UPCAT Test Permit Status and Stats

As the UPCAT day is fast approaching, the University of the Philippines has released the status of test permits. Also, the university has also announced some relevant statictics such as the number of issued test permits and the number of expected test takers.

A post at the Office of Admission in UP Diliman indicated the following data:

Expected Number of Examinees
Number of Issued Test Permits

Here’s an image of the announcement:

Based on these numbers, the examinees for this year is significantly lower than the number of test takers prior to 2015, which range from 60,000 to 80,000 students. This is due the implementation of the K to 12 program by the government.

The number of examinees is expected to increase again next year, 2017, for UPCAT 2018.

To all the test takers… good luck and God bless!

      The best time to start their preparation, in my opinion, is during their Grade 11. Usually, we have the classroom review session in May in preparation for the exam on September.

      Ang application naman po ay tuwing July.
