More information about the NQESH

The NQESH examination was originally scheduled to be given on November 11, 2012 but it was then moved to January 6, 2013. Unfortunately, NEAP cannot reproduce on time the test materials and answer sheets, hence the date was moved last January 20, 2013.

NQESH is a principalship exam which will be the basis for selecting competent school heads to serve in public schools. The main qualifications is that the applicants must have at least five years of aggregate experience as a head teacher, teacher-in-charge, master teacher and/or teacher III. The examination has 240 items which is answerable within four hours and is divided in two parts.

The NQESH is administered as a mechanism in selecting competent school heads to ensure that only highly-qualified educators will be posted as principal.

NQESH 2013 will cover the following dimensions of school leadership:

  1. School Leadership;
  2. Instructional Leadership;
  3. Creating a Learning Climate;
  4. Professional Human Resource Development;
  5. Parent Involvement in Building Communities;
  6. School Management and Daily Operations;
  7. Personal Integrity and Interpersonal Sensitivity;
  8. English Language Proficiency; and
  9. Reading Comprehension.

Congratulations to all the passers!

  8. sana may oath taking talaga lahat mga passsers…para naman very symbolic ang dating…what do you think guys? kc I am wondering why wala talaga oath taking…yung simple but worth remembering or an affair to remember ba kc hindi biro na makakuha ng 90%…hope DepEd and NEAP will consider my suggestion. Thanks.

  9. excuse po..paano po ba malalaman na pasado na..kapag ung raw score po ba eh 90 and above? o sa percentile rank po?kindly reply..please asap.

  10. is this the result of the NQESH 2013? ‘Coz when you zoom in the page, it’s marked as 2012 NQESH…which is which?

  11. The percentile rank of a score is the percentage of scores in its frequency distribution that are the same or lower than it. Score is the result of the exam. The one who posted the result should have known the difference, in order not to confuse people.

      • Oh! Really, I’m laughable??? Then that means that you didn’t get my point. I’m just trying to recommend improvements on this post in order to avoid further confusion, because you see, not all are as smart as you, so they can be confused by “percentile ranking” and “score” because just what I have said before the two things are different. Now if you were not confused by the results then good for you, but I was just pointing out a slight mistake for the benefit of other people. Further, you not getting my point is more laughable than for a person like me, issuing his concerns, since I’m just expressing my right to freedom of speech and expression as guaranteed by our constitution.

      • Kudos and Thank you for editing it! I’d like to apologize for my earlier tirades, after viewing it now I have realized that somehow I went overboard and used unreasonable words. I was just carried out by my passion and disappointment since I was confused with the word “score” and for that reason I have made a mistake of informing my friends that they all passed the exam when in truth only half of them were able to make it, and I made my friends who didn’t make it feel bad and I have to apologize for my mistake. So I thought it would be deemed as proper if I air some concerns about it in order to improve the post and to avoid further confusion, but I guess some of the words are too much. Again, pardon me and thank you for editing the post.

  12. Further, the one who created this post should have known the distinction between percentile rank and score, considering that two are completely different things. The fact that they’re lazy enough to create an organized and systematic data base for the results, saying that the “ones who pass have the score of 90″ are quite confusing, they should have stated that the ones who pass have the percentile ranking of over 90,” since such statements just add to the ambiguous nature of the data base for the results. The data base is very confusing since they mixed those who failed and those who passed. What a bunch lazy tards! Tsk, how disappointing.

      • @ Passer and @Mark…Failed??? That’s out of question…as a matter of fact, I’m not part of the Department of Education so there’s no way that I’m going to fail this exam. My point is, they should have made a more organized way of presenting those who failed and those who passed, if they can established a high standard of 90% passing rate then they should also comply with a high standard system, in order to avoid any vagueness in the presentation of the exam results. I was just voicing my concern on this matter. Because if PRC and the Supreme Court can release better data base for their exam results, I believe that the Department Education as the primary educational institution should do so. Come to think of it, what’s the point of mixing the results, they could just plainly put those who passed, I was just saying that they’re just lazy to filter the results and that’s what disappoints me. For the record, some of my friends were able to pass the exam but some of them failed this (and they were confused by the results, so I can’t just keep mum on how they present the results. We’re living in a democratic country, and as such by virtue of the freedom of speech and expression explicitly guaranteed by the 1987 constitution, I believe that I have the right to voice out certain issues which I might believe may help provide a better way of delivering services to the general public. If you can’t get my point, either you slumber on your rights by ignoring it or you don’t care at all. Further, it doesn’t mean that just because you passed this exam that you will not or will be afraid to point out certain technical irregularities. Remember that this exam has something to do with “SCHOOL LEADERSHIP,” so if you can find certain details that needs improvement, what one must do is to air your concerns so that it will be check, because that’s one of the exemplary way of showing true “LEADERSHIP,” by not overlooking simple things and trying to recommend ways to fix it. There is a slight mistake on the way this post this results and I believe that they should improve it next time.

  13. The way they post the results is disappointing in the sense that it did not specify the ones who passed or the ones who failed. They should have indicated it in order to avoid confusion. Looks like who ever did the data base was just a lazy tard.

  14. Thank you Lord! I made it! Thank you din po sa SMPH, malaki naitulong ng reviewer nila.Good luck po sa mga gustong mag try uli.God bless!

  15. to NEAP:only 10% or below pa ang nkapsa sa exam,pwede po ba babaan nman kht 80% ang passing rate.sobrang hirap po ng exam tpos antaas pa ng passing rate.please try to balance naman po.just like the bar result 2013.from 75% to 70%.sna namn nkita nyo nman ang dami ng ngtake and dami ng nafail.sana bgyan u ng chance makapasok ang mga tlgang abot namn sa kalahati ng total no.of items.or 75-80% man lng.salamat po.

    • to Deped/NEAP who managed the NQESH please lower to atleast 80% pr the passing rate….If the passing rate of Bar Exam (for Law) reduced to 70% from 75% why not for school heads’ exam?please hear and listen to our request…kindly consider this…

    • tama…sa akin isang point lang.hnd nga pumasa..bka my isang kulang pa sa akin ung ang paniniwala ko..sana sa susunud pumasa n ako…

  16. bakit wala pa result? naka post na sa deped website c top ten pero c listing kan passers wala naman. saan po ba maoopen ito? tnx.

  17. Ang galing talaga ng kumpare Rommel Casabar ko,top 7 sa NQESH, Im praying that isa rin ako sa 1457 na nakapasa ngayong 2013

  18. Only 1454 of the 14567 ( less than 10% ) met the 90 % cut-off score. .We are excited to see the complete lists. Only the top 10 are posted as of this time. Goodluck be with my co-teachers!!!!!!!!!

    • first week ng april pa next week all passers will be posted……sana tayo ay nakasabay pra naman ma promote na……

  19. na post na po ang result, top ten pa nga lang, wala pa ang full list of Passers, good luck sa mga nakapasa, congratulations

  20. hoooy EUFRECINA PANGANIBAN! kung totoo mang pumasa ka, i post mo yung website kung saan makikita yung result. Wag yung ikaw lang may alam! Selfish mo teh?! bakit? kung ikaw lang makakaalam na pumasa ka feeling mo ikaw ang maging Principal sa lahat ng schools sa Pilipinas?? BAKA GUSTO MO PUMALIT KAY SEC. LUISTRO? That’s UNPROFESSIONAL OF YOU! YOU DON’T DO THAT TO US!!!

    • Seriously, are you one of this batch’s examinees, aiming to be a school principal? Or just a bitter net troll? I frankly don’t understand why you should call Ms Eufrocina Panganiban unprofessional and selfish just because she said she passed way ahead of time among the rest. Neither does it mean that she’s replacing the Secretary because she didn’t tell from which site she had seen her name as one of the passers. She did, 94.74.

      It’s just as well that the passing rate is 90 and above. Nobody wants a principal who speaks or acts or writes like a “kanto girl / boy tambay”.

  21. Lord i trust in you, pls. grant my fervent prayers to pass my NQESH and to all my friends too, Holy spirit thank you for everything , for the guidance and wisdom you have bestowed to us during our exam. Thank you Lord amen.

    • same wishes i trust GOD i know He is merciful for those who work hard in his/her duties an obligation as school head.GOD pls…have mercy on us.

  22. Elmer M. Paule of AE$ Division of Pampanga….God’s will I know I can make it this….Congratz…to all..Examinees from Pampanga…

  23. i always ask and pray to the Lord that, hopefully im one of the lucky passers of this year’s NQESH 2013. This is for you Daddy!

  24. good day! hopefully, your good office could be able to release the 2013 nqesh results tomorrow afternoon, march 25, 2013 after it was being signed by the DepEd Secretary! thanks.

  25. The National Qualifying Examination for School Heads (NQESH) was done last January 20, 2013. The results of the NQESH January 2013 will soon be posted.
