UPCAT Results and the Next Steps


For the latest Philippine news stories and videos, visit GMANews.TV

“Give me results!”  How often have you heard that statement from some authority figure?  Thing is, the world we live in has a lot of result-oriented people demanding one thing or another from you.  Even students tend to fall into this category, especially when they’re awaiting the outcome of an entrance test.

Fortunately, the University of the Philippines had just released the results of its College Admissions Test (UPCAT) 2010 edition to hopeful applicants last Sunday, January 17.  The big question is, of course, “what now?”

What?  Where?  How?

You have two choices when it comes to viewing the results.  The first choice is to head over to the lobby of the U.P. Office of Admissions at the Diliman campus and view the results posted there.  The second (and more convenient) option is to search for your name on this website.  If that site is down, go either here or here for mirrors.

The beauty of the site is that names are organized by letter range.  Clicking on any of the links will take you to another page where you can view your (or any other applicant’s) name, student number, campus, course of choice and (sometimes) status as well—that is, pending or requirement deficiency cases.

What about those who didn’t qualify?  Don’t give up hope, friends; there are still things you can do about the situation.  Sometimes, all it takes is a simple trip to the Admissions Office to address those aforementioned deficiencies.  Other options include going for another course, another campus, or another university—at least until the one you really want becomes available and you can try again.

Everything will depend on the exact nature of your status.  For a more detailed discussion on the topic, kindly consult this website.  Feel free to ask the helpful members of the Admissions Office for more information, too (the office’s contact details are listed below).

The Waiting Game Revisited

If you’ve come across your name on the list of qualified students, then congratulations!  It’s only natural to be excited.  Unfortunately, you’ll have to hold back a little for the time being.

According to the folks over at the Admissions and Registrar’s offices, proper procedure dictates that you wait for your specific written notice to arrive.  The notice will contain all the instructions you’ll need to confirm your enrolment.

When exactly are the notices due for arrival?  The official UPCAT website estimates it at sometime around late February, but the university staff members have a different estimate:  they’ve placed it at sometime in the middle of March due to the sheer number of applicants.

And in case you’re wondering, no, the institution has no plans to post the enrolment confirmation instructions online—at least, not at the moment.

Communication Lines

Should you have anything you need to ask or clarify, feel to call the U.P. Office of Admissions at 981-8500, locals 3826-28 and 2080, or at telefax number 9274561.  Ask for Ms. Mylee.  You may also drop a line at oadms@up.edu.ph.

Alternatively, you may visit the said office at the corner of Kalaw Street and Quirino Street, U.P. Diliman campus, Quezon City.

  1. I forgot all the deficiencies that are needed to be mailed to the office of admissions of U.P Diliman. Can you help me by posting the list of requirements? thanks…

    • Deficiencies, if there are any, are assessed on a case-to-case basis. I’m sorry but there are no general listing of deficiencies so we have nothing to post here. If you have been told you need to clear up some deficiencies, please call UP directly to inquire what those deficiencies are.

  2. Dear Ma’am / Sir,

  4. i want to get the schedule of the entrance exam here in Batangas where? & when?please i just want to enroll for the SY-2011-2012 in UP diliman.

    • Hi Maria Ann,

      This year’s UPCAT (for SY 2011-2012) is taking place on August 7th and 8th. Your actual schedule (time and date) plus venue information may be found in your UPCAT Test Permit, which is given after your UPCAT application has been received, duly processed and approved by the Admissions Office. According to UP’s UPCAT site, one of the testing centers in CALABARZON is St. Bridget College High School Dept, Batangas City. If UP does not suddenly change venues, that’s likely where this year’s UPCAT in Batangas will take place.

      To take the UPCAT on August 7 or 8, you should file your application on or before June 25 (this is the application deadline for students hailing from Non-Metro-Manila schools; June 18 is the deadline for students from Metro Manila schools).
