THE UNIVERSITY recorded a perfect passing rate in the September 2021 licensure examinations for secondary-level teachers.

All 10 examinees from UST made the cut, but UST did not qualify for a top-performing school spot as it did not have at least 50 examinees.

According to the College of Education dean, Assoc. Prof. Pilar Romero, only a few took the licensure exams for teachers (LET) from UST because of the gap year caused by the K-12 implementation.

“It is only during this current academic year that we have the usual number of pre-service teachers who will take the BLEPT (Board Licensure Examination for Professional Teachers),” Romero told the Varsitarian.

Vincent Casona Bayawa of the Cebu Normal University topped the high-school LET with a score of 93.40 percent.

West Visayas State University- La Paz was the top-performing school in the secondary-level LET after recording a 91.55-percent passing rate.

Cebu Technological University-Main was the only top-performing school for the elementary-level LET with an 88.64 percent passing rate, or 78 out of 88 examinees. 

Rowena Solicito Bongolto of Mindanao State University in General Santos City topped the LET for elementary teachers with a score of 92.00 percent.

UST did not field examinees in the elementary-level LET. 

The number of examinees nationwide dropped from December 2019’s 92,440 examinees to 8,726 examinees this year in the elementary level and from 126,582 to 17,863 examinees in the secondary level.
