Philippine Educational Placement Test and Alternative Learning System Accreditation and Equivalency Program



Not everyone is given the chance to complete their studies without interruption. Sometimes financial, health, and personal problems force a student to stop schooling for a year or two; sometimes they force the student to stop from going to school altogether, probably in order to work; raise a family; or attend to a personal problem.

In the past, students would have had no choice but to catch up on the years they spent away from school once they have resumed their schooling, but thanks to programs like the Philippine Educational Placement Test (PEPT) and the Alternative Learning System Accreditation and Equivalency (ALS A & E) Program of the Department of Education, students who have stopped schooling now have better options.

PEPT

The Philippine Educational Placement Test or PEPT is a test that seeks to evaluate a student’s competency in five core subjects – English, Filipino, Science, Mathematics, and Social Studies – in relation to their age. By taking the PEPT, a student who fell behind their classmates because of dropping out from school can have the option to skip the grade or year levels they would normally be required to complete as long as they can prove that their competency is equivalent to students the same age as theirs.

For example, a 12 year-old student who stopped during the third grade can choose to skip the fourth and fifth grades and be automatically promoted to sixth grade as long as he’ll pass the test. The same also goes for High School students. A 16 year-old student who stopped on her first year in High School can choose to skip second and third years and be automatically promoted to fourth year as long as she can prove that she is as competent as any 4th year High School student.

ALS A & E 

Like PEPT, the Alternative Learning System Accreditation and Equivalency or ALS A & E seeks to evaluate the competency of a student who has stopped schooling; however, contrary to PEPT that is primarily concerned with promoting students to their rightful grade or year levels in relation to their age, ALS A & E is more concerned on helping people who have not had or have stopped formal schooling become eligible to pursue higher education at a college or university or be employed or promoted at a private company or government agency. Examples of these are out-of-school youths, industry-based workers like domestic helpers; factory workers; and drivers, people with disabilities, members of cultural minorities like Aetas and Mangyans, and former inmates and rebels.

    • Hi, Margarita!

      We’re sorry, but 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.

      :(

    • Hi, Gerica!

      We’re sorry, but we’re not really sure about that. It’s best if you’ll call up DepEd so they can answer that question for you.

      :(

  5. Hello sir,
    I would like to know if I’m qualified to take the PEPT exam. I use to live in the states then came back here but I could not enroll since I came in the middle of the school year. I am currently a 3rd year high school student and supposed to be 4th year high school. I was wondering if after I finish my third year; I could take the PEPT and skip fourth year s I could go to college.

  6. hi sir/madam pwede ba po bang magparegister kasi magkuha ng test at san po ba malapit pwedeng puntahan na lugar? i’m from r.papa st, tondo manila. thanks!

  7. Magandang hapon po, interesado po ako sa ALS gusto ko po sana mag-aral ulit, naka graduate po ako ng high school, nag college po ako hanggang 1st yr lang at higit 5 taon na po ang nakakalipas. Pupwede po ba ako sa ALS. Anu-ano po ba ng mga kakailanganin ko? Maraming Salamat po. God Bless!

    • Hi, Hushbaby!

      Thanks for visiting our site.

      The ALS program is only for those who haven’t obtained their elementary or high school diplomas yet. Since you’ve already graduated from high school, you no longer have to go through the program.

      If you meant you want to finish your college education without going through the traditional process, what you can take is the Expanded Tertiary Equivalency and Accreditation Program (ETEEAP).
      http://www.ched.gov.ph/chedwww/index.php/eng/Projects-and-Programs/Expanded-Tertiary-Education-Equivalency-and-Accreditation-Program-ETEEAP

      By enrolling in the program, you may be able to use your accumulated work experience in exchange for course credits; allowing you to finish what was supposed to be a four or five-year degree program in a much shorter time. The process depends on the schools offering the program, though, so it’s best if you’ll contact them directly so they can tell you more about the program, the procedure, and the requirements.

      Good luck! :)
