Tips on passing the licensure

  1. 1. Tips on Passing the Licensure Examination for Teachers (LET) First published on March 11, 2009 Updated on April 15, 2012 REAH GUEVARRA
  2. 2. • # 1 Know your weak and strong subjects/classes.
  3. 3. • # 1 Know your weak and strong subjects/classes. Allot a few hours each day or each week to review the lessons for classes you did well when you were still in college. Enjoy this review time so you can easily remember what you are re-learning.
  4. 4. • # 1 Know your weak and strong subjects/classes. Allot a few hours each day or each week to review the lessons for classes you did well when you were still in college. Enjoy this review time so you can easily remember what you are re-learning. Allot more time, however, on classes you were weak in. Well, at least if you are weak in mathematics for example, make sure you don’t miss reviewing the concepts that will be tested in the General Math part of the licensure exam.

Enjoy this review time so you can easily remember what you are re-learning. Allot more time, however, on classes you were weak in. Well, at least if you are weak in mathematics for example, make sure you don’t miss reviewing the concepts that will be tested in the General Math part of the licensure exam. It will be easy to find out your areas of weaknesses. Check the grades in your transcript or assess yourself which among the classes you took you don’t remember much about.
  6. 6. • # 2 Understand the major theories, concepts and techniques in Professional Education subjects.
  7. 7. • # 2 Understand the major theories, concepts and techniques in Professional Education subjects. Understanding the theories and concepts by heart will allow you to answer questions that are written to confuse you. There are times that you have to choose which among the situations on the choices will be logical based on theories or concepts mentioned or implied in the question.
  8. 8. • # 2 Understand the major theories, concepts and techniques in Professional Education subjects. Understanding the theories and concepts by heart will allow you to answer questions that are written to confuse you. There are times that you have to choose which among the situations on the choices will be logical based on theories or concepts mentioned or implied in the question. I didn’t have any teaching experience when I took the exam so I really based a lot of my answers on what I remembered from my college years.
  9. 9. • # 3 Strive hard to improve your analytical skills on answering questions.
  10. 10. • # 3 Strive hard to improve your analytical skills on answering questions. After you reviewed the theories and concepts, you should test your understanding by differentiating and explaining these in your own words. While reviewing, rephrase ideas and think of actual applications.
  11. 11. • # 3 Strive hard to improve your analytical skills on answering questions. For example, in methods of teaching, allow yourself to compare method 1 with method 2, then ask yourself why method 1 is preferred than the other on certain situations. Ask yourself questions like: • “Why are you doing _________?” • “Why is it similar to ______________?” • “What if you will not _________, what will happen?” • “Why the result is different?” • “How can I apply this?” • “Have I experienced this myself?” • “What other examples can I think of?” • “In other words, this is about ____________.”
  12. 12. • # 3 Strive hard to improve your analytical skills on answering questions. Just keep asking yourself regarding whatever you’ve just read on your review. Analyze and answer in your own words. If there are questions at the end of each chapter of your book, answer those questions.
  13. 13. • # 3 Strive hard to improve your analytical skills on answering questions. Enjoy this process so you will remember.
  14. 14. • #4 Review General Education subjects.
  15. 15. • #4 Review General Education subjects. Remember that you have to pass all three sets of tests including General Education (for Secondary Education) and two sets of the tests (for Elementary Education).
  16. 16. • #4 Review General Education subjects. Remember that you have to pass all three sets of tests including General Education (for Secondary Education) and two sets of the tests (for Elementary Education). Don’t assume that General Education is easy since you took the Gen Ed classes when you were in Elementary or High School. Remember that a lot of years had passed. So refresh your memory especially on common mathematical equations (e.g. Fractions, Volumes, Areas, Percentages, Ages, Distance and Time computations) and major science concepts (e.g. Matter, Gravity, Mass, Energy, Friction). You’ll never know what will show up in your test.
  17. 17. • #4 Review General Education subjects. Solve problems listed on your review materials or old books.
  18. 18. • # 5 prepare everything you need for the exam.
  19. 19. • # 5 prepare everything you need for the exam. Make sure you have read the test guidelines, which included the things you need to bring for the exam.
  20. 20. • # 5 prepare everything you need for the exam. Make sure you have read the test guidelines, which included the things you need to bring for the exam. Also check if the calculator you plan to bring for the exam is in PRC’s list of allowed calculators. If not, buy or borrow a calculator that has a model listed there (I bought mine). If you don’t want to buy a new one, make sure you have a non-programmable calculator. But don’t take my word on this because I wasn’t sure if other proctors had allowed calculators not in the list. Although my friend said she didn’t even check the list and just grabbed a basic calculator on the exam day. Proctors check each calculator before the exam starts.
  21. 21. • # 6 get enough sleep before the exam.
  22. 22. • # 6 get enough sleep before the exam. Make sure you don’t feel drowsy while taking the exam so you have enough time to answer all the test questions. You don’t want to fail because you didn’t have enough sleep the night before.
  23. 23. • # 7 Avoid erasures, OR MAKE THE ERASURE CLEAN AT LEAST. And Of Course, Shade it properly!
  24. 24. • # 7 Avoid erasures, OR MAKE THE ERASURE CLEAN AT LEAST. And Of Course, Shade it properly! In Centro Escolar University (CEU), where I attended college from 2003 to 2007, we used Scantron papers for our prelim, mid-term, and final exams. So, I’m used to answering tests by shading boxes.
  25. 25. • # 7 Avoid erasures, OR MAKE THE ERASURE CLEAN AT LEAST. And Of Course, Shade it properly! In Centro Escolar University (CEU), where I attended college from 2003 to 2007, we used Scantron papers for our prelim, mid-term, and final exams. So, I’m used to answering tests by shading boxes. I knew how erasures could make a bad score. So before you shade it, make sure you are shading the right answer, or at least it is your final answer. If you need to erase it, make sure it is clean. But I still don’t think it is a good idea.
  26. 26. • # 7 Avoid erasures, OR MAKE THE ERASURE CLEAN AT LEAST. And Of Course, Shade it properly! So, before the exam day, try the eraser you plan to bring. On a white paper, or a semi-cardboard white paper, write something on it with the pencil you plan to bring and erase this writing with this eraser. If the eraser erases cleanly your writing, then you are good.

On a white paper, or a semi-cardboard white paper, write something on it with the pencil you plan to bring and erase this writing with this eraser. If the eraser erases cleanly your writing, then you are good. I also make sure when I shade the box of my answer, I don’t shade it beyond the box (huwag lumampas ang shading). Don’t shade it heavily too (Baka masira mo ung papel).
  28. 28. • # 8 Skip questions you aren’t sure and go back to them later on.
  29. 29. • # 8 Skip questions you aren’t sure and go back to them later on. There are some questions that no matter how well you prepared for the exam, you will have no idea what the answer is or it will take you a lot of time to answer it. If you come across to questions like these skip the questions first. Answer questions that you know as much as you can then go back to the questions you skipped.
  30. 30. • # 8 Skip questions you aren’t sure and go back to them later on. If you still can’t figure out the right answer the second time you look at the skipped question, make an educated guess. Eliminate options that are obvious detractors, and usually you will just end up with two possible answers.
  31. 31. • # 8 Skip questions you aren’t sure and go back to them later on. If you still can’t figure out the right answer the second time you look at the skipped question, make an educated guess. Eliminate options that are obvious detractors, and usually you will just end up with two possible answers. Make a very educated guess at this point when you really can’t figure the right one out. Or follow your instinct •
  32. 32. • # 9 Follow instructions.
  33. 33. • # 9 Follow instructions. Listen to what the proctor is telling you during the exam. If you are confused, ask the proctor directly not your seatmate.
  34. 34. • # 10 bring with you your Common Sense.
  35. 35. • # 10 bring with you your Common Sense. Most of the time, you haven’t reviewed whatever appears on the real exam. What will help you answer the exam are your basic understanding of the topics and your analytical skill. Don’t overdo it though because you might miss the right answer.
  36. 36. • Anyway, here’s tip #11:
  37. 37. • Anyway, here’s tip #11: When trying to solve math problems manually (paper and pen), make an effort to organize your solutions.
  38. 38. • Anyway, here’s tip #11: When trying to solve math problems manually (paper and pen), make an effort to organize your solutions. At any empty corner of the solution you just wrote, write the number of the question that solution was for.
  39. 39. • Anyway, here’s tip #11: When trying to solve math problems manually (paper and pen), make an effort to organize your solutions. At any empty corner of the solution you just wrote, write the number of the question that solution was for. Then encircle this number or use any symbols you would like. Then, box the entire solution with the number in it or at least separate that section with a line from the other solutions you have.
  40. 40. • Anyway, here’s tip #11: When trying to solve math problems manually (paper and pen), make an effort to organize your solutions. At any empty corner of the solution you just wrote, write the number of the question that solution was for. Then encircle this number or use any symbols you would like. Then, box the entire solution with the number in it or at least separate that section with a line from the other solutions you have. This way, if you are unable to solve a problem quickly you can easily go back to it later on and see what you already have done for that question.
  41. 41. • Anyway, here’s tip #11: You don’t have to do this with every math question you are trying to solve. Do this with questions you decided to give up at that moment.
  42. 42. • And another but not related to just Math, tip #12:
  43. 43. • And another but not related to just Math, tip #12: Do not spend a lot of time answering one question when there are still a lot of questions you may answer right quickly. This is a paraphrasing of my Tip #8 from my previous article, but there’s an addition to it.
  44. 44. • And another but not related to just Math, tip #12: Do not spend a lot of time answering one question when there are still a lot of questions you may answer right quickly. This is a paraphrasing of my Tip #8 from my previous article, but there’s an addition to it. Keep a section of your scratch paper, if you have any, and name that section “skipped questions” or just “skipped” with the appropriate subjects. Put the numbers of your skipped questions here.
  45. 45. • And another but not related to just Math, tip #12: Do not spend a lot of time answering one question when there are still a lot of questions you may answer right quickly. This is a paraphrasing of my Tip #8 from my previous article, but there’s an addition to it. Keep a section of your scratch paper, if you have any, and name that section “skipped questions” or just “skipped” with the appropriate subjects. Put the numbers of your skipped questions here. Later on, when you have time, go back to those skipped questions and cross a number out once you finish answering it.
  46. 46. • And another but not related to just Math, tip #12: If you are allowed to write on the test booklets, just go ahead and mark that skipped question with a star or an “x” mark, so you can easily find these questions when you are going over the test the second time.
  47. 47. • Tip #13:
  48. 48. • Tip #13: Be careful with questions that have conditions such as “not”, “except”, “including”, “never”, “only”, “best”, and other similar words.
  49. 49. • Tip #13: Be careful with questions that have conditions such as “not”, “except”, “including”, “never”, “only”, “best”, and other similar words. It’s been a while and I didn’t have my old LET reviewers with me in my current location, so I can’t verify if there are really questions that have these words.
  50. 50. • Tip #13: Be careful with questions that have conditions such as “not”, “except”, “including”, “never”, “only”, “best”, and other similar words. It’s been a while and I didn’t have my old LET reviewers with me in my current location, so I can’t verify if there are really questions that have these words. But I took some multiple choice exams in the past year and there were questions that contained these words.
  51. 51. • Tip #13: The tip is: Read and understand the question thoroughly. You can rephrase the question as well, and maybe by doing that, you will understand it better.
  52. 52. • Tip #13: The tip is: Read and understand the question thoroughly. You can rephrase the question as well, and maybe by doing that, you will understand it better. When you missed reading the word “except” in the question, then your answer is most likely wrong.exam was over.
  53. 53. My Advise / Tips
  54. 54. • My Advise / Tips: • “Fail to prepare, prepare to fail” • “Pray hard, review harder” • “All is well, all is well, all is well”
