LET or the Licensure Examination for Teachers is a nationwide test for all aspiring teachers. This licensing test is biannually conducted for both primary and secondary levels of teaching.
The most recent Licensure Examination for Teachers (LET) happened in September 30, 2018. It was administered by the PRC Board of Professional Teachers. The board was headed by its Chairman, Dr. Rosita L. Navarro, its Vice Chairman Dr. Paz I. Lucido, together with its members – Dr. Paraluman R. Giron and Dr. Nora M. Uy.
