The LET or the so called Licensure Examination for Teachers is the national qualifying examination for Professional Teachers in the Philippines, as mandated by Republic Act No. 7836, an act to strengthen the regulation and supervision of the practice of teaching in the Philippines and prescribing a Licensure examination for teachers and for other purposes, otherwise known as the Philippine Teachers Professionalization Act of 1994.

This examination is held two times every year, one in April and another in September. The examination for applicants for teaching in the Elementary level consists of two (2) parts; General Education and Professional education. The examination for those applicants teaching Secondary level consists of three (3) parts: one for General Education, another for Professional Education, and a third one for Field of Specialization. The current L.E.T. also refers to the National Competency-Based Teaching Standards (NCBTS).

The tests in General education and Professional education for both groups of examinees, Elementary and Secondary teaching, are common. The examinees for teaching in the Secondary level take a third examination in the Field of Specialization.( This explains why, as per Civil Service Memorandum # 1005 issued on January3, 200, a LET passer in the examination for teaching Secondary level may also teach in the Elementary level.)

The LET is a 5 1/2 to a 9 hour exam for future Elementary teachers and Secondary teachers, respectively. The Gen ED. and Prof. Ed. Test last from 8:00am to 1:30pm. With NO noon break. Heavy snacks may be eaten in the examinees seat while taking the examination. The Gen. Ed. Test is supposed to be answered from 8:00 am to 1:00 Am., and the Prof. ED test from 11:00am to 1:30pm. The test in the examinees Field of Specialization is given in the afternoon, from 2:30pm to 6:00pm.

An examinees must obtain the average of 75% in the General Education and Professional Education test for examinees in the Elementary level and in General Education, Professional Education and Field of Specialization test for examines in the Secondary level. An examinees however, must have no rating of 50% or below in any of the tests.
