# UPCAT Schedule and Important Dates

Hello boys and girls!  UPCAT is right around the corner.  We sincerely hope you are prepared to face the grueling (depends on your point of view), five-hour (this is fact) exam.

### UPCAT Schedule:  August 1 to 2, 2009

The UP College Admission Test is set to take place on August 1 to 2, 2009 barring unforeseen issues or problems.  For that matter, I don’t know if UPCAT has ever been postponed.  I will have to look in on that.  Better yet, if you have information you wish to share, please hit me; I’m open.

June 23, 2009 – Deadline for Filing of UPCAT Application if you go to a school in Metro Manila
June 30, 2009 – Deadline for Filing of UPCAT Application if you go to a non-MM school

### UPCAT Application Form

If you have never heard of UPCAT till now (where on Earth are you living, anyway?), you still have a chance to get your application in (as long as you have courier service in your town and your school officials prove to be cooperative).  Simply download the forms and the guidelines listed below (these PDF documents are sourced directly from the UP website), print them, fill them out, and get them over to the Office of Admissions by the above stated dates.

If you need a primer on the UPCAT, donwload the document specified below.  Like the other two, this comes from the UP website.  Unlike the other two, this is an MS Word document.  You’ll be asked to either “Open” or “Save” the document in your computer; the document will not open in your browser.

Now, if you’re wondering how much UPCAT costs, we have just the information you need.  If your annual family income (that’s gross) is P100,000 and above, you have to pay P450.  If you are taking the UPCAT in the Middle East, your UPCAT Fee is $100. Foreigners living abroad have to pay$50.
