretty good rating when I took it last Jan. 2014. I had same experience when I took Civil Service exam.

    Make reading a habit.

    1. Hannah says

      Hi! What do you mean you’re not an Educ grad but you aced the exam? Is it possible to take the exam? Im a BSBA grad,
