August 7, 1997 – DO 59, s. 1997 – Erroneous NEAT/NSAT Reviewers
To: Regional Directors
Private Elementary and Secondary School Principals
Vocational High School Principals
- Reports have reached this Office that there are what purport to be NEAT/NSAT reviewers which contain numerous errors being sold to the public.
- The Department of Education, Culture and Sports has not authorized anybody to print, publish or sell NEAT/NSAT reviewers, nor to conduct review classes for the NEAT/NSAT. In fact, the Department has discouraged the conduct of review classes and the production and sale of reviewers, because these would defeat the objectives of the test.
- In view of this, all DECS officials and personnel are hereby directed to inform all students/pupils and their parents about this DECS policy. They are likewise instructed to monitor the schools in their respective areas of responsibility to ensure that these NEAT/NSAT reviewers containing erroneous materials are not circulated.
- For strict and immediate compliance.
