NCAE postponed in Luzon due to Bagyong Pedring

The National Career Assessment Examination or the NCAE has been postponed in Luzon due to Bagyong Pedring which continues to bring heavy rains in 8 Luzon regions, including the National Capital Region (NCR).

As announced by the Department of Education (DepEd) Tuesday, the NCAE scheduled today, September 28, in Regions 1, 2, 3, 4A, 4B, 5, CAR, and the NCR has been moved to Friday, September 30, 2011.

Note that only the NCAE in Luzon has been postponed, thus the NCAE in other areas (Visayas and Mindanao) still pushes through today.

Here's the advisory from DepEd released yesterday:

Due to operational and administrative limitations caused by Typhoon Pedring in Regions 1, 2, 3, 4A, 4B, 5, CAR, and the NCR, DepEd Undersecretary Alberto Muyot announced the postponement of the National Career Assessment Examination (NCAE) from September 28 to September 30, 2011 to allow for the preparation of test centers and delivery of test materials on September 29.

Depending on the local situation in their areas, regional and division offices may decide to further move the examination date.

All other areas shall continue to hold the NCAE on September 28, 2011 as stated in DepEd Memorandum No. 153, s. 2011 and in the enclosure of DepEd Order No. 28, s. 2011.

The DepEd will continue to closely monitor the situation of our schools in affected areas. We encourage our school and division personnel as well as communities to report damages in schools to the DepEd Operation Center that will be open 24 hours for monitoring through hotline numbers 09396521111, fax at 6337263, and email at

Back in July, the NCAE was already postponed (originally scheduled on August 31 and moved to September 28) to give sufficient time for comprehensive career guidance to 3rd year high school students and 4th year high school student-applicants of CHED and TESDA Scholarship Programs.
