A former classmate of mine decided to attend the University of Asia and the Pacific way back in 1995.  It was only years later that I understood how critical that year was for a school that previously served a purpose other than offering tertiary education (More on that in a moment.).

You know the drill:  study or review for the entrance exam, apply at the college in question, pay the fee, get the schedule, take the test, go for the interview, enroll.  That’s how the system works for most universities out there.

The prospect of taking an entrance test can be one of the most trying experiences for an incoming college freshman, particularly if that test is called the ACET.  Add in the reputation of the entrance exam being “unfinishable” and you have a good recipe for burnout. The good news is that there are strategies you [...]

UPCAT Review Tips: Study Myths and Tips

By admin

One of the things I distinctly remember from my highfaluting college theology classes is the reality of being sincerely wrong.  That is, people may think that what they believe in is the truth when it actually isn’t.
