The College of Teacher Education once again has proven its commitment to excellence after 81 of its graduates hurdled the September 2023 Licensure Examination for Teachers.

Data released by the Professional Regulation Commission (PRC) on December 7 revealed that the college listed an overall performance of 67.65 percent for Bachelor of Elementary Education (BEED) while 73.38 percent for Bachelor of Secondary Education (BSED), surpassing the national passing rate of 47.01 and 56.26 percent, respectively.

Among the 81 takers who passed, 67 are first-timer takers while 14 are re-takers from both the BEED and BSED.

The result also showed that three majors under the BSED program registered 100 percent ratings. All 13 graduates of the BSED English, six from the BSED Filipino, and five from the BSED Mathematics passed the examination, while the BSED Social Science and BEED program registered nine over 10 and 20 over 21 passers, respectively.

Reports revealed that BSED Math also registered a hundred percent rating last examination episode.

According to Professor Gemma R. Pascual, CTE Dean, this year’s ratings is higher compared last year because out of 62 takers, 59 passed the licensure examination.

“… kaya malayo ang performance ng mga graduates natin ngayon kumpara sa performance nila last year. Although, konti lang naman ang nilamang ng mga passers natin ngayon. So, better ang performance nila ngayong batch September 2023 kumpara sa batch last year,” the college dean stated.

With the registered BLEPT performance, the college dean revealed that the college observes mechanisms to prepare the students for the examination.

“We partner with review centers to enhance the preparation of the graduates aside from the rigid comprehensive review conducted aligned in the curriculum,” she added.

“Before accepting students, there is a rigid interview and qualifications review that they need to meet, aside from basic requirements...when they are in their fourth year, they need to undergo a course audit, which is like a form of review conducted to prepare them for the exam. And lastly, they enroll in different review centers,” Prof. Pascual said. #tInn
