Feeling nervous about the LET on April 3, 2011? Cramming for last minute reinforcements of the test items you missed during the pre-LET or mock drills that you took? Still haven’t received your mail regarding your assigned testing center?
At last, here’s a bit of relief for those who still do not know their testing sites. The Professional Regulatory Commission has posted the room assignments for LET in the different testing centers in the country. You may now check: http://www.prc.gov.ph/roomassignments.asp Just be a lot more patient since the site may be quite busy and hence, loads slowly. The list is divided into testing centers per region, level of test to be taken (elementary or secondary), and specialization or majorship.
Once you’ve seen your testing site, make sure to check the accuracy of your name’s spelling. If you have time, go to your assigned testing center soonest or at least a day before the LET to minimize added anxiety in locating your test site. Most schools will not allow you to get into the specific rooms assigned for LET. At least, by visiting your test site, you’ll know what time you need to get up on LET day to get to the site by 6:30 a.m.
Use your charms to know more about your testing venue and perhaps, even get a peek at the way it looks. Is it an airconditioned room? Is it ventilated by a single electric fan? Is it close to the comfort rooms? These questions will help you prepare what to wear when you take the LET. You’ll definitely not be wearing a synthetic blouse when you are assigned in a sun-filled room which will become warmer as test takers give out their energies to solve a Math problem or recall Freud’s psycho-sexual stages of development. You’ll be safe from the cold when your bring a jacket or scarf to keep you warm if you are assigned to an airconditioned room with a pre-set thermostat too cool for comfort.
You cannot choose your testing site, so wherever you are assigned, condition yourself that it is the right room for you on April 3. Visualize a pleasant atmosphere, friendly test mates, and supportive proctors. There are a lot of other ingredients aside from the test room which would empower you to pass the LET. There’s really no substitute for early preparation, the right review center, pertinent materials, supportive coaches, and study buddies and most of all, the right attitude.
