DLSUCET Application: Frequently Asked Questions

Is there an extension of the submission deadline for DLSUCET requirements?

Unfortunately, there isn’t one.  DLSU is pretty strict when it comes to submission deadlines because the testing schedule allows for batches.  In the event that an applicant misses his or her deadline, the admissions office will relegate him or her to the next available batch instead.  It’s not quite a “deadline extension”, yet it’s the closest thing to one.

 

Is there another DLSUCET schedule?

Strictly speaking, there is no other DLSUCET schedule besides the one posted on the school’s official website.  The closest thing to “another schedule” would be the succeeding dates of testing for the next batch of applicants for the same school year.

 

Normally, it’s the Office that determines which student goes to which batch, but that doesn’t mean students are stuck.  It’s possible to get “shifted” to another batch with a different testing schedule within the limits prescribed by the Admissions Office.  Submitting requirements late, for instance, will move the applicants to the succeeding batch.

What do I do if I lose my DLSUCET test permit?

Never fear:  DLSU will provide a new test permit for you if ever you lose your original one.  It won’t come for free, though—be prepared to shell out 50 pesos for a new one.  Of course, it’s best not to lose your permit in the first place.

 

What do I do if I forget my DLSUCET confirmation number?

The DLSU online application system makes use of confirmation numbers instead of usernames and passwords.  Unfortunately, a confirmation number retrieval system doesn’t exist.  If you happen to lose or forget that magic number, the Admissions Office staff members recommend filling another form up and reapplying.  It’s inconvenient, but it’s really the only way to go.

DLSUCET 2010 (AY 2011-2012) Application Ongoing

Newsflash everybody! The De La Salle University College Entrance Test (DLSUCET) application is now ongoing. The DLSUCET application period officially started on June 1, 2010. The application period will end on August 31, 2010. If you don’t want to miss your chance of taking the DLSUCET and studying in DLSU come June 2011, apply now!

Important notes:

The testing dates for DLSUCET (for MM test takers) is scheduled on October 10, 17 and 24, 2010.  For provincial test takers, there will be DLSUCET exams on August 28 (Legaspi and Iloilo), September 4 (Davao and Dagupan),  September 11 (Cebu and Angeles), September 18 (Bacolod and Puerto Princesa), and September 25 (Cagayan de Oro and Santiago).

Provincial applicants should therefore process their DLSUCET applications as fast as possible to get a slot for the provincial test schedules.

DLSUCET Results Are Out!

This is just an update.  I know you’re dying to know how well you did in the UPCAT, DLSUCET, ACET and/or USTET, but hold your horses. Some of these results are just not out yet.  Here’s the lowdown:

  • DLSUCET 2010 Results:  Already available at the DLSU site

DLSU promised the results would be out the first week of January, and DLSU Admissions is true to its word. Congratulations DLSUCET passers!

As for the rest of the college entrance exams, there hasn’t been an official word yet.  I guess the results will be there when they are.  Incoming freshmen, don’t overly fret about it.  I understand how you’re feeling – been there, done that.  I tell you, though, worrying about it won’t help.  I almost did not receive my UP admission letter myself because of a very inefficient post office, but did worrying about it help?  Not at all.  It just gave me a very bad headache.

Word to the wise:  Just check the UP, UST and Ateneo websites regularly.  The results will be out when these universities are ready and  not a moment sooner.  We’ll keep you posted when we see the results.  We’re checking everyday, just like you.

DLSUCET Schedule Changes

There have been some changes to the DLSUCET schedule and timetable.  First of all, the DLSUCET application form and other requirements’ submission deadline has been moved to October 8, 2009.  Second, there is no longer going to be an October 4 exam.   Two days ago (September 29, 2009), De La Salle University announced on its website that the DLSU College Entrance Test scheduled for October 4, 2009 has been moved to October 25, 2009.  Those who are scheduled to take the October 4 exam are therefore advised to report for the DLSUCET on October 25 instead.

In effect, first-round DLSUCET exam-takers have become the last-round DLSUCET test-takers.  Such exam takers will be using the same DLSUCET Test Permit (their October 4 Test Permit, that is) and must report to the originally indicated testing room at the originally scheduled time.

This is a snapshot of the announcement at the DLSU website:

  • October 18, 2009

If you are planning to take the DLSUCET at Aquinas University in Legaspi City, your completely filled-out application has to be in before September 26, 2009, the set DLSUCET testing day at that venue.

The following are some other important dates to remember (taken from the DLSU website):

UPCAT, DLSUCET, ACET & USTET Application

It’s that time of the year again when a young man’s fancy turns to thoughts of…college entrance tests.  Seriously, various universities have already gotten the application ball rolling, and potential applicants are already working hard to land a much-coveted spot in the institution of their choice.

If the mad scramble for a college has left you feeling more than a bit dazed, worry not:  I’ll be sharing some information here to help you get your schedule in order.  Let’s shed a little light on four entrance exams in particular:  the USTET, the ACET, the DLSUCET and the UPCAT.

All We Ask of You

One thing that students will quickly realize is that the application process is an investment in time, money and effort:  Besides any fees that they need to shell out, students will also need to submit a bit of paperwork.

The good news is that the documents are generally similar across universities.  Each university has its own standard issue application forms, so filling these out is a must.  Of course, it wouldn’t be a proper process without the mandatory recent ID pictures.

Watch out for some subtle differences, however.  For example, U.P. may also ask for a photocopy of your Permanent Secondary School Record (otherwise known as F137), duly signed and certified, while UST will ask for a photocopy of your birth certificate.

Of Tests and Time Tables

As expected, each university also has its own schedule for administering its entrance exams and for revealing the results.  Ateneo and U.P. usually start accepting potential students sometime mid-June, while UST and DLSU get things going in July.

The duration of the process also varies from university to university.  Some, like UST, will continue accepting applicants all the way until December.  Others, like DLSU, only do so until September.

If you’re thinking of taking the entrance tests of the four universities mentioned above, it’d probably be wise to deal with the UPCAT and the USTET first, as they both usually take place in August.

The former usually falls on the first weekend of the month, while the latter may land on anywhere from the first to the third weekend of August.  If scheduling is a problem, do know that UST also offers its test during October and December.

Next in line is the ACET, which tends to take up the second or third weekend of September.  Finally, the DLSUCET gives you the option of three Sundays in October, so take your pick and go for it.

The Waiting Game

You can imagine the sheer number of papers that school authorities have to check following exams, so a waiting period is definitely in order.  In case you’re wondering if taking a particular exam at a later date also translates into getting your test results later than earlier batches, wonder no more.

The good news is that all the aforementioned universities have the same set time for releasing exam results—January. This holds true regardless of when you took those exams in the first place.

When you really think about it, applying at a college doesn’t have to be that bad.  Once you know what to expect, a little planning, preparation and prayer will go a long way.
