Prohibition of NEAT/NSAT Review Classes and Sale of Reviewers

To: Bureau Directors

Vocational School Superintendents/Administrators

  1. The Department Culture and Sports announces the Strict prohibition on the conduct of review classes in preparation for the taking of the annual NEAT and NSAT. Reports have reached this Office that schools charge exorbitant fees for the review classes and review materials. These review classes disturb the class schedules and the coverage of the subject to be taught becomes limited. If the intention of the tests is really to measure the extent of which the competencies are learned, then review defeats the purpose.
  2. To prepare the examinees on the process of standardized tests and the procedure of filling up the answer sheets, sessions during actual class hours, including simulated sessions, may be conducted.
  3. Regional Directors and Schools Division Superintendents are enjoined to see to the strict implementation as well as apply the appropriate sanction for those violating this Order.
  4. Immediate dissemination of and strict compliance with this Order is desired.
