This study determined the mastery levels in Mathematics of randomly selected 515 Grade VI pupils of public and private elementary schools in Nueva Ecija. The mastery levels were classified as mastery (75% to 100%), near mastery (50% to 74%) and low mastery (below 50%). The main source of data is a researchers-made test called the Mathematics Achievement Test (MAT). The MAT was found reliable using the Kuder-Richardson formula 20, with a reliability coefficient of 0.97. The MAT was composed of 40 items and each problem was assigned one point. The study revealed that the Grade VI pupils nearly mastered Graphs, Maps and Scale Drawings while they had poor mastery of whole numbers. They have low mastery of place value, scientific notations and different types of numbers. Furthermore, public school pupils have better mastery levels in the MAT than private school pupils. Lastly, this study offers pedagogical implications for supplementary research along this line.
