The UPCAT Results for AY 2012-2013 are out! You’ve probably heard the great news already but, for the benefit of those who haven’t, we’re updating Academic-Clinic.com anyway.
We wanted to copy-paste the entire list of UPCAT passers for 2012, but there really is no need to do so. The University of the Philippines website is up, I’ve not heard any downtime issues and, if there are, there are mirror sites where you can check UPCAT Results.
CHECK UPCAT RESULTS 2012 ONLINE
To check UPCAT Results 2012 online, click or copy-paste (onto your URL bar) this URL: http://upcat.up.edu.ph/results/. Once there, you will be presented with a list of alphabetically arranged name-ranges (FYI: there are 130 name ranges but the image below shows only 16).
Just click on the name range within which your name falls to see if your name is listed in that name range’s list of passers.
Useful to Know: The UPCAT results are also posted in two other mirror sites. If you’re having problems accessing the main site, click on Mirror 2 and Mirror 3 (FYI: There are 3 available mirror sites but only Mirror 2 and Mirror 3 worked when I tried them).
UPCAT Qualifier Status
If you passed, Congratulations! Read Academic-Clinic’s Post UPCAT Ultimate Guide for information on UP, surviving UP and other information relevant to UP freshmen.
If you have an asterisk (*) instead of a student number, you qualified but you do need to clear certain deficiencies with the UP Office of Admissions. Clearing of deficiencies will start on the first week of February 2012. Call the UP Office of Admissions for more information.
If you don’t have a Student Number, a Campus and if in place of Course you have **Pending Case, that means the university is still undecided about your status. You might have a chance of getting admitted, but this is not guaranteed. If yours is a pending case because you have not met certain requirements, make sure you have cleared those deficiencies by the 2nd week of March 2012. For more information, inquire at the UP Office of Admissions beginning on the first week of February 2012.

Must Read Post UPCAT Resource
Whatever your UPCAT Status, you must read Academic-Clinic’s Post UPCAT Ultimate Guide. This post contains links to informative posts on everything that could possibly matter to both UPCAT passers and UPCAT non-passers alike.
Important Advisory from UP
Official UPCAT Results are posted at the UP Office of Admissions and would be sent to you by mail. If there is any discrepancy in the UPCAT Results posted online and the information contained in your official notification from the UP Office of Admissions, the latter (i.e. the mailed notification) shall take precedence.
UP would also like to clarify that if your name was initially marked “Pending Case” then later on your name disappeared from the list, this means that UP has made a decision on your case and found in favor of non-qualification.
If you did not pass the UPCAT
Read Academic-Clinic’s Post UPCAT Ultimate Guide. This collection of resources contains several that you will find useful including the UPCAT Reconsideration Process, What to do if you did not pass the UPCAT, and many more.
Apply for Reconsideration
You should try to apply for reconsideration in a UP Campus. Check out your non-qualifier slip and look for your UPG. Next, call up UP Campuses and ask them for their UPG cut-off scores. If you find a UP Campus for which your UPG qualifies you, ask that UP Campus about its reconsideration process and requirements. Follow the instructions you’re given and comply with all requirements, then wait for your UP reconsideration application results.
Important Note: Reconsideration is not guaranteed even if your UPG cut-off qualifies you for a UP Campus. Slots (if available) might be limited. Individual UP Campuses also have their own criteria for accepting reconsideration applicants; UPG score is just one of these criteria.
For more information on the UP reconsideration process, read UPCAT Reconsideration Process.
Enlist in another university then transfer
You can also enroll in another university and distinguish yourself academically. After earning at least 33 academic units with a weighted average of 2.00 or better (grades will be evaluated according to the UP Grading system and standard), you may apply for transfer to a UP campus.
