USTET Schedule and Important Dates

Last updated: July 4, 2009

There are dates that we simply cannot forget.  It may be as romantic as a wedding anniversary or as melancholy as a funeral.  If it’s one thing a college hopeful shouldn’t forget, it’s the date of an entrance exam.

Fortunately, various universities have set up schedules that include all the important dates that any applicant should remember.  For those of you who are interested in attending the University of Santo Tomas, here are a few dates you can’t afford to be ignorant of.

The USTET Application Period

The first thing to do is to get the application process rolling.  It’s an awfully simple task, considering that UST already started accepting Metro Manila applicants last July 1, 2009. It will continue to dog so all the way until December 5 of this year.

Just drop by the UST Admissions Office anytime from eight in the morning till five in the afternoon.  The office itself is located in the Tan Yan Kee Student Center, Room 104 inside the UST campus.

USTET Testing Dates:  Metro Manila Applicants

August 23– 8:00 a.m. – 12:00 nn and 1:00 p.m. – 5:00 p.m.

October 5, 2009– 8:00 a.m. – 12:00 nn and 1:00 p.m. – 5:00 p.m.

December 6 2009 – 8:00 a.m. – 12:00 nn and 1:00 p.m. – 5:00 p.m.

That’s right; all three dates fall on Sundays.  Better get your rest and relaxation the day before if you want to do well.  Also note that the above schedule does not apply to potential students in the provinces.  They’ll have their own schedules to follow, as shown below.

USTET Testing Dates:  Provincial Applicants

Baguio City, Benguet – October 4, 2009

Cabanatuan City, Nueva Ecija – November 7, 2009

Dagupan City, Pangasinan – November 8, 2009

Legazpi City, Albay – September 27, 2009

Olongapo City, Zambales – September 5, 2009

As you can see, each and every provincial testing center has its own schedule.  Due to the sheer number of places available, I’ve listed only a handful of them above.  If you’d like more info on your particular region, check out a more comprehensive list available here:

Just for the record, the University also offers the USTET to international applicants.  As with the Philippine provincial testing centers, the exact exam dates vary, so kindly consult this site for more information.

Releasing of Results

As with any entrance test, you’ll need to wait for the powers-that-be to finish checking papers and tallying scores.  Fortunately, the kind folks at the UST Admissions Office have told me that the results will be out sometime during the middle of January 2010.

No exact date has been given, so check back with them every so often for updates.  If you like, you may get in touch with them at 406-1611 local 8276 or 309-7211.  If you prefer to use a mobile phone, they’re also available at 0917-8156323 or 0919-3522634.  You may also send them e-mail at [email protected].

For those of you who may be reading this in the province or in another country, simply visit the official UST website for more details.

    • Nicx,

      There’s no USTET (UST Entrance Test) in November but there is one scheduled for October (October 25th to be exact). To apply for that exam, visit the UST Office of Admissions at Rm 104 Tan Yan Kee Student Center, University of Santo Tomas, Manila. The Admissions Office is open from 8-11:30am and 1-5pm, Mondays to Saturdays.
