March 2018 ALS A&E Test Registration and Exam Schedule

The Department of Education (DepEd) has announced the schedule of registration for the March 2018 ALS A&E Test (Alternative Learning System Accreditation and Equivalency Test), as well as the examination dates. The test, which was initially scheduled for February 2018, has been moved to March 2018!

Previously, I posed the question:
"How would those who did not pass the November 2017 exam possibly take the February 2018 test, when the registration period is only from December 1, 2017 up to January 12, 2018?" 

ALS A&E TEST February 2018 postponed to March 2018
Well, the DepEd announcement certainly clears this issue. Since the target date for the release of the results of the November 2017 ALS A&E Test is on or before January 31st 2018, test takers who failed to pass the said exam now have a chance to register for the March 2018 test.

Once a November 2017 test taker sees that he/she is not on the list of passers, he/she can register again for the March 2018 ALS A&E Test from January 31 to February 15 2018.

So, here are some more important things you need to know about the next ALS A&E Test:
  • ALS examinees from Luzon are scheduled to take the test on March 4 2018 (Sunday) while those from Visayas and Mindanao  are scheduled to take the test on March 11 2018 (also a Sunday).
  • Registration requirements include
    • Original and photocopy of Certification of ALS Program Completion issued by the Learning Facilitator (for ALS learners)
    • Original and photocopy of NSO birth certificate - if not available, you can submit Voters ID, Passport, Baptismal Certificate, Driver's License or any legal document bearing your name, picture and signature, such as NBI clearance or Barangay Certificate
    • Two (2) 1x1 ID pictures with white background and nametag (last name, first name, full middle name) at the bottom.
  • The exam is purely multiple choice, meaning NO ESSAY and NO PORTFOLIO.
  • The passing rate is 75%.
  • March 2018 Examination results will be released not later than June 11 2018.
  • Passers of the 2017 and 2018 ALS A&E Test need to enroll in and graduate from Senior High School (SHS) before they can go to college. Deadline of application for SHS vouchers for ALS and PEPT is on June 15 2018
  • The DepEd memorandum announcing the registration and schedule of the test may be found here.

If you feel unsure about the result of your November 2017 examination, it would be better if you start reviewing again for the March 2018 A&E Test. Here are some sources where you can find reviewers and modules to help you pass the next exam:


  1. kailan po magkakaroon ng Exam po This 2018 po ...
    masusundan pa po and pwede po ba akong magtake 18 Years old po ako and di ko natapos ang HS ko po ..

    1. Hi Mhicaela! This 2018 ay wala nang ALS A&E exam pero dapat ay makapag-enroll ka na para mapasama ka sa susunod na exam sa 2019. Ito na ang huling batch na pwedeng dumeretso sa college kapag nakapasa sa secondary/high school level A&E test. Yes pwede ka mag-take ngayong 18 years old ka dahil ang minimum age ay 16 para sa high school level. Good luck sa iyo!

    2. Correction lang para sa nabanggit ko dito na sa 2019 ang susunod na exam. Napag-alaman ko sa ALS mobile teacher na kausap namin na sa October 2018 daw ang susunod na exam, pero naghihintay pa sila ng official memo mula sa DepED sa exact date kung kalian ito gaganapin.

  2. maam,pwd po b mg enroll online s ALS,n stop po kc aq ng 3rd yr highschool 2004,

    1. Hi! Para makapag-enroll sa ALS, punta ka sa pinakamalapit na public school sa inyong lugar at magtanong kung sino ang ALS coordinator o mobile teacher. Kung problema mo ang schedule, maari mo itong i-discuss sa kanila at tutulungan ka nila. Maari din kasing i=send nila sa iyo online ang mga modules para ma-review mo. Good luck sa iyo!

  3. hello po tanong ko lang po tungkol sa situation ng kapatid ko. Nag enroll po sya noong 2017-2018 ng ALS kaso po dipo sya nakapag exam noong March 2018 ano pong pweding gawin sakanya regarding sa situation nya gusto nya po kasing makapag college wala napo bang dadating na exam ngayung 2018 gaya po noong november 2017? salamat po

    1. Hi! Mayroon pang exam ngayong 2018. Ayon sa aming ALS mobile teacher, bandang October ito gaganapin pero wala pang exact date na inilalabas ang DepED. Ang pinakamabuting gawin ng kapatid mo ay makipag-ugnayan sa ALS teacher o coordinator na naka-assign sa lugar ninyo. Kung nakapag-enroll siya dati ay lumapit uli siya kung saan siya nag-enroll. Importante na mapasama siya sa batch na ito dahil ito na ang huling batch na pwedeng dumeretso sa College kapag nakapasa sa ALS A&E test. Good luck sa kapatid mo!

  4. hi.. just want to know of meron pong nxt als exam this year. if meron kailan po. thank you
