The purpose of this study was to determine the performance of the Guimaras State College Teacher Education A.Y. 2008-2015 graduates on the licensure examination. This study employed the analytical method of research and document analysis with secondary data extracted from the official results of the Licensure Examination for Teachers (LET) released between September 2008 and September 2015 by the Professional Regulation Commission (PRC). Utilized statistical methods included mean, frequency counts, percentage, Chi-square, and linear regression. From 2008 to 2015, there were 248 (47.3 percent) BEED test takers and 276 (57.3 percent) BSED test takers, according to the results. LET was taken by recent and seasoned BSED and BEED graduates. A significant number of first-time test-takers took and passed the LET, it was revealed. In addition, the study revealed that the number of participants was highest in 2008 and 2010. More people passed the BEED, and those who took it for the first time performed better than those who retook it. BEED graduates earned a LET score of 73.65 percent, while BSED graduates earned a score of 68.41 percent. September 2015 witnessed the highest BEED passing rate, while March 2012 saw the lowest. In September 2012, the highest percentage of BEED LET test-takers passed, whereas in March 2013, no one passed. The performance of LET test-takers varied significantly based on their degree, type of test-takers, and examination year. The result indicated that the P-value of.000 was less than the predetermined p-value of 0.05, which is significant; therefore, the null hypothesis was rejected. This merely demonstrates that the characteristics of LET candidates influence their performance. For the purpose of predicting the performance of graduates on the LET, a model or trend was developed. The anticipated 2016 institutional rating for BSED was 37.246, while that for BEED LET was 87.952.
