PEPT Test Schedule and PEPT Reviewer for High School

Homeschool

Nov 15

The PEPT test or the Philippine Educational Placement Test is an exam administered by the DepEd to put out  of school youth back to the education system. If you have stopped your education (either High School or Grade School), you can get back to school to your supposed level according to your age and not according to the last grade you were in to. This is great specially for the kids who are too shy to go back to school because of their age.

For most independent homeschooler parent however, the PEPT test is a way to measure our kids performance and so we have a record of their grades in case they want to go back to a regular school. You also need this exam done if you wish to or your kids wish to enroll in a college or university later.

Since last year, DepEd officially scheduled a yearly exam and for 2017, the scheduled exam date is today, November 15.  We went to the Dep Ed PEPT Office in Ortigas only last week and we missed the schedule. So come a little earlier next time if you want to make it by the regular November schedule.

Which is not really a problem since we’re not in a hurry. The only difference with scheduled exam and a walk in exam is the amount you have to pay, so need to be stressed if you’re late. Walk in PEPT examinees need to pay P200 and scheduled PEPT pays P50.

For walk in examinees, the line is first come first served. The line is very long and I only manage to get a walk in schedule for Anakin this January 2018.

Guideline for the PEPT exam:

  1. The PEPT exam is age dependent. Hence, a 17 year old can take the exams all the way to Grade 10, but Anakin, who is 14 years old can only take the exam up to Grade 8. (Which is a disappointment since I wanted to test if he can pass the Grade 10 exam and get to college earlier.
  2. You need to have your school card or form 137 & 138 in order to take the exam. For those coming from private schools, you also need to submit your schools Permit To Operate.
  3. If, like us, you are independent homeschooling or not enrolled in a DepEd accredited school, you will have to take the PEPT exam for all levels.

List of Requirements to Apply for PEPT:

  • Birth Certificate (bring original and 2 xeroxed copy)
  • 2 1x 1 recent ID
  • School records
    • Form 137 (Transcript of Records)
    • Form 138 (Report Card)
    • School Permit (if coming from a private school)

Where to go: 

For the walk in exams, you can go to the 2nd Floor, BEA Bldg., DepED Complex (ULTRA), Meralco Avenue, Pasig City.  If youre taking the regular exams though, go to your Division office to check where you should take your PEPT Test.

Unlike the ALS (Alternative Learning System), the PEPT exam is supposed to be self study so there is no reviewer available. However, I was able to get a pointer for review at the office which can pass as a PEPT reviewer and helps students figure out what’s going to be in the exam.  (Attached is the 1st year below -if still typing up the other years. 😛 )

The ALS for High School has some reviewers that might help you here.

PS: Shoutout to the PEPT officials t the PEPT office who helped me understand everything. I had so many questions but they answered me patiently even though they were very busy and there were tons and tons of papers ahead of them. If you’re ever dropping by, please bring them a box of donuts or drinks maybe!

hello mrs.april! im nadine po.gusto ko lang po malaman if yung exam po ba sa pept is tapos na?maghihintay po ulit ba next year sa pag release ng examinations?im just a student po and i really wanted to accelerate.pls help thank you.

    Hi Sophia. You can just walk in for a schedule and you can get an exam. Im not sure if you will be allowed to take an exam though if youre enrolled and using the exam to accelerate, since it is a placement test to put a non enrolled student back to the system though. Also, you can only get an exam dependent on your age.

        Hi Will, you did not mention what your grade is, if you stopped before Grade 10 or if you graduated HS and just concerned with Grade 11 and 12. Either way, to be honest if you schedule with PEPT right now, your exam schedule will probably be set on July – August date, 9because of the long lines of students taking the exam) then the result will take a month which will be too late for your enrollment for college.
        Im not sure if you can make an internal arrangement with your college school to let you enroll and you will submit the results when it comes.

    No worries Prince! You still have time. You can just walk in to schedule your exam. If you do it this week, you’ll probably get scheduled around late January or maybe February. If youre targeting to get back to school next year, you can get your results around April.

    I cant really say kung mahirap o madali since hindi naman ako nag exam. Just be prepared. In my experience, the more nervous I am, the more prepared I become, haha. Download the reviewer and check to see if youre familiar with them, then review the subjects. Check this site: https://lrmds.deped.gov.ph/grade/10 if youre looking for reviewers.

        Hello Diojeann! Congratulations for still wanting to continue on with your education! Kung may time ka, try mo mag aral ng at least an hour a day. Ang sagot sa kaba at nerbyos ay praktis. Ang gawin mo, mag pa schedule ka na ASAP (last schedule nung nagpunta ako is July na), then mag review ka daily prior to your exam. Who knows, you might even find it easy.
        Carry on!

Hello maam? Nag register din po ang daughter ko para sa exam last November 29, 2017 pero hinde po kami natuloy dahil kulang ng time para mag review. Ask ko lang po kasi sabi nila I’m not sure kung legit 2 years out of school youth lang ang puwede. Yung anak ko po kasi is 15 years old na and 4 years na nag stop. Puwede pa po kya siya makahabol? At kailan po kaya ang registration this 2018? Kailangan na po kasi talaga makabalik ng school ng anak ko kasi na dedeoressed na po siya sa bahay. Thanks po

    Yung anak ko po ang tinake na test is 1-8 so okay lang po yun kahit 4 years na nag stop. Wala naman pong date pede kayong pumunta sa Deped any day para maka pag pa schedule. Yung official exam po usually ay November pero any day pede mag walk in. May bayad nga lang po na 200 kung walk in. Puntahan nyo po agad kung aabot kayo this week para baka makahabol ang bata sa pasukan. Dalhin nyo lang po ang birth cert nya at saka card nya. if private, kuha kayo ng kopya ng permit to operate sa school nya dati. pero kung public kahit card lang po.

    Hi Nameless Guy!

    If you pass the Grade 9, you can go to Grade 10. Just try and do it. If you fail you can always take it again. (You can take the exam as many times as you want!) At least at the second time you know what the exam is, eh? 🙂

Hello April, i am 30 years old i stop studying since i was 15 and i never get a chance to go back to school, i got pregnant at an very early age. Will i still be qualified to take the exam and jump from high school to college since they have new curriculum k12 and so on… thanks!

Reply
    April Pagaling

    Hi Mommy Nix! Congratulations on deciding to go back to school!
    Yes you can take the exam up to Grade 10. However, since K12 na ngayon, you will have to enroll for Senior High (Grade 11-12). I was not able to ask if there is a PEPT exam na for Grade 11 and 12. Drop by your nearest Deped and ask mo. Preferably dalhin mo na ang lahat ng requirements so isang puntahan na lang. 🙂
    If makapunta ako this week, I will update this answer.

    Yes you can. Kung nag pa schedule ka na, (balik ka sa DEPED office) sabihin mo sa kanila, na you want to take the Grade 7-10 exam. 🙂 Although usually naman sinasabi nila yan pag ka schedule mo pa lang.

        Hi Lenar! PEPT is for out of school (or homeschooled) kids designed to put them back in school. It is not for acceleration. Ask your teacher about acceleration instead.

    Yes! Bring your school records and schedule it asap because you might have to wait a month before taking the exam. Also, the release of the results takes about a month so make sure to take it early so you can get back to school this June if you want.

    You dont need to bring them sis. Just the required papers. I only brought the kids’ birth cert. My son is also 14 and he took Grade 1 – 8. Good luck! (Ps, if youre planning to put them back for next year, better hurry up for scheduling. They take quite a bit of time with the result. Up to now, wala pa rin yung result nya.

I wanna take a PEPT exam po asap so that I can hopefully go back to school next school eyar and hopefully as a senior high student na po or maybe grade 10. Is it possible by this month to schedule an exam? I really do have the highest hope for that. Thank you so much for your answer and the infos 🙂

    Hi Mico! In order to take the exam as quickly as possible you have to schedule with DEPED quickly. Its a first come and first serve basis and there is a really long line. Dont wait and just go so you can possibly go to school this school year. It takes about a month before they release the results.

    Hi Marjorey! Im so happy for you. What grades are you taking? The exam is graduated, meaning, it gets harder per level. Its not as hard as anyone might assume because the questions are designed to test your stock knowledge. Just review for your year/s using the links I shared and also download the PDF to see what you need to review. 1 or 2 hours a day till April would be great I think.

    Hello! Araw araw naman me exam sa DEPED Ortigas. Ang problem is kailangan mong mag submit muna ng papers and kumuha ng date ng exam mo. Medyo matagal ang schedule, usually mga 2-3 months bago ka makakuha ng test. Puntahan mo na agad so you can get your exam schedule the earliest possible time.
