UPCAT Review Options

In some cases, an UPCAT review may just be the deciding factor whether you get admitted into the University of the Philippines or not.  In such cases, it pays to know what your options are regarding reviews for UPCAT.

 1.  UPCAT Review Center:  the usual option is to enroll in an UPCAT review center.  Aside from providing a structured format for preparing for the UPCAT through traditional classroom lectures, mock exams, quizzes and review modules, these UPCAT review centers may also provide invaluable information like exam taking tips, application tips and career seminars.  To see our list of UPCAT Review Centers, click here.

 2.  Online UPCAT Reviews:  the recent years have shown the growing acceptance of an alternative mode of reviewing for the UPCAT – the Online UPCAT review.  This UPCAT review alternative will offer you much of the options in a traditional UPCAT review such as sample exams, reviewers, solution sets and more like video lectures, help forums, etc.

 Although this type of UPCAT review will not give you the face to face learning advantage of traditional UPCAT reviews and tangible review materials, it compensates for it by preparing you for the UPCAT in the comfort of your own home and in your own time.  You just have to be disciplined enough to follow the program to its end.

Many Review Centers are already offering online UPCAT review programs. We also have Free UPCAT Reviewers and Sample Quizzes here on our site.

 3.  Free UPCAT Reviews:  some UP student organizations conduct free UPCAT reviews yearly.  Most of these reviews are held in provinces where these provincial student orgs are based.  We have compiled a list of such free UPCAT reviews in our academic website which can be found here.

 The benefit of these free UPCAT review is the fact that those who will be handling the review proper are UP students.  This means that you’ll have an updated and practical source of advice and registration regarding the UPCAT.  Moreoever, these student organizations have a more hands on and personal approach when it comes to conducting their free UPCAT reviews.

 The downside of this option is that the UPCAT review materials and lecture materials might not be as complete as you prefer them to be – the reviews being free and the student organization having limited funds.  The review proper might also be substantially shorter than the paid UPCAT reviews.

 4.  UPCAT Self Review:  Due to limited finances or time constraints, a number of UPCAT takers opt for self review.  This method of reviewing for the UPCAT depends largely on the student’s discipline for it to suceed.  Given the right resources though, of which there are many online, a student can find this type of UPCAT review as effective or even more so than the traditional reviews.

 Here is a list of what you’ll need for an UPCAT self review:

 A.  UPCAT Tips:  remember that even before the UPCAT day, 40% of your final score is already computed from your high school grades and a large percentage of the probability of you getting into the University of the Philippines is already dependent on what you’ve written in your application papers – choice of college and course.  This makes getting your hands on UPCAT tips of paramount importance.

 B.  UPCAT Coverage:  knowing the coverage of the UPCAT is already half the battle.  This means that you can focus your efforts on studying subjects that have a large probability of appearing on the UPCAT.  Read our post about UPCAT Coverage here.

 C.  UPCAT Review Modules:  Practice is the key to passing the UPCAT and the best way to practice is to answer sample UPCAT exams.  This lessens your chance of having mental block during the actual exam, helps you solve problems quicker and exposes you to the different subject matters that may appear in the UPCAT.  Download our Free UPCAT Readings and Modules here.

 D.  Answer keys and Solution Sets:  of course, the above will not help much if you dont have an answer key and solution set for the presented problems.  With these, you can see how each problem is solved and what techniques are employed in solving them.

 So choose among the options on what type of UPCAT review is best for you.  You can even combine some of them to increase your chances of passing the UPCAT even more.
