MANILA, Philippines – The National Career Assessment Examination (NCAE), originally scheduled for September 28, has been postponed in Luzon due to heavy rains brought about by typhoon “Pedring," according to the Department of Education (DepEd).
DepEd Undersecretary for Legal and Legislative Affairs Alberto Muyot said the NCAE in Cordillera Administrative Region (CAR), National Capital Region (NCR) and regions 1, 2, 3, 4A, 4B and 5 has been moved to September 30 due to “operational and administrative limitations.”
The NCAE is given to fourth-year and third-year high school students in public and private secondary schools.
Muyot added that depending on the situation, Regional and Division Offices may decide to further move the examination date.
“All other areas shall continue to hold the NCAE on September 28, 2011 as stated in DepEd Memorandum No. 153, s. 2011 and in the enclosure of DepEd Order No. 28, s. 2011,” Muyot said in a statement.
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.
