Updating for the results....


In the October 2015 exam, 2,195 out of more than 19,000 takers passed the Principals' Test. Results were released online in less than 3 months after the exam.

Erwin John Santos (Region 3) and Garry Vacunawa (Region 8) garnered 186 points or 93% overall rating to ace the test.

Sharon Angupa from Cordillera Administrative Region (CAR) ranked second with 185 points or 92.5% rating.


The administration of the test is DepEd's mechanism to select school heads in the public education sector - a qualifying process for interested applicants to Principal I positions. It is being implemented in coordination with the Schools Divisions Offices (DOs) through the Regional Offices (ROs).

Examination is originally scheduled on November 6, 2016 but was rescheduled to December 18, 2016 and later to April 2017 due to administrative constraints in the procurement of test materials and other issues.
