The quality of education offered by any institution is often determined by the performance of graduates it produces. This study was conducted to determine the predictors of performance in the Licensure Examination for Teachers (LET) as the bases for a contextualized intervention program. A total of 117 graduates from batch 2016 to 2019 of Bachelor of Secondary Education graduates of Calabanga Community College were the respondents of this study. This study employed a descriptive-correlational research design utilizing a survey questionnaire and documentary analysis for data gathering. Data were treated using descriptive statistics, chi-square test of independence, and Pearson’s Product Moment of Correlation. The profile showed that 70% of the respondents were in the 19 to 25 age bracket, three-fourths were female, and almost all were single. The majority of respondents had a monthly income of 5,000 to 10,000 pesos. On average, their grade performance in high school was 85%, and in the college entrance examination, the most significant percentage got 86-90%. As to their College GWA, generally, their grades ranged between 1.51 and 2.0. The BSEd graduates’ General Education performance consistently recorded the highest means of 82.30, 80.53, 81.08, and 82.21, respectively, from 2016-2019. On the other hand, their performance in major courses was better than in their professional education courses in the two successive periods, 2016 and 2017, except in the 2018 and 2019 examinations. Their LET performance was highly affected by teacher factors (3.61) and least affected by the family factor (2.57). Their performance along specialization and professional education is significantly associated with their college academic performance, whereas their performance in General Education, with their high school academic performance. Among the factors considered, the general and professional education performance was positively and significantly predicted by personal factors.
