The request was made and it was granted by the BPSU president, Dr. Magpantay. A Memorandum of Agreement was formulated through the able assistance of Dr. Emmanuel C. Macaraeg of the Planning Department and at the same time the Board Secretary of Regents.

There were 37 pupils who came with their parents/guardian were initially oriented by the examiner regarding how the test will be given and the type of test to be given to their children. Parents were advised to stay at a place so that their childrens attention span will not be divided, hence, they could focus effectively on their tasks. The parents cooperated well, and no one from them ever peeped in the window and the door of the examination room. Likewise, same activities happened during the afternoon session, where the second batch had their first four subtests too. There were more examinees in the afternoon session to complete the 80 applicants/examinees, however, only a total of 79 examinees took the test during the first day.

The first four subtests are the following, namely: Vocabulary, Identifying letters, Visual Discrimination, and Auditory Discrimination.
The first day of examination was found to be successful as the reality testing was achieved. It was observed that, the second batch had a faster rate of performance than the first batch.
As instructed, examinees who are supposed to take the remaining subtests in the morning came and took the said subtests. These are: Comprehension and Interpretation, Number Knowledge, Handwriting Ability and Developmental Spelling Ability. The batch who took the test in the morning of the first day was assigned to take the test during the afternoon of the second day and vice versa. Only one examinee did not come, hence, only a total of 78 pupils/examinees successfully took the test completely.
Before the scoring of the test booklets of the examinees, proctors were first oriented on how they will score the test. On the same afternoon, scoring and interpretation were conducted. The following day, the examinees are ranked through their scores and results were encoded at the BPSU and the overall result was submitted to the Principal of the Dinalupihan Elementary School.
