UPCAT Application: Frequently Asked Questions

By admin Tuesday, May 17th, 2011


Is there an extension of the submission deadline for UPCAT requirements?

Sort of.  There is no official extension of the deadline, yet the U.P. Admissions Office is willing to accept to accept late submissions depending on the supply of exam permits.  If there are still permits available after the June 2011 deadlines pass, then students may submit past the deadlines.  If not, then they’ll have to wait until next year (Please note that incoming freshmen are not allowed to apply for the second semester of the current school year).


Is there another UPCAT schedule?

Not for 2011, no.  U.P. holds the UPCAT only once per year.  The closest thing to “another schedule” would be the test for the second semester applicants for the year.


This is how it works:  The August 6, 2011 sessions combine the applicants for school year 2012-2013 and the applicants for the second semester of school year 2011-2012.  The afternoon session of August 7, 2011 is solely for second semester applicants of the current school year.


In other words, the university has covered all the bases in one weekend, and unless it comes up with a last-minute official announcement, there will be other test sessions until the following year.


What do I do if I lose my UPCAT test permit?

If you lose your permit a month before the exam, you can always ask for another one so long as there are stocks left.  Explain your situation to the admissions office people and bring a valid ID and a couple of 2×2 pictures.


If there are no more permits left, or if all else fails, don’t despair.  As long as you submitted all your requirements, your name should show up on the school’s master list of applicants.  Simply show up during your test day with your valid ID so that they can check their records for your name.


What do I do if I forget my UPCAT username/password?

If you forget your password, go to the password retrieval service here and enter the pertinent information.  If you forget your username, it’s best to make a new account and start over.
