DO 14, s. 1994 – Graduating Grade VI Pupils Who Failed to Take the National Elementary Achievement Test (NEAT), or Who Are Candidates for Honors
To: Bureau Directors, Regional Directors and Schools Superintendents
Heads of State Colleges and Universities
Heads of Private Schools, Colleges and Universities
- Inquiries have been made concerning Grade VI pupils, expecting to graduate during this 1993-1994, who failed to take either the 1993 Regular or the Special National Elementary Achievement Test, or NEAT. In such a case, the pupil concerned should be given a final failing grade of sixty per cent (60%), and such a grade with a weight of one-ninth shall be used in comput¬ing the pupil’s general average, in accordance with the provisions of DECS Order No. 30, s. 1993. Notwithstanding the failing grade in NEAT, it should still be possible for the pupil to obtain a passing general average, if the grades in the other subjects are satisfactory.
- In those cases where the pupil may have been a candidate for honors, the pupil should have obtained a grade of at least seventy-five per cent (75%) in the NEAT. It is not necessary that the pupil must have obtained an honors grade in the NEAT.
- These policies are effective for the current school year 1993-94 only, and are subject to modification in subsequent years. This Order supersedes previous issuances on the matter. Immediate dissemination of this Order is desired for the proper Information and guidance of all concerned.
