UPCAT Schedule for AY 2012-2013 admissions

Newsflash for students currently in third year high school. We now have word on the next  UPCAT application and exam schedule. Call it UPCAT 2011 (for it would be administered this year) or call it UPCAT 2012 – call it what you will, but we’re referring to the UPCAT Application for Freshman Admission for the First Semester of the 2012-2013 academic year.

The deadlines for submitting your UPCAT application form are the following:

  • June 17, 2011 (Friday) – if you’re from a MM school
  • June 24, 2011 (Friday)- if you’re from a non-MM school

The UPCAT  for the first semester of the  2012-2013 freshmen intake year will be administered on the following dates:

  • August 6, 2011 (Saturday)
  • August 7, 2011 (Sunday)

As usual, the UPCAT will be held in various testing centers nationwide. There will be two testing schedules each day: morning and afternoon. Every UPCAT taker will be assigned to only one UPCAT testing schedule and will be assigned only to one UPCAT testing date. In other words, it’s a one-shot deal so take your UPCAT in your testing date and testing schedule.

Important: You don’t have to be in the top 10 percent (or top-whatever-percent) of your class to take the UPCAT. The UPCAT is open to everyone (as long as specific non-grade eligibility requirements are satisfied, of course).

  2. Hi Admin,

    Could you please create an article which tackle about “How to get into UP if you’re a transferee”.

    The mentioned articles should give brief answer & concise explanation for the following questions :
    1. What are the basic information in transferring to UP?
    2. What are the required documents and general qualification
    to transfer in UP? I know it’s all depend on what department or course you decided to take into… right? But still some basic details or a sum-up of everything are requested—> much appreciated if available! (kulit galore).
    3. When to transfer? What are the needed exams, interviews or any processes that a certain transferee will undergone in order to quality or be processed?

    Looking forward to your reply…..
    I’m eager to hear something from you…. thanks in advance!

  4. I am currently an exchange student po here in United States and I’ll be back in the Philippines before the UPCAT. What i did was fill up the application forms and send it to my parents, who are in the Philippines right now, and they will fill out the rest and also ask my school to fill out the section intended for them to fill out. So, here’s my question, is it gonna affect the said 40% UPG when I submit the grades that i got here in US? And i am from a science oriented public high school in one of the provinces in the Philippines and also part of a minority group, will i ever get the said UPCAT bonus, the 0.05%, even though i am an exchange student? Thank you and more powers! 🙂

    • Hi Ma’am,

      Anong taon po ba magka-college yung anak nyo? Is it School Year / Academic Year 2013-2014?

      Next year’s UPCAT should take place in August of 2012; the UPCAT always takes place in August. That exam would be for incoming college freshmen in School Year 2013-2014. Deadlines for applying for the August 2012 UPCAT should fall around mid to late June.

      For Academic Year 2012-2013, the UPCAT is over. It took place in August 2011 and results should be out around January – February.

Malayo po talaga kasi itong lugar namin, pero willing naman po akong magtravel sa pinakamalapit na venue ng pagttake-an ng UPCAT.(pipilitin ko po parents ko) hehe .

    • You can personally go to a UP Branch to get the forms needed for UPCAT or wait for them to be available in UP-M’s website. You can also ask a form to your school’s guidance counselor :))
