Like you, I'm an incoming high school senior this June. A few months ago I was just like you, curious how to be accepted into the countries top universities but because of Academic Clinic (www.academic-clinic.com) and forums I now have an idea how. You could also go to the school's website and read about their admission guidelines. P.S.- It doesn't matter what school you came from- the universities check your grades not your background.

UP Certificate in Sports Studies Admission Basics


We like to think of school as an environment for developing the intellect, and rightly so.  However, there are people out there whose intelligence lies in the kinesthetic realm—we call them athletes.

 

The good news is that there are courses just for them.  UP Diliman has a Certificate in Sports Studies program for those who excel in the more physically-oriented arts.  The words “certificate program” may lead you to think that the requirements are the same as any other certificate course, yet that is not exactly the case.  You’ll soon find out why…

 

The Requirements…with OneBig Difference

 

Unlike other certificate courses, the Certificate in Sports Studies program is different in the sense that applicants are required to take the UPCAT in order to qualify for it.  The college of Human Kinetics will only accept applicants with a minimum entrance test grade of 2.800.

 

The program is also open to shiftees and transferees.  The latter must have earned 36 units’ worth and a passing grade in each of their classes so far (a minimum of 2.5 of its equivalent).

 

The required paperwork is fairly standard:

  • The completed application form
  • A photocopy of your high school grades
  • 4 1×1 size ID pictures
  • 4 2×2 size ID pictures
  • Payment of the 500 peso application and testing fee

 

The application process starts right after the UPCAT results are released, which is sometime in February.  Likewise, the deadline for the submission of requirements is usually scheduled sometime in April.

 

Screening for the Best

 

The screening process kicks off with a general sports skill test.  Applicants choose three sports and the College of Human Kinetics (CHK) determines what they can do.  Applicants may also expect a physical fitness test that measures their physical conditioning.

 

No screening process is complete without some sort of interview—in this case, a panel of CHK officials will interview the student and determine why they really want to apply for the course.  Finally, the sports readiness test involves a deeper exam compared to its general sports skill counterpart.  This is where you get into the scientific nitty-gritty and the technical details of the sports in question.

 

Please note that this is by no means the exact testing sequence.  The College of Human Kinetics determines that based on schedules.  Also note that only the top 25 applicants will be chosen based on their UPCAT and screening performance.

 

Contact Details
