  1. Good day.
    I have send my requirements thru LBC last November 7,2019. Up to now I have not received my test permit.
    My reference number is 2020292708. Thank you.

  2. I just want to know the upcoming schedule for senior high school sy 2019-2020.
    ust main and provincial schedule of application. thanks . pls email me

  3. When I click the “register” button, it directs me to the page where you choose what level you are applying for but there are no links in this page. I thought the application started on June 15. Did it move or what?

  4. I was done signing the pre-registration form online for USTET application (for incoming college) when I accidentally clicked a key that I don’t remember, then later on, it proceeded into the home page. The thing is, I wasn’t able to get my reference no. even though I am trying to retrieve it back. When I sign up again for another pre-registration form (so I could get my reference no.), it is being directed again into the home page. How is that po? Please answer, I am having a panic right now because of this 🙁

  5. please ignore my fist email.

      The entrance test schedule has already ended unfortunately. Better call UST if they still give special exam schedules.

      1. Ben voilà : 150 000 € pour aider le financement de la campagne, et quand le candidat accède au pouvoir, il vote un abattement fiscal qui rapporte 30 000 000 € à la dame (aux frais du contribuable, cette fois).Une affaire qui prend de plus en plus des airs de co0ntpuior&#823r; Ça sent pas bon pour le pouvoir en place !

  12. Good day! My nephew mentioned to me that she desires to transfer in your school. She is now enrolled Grade 10 at Marcelo H. del Pilar High School in Malolos Bulacan. I visited your internet site today and found out that Senior High School entrance test application ended last November 18, 2016. May i know if there’s a chance to have another testing schedule for Senior high school for SY 2017-2018?
    Eager to hear from you Sir/Mam.

      Hi there! UP does not offer senior high transfer. The UPCAT is for those who are in Grade 12 going into college.

    1. Post

      Nope, we do not accept vouchers from the government. The vouchers can only be used for schools with senior high schools.

  22. My daughter passed the examination and qualified. But I missed the schedule of payment for the reservation. I tried so hard to ask again for a reconsideration for her application and I submitted 2 letters and email begging to consider my request of approval to pay my reservation fee or rather pay in full tuition fee. But the door for them is still closed. My daughter never gave up on me. Until now she still hoping that a chance for her will be given. Senior High School applicant for 2016- please a reconsideration for us.

  23. Am i still able to have an entrance exam for grade 11? I didn’t got the chance to take an exam to one of your scheds bc my mom told me that i should just go to my old school again, then now, she wants me to go to UST. Can i still have an late examination? Thabk you god bless us

  24. The tuition fee po the whole year si 104,000 according sa orientation sa ust. So bale may 2 sem so mahahati po siya sa 2 so magihing 52k po 5 months pero mababawas po ang esc tuition. God bless us all po

  25. my daughter planning to take entrance exam in UST for senior high school for SY 2017-2018, Are you accepting senior high school from other school?

  26. Good morning… Can I ask the process of getting ESC tuition assistance.. I hope UST will be the one to process like in other senior high school. I heard its an P18 th subsidy, just dont know if its per year or per sem

  27. Excuse me. Is there any scholarship for those who passed specifically the First and Second honors?

  28. Hi guys.For those asking about the estimated tuition fee for the upcoming senior high schoolers,It’s around 50-55k per sem so for a year 100k + yung tuition fee.This is based on the statement from admission office 🙂 Sana nakatulong ako masagot yung ibang questions.Good day!

      1. Same here.Walang nag pa-pop up na notification regarding my reservation status given na March 18 ako nagbayad for my reservation fee 🙁

          1. What kind of camera did you get, Susanne? I’m dreaming of a new camera with a longer zoom, and better macro. My current camera tends to bulge out my quilts in the middle… not sure what this is called technically… and it’s driving me batty. I’m looking at the Canon Powershot SX10 IS, hoping the price will fall for the holidays.

      1. Runo, thank you for sharing your wonderful patterns with those of us who aren't as creative as you. They are so great. I made one of your small cats and two dolphins, one out of felt and one out of fleece. I love them both. I am giving them to my niece who wanted a stuffed dolphin for her birthday. Thank you thank you.

      2. I totally overdo it with the surf taco whenever I am home. BTW, I am hoping to try to make two of the recipes you posted this week. The stuffed portobello mushroom and the caprese spaghetti squash. They look amazing!

    1. What i do not understood is actually how you’re not really much more neatly-favored than you might be right now. You’re so intelligent. You realize thus significantly when it comes to this topic, produced me in my view consider it from so many varied angles. Its like men and women aren’t fascinated except it is something to do with Girl gaga! Your own stuffs excellent. All the time care for it up!

  30. What if I am an ESC scholar? And that I’ve applied for the voucher? Am I going to have a discount?

  34. Grade 11 applicant here. I am now filling up the UST Application Form for Grade 11 and Grade 12 Admission but my problem is, our school, Sapang Palay National High School isn’t stated in your set of schools in Region 3, Bulacan, San Jose del Monte City. So, I couldn’t even finish my form because of that situation. Will you help me? I’ve tried to call to your office but the servers is out of coverage. Will you fix it ayt? Thank you.
