How to Pass the Licensure Exam for Teachers (LET)?

Updated on July 19, 2017
  1. 1. Confidence is the key.

Confidence is very much needed in taking the exam. The extremes, being overconfident or lack of confidence aren’t good. Why you should be confident in taking the exam? Confident examinees may not know the best answers on all of the items, but at least they have the composure during the exam. If you’re relaxed, then you can focus on the questions and analyze it properly.

  1. 2. Read, read and read.

Relying too much on your stock knowledge possibly will lead you to failure. There are fields that are constantly budding, like science and it is a great advantage if you know the updates. A wide reader has a greater chance of passing the exam. Just be sure that the reading materials are up-to-date and within the scope of the coverage of the exam.

  1. 3. Avoid Erasures.

Remember that the paper you’re using during the exam is sensitive. There are tales that the machine will reject the paper once it has tears and if two answers were shaded on one item or exerted too much force in shading your answer. Erasures are allowed, but it should be done in a careful manner to avoid tears. If you’re uncertain of your answer, might as well leave it blank for the meantime or shade it very lightly.

  1. 4. Comprehend, analyze and rationalize.

Questions are a bit tricky sometimes, it is important that the examinee has the ability to comprehend, analyze and rationalize the items.

  1. 5. The Power of C.

If in case you encountered a difficult question and it had just become a guessing game because you don’t know the answer, use the power of C. There are no existing studies why an examinee will choose the letter C among the options. But who knows, C might be really the answer.

  1. 6. Don’t linger on the complex items.

Time is limited. Start answering the simple questions and once you’re done, you may get back the complex ones.

  1. 7. Use Mnemonics.

Mnemonics are memory devices that help learners recall larger pieces of information, especially in the form of lists like characteristics, steps, stages, parts, phases, etc. We knew back in 1967 from a study by Gerald R. Miller that mnemonics increased recall. He found that students who regularly used mnemonic devices increased test scores up to 77%.(

The most dreadful day of a student’s life is taking the licensure examination. It is dreadful that few will not even dare to take the exam. But as what Neitzsche goes, “What doesn’t kill you will make you stronger. Licensure examination is considered as a passport in landing a good-paying job.

There are students who are confident enough in taking the exam, passed it without even enrolling at Review Centre. Others made it through diligently studying all the materials given by the Review Centre. For months of reviewing, there is likelihood that one will fail the exam. That is the most disheartening part of the examinee, failing the exam despite of all the efforts exerted.

There are a lot of factors causing the student to fail the exam. It could be that the student is not yet ready in taking the exam, lacked comprehension skills, or simply is not lucky. If luck is on your side, the items you’ve reviewed will come out.

Why hang on the things that will not help you in making the exam and bring the bacon? The focus should be shifted to: passing the exam.

What are the essential attributes and techniques in order to make it?
