Prospective takers of the University of the Philippines College Admission Test (UPCAT) this August, take note! The forms you need to fill out and submit by June are now available for download in the university’s website. You can also download them by clicking the links below. This year’s UPCAT will be on August 3 and 4.
You will need Adobe Acrobat Reader to download the files. The forms must be printed on a long bond paper. Form 1 is your personal data sheet while form 2 should contain your high school records. The second form should be accomplished by your school registrar and signed by the principal. Keep in mind the following deadlines:
14 June 2013 - Deadline for Metro Manila Schools
21 June 2013 - Deadline for Non-Metro Manila Schools
According to the UPCAT web page, late applications may be accepted but additional fees may be charged.Contrary to rumors, there’s actually no minimum grade required for UPCAT takers. My research teacher in fourth year was obviously misinformed (LOL). Another thing: you can only take the UPCAT once. If you fail, you cannot retake it, but you can always try to shift. ;)
