The Problem: Rationale and Background
Nowadays the number of school population is usually rising because of the rapid increase of students in our country. The Philippines is one of the countries with a huge population of students. Even the number of foreign students who have chosen to study here is extremely increasing, which leads to the need of computerization processes in schools, primarily with Entrance Examination system.
Entrance Examination system is very much needed in schools to satisfy scholastic needs of the students and make the school personnel’s work easier and faster in terms of filling the documents and assuring their security.

3. The school will provide user authentication keys in order for the students to take the entrance exams.
Scope and Limitation
The scope of proposed Entrance Examination System for the school are the following: * Quick and retrieval of raw score
* Computation of raw score
* Each Computer will be networked to each other
* Generates print-out
* Raw Score
* Passed or not Passed
The School and its various transactions will not be included. Also the following: * The proposed system will only be used in schools.
* Income/Expenses of School will not be part of the proposed system. * Limited to multiple device item.
* The System has no capability to show the examiners mistakes and correct answer after the exam.
