NCAE No More Needed

Photo from Forever Smile at me blog
During our time, back in those days, we had NCEE or National College Entrance Examintaion (hope I got it right, after all those years).
This time, two of my kids had the same aptitude examination, my son who had it two years ago when he was at 4th year and last year my daughter had it, she was third year then.  It's not anymore called NCEE, but NCAE.  The National Career Assessment Examination, known mostly as NCAE, is administered yearly to measure students aptitude and skills in the areas of general scholastic aptitude, technical- vocation aptitude, entrepreneurial skills, non-verbal ability and occupational fields of interest.  In essence, students who intend to go to college or take vocational courses need to take the exam.  As a parent and educator, I believed in the purpose of this but DepEd knows well where the innovations will lead our future professionals.

With that said, let us hear an announcement from The Department of Education (DepEd).  According to DepEd, the National Career Assessment Examination (NCAE), which determines the interests and career inclination of students, will no longer be administered to Grade 8 students this year.

“As the pioneer batch of the senior high school, NCAE is no longer deemed necessary for our Grade 8 students since they will have a comprehensive learning of what career they want to pursue when they reach Grades 11 and 12.” said Education Secretary Br. Armin A. Luistro FSC.

The NCAE will still be administered to third year high school students in both public and private secondary schools on August 28, 2013. Also covered are fourth year high school students applying for scholarship programs offered by the Commission on Higher Education (CHED) and Technical Education and Skills Development Authority (TESDA). It is also open to other interested fourth year students, out-of-school youth and A and E passers.
