The NAT includes multiple choice questions in analysis, vocabulary, reading comprehension, problem solving and general knowledge. It also includes composition writing and critical thinking essay portions. The NAT is given to 4th, 6th and 12th graders to determine their academic strengths and weaknesses. The NAT covers material learned over the course of several school years, but each school hosts a week-long review before the exams. The NAT has a time limit of 4 to 6 hours, depending on the grade. There are between 205 to 325 questions on the NAT. The ratings acquired by the NAT are also used to measure each school's competency and effectiveness. The Filipino Department of Education urges students not to miss school on NAT review days.
