SEPTEMBER 2023 LET: Requirements & Application




What is the Licensure Examination for Teachers?

The Licensure Examination for Teachers (LET) is a standardized exam in the Philippines that measures the competencies and qualifications of individuals who want to become licensed professional teachers. The exam is administered by the Professional Regulation Commission (PRC) twice a year, usually in March and September.

The LET has two levels: the elementary level, which is intended for those who want to teach in grades 1-6, and the secondary level, which is intended for those who want to teach in high school. The exam covers various subjects, including general education, professional education, and a specialization subject for the secondary level.

Passing the LET is one of the requirements for individuals to obtain a professional teaching license in the Philippines, which is necessary for anyone who wants to teach in public or private schools. The exam is designed to ensure that only qualified and competent individuals are licensed to teach, and to help raise the quality of education in the country.
