Frequently Asked Questions

What is PEPT? 

PEPT stands for Philippine Educational Placement Test. By taking and passing this test, over-aged students can have the option of skipping grade or year levels and jumping right into the grade or year level that corresponds to their age.

How can I take the PEPT?

Just complete the requirements mentioned above then call the nearest DepEd office to ask for the registration and testing centers.

Is there an age limit for taking the PEPT test?

PEPT applicants are required to be at least a year over-aged for their grade or year level. Other than that, anyone can take the test.

How much would it cost me to take the test?

A non-refundable fee of P50.00 shall be charged against regular examinees and P100.00 for special examinees.

What if I didn’t make it to the deadline for registration this year, can I still take the PEPT next year?

Yes, you can.

What would happen if I passed the PEPT?

After you’ve passed the PEPT, you have the option of skipping grade or year levels you would normally be required to go through and jump right into the grade or year level that corresponds to your age. This means a 12-year old grade three student can skip grades four and five and jump right to grade six while a 16-year old first year high school student can skip second and third year and jump right into fourth year.
