UPCAT 2015 Schedule Released (for AY 2016-2017)

by Admin |

The University of the Philippines has released the schedule of the UP College Admission Test (UPCAT) this 2015. The entrance test is scheduled on August 30, 2015, according to the UPCAT General Information bulletin of the UPCAT official website. The scheduled entrance exam is for the Academic Year 2016-2017.

The UPCAT is scheduled on August 30, 2015.

According to the website, applications for UPCAT 2015 will start in July. In the previous years, applications were only done through physical and courier/mail submissions. Now, applications can be accomplished online which will enable students faster application processing.

Aside from the online application, UP mentioned that they will include a link to the free Online UPCAT Reviewer, a service for students which they announced early this year (Review Masters has a free online review since 2009 which you can access here).

UP also released the coverage of the UPCAT. The test will consist of 4 subtests: Language Proficiency (English and Filipino), Science, Math and Reading Comprehension (English and Filipino). In the previous exams, the Filipino part of the two subtests were not formally announced by UP. This year however, they made a very clear pronouncement about the exam’s coverage.

The UPCAT general information, however, did not include a provision of who can take the test. We all know that this year is the transition period for the implementation of the K to 12 curriculum and students are still wondering if Grade 10 students can take the test. As of this moment, we are yet to hear the official announcement of UP about this matter.

  6. My daughter is now grade 9 could she take the exam for grade 10.,and what requirements needed

  7. Hi. I am a grade 11 (sy 2016-2017) student right now if I want to take UPCAT after my grade 12 (2017-2018) what year would I take it? Thank you.

  8. Hi po. I’m an Alternative Learning System passer and graduate for this year 2016. I’m eligible to take the UPCAT right? Because i just sent my Form 1(online) and now on the process of filling up my Form 2. But the problem is, it is to be filled by the principal or school head and fill in some high school details and i want to know if i could just ask my ALS teacher or the head of our ALS center to fill up the form. Also can i skip the filling in the grades section of Form 2 and just give a photocopy of my Certificate of Rating(COR) which is equivalent to the Form 138 (Report Card) of the formal school system? I also want to know how much is the late fees for late filed applications because its almost deadline and i think i would be able to send it only after the given date. I would pretty much appreciate it if you would reply ASAP because i would really like you guys to receive my application as soon as possible. Thank you po.

  9. good day i am a grade nine student i’ll be a grade 10 student next year am i allowed to take the upcat exam next year when is it ?

  11. Good Day! I’m an incoming grade 11 student po for school year 2017-2018, I want to know po: is UPIS is accepting transferees for the aforementioned school year? If yes, kailan po ang admission test? Thank you po!

  12. Hi po, mag i-inquire po sana ako kung pwede pa pong magtake ng exam sa UPCAT ? for grade 11 students, ang sabi po kase sa mga humor bawal daw po kapag hindi galing sa UP H.S. Thkyou 🙂

    1. Post

      The UPCAT is for college admission. It is not for admission for senior high.

      Hope this helps! 🙂

  13. Hi Good Day! I am an Alternative Learning System Passer 2016. Our Certificate indicates that all ALSpassers are qualified for tertiary level. Hindi po ako nakapag take ng UPCAT last year kasi wala pa po akong maipakitang certificate. Noong June 29 2016 lang po lumabas yung ALS Result. Ang ibig sabihin po ba ay makakahinto po ako ng isang taon para mag take ng UPCATE this year at maghihintay sa SY2017-2018? Sana ay mabasa nyo po ito at masagot po ang mga tanong ko. Thank you and Godbless!

      Hi Jhon! First of all, you can’t take the UPCAT just yet. You have to be an incoming Grade 12 student to take it. The requirements are posted on this page so just read through it.

    1. Post

      Hi Ken! Walang school na tinatanggihan ang UP. As long as you pass the exam and make it to the cut, you are in.

  18. Hi! So you’re saying that UP is not open for Completers of junior high (grade 10)? We can’t take the UPCAT not unless we complete grade 11 and 12? Thankyou

    1. Post

      Yes. Only those going to college (already finished or currently in Grade 12) can take the UPCAT.

  19. I’m now going to grade 12 . When is your entrance exam for next year going to college?

      The UPCAT is administered every August of the year. You must be in Grade 12 by that time (or you have already graduated from high school but have not yet studied in any college) to be allowed to take the test.

  20. Post

    UP does not accept applicants for Grade 11 and 12. You should be a graduating student (in Grade 12) before you can take the UPCAT.

  21. Hello po Sir/Ma’am Admin, and I’ll be in grade 11 this coming school year 2017-2018. I really really like to be enrolled in UP. I would like to ask you in advance that when is the schedule exam next year.
    If they’re not really going to accept transferred for grade 11 and 12. Then can I take an entrance exam for grade 10.

  22. Can I take UPCAT next week? What day po Sir Admin, I would like to finish K-12, can I Sir/Ma’am? I’m want to take UPCUT right now until next week, I wait your answer Sir/Ma’am, thank you and gobless

    1. Post

      The UPCAT is scheduled only once a year. It is usually held in August. So no, you cannot take the UPCAT next week.

  23. Hi! seems all parents are confused just like me. My Twins will be Grade 11 this year can they take the UPCAT? our schools here in Isabela are not quite ready for the K-12. school shall start in the next months. please enlighten us parents. thanks! 🙂

    1. Post

      Hello po! Only those who will be graduating from high school (that would be finishing Grade 12 or equivalent) are allowed to take the UPCAT.

      If the current school of your child does not have Senior High, then you have to find a school that offers one.

  24. My 15 year old son attended ordinary schooling only till grade 3 due to an Asperger syndrome which makes him an anti-social person and his sense of maturity is not that fast compared to a normal person, a child psychologist suggested a close parental supervision since he’s un capable of normal social contact which somehow sends him to trouble. He was accelerated several times during elementary and soon became very bored with normal schooling. He’s intellectually gifted and currently has to go to Alternative Learning School just to catch up with his missed school levels. I am very positive that he can make it to UP. My question is, will he be eligible to enroll to this school given the fact? He thinks differently and would assume all kids he’s age has the same level of intelligence. How do I go about enrolling him to this school. Thank you.

    1. Post

      As long as he is a certified graduate of the K-12 program, or he has passes the eligibility test by DepEd, he may take the UPCAT. If he passes the test, then he can enter UP.

  25. I have the same question as with the incoming grade 11…and admins reply is quite vague so i made further research so here is the answer…Please be informed that UPIS will start its Senior High School (Grade 11) next Academic Year 2016-2017 only with our current Grade 10 students. We will not be accepting transferees from other schools. As a laboratory school of the U.P. College of Education, UPIS has limited number of students per level due to the Commission on Higher Education’s directive which limits the Laboratory School’s admission.

    1. tama po… UP will not accept Grade 11 transferees .. beside UPCAT is for incoming College students and not for Grade 10 which is still a High-School.. kaya walang UPCAT for incoming senior High School or yung mga Grade 10 now…

    2. Post

      UP only accepts incoming college students only. They don’t accept incoming Grade 11 students.

    1. Good Day Chelley,

      UP, through its laboratory High Schools, offers grade 11 and 12. Unfortunately, they are not accepting new senior high school students. An entrance exam is conducted before being admitted to grade 7 much like most science high schools in the country.

    1. Good Day Donnabelle,

      Just a few clarifications. A student who graduated in 2015 should have started college last August 2015. There are a few though who opt to take a gap year and resume study the following year (i.e. 2016-17) This is allowed in UP for as long as the student has not previously taken the UPCAT nor have taken any college courses in a different University.

      However, for the 2nd part of your question. Can they take the UPCAT for school year 2016-17? The answer is NO because the UPCAT for the incoming school year 2016-17 has already been concluded and the results are already out. The incoming UPCAT this August is for the School Year 2017-18

    1. Post

      UP has a K-12 program under the UP Integrated School. However, they do not accept incoming Grade 11.
      If you are already in Grade 11, you need to be in Grade 12 before you can take the UPCAT (that would be in August this year).

  28. Can I take UPCAT review even if I’m a grade 9 student? (somehow, like a preparation when I reach grade 10)
    I really want to pass UP so bad.

  29. For info po. Kailangan po graduate ng grade 12 makaka take ng upcat ang pagkaka alam ko. May mga schools kasi na dati pa up to grade 12 like mga international schools. Kaya may advantage mga private school na dati pang may k12. Sa public sure na walang makaka take ng upcat for 2 year. Yan ang pagkaka alam ko

  30. Hi,

    I already have a college degree but I’m planning to take another one. Am I allowed to take the UPCAT and when can I take, if it is possible?

      Hi Ritzel! The UPCAT is administered only once a year. It is given every August. Since your child is in Grade 10, he cannot yet take the UPCAT. Only those who are incoming college can take it.

  31. Hello po, meron pa po bang ibang sched ng ng UPCAT po? Grade 10 po anak ko ngayon at interesado cya na mag take ng exam, pls. advice po.Thanks

      Hi Janette! The UPCAT is administered only once a year. It is given every August. Since your child is in Grade 10, he cannot yet take the UPCAT. Only those who are incoming college can take it.

  32. Ask ko lang po kung kailangan pang mag take ng UPCAT yung mga nasa top 10? Saka may senior high school po ba sa UP? Paano mo mag a-apply as scholar ng bayan? Please reply at my email. Thank you.

    1. Post

      Top 10 students have the option to enter UP without the UPCAT. However, UP suggests that the top 10 also takes the UPCAT to be assured of their slots. Those in the top 10 who would like to enter UP will still be screened by UP so it’s not an assurance that the top 10 will be admitted.

      With regards to K to 12, UP does not have a senior high.

  33. My son is 9th grader today. When is the next schedule of UPCAT for next school year 2016-2017? (he will be 10th grader by that time). Thanks and God bless!

    2. Thanks so much pertaining to giving me an update on this matter on your website. Please realise that if a fresh post becomes available or in the event that any changes occur on the current write-up, I would be interested in reading a lot more and focusing on how to make good use of those approaches you write about. Thanks for your time and consideration of other individuals by making your blog available.

    3. Hey Anne-Camille! Mackenzie and I will be in MH Aug 18-Aug 25. I was wondering if you have a time available to do a photo shoot with her. She needs updated pictures. let me know! I am pretty free that entire week. Morgan

    4. My daughter is still in her crib. She’s 2 1/2, but has never tried to climb out so I’m leaving her in there as long as she wants to stay. I’m terrified of her wandering around the house at night. Could this work with me still having to go put her in her bed? Most nights, bedtime isn’t too bad. We are on a set schedule that we rarely deviate from. But other nights isn’t a nightmare that ends with her on the floor pitching a fit because she doesn’t want to go to bed. This is an interesting concept that I’m willing to try.

    5. . I didn’t say everything has to have message. What I did say is that if everything an author writes lacks message, then there won’t be any eternal value. I’m all for fun, but life is too short only to be about having fun and entertainment. God has given us a commission, and it’s the meaning God gives us to communicate that will have eternal value. Thanks for writing.

  51. Hi UP,

    Just called earlier and I am really very surprised that until now, the forms for AY2016-17 are still not available. You have set the deadline of July 22 , is this going to be adjusted then? Even if the application is online, we still have to pay the fee at the bank and request school records. Between now and July 22, there are only 7 working days, the 17th being a long weekend. Please consider our concerns. Thank you.

  52. I Admin,

  77. My son is now at Grade 10, and I want him to take UPCAT but according to K-12, he needs to
    Finish grade 11 and 12 before taking college exams. I’m confused, why do they have the sched for UPCAT
    If the college school year will be on 2018 . There will be no first year college next year.
    Kindly clarify . Thanks…

  78. Can my daughter take the exam? She is in grade 10 in a regional science high school. Thanks.

      Hi yvonne! Those who have already taken units in college are not allowed to take the UPCAT. However, he can try another admission process.

      This is lifted from the official UPCAT website:
      “SECOND : If no UP campus can accommodate you, you can enroll in a college or university other than UP. After earning 33 academic units with a weighted average of 2.00 or better on the UP marking system, you can apply for transfer to a UP campus. Again, each campus has its own rules on transfer and accepts only a limited number of transfer students. Information regarding transfer to UP may be obtained from the Office of the University Registrar of the respective UP campuses.”

  80. My son will be in grade 11 this coming schoolyear. Will he qualify to take the UPCAT? Or is UP will accept k11 applicants.. Thanks. More power..

      No final word yet from UP po. The only sure test takers as of now are those who will be graduating this school year. This transition period is really confusing, even for UP. DepEd should have not allowed school to recalibrate.

      2. When can we know if incoming Grade 11 can take the UPCAT exam? Do you have any idea?
        As of now, we parents are already checking for schools that our children can enroll for the next school year. Because not all schools or the school that they are enrolled right now has the course that they want to take up in college.

      3. Good day! Is UP have a senior high already? If yes, are we going to take upcat test also?
        I have another problem, If UP have a senior high already, are the transferes from public school are welcome?
