Overview of UPCAT Review Centers

There are some students who feel that they need to attend a review center in order to better prepare for the UPCAT.  Interestingly, these centers serve as confidence boosters as well as places of study.

As with all things in life, there are tradeoffs involved.  Let’s take a closer look at what you can expect from these UPCAT review centers.

The Low Down

One thing’s for sure:  there’s no dearth of review centers.  You’ll find them all around the metro and beyond, from the area along Katipunan Avenue en route to U.P., to provincial areas like Laguna and Bulacan.

Regardless of which center you attend, expect drills, discussions, evaluations and mock exams on the UPCAT topics—perhaps even a U.P. tour in certain cases.

Individual Differences

Every review center is unique in the way it presents the review process.  Some centers will give you four-hour sessions, while others will grant you five hour sessions instead.  You may also want to look for bonuses—some centers will offer online reviews in addition to the ones held in person.

Prices between the review centers vary depending on a lot of factors:  the number of hours and sessions you want, the location of the center etc.  The range would anywhere from close to a thousand pesos to the mid to upper four-digit range (P6,000- P10,000).  The good news is that you can choose from a variety of packages best suited to your time and budget.

Finally, know this:  these centers, while helpful, are not absolutely critical in passing the UPCAT.  A lot of factors are involved in succeeding, only one of which is having a good review center.  I’ll explain more about those factors in another article.
