When in Manila, the National Career Assessment Examination (NCAE) that was supposedly scheduled today, was postponed due to the heavy rains caused by Typhoon Pedring (Nesat), according to the Department of Education. DepEd Undersecretary for Legal and Legislative Affairs Alberto Muyot said the NCAE in Cordillera Administrative Region (CAR), National Capital Region (NCR) and regions 1, 2, 3, 4A, 4B and 5 has been moved to September 30 because of “operational and administrative limitations.”

Muyot added that Regional and Division Offices may decide to move further the examination date, depending on the situation.
“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,” Muyot said.
The NCAE is administered to fourth-year and third-year high school students in both public and private secondary schools.Its results will reflect the interest and career inclination of the student, whether it be technical-vocational, entrepreneurial, or a full college education course.
