Abstract
It has been a fact that all who seek to pursue teaching as a career need to pass the Licensure Examination for Teachers (LET), hence, the Professional Regulation Commission (PRC) implemented the R.A. 7836 otherwise known as Philippine Teachers Professionalization Act. It states that no person shall practice the teaching profession in the Philippines without having a valid professional license from the Commission. In the Teacher Education Program, passing the LET is one measure of quality education. Thus, this study determined the correlation between the academic and LET performances of Sorsogon State College Bulan Campus (SSCBC) BSED Mathematics and English graduates from 2013 to 2015 along general education subjects, professional education subjects, and major subjects. The significant relationship between the academic and LET performances was also looked into. This study utilized descriptive correlation method. The data gathered were treated statistically using Pearson-product moment correlation. The findings showed that the BSED graduate’s exhibited high academic performance and most of the examinees passed the LET in all the components. It also showed that the academic performance is significantly related to the LET performance. The results also revealed that academic performance is a determinant in passing the LET. Therefore, the Institution could predict that the better the academic performance of students, the greater the possibility to pass the LET, the poorer the academic performance of students , the lower the possibility to pass the LET, therefore the Institution could also give possible measures to improve the SSCBC BSED graduates’ rating in the LET.
