Copy of National Career Assessment Examination
Transcript of Copy of National Career Assessment Examination
Examination One of the reasons the NCAE was
developed was to address the issue of unemployment due to workers getting mismatched with the wrong careers.
The hope is that by determining which
careers they are ideally suited for, students
can plan a course of study that will give
them the skills and education they will
need for their ideal careers. Importance NCAE test results are only one part
of the bigger picture in determining
the best career fit for a student. Students shouldn't make major decisions based on
NCAE results alone. Their entire school
career as well as their own goals and
interests should be considered when
deciding on a course of study
and a career. Considerations The NCAE test is mandatory and held annually. Its a paper and pencil test using multiple choices format, on scannable answer sheets which can be checked electronically. NCAE also measures a senior high school student’s potentials or inclination in such areas as general scholastic aptitude (GSA), technical vocational aptitude (TVA), entrepreneurial skills, nonverbal ability and occupational interest.
Purpose of the Test The purpose of the NCAE is to
help students determine which
courses they should study in
college and what sort of career
they are best suited for. Like
many standardized tests, the
NCAE measures students'
general scholastic knowledge.
However, the NCAE also tests
and entrepreneurial skills. The National Career Assessment
Examination or NCAE is a test taken
by high school students in the
Philippines that determines their
strengths in different career fields.
It was first given in January 2007 and
replaces the former National College
Entrance Examination. An August 26, 2011 press release from the Department of Education
The Department of Education announces the amendments to the administration of the National Career Assessment Examination (NCAE), including the change of examination date, which has been moved from August 31, 2011 to September 28, 2011.
The NCAE, which used to be given to fourth-year high school students, is now administered for third-year high school students both in public and private secondary schools. Also covered to take the NCAE are fourth-year high school students who are applying for scholarship programs offered by the Commission on Higher Education (CHED) and the Technical Education and Skills Development Authority (TESDA).
New guidelines and date
for National Career Assessment Examination (NCAE) “We deem it better to administer the NCAE to third-year high school students
to give them sufficient time for comprehensive career guidance before they
enter the tertiary level,” said Education Secretary Armin Luistro.
DepEd Order No. 28 s. 2011 stipulates that the fourth-year students who will
take the NCAE for CHED and TESDA scholarship should belong to the top 10
percent of each secondary high school regardless of school size. Also, they
should have a general weighted average of 80 percent in third year and
should come from a family whose gross annual income is not more than
A letter of intent signed by the parents of the examinees must be submitted
signifying that they are interested to apply for the CHED/TESDA scholarship.
NCAE is also open to other interested fourth year students, out-of-school
youth and A & E passers.
The results of the NCAE will show the interest and career inclination of the student, whether it is technical-vocational, entrepreneurial, or a full college education course. “This way parents and students will be guided on what career track is best to take after high school graduation, and we want to remind people that the result of the NCAE is not mandatory but recommendatory,” explained Luistro.
The NCAE is an important tool of the government to address the job mismatch, cut unemployment rate, and reverse the local “brain drain” phenomenon. Present conditions indicate that a large number of college graduates fail to find appropriate employment suited for the course they finished. This has resulted in unemployment and oversupply of college graduates in white-collar jobs while resulting in shortages in skilled manpower. The NCAE is an assessment of students’ aptitudes and skills and estimates what field or discipline the student can excel in. It is nondiscriminatory for people who have aptitude for technical-vocational and entrepreneurial courses.
