Good evening po. Saan po ang reviewer center nyo for nqesh specifically in CDO and Iligan City, Mindanao? Sad to say I'm not one of those lucky who passed the recent exam. I also read in some of the DepEd bloggers that there is a score swapping? How is that possible? Is that true?
One more thing po, can I request a copy of your nqesh reviewer so I may have something to study at home. You can email it at me if pag bbgyan nyo po requests ko.

Reliable Reviewer for Qualifying Exam for Principals is now updated to conformed with the latest exam. For more details you can text me with my cp. no. 09155407032 or visit coolteacher28.blogspot. com for sample questions.
if you're hands-on to your job as school head, it's easy to pass the test. Those who are already heading a school but still didn't pass, review SBM, RA9155, Child protection policy. Good Luck for next NQESH.
The passing is not so high. Percentile rank po ang ginagamit. Kaya yung upper 10 percent po ang nakakapasa. Disregarded po doon ang number of correct answer.
TRy na lang po ulit.
213 Rizalina L. Guerrero (29-March-2013 11:32 AM) Am one who took the test. But unluckily i didn't. The passing is so high. somewhat unreachable. Am willing to subscribe ant review materials if there. Hope to hear soon your reply. Thanks.
Am interested to avail any review materials regarding the NQSEH in order to have a direction what to review in preparation for the next exam. Though it's my first time to take the said NQESH despite i didn't make it but i still believe i still have other chances. Hope to hear soon your reply. Thanks again... God Bless....
na post na po ang full list of results passers and non passers, just posted this day. go to www.deped.gov.ph nasa NEWS then updates, then educators, then download nu po the whole results are listed by region. good luck!!!!!
the 2013 NQESH are already posted on WWW.deped.gov.ph. Just click issuances then memos, only the top ten are posted, the complete list of passers is not posted yet, i just saw it, good luck takers, hope we pass.
Marami po ang nag-aantay ng result. Possible na maipost po ang result up to mid of April. Pag release ng result yung mga makakapasa ay di rin agad mainstall as principal dahil sa election ban. July po makakaupo ang mga papalarin. Maging matiyaga na lang po sa pag-iintay. Nag-antay na rin lang naman.
For the information. It is percentile rank. Not the percentage of correct answers. The basis of passing is percentile rank. If you belong to the upper 10 percent you belong to the passers. So 10% of the takers are the passers and 90% will be the re-takers this 2013 if they still want to push with it.
Mr. Ricardo C. Alburo, "The aspirant must have an experience of at least five (5) years in the aggregate as head teacher, teacher-in-charge, master teacher and teacher III, consistent with DepED Memorandum No. 140, s. 2009 entitled "Corrigendum to DepED Memorandum No. 97, s. 2009 (2009 National Qualifying Examination for Principals)."
You dedicated your service to private schools then you aspire to serve with public schools. I think you have to go with step 1 until you get to the qualifying round.
I am a licensed professional teacher. I have been teaching in a private tertiary school for more than 20 years and I been serving in the same school as a dean of liberal arts and dean of office of student affairs for more than 15 years. Having this job experience and being a professional licensed teacher, am I qualified to take Qualifying Examination for School Head and, eventually, serve as school head of public elementary or high school?
Since the exam is moved, some, including me, have already completed the 5 years requirement as TIC this Dec. 3, 2012. If the exam is moved to january 2012, will there be extension on the application period?
According to my classmate who is now an ASDS in the Division City of Cauayan the NQESH Exam will be on January 06, 2013. That is the pronoucement of the NEAP director during his seminar in Manila last week. So, let's continue reviewing in preparation with our test. Hopefully, we will pass all. he he he.
May I also recommend from the NEAP that Master Teacher position should also have examination so that it will be fair also to the deserving one. because when they ranked they show certificates which are fabricated. it is not reliable so why not having examination starting next year. I hope this will give preferential attention. Thanks and God bless to all NEAP Employees.
