Abstract

Preparation to pass the licensure examination is vital at the very first stage of college life. This study aimed to determine the freshmen students’ intrinsic and extrinsic   factors as success predictors for their licensure examination. The descriptive- correlation method was employed to determine the intrinsic and extrinsic motivation and the significant differences between the respondents’ motivation among colleges and between the factors. One hundred ninety-four (194)  students were utilized as respondents of this study. FGD with five (5) deans from different colleges   were employed for validation and intervention. Results revealed that between the factors, intrinsic is the highest motivating factor. Respondents believe that  to pass the board exam,   their effort to develop their own skills will bring them success. They also believe that providing material things and other support for their family as an external motivation will just follow. The test on significant difference revealed that students’ perception of motivation from among colleges have no significant difference. However, between the factors, a significant difference was noted. Activities  on study habits and skills  formation  of students  will boost intrinsic  motivation  and  family-centered  activities  were  seen  as  an  effective  intervention program.
