    hi . just wanna ask if where & when can I enroll in ALS next year 2013 ? thankyou .

    • courses.com.ph

      Hi, Czarina!

      Thanks for visiting our site.

      The enrollment for ALS A & E classes are supposed to be held everyday, so anytime would probably be fine. As for the location, just visit the nearest public elementary school, public high school, or barangay hall near your place and they’ll tell you where to enroll.

  2. James

    Good day, I just want to ask if I can take the ALS A&E exam even without attending their classes? I have read in recent articles that the schedule for the exam was October 21, 2012. I have wasted many years not attending school and I want to take this year’s exam. Am I a bit late for registration? Thank you and I’ll be waiting for your reply.

      Hi, James!

      Thanks for visiting our site.

      Attending the ALS A & E classes is optional, so it’s up to you whether you’d attend them first or take the exam right away. ALS coordinators strongly encourage students to go through them first so they can catch up on the things they might have missed out on, though.

      Registration ended last July, so that’s probably the case. We’re not sure if BALS gives special consideration to people interested in taking the exam, though, so it’s best if you’ll contact them directly so they can give you an accurate response.

      • James

        Thanks for the info. I am hoping that they will give that special consideration in my case. One more thing, do they give any reviewers or any book that we can use before the exam? Sorry if I am having a lot of questions, I just don’t know who am I going to ask. Thank you.

        Hi, James!

        Thanks for coming back.

        Good luck! :)

        We’re not sure about regular books, but ALS A & E classes use modules specifically designed for the program as reference materials. You can find some of those modules on the page below:

        Should you have any further questions, you can refer to the FAQs on the page below:

    Registration for the ALS A & E Test for 2012 is already closed.

    • courses.com.ph

      Hi, Sheina!

      ALS A&E passers can take any two, three, four, or five-year courses in college provided that they meed the admission requirements of the college or university they are enrolling at.

  12. Elna

    Hello po! itatanong ko lang po kung kailan po yung start po ng ALS po dito sa angeles city pampanga?

    • courses.com.ph

      Hi, Elna!

      We’re sorry, but we don’t have any available information about the schedule of ALS classes. For that, it’s best if you’ll contact the nearest barangay hall or public elementary or high school where they usually conduct ALS classes so they can give you an accurate reply.

    that my mother past on (als)alternative learning system,the name is linita d. estil,could you please tell me if she past or not on accredit and equivelency test,thank you.

    • courses.com.ph

      Hi, Jay!

      If you were referring to the results of the ALS A & E 2013, we believe it has not been released yet. We suggest you check the official website of DepEd every now and then for updates, or you could probably get in touch with them through their Facebook page for inquiries.

  14. hazel jane servano

    hello poh san poh bah ako dapat mag enroll ng als tga san roque magalang pampanga poh ako at kelan poh ung starting enrollment ng als….. sna poh mtulungan nyo ako…….

  15. marie

    gud day I just want to ask because I have a friend whos children did not attend any formal education. ages 11 and 7.they live abroad but now they want to bring their children back here in the country to study.. what should they do?. thanks.

    • courses.com.ph

      Hi, Marie!

      As much as we’d like to help, we’re unfortunately not sure how to answer that question. Taking the ALS A & E could be an option, but we’re not sure how that works in the case of individuals who studied abroad.

      If the kids have GEDs, you could probably look for Philippine schools that accepts them, although we personally haven’t encountered one yet. You could also probably try to contact Department of Education’s Bureau of Alternative Learning System to ask how taking the ALS A & E Test goes for students who studied overseas or the Commission on Higher Education to confirm if GEDs issued overseas are recognized in the country.

    hal.po di nkapasa ng exam last october 2013 papasukan po b nya ulit itong 2014 pra mkpg take ulit another chance ng exam?mraming slamat

    • courses.com.ph

      Hi, May!

      According to the ALS official we spoke with before, the ALS classes primarily acts as refresher courses, so enrolling in them is not mandatory. They do encourage those who are interested in taking the test to enroll so they can have a good review before taking the exam, though.

    • courses.com.ph

      Hi, Kenneth!

      As much as we’d like to help with your concern, we’re not affiliated with DepEd, so we’re afraid we can’t answer that question for you. We suggest you call the nearest DepEd division office to inform them of your situation. Hopefully, they might be able to arrange something for you.

  21. Van Excel Santiago

    Good eve po kung mag sstart po ang pasukan ng june sa als anong buwan po matatapos nagbabakasakali po kasi akong makapasok pa ng second sem sa college if ever makapasa ako at makakuha ng diploma. Hoping for your responce Many thanks :)

    • courses.com.ph

      Hi, Van!

      The ALS A & E classes takes a minimum of 800 hours to complete; however, we’re not sure how they are divided into months and days, and that duration may also change depending on the progress of the students. For a more accurate and detailed response, we suggest you visit the nearest barangay hall or public elementary or high school (they usually offer ALS classes) so they can provide you with more information.

      As for the common requirements, you can find those on the post above.

      Hi, Lysame!

      Try to check with the nearest public elementary/ high school or drop by at the nearest barangay hall. That’s where ALS classes are usually conducted.

ALS coordinators strongly encourage students to go through them first so they can catch up on the things they might have missed out on, though.

    Hello po, tanun kulang po anung uneversity po ang pwedi kung pasukan this coming second sem. Als graduate po ako,,, pasado na po ako,,,, :) salamat po in advance sa sagot,,,,, :)

    • courses.com.ph

      Hi, Elleone!

      The ALS A & E certificate is equivalent to a traditional high school diploma, so you should be able to enroll at any college or university in the Philippines. That’s just as far as we know, so you might also want to check with CHED to be sure.

      As far as we know, yes, you are. Once you’ve gotten your ALS certificate that certifies that you have the same competencies as those of a traditional high school graduate, you can apply for any two, three, four, or five-year degree programs at any school, college, or university in the Philippines.

      Hi, Zhei!

      From what we understood, much of the study materials can be accessed online; however, students are still occasionally (or can also be usually, depending on individual circumstances) required to meet up with their teachers in person.

      That’s just from what we understood, though, so we suggest you get in touch with the nearest school / barangay hall / educational institution that offer ALS in your area so they can give you a more accurate response.
