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).Source: UP Academic Calendar for AY 2011-2012
