The Department of Education (DepEd) announced that the National Career Assessment Examination (NCAE), which determines the interests and career inclination of students, will no longer be administered to Grade 8 students this year.


“As the pioneer batch of the senior high school, NCAE is no longer deemed necessary for our Grade 8 students since they will have a comprehensive learning of what career they want to pursue when they reach Grades 11 & 12.” said Education Secretary Br. Armin A. Luistro FSC.

The NCAE will still be administered to third year high school students in both public and private secondary schools on August 28, 2013. Also covered are fourth year high school students applying for scholarship programs offered by the Commission on Higher Education (CHED) and Technical Education and Skills Development Authority (TESDA). It is also open to other interested fourth year students, out-of-school youth and A & E passers.
