Homeschoolers: FREE PEPT (Phil Educational Placement Test) from DepEd

Just received this note on from the Pinoy Homeschooling newsletter:

Hello all!

Just found out that DepEd will be giving FREE PEPT (Phil Educational Placement Test) this June 12. In case you are wondering, the PEPT is given to "out-of-school youths for an opportunity to go back to formal education". The PEPT this June will be free as part of the Independence Day celebration. The tests results will determine the grade or year level appropriate for the test taker.

1. The exam will cover English, Math, Science, Filipino and HEKASI/Araling Panlipunan
2. Registration will be at DepEd division offices nationwide (my son registered at Paranaque Central School) 
3. Registration will be until TOMORROW only - May 25, 2012.
4. Requirements: xeroxed copy of Form 137/138, xeroxed copy of birth certificate, 2 1x1 pictures. Just bring the original documents in case they want to verify.
5. The registrant has to go to the division office personally to register. Had to go back twice because my son wasn't with me the first time.

If you have some questions about the PEPT this June, you can call DepEd at 6321361-71 or check out their website for info about the division office in your area. 

Happy homeschooling to all!
