UPCAT 2016 Schedule Released

The University of the Philippines has released the schedule of the UP College Admission Test (UPCAT) this 2016. The entrance test is scheduled on September 18, 2016, according to the UPCAT official website. The scheduled entrance exam is for the Academic Year 2017-2018.

The UPCAT is scheduled on September 18, 2016.

The UPCAT is for students who are graduates of secondary school OR senior high school students expecting to graduate in 2017. Grade 10 students are not allowed to take the UPCAT yet since UP does not accept senior high school applications.

Online applications for UPCAT 2016 will start in July 18, 2016

Online UPCAT Review

Aside from the online application, UP is also offering a free online UPCAT review, a service for students who applied to take the test. They started the service last year to help applicants prepare for their test (Review Masters has a free online review since 2009 which you can access here).

UPCAT Coverage

The UPCAT has 4 subtests: Language Proficiency (English and Filipino), Reading Comprehension (English and Filipino), Science and Mathematics. 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.

      1. Wow! Thanks for listening when God speaks. Your writing (God given and Holy Spirit delivered) speaks to so many he&a#srt8230; I feel like when HIS love is overflowing in me, it spills all over the place and that’s when people really listen! Not when my words are just my words… It seems that words are not enough. It’s the HOLY SPIRIT not only speaking but filling the air with HIS sweet fragrance. Allow HIM to fill you and HE will take care of the rest… Living water quenches thirsty hearts!

  15. Hi! I’m still in Grade 11 but I want to know when will be the UPCAT for 2018-2019.
    Moreover, can I get an automatic scholarship if ever I will graduate with honors after my senior high school?
    Lastly, how will the subjects be on college? Will our previous subjects in senior high school be still there? (e.g. Oral Communication was already our subject in our Grade 11, am I still encountering this subject?) I would want to pursue a course related to Accountancy.

    1. Post

      The exam is scheduled every September. You must take the UPCAT on the month of September of your Grade 12. Be sure to prepare for the test during summer and submit the application around July- August.
      With regards to the subjects, we’re still not quite sure. There will be subjects, however, that you will still encounter that is the same in your senior high but in a more advanced level.

Gusto ko po kasi talagang makapag-aral sa UP with the course of Accountancy. Though start na po ng classes namin this August 1 sa FEU, may chance po bang makapag transfer ako if napasa ko po ang UPCAT sa pasukan sa August 2017?

      You can take the UPCAT only once. If you want to transfer to UP, you may apply for validation. However, UP has a grade requirement if you want to transfer. As far as we know, your grades in your first year college should be 2.0 or better (or its equivalent)

  20. Pwede po bang mag UPCAT if 1st year college na ako sa FEU kasi gusto kong mag transfer sa UP kahit balik ulit 1st year?

    1. Post

      Yes you may transfer to UP but not through the UPCAT. There’s a different application process for transfer students who have already taken college units in other schools.

      UP has senior high but it is only available to their UPIS students. Unlike Ateneo, UST and other colleges, UP does not have a standalone senior high.

  21. Hello po!papano pong maka download ng application form online,para sa UPCAT?available na po ba?at saan po ang exam?nasa UAE po kami.ilang months na po kaming nag hahanap ng mapapag tanungan about this..Salamat po

      You may visit the official UPCAT website at https://upcatonline.up.edu.ph. Applications are accomplished online first then downloaded for printing. It’s a new system implemented by UP (although you may still do the manual method by getting a form from their office).
