ACET Results for AY 2012-2013 Freshmen

Just an update for everyone who took the Ateneo College Entrance Test in September, 2011: the ACET 2012 Results are now out. Again, it should be clarified that this is the ACET results for SY 2012-2013 incoming freshmen.

Where to check ACET results 2012 – 2013:

Go to the Ateneo de Manila University (ADMU) website, specifically to the ACET Results page ( You can also visit the ADMU Loyola Heights Campus; the list of ACET qualifiers for School Year 2012-2013 is posted at the bulletin boards at the Blue Eagle Gym.

Checking ACET Results Online

Go to the ACET Results Database ( Once the page has loaded, enter your last name, first name and your middle name in the appropriate fields.

Tips on searching for your name in the Ateneo College Application Results Database:

  • If you are Juan de la Cruz III and your wrote your name as such in your ACET Application papers, you should include the III suffix in the last name field.
  • If you have two first names, you should write both names in the first name field. If you can’t find your name and if one of your first names is usually shortened (e.g. Ma. instead of Maria) then you should try all possible variations.
  •  Don’t leave any of the three fields blank. If, for instance, you don’t have a middle name, you must use a dash (a hyphen, really) in the middle name field.
  • If your name has an ñ on it, don’t replace it with an n when you search for your name in the 2012 ACET Results database. Keyboard shortcut for ñ is Ctrl+Alt+164 (if you’re using a laptop or a netbook, you may have to put your keypad on numlock first).
  • Most important tip of all: as a rule of thumb, use the exact information you used in your application papers. Even if you have a III in your name, you should not use that when you search the ACET Results online database if you did not include such a suffix in your application documents.

Disclaimer: The Ateneo de Manila University states that online ACET Results are “unofficial”. You’ll receive your official results by mail.

Individual decision letters for applicants in the first application period will be sent out within this month. Individual decision letters for applicants in the second application period shall receive their decision letters in February.

ACET Results and the Next Steps

With the hustle and bustle of modern life, it’s ironic that quite a bit of time is still devoted to waiting for things we consider important.  For students who wish to join the ranks of the blue-blooded, it means waiting for the results of last year’s Ateneo de Manila University’s College Entrance Test (ACET).

The good news is that the wait is almost over.  Getting the news isn’t the end all and be all of things, though—you’ll still need to tie up some loose ends afterward.

The Moment of Truth

The Day of Reckoning may already be upon you even as you read this article—Ateneo officials have set it for one o’ clock in the afternoon of Saturday, January 16, 2010.  The place to be is the area to the side of the Blue Eagle gym (not inside the gym itself).

For those who’d prefer not to go all the way to Loyola Heights, the powers-that-be will also post the results online.  Simply check this website every so often after 1 p.m. on the aforementioned date.

I said “every so often” because one o’ clock is more or less an estimate—depending on how their system goes, the results may or may not be up at exactly that time.  Nevertheless, rest assured that university staff members will do their best to get the results online as soon as they possibly can.

The Waiting Game

Let’s say you’ve passed the ACET.  Congratulations!  Don’t rest on your laurels yet; there’s still work to be done in the form of confirming your enrolment.

Here’s the big question:  may I do so as soon as I get my results?  The answer, unfortunately, is no, not yet.  For one thing, you’ll need to wait for a certain instruction-filled letter to arrive in your hands by February.  All the details of your post-ACET procedure will be listed there.

As with the ACET results, Ateneo staff members will post the instructions on the official website as well.  In fact, they’ll probably do so long before your letter arrives.  Nevertheless, stretch your patience a little and wait a bit.

Another thing you should note is the fact that enrolment confirmation proper will begin on March 8, 2010.  That’s when you can go ballistic as far as enrolment confirmation is concerned.  Your deadliest deadline for getting all the requirements in is 12 noon of April 10.

Ask and Ye Shall Receive

A former professor of mine once told me that “the only stupid question is the one that isn’t asked.”  If you have any questions about your ACET test results or if there’s anything you need to clarify about the post-ACET instructions, direct them toward the Loyola College Office of Admission and Aid.

Simply dial 426-6001 and follow the recorded voice’s instructions to get connected to the office.  Look for either Queenie or Mr. Fajardo.  If you’d rather interact with them in traditional face-to-face fashion, however, just drop by the Ateneo College Campus along Loyola Heights, Katipunan Avenue, Quezon City.
