Gov. Salceda boosts Albay’s NAT readiness

Fourth year students today in the Philippines will take the National Achievement Test (NAT), the annual  standardized examination that determines their achievement level in five key curricular subjects. Held at the end of every school year, the NAT has become a tool for assessing the academic performance of schools and divisions.

Albay students, however, may have an edge over many as their provincial government has made it one of its priorities to implement measures that would improve their academic performance.

Under the leadership of Governor Joey Salceda, Albay’s performance in the exams has achieved unprecedented successes.
From the Albay division being ranked 177th out of 183 in 2007, the division rose to rank 19 in 2011, and down to 29 in 2012.

The impressive performance is due to several initiatives from the provincial government to transform its 2007 failure into a success.

This year, he once again reminded students to prepare for the NAT, as early as last month.

Salceda hopes that this year, Albay will make it to the top 20 best-performing schools, and top 10 by 2016.
