PASIG CITY, April 12, 2018 – The Department of Education (DepEd) seeks to clarify that the administration dates of the National Achievement Test for Grade 12 completers (NAT 12) will differ per school division. This is to correct reports today claiming that DepEd has supposedly announced the cancellation of NAT 12.

The advisory issued by Curriculum and Instruction Undersecretary Lorna Dino on April 5 clearly stated that “the Schools Division Superintendents (SDSs) shall decide on the dates of the test administration once the test materials have been delivered to the respective Division offices (DOs) of sampled schools.”

During a press conference last March 26, Dino announced that NAT 12 will be conducted among randomly selected schools tentatively scheduled to begin on April 12.
