A&E Test

The ALS Accreditation and Equivalency (A&E) Assessment and Certification is a process that comprises an exam and other appropriate assessments to measure the competencies acquired by ALS learners based on the ALS K to 12 Basic Education Curriculum (BEC).

Completers of ALS who are passers of the A&E Test are given certificates bearing the Department of Education (DepEd) seal, the ALS logo, the Schools Division Office’s logo, dry seal and designated signatories, and the school’s name (if the A&E passer completed ALS under a school or an SBM School for ALS) or the Community Learning Center’s name (if the A&E passer completed ALS under a CLC). This duly signed official document certifies their competencies as comparable graduates of the formal education system.

Under DepEd Order No. 27, series 2018 (Amendment to DepEd Order No. 42, s. 2015, or the High School Graduates Who are Eligible to Enroll in Higher Education Institutions in School Year 2016-2017, in Relation to ALS), beginning school year 2018-2019 and for subsequent school years, passers of previous A&E Tests (high school level), and of the November 2017, March 2018, and February and March 2019 A&E Tests (high school level), who are all high school graduates of the old basic education curriculum for ALS, are eligible to:

a. Enroll in college/university as First Year students, subject to admission policies and requirements of higher education institutions (HEIs); or
b. Take skills development training programs; or

c. Enroll in Senior High School at any public school, or private school of their choice (subject to admission requirements).
