an occupation that enables one to develop and use potentials and aptitude, skills and abilities
Entrust you works to the LORD and your plans will SUCCEED…

To minimize indiscriminate wastage of manpower and resources by working for a match between manpower skill outputs and job market demands

Why was NCAE developed?


The total time for the test will be 7 hours and 30 mins. You will be given a 10-minute break in the morning, a 1-hour lunch break and a 10-minute break in the afternoon.
Work fast enough so you will finish the test within a given time. If you finish the test ahead of time, review your answers.
The examiner will announce when the given time to finish the test is up. When he/she say STOP, put your pencils down.
Important Reminders


Work quietly and mind only your own work. Do not use books, dictionaries, rulers, calculators, cell phones, and other electronic devices inside the testing room.

Refrain from cheating. If you are caught cheating and have been warned twice, but persist on cheating, you will not be allowed to take the test any further.

You may choose any subtest that you prefer to answer first. You don’t necessarily have to follow the sequence of subtest in the board work.
You are expected to answer all items and follow the time allocation per subtest.

Important Reminders

The NCAE intends to provide information that will help high school students make wise career decisions based on the results of the domains of the test.
It also provides an interest inventory that will show the inclinations of the students in a particular occupational field.
The test results will validate the previously thought career choice by showing the student’s strengths and weaknesses in the aforementioned domains.
How will the NCAE guide high school students and their parents in determining the career track they should take?

Reporting of results for HUMSS, STEM and ABM will be in Standard Score and Percentile Rank.

Likewise, the TVA score is the composite of the CA and VMS scores.

OIISSS: The level of preference for each area of occupational interest is displayed based on percentage score which is as follows: high (76-100), moderate (51-75), low (26-50) and very low (0-25)

Examinees can gauge their individual strengths and weaknesses in every domain/area measured based on the test results.


COR = Certificate of Rating

The COR contains the report on how the examinees performed in the test which is presented in a graph alongside the Standard Scores and Percentile Ranks.

The descriptive rating of the Percentile Rank is also included.

The overall GSA and TVA scores are reported along with scores in the sub-tests.

The GSA score is the average of the standard scores in these areas: SA, RC, VA, MA and LRA.

What information is derived from the NCAE COR?


To assess the skills of Grade 9 students planning to proceed to senior HS, toward providing relevant information on their skills, abilities and readiness for academic and non-academic courses;

To provide information that will help high school students make wise career decision; and
