The University of the Philippines College Admission Test, commonly known as UPCAT, is part of the admission requirements of the University of the Philippines, administered to senior high school students both here and abroad. Yearly, tens of thousands of aspiring “Iskolar ng Bayan” flock to various testing centers nationwide to take the 2-day examination administered by the UP System.
The UPCAT AY 2013-2014 was administered last August 4 and 5 with an estimated 70,000 students took the entrance examination. The five-hour exam covered language proficiency, reading comprehension, mathematics, and science. Essay questions were also incorporated in the recent UPCAT for the first time.
The UPCAT AY 2013-2014 results will be released towards the end of February 2013 according to the official UPCAT website. However, the results of the previous academic years are usually released earlier than February. Last year, the results came out on January 18, 2012.
The list of qualifiers or passers will be posted at http://www.upcat.up.edu.ph and outside the U.P. Office of Admissions. Aside from these, a list of examinees and their corresponding qualifying status is sent to the high school principal. Finally, individual letters containing qualifying information and further instructions, if any, are sent to the individual examinees.
Apart from the list of qualifiers, UP will also release the list of U.P. Oblation Scholars, who are the top fifty qualifiers to the UPCAT. Their scholarships, should they choose to enter UP, provide them with a 100% discount on tuition fees, transportation and book allowances, and monthly stipends.
