Dear Sir/Madam:
We are pleased to let you know that the Japan Global Mathematics Association has given us
access to their mathematics certification program. In this connection, we have also opened this
opportunity to allow schools to certify their teachers at a certain level of mathematics proficiency.
Part of our global vision in APSA is to have teachers in schools have a mathematics certification
at a proficiency level that is recognized internationally.
The levels of proficiency range from Level 8, which is the 1st step level and goes up to Level 1,
the highest level which is equivalent to doctoral or graduate level in Mathematics proficiency.
The test usually takes 2 hours to finish and is made up of 2 parts. Part 1 is the calculation
portion and Part 2 is the application portion. Both tests should be taken in one sitting, although a
short break is given between the 1st and 2nd portion of the test.
The test is scheduled on November 15, 2014 at JSU- AMOSUP Mariners’ Home Annex, 1970
Pilar Hidalgo Lim St., Malate, Manila.
We will need the names of the teachers who will take the test and the level they will take. The
fee for the Sugaku test is Php 300.00 from level 3 to level 8, Php 400.00 level Pre-2 to level 2
and Php 500.00 from Pre 1 to level 1.
Only those on the list and have paid on or before the deadline will be able to take the test.
Their names will be submitted to the head office in Japan and the test booklets will then be
prepared and subsequently, the certificates, upon passing the test, will also come from Japan.
Please fax or e-mail the scanned copy of your deposit slip to acknowledge payment and
