Teachers-to-be: Prepare Early and Pass the April 2011 Licensure Examination for Teachers (LET)

The best preparation for tomorrow is doing your best today.

(H. Jackson Brown Jr.)

Success comes to those who prepare early and are able to commit themselves to their life goals.  Starting early gives you time to think ahead about your strategies for success.  What opportunities do you currently face? How do you plan to outbeat others?  What resources do you have at hand? What resources will you be needing?  What are your strengths ?  your weaknesses and limits?

Teachers, aspiring teachers, education graduates and even LET retakers, it’s time to prepare for the April or even the September 2011 licensure NOW. Yesterday, the Professional Regulatory Commission announced that applications for the 2011 LET can already be filed starting today, October 1, 2011.

Here’s PRC’s pronouncement signed by PRC Chairman Nicolas Lapena Jr., quoted verbatim:

The PROFESSIONAL REGULATION COMMISSION announces that the 2011 Licensure Examination for Teachers (LET) will be held simultaneously in Manila, and other designated regions and cities nationwide on April 3, 2011 and September 25, 2011 .

All qualified applicants may file their applications on the following schedules:

Date of Examination : April 3, 2011
Filing Period : October 1, 2010 – January 28, 2011

Filing/Test Centers:


Date of Examination : September 25, 2011
Filing Period : April 4, 2011 – June 30, 2011

Filing/Test Centers:


After reading this post, check out if you already have these requirements for the LET.  If you don’t have them yet, access them soonest.  By experience, the first documentary requirement has proven to be the bottle neck for reasons like:  one’s file is missing, name is erroneous, student clearance is pending; records from another school has not been received (for those who studied in different colleges); photo has not been provided by applicant (for scanning); and the need for another Transcript since the notation:  For Board Examination Purposes Only” has been omitted.

  1. Original and photo/xerox copies of Transcript of Records with Special Order and Date of Graduation with SCANNED PICTURES AND WITH REMARKS “FOR BOARD EXAMINATION PURPOSES ONLY”View Res.2004-200..(Graduates of government schools and institutions/programs accredited by recognized accrediting agencies under the FAAP are exempted from SO [B]) . Graduates of New Schools/Degree/Programs must submit School Recognition and/or Permit to Operate.
  2. Original and photo/xerox copy of NSO-issued of Birth Certificate (in NSO security paper; if NSO copy not very clear, bring copy from local civil registrar)
  3. Four (4) passport size colored pictures with complete name tag in white background
  4. Current Community Tax Certificate (Cedula)
  5. Original and photo/xerox copies of NSO-issued Marriage Contract in NSO security paper (for married female only;if NSO copy not very clear, bring copy from local civil registrar)
  6. Other specific requirements as required by the Commission and/or the Professional Regulatory Board.

When you’re done checking the above requirements, take time to really look at yourself and your motives for taking the LET.  Preparing to pass the LET is not easy, particularly with the past three LET’s drastic changes in test items and overall test specifications —  to professionalize teaching.

Remember that passing and even topping the LET may be doable with an average of three months’ study diligence and when you  register early, you free up more time for review.  But, contemplate on the more important thought that  success as a good teacher is a lifetime commitment and pursuit.

Are you ready to take your first step in becoming a good professional teacher?

    Gudam!ask ko po kung pwede ko makatake ng LET kahit I earned only 9 units sa M.A.T. Im a BS Comp Science Grad. Thanks a lot

    • MindGym 2011/08/10 at 4:51 pm #

      @Sybil: at least 18 units of education is needed.

  15. elina 2011/08/03 at 2:52 pm #

    how and when do we know that the review is really a need to be emphasized?what is the advantage of formal review and self review?

    • MindGym 2011/08/10 at 4:49 pm #

      @elina: Review centers help you by drawing your attention to salient topics which came out in questions of past LET. Our experience proved that peer review and cooperative review among MindGym reviewees created TOPnotchers and passers (who have failed in past LET when they self-reviewed).

  16. rebecca m. hadjerel 2011/08/21 at 3:59 pm #

  23. Raquel 2011/09/12 at 5:41 pm #

    I’m scheduled to take the LET this month but I know I am not ready and there’s a slim chance of passing bec I did not enroll in a review school nor was successful to have a self-review due to heavy workload; and 18 teaching units lang po na-take ko. Kung hindi po ako mag-take (sa April nalang), lalabas po ba na FAILED ako sa records PRC? Thanks and more power.

    • MindGym 2011/09/19 at 12:09 pm #

      @Raquel: If you don’t take, then it’s not “Failed” but just an absent or no show, as far as we know.
