CTE graduates surpasses national LET passing rate


By upao - Posted on 04 June 2019

The College of Teacher Education listed a passing rate of 44.68% (elementary level) and 50.66% (secondary level) in the Licensure Examination for Teachers conducted on March 2019. The national passing rate is 27.28%.

BSU-Bokod had a passing rate of 21.43% and BSU-Buguias listed 29.41% in the elementary level. In the secondary level, BSU-Bokod had a passing rate of 25% while BSU-Buguias achieved a passing rate of 19.05%.

Although CTE has maintained its consistency in surpassing the LET national passing rates, CTE Dean, Dr. Imelda Parcasio is still hopeful that BSU passing rates will continue to improve. She shared that preparation for LET and enhancement activities are incorporated into the CTE curriculum but there are other factors that affects the overall BSU passing rate such as the number of examinees, the examinees who graduated from other colleges and the re-takers. Thus, the college welcomes all BSU graduates who plans to take the LET to avail of the mock reviews and mock exams of the CTE.

The LET passing rates speak so much of the college’s performance and integrity. This is also one of the measures usually set by regulatory bodies like the Commission on Higher Education (CHED) who declared CTE as a Center of Excellence (COE) in Teacher Education in 2016.

“Malaki ang impact ng result ng board exams kasi bago ka man magtuloy sa evaluation nila ng COE titignan muna nila kung na-surpass mo yung national passing rate in the last five years, kung okay ka then itutuloy ang interview and application ng COE, pag sa accreditation, ganoon din, malaki ang points pag na surpass moi yong passing rates (Board exam results have a huge impact because before being evaluated for COE, the college should have surpassed the national passing rate in the last five years, the same for accreditation, high points are given for surpassing national passing rates),” said Dr. Parcasio.

CTE also has its own list of examinees who landed in the top ten over the years. Dr. Parcasio said having top ten examinees is a bonus but it is more important to have more students pass the LET. Being a licensed teacher opens more opportunities for the individual.

“We still adhere and stick to our banner statement, we care, touch and empower lives,” concluded Dr. Parcasio.//JSTabangcura
