A Complete Guide for 2020 LET Online Application

The Professional Regulation Commission conducts the Licensure Examination for Teachers (LET) for education graduates who aspire to become professional teachers. It is given twice a year, every March and September, in various testing centers nationwide.

The first step to take the LET is to apply for the examination.

  • Must be 18 years old and above;

  16. Hi. Thank’s for this guide. It’s definitely very helpful. 🙂 The LERIS website is currently down and cannot be accessed. Would you happen to know if it’s possible to process my LET application in one of PRC’s offices? Is it also possible to have a representative process my application for me since I am currently employed and have to report to work Monday to Friday 8 to 5 making me unable to personally process my application.

  17. Gud day po, ano po ba mga pwedeng gamiting supportive documents para po makapag take? kc po ung gender ng birth certificate ng gf ko is male nakalagay sa halip na female, pwede po ba makapagtake ng exam kahit po on process pa ung birth certificate? Gusto po nia kc magtake ng let this September, please help po, salamat po and God Bless

      • Hi same case with me. 4 years ago, pero ako walang gender. You just need to secure an affidavit from atty, stating you true gender. Acceptable na yun kay PRC.

  18. Paano po ang procedure ng filing for OFW? Pwede po magfile ang kamaganak? Then uuwi na lang sa araw ng exam?
    Salamt po.
