Philippine Science High School NCE 2018 Reviewer

The Philippine Science High School, commonly known as Pisay, is the premier secondary school and considered as the top science high school in the Philippines. It is viewed as one best science high school in the ASEAN region today. That is why it’s no surprise that every year, thousands of grade school graduates from public and private schools alike compete for the highly coveted seats in the Philippine Science High School. These seats are severely limited as their Main campus in Diliman, Quezon City only accepts 240 scholars while the regional campuses accept 90 scholars each.

Entrance Exam

To be admitted to the PSHS, a grade 6 or 7 elementary pupil must meet the criteria for eligibility and pass the PSHS National Competitive Examination (NCE). The PSHS NCE is a highly-selective process of selecting the PSHS scholars for its 13 campuses nationwide. Every year, only 5-6% of examinees are expected to pass this test.

To help you pass the NCE and be considered as a principal qualifier, we created this free online PSHS NCE Reviewer. It covers the subject areas included in the examination. This PSHS Entrance Test Reviewer is designed to build the students’ confidence and skills that are necessary to hurdle this coming 2018 PSHS National Competetive Examination. Please read on.

PSHS NCE Coverage

The Philippine Science High School qualifying examination is consists of items designed to measure the verbal aptitude, abstract reasoning, quantitative ability and the scientific aptitude of the applicant. The questions are based on the expected learning competencies of a graduating elementary student specifically in the areas of English, Mathematics, and Science. The non-verbal examination is composed of figures and illustrations.

PSHS NCE Reviewer

The chances of passing the PSHS Entrance Exam may be slim, but it could be improved by preparation and practice.

PUPCET Tips, Coverage and Reviewer

One of the biggest advantages of studying in Polytechnic University of the Philippines (PUP) is the low tuition fee. It is a government-funded school that is why the tuition fee was so affordable. Aside from the having the cheapest tuition nationwide, the institution is known for quality education. That is why thousands of graduating students across the country are hoping to pass the PUPCET and study at PUP.

The PUP College Entrance Test is a difficult one and you have to prepare for it. To help you pass and meet the required rating for your chosen course, we gather some tips on how to pass the PUPCET. We also provide a free online PUPCET reviewer to increase your chances of passing this entrance exam. Please read on.

Tips to Pass the PUPCET

Every year, thousands of students flock to PUP hoping to pass the PUPCET. Unfortunately, only a small percentage of examinees are admitted to PUP. To help you secure your spot and be an “Iskolar ng Bayan”, I suggest that you follow these PUPCET tips so that you will be prepared for this once in a lifetime experience:

1. Prepare and Review

Preparation is the key to passing this entrance exam. Prepare and gather review materials as soon as possible. Look for your old notes on your high school Mathematics, Science, and English.  Make a review plan and execute it. Ensure that you have at least 2 sharpened Mongol no. 2 pencils in your bag before leaving home for the exam.

2. Arrive Early

Hundreds, if not thousands of students are also taking the exam. Prepare yourself for heavy traffic and long queues. Try to arrive at the PUP campus early to give yourself some time to relax and prepare before the exam starts.

3. Bring your Test Permit

Secure the test permit in your bag before leaving home. Obviously, PUP will not allow you to take the exam if you do not have a test permit.

4. Practice Time Management

Like what I have said earlier, PUPCET is a difficult exam. What makes it difficult is that you have to answer 150-200 questions in just 2 hours. It means that you need to answer a question in just a minute and a half. Try not to waste time on difficult questions. Just get back at them later after answering the easy ones.

5. Take the Exam Neatly

The answer sheets will be checked by a machine. Shade your answers properly and try to avoid erasures.

PUPCET Coverage

The first step of preparing for the PUPCET is to know the subject areas covered in the examination. This way, you can focus your review on these subjects increasing your chances of passing the PUPCET. Here are the subjects covered in the 2018 PUP College Entrance Test:

  • Mathematics- Algebra, quantitative reasoning, and basic Mathematics
  • English- Spelling, Verbal Reasoning, Reading comprehension, and grammar.
  • Science- Biology, Physics, Chemistry
  • Abstract Reasoning
  • General Information

PUPCET Reviewer

This online PUPCET reviewer is made to help Filipinos pass the PUPCET and later be admitted to the Polytechnic University of the Philippines. It is composed of 20-30 item quizzes in a multiple choice format. We do not guarantee a 100% success rate but it will definitely increase the odds of admission to the PUP.

How to Become a Pilot in the Philippine Air Force

Have you ever wanted to fly a fighter plane? Is becoming a fighter pilot in the air force became your lifelong dream. Why don’t you join the Philippine Air Force Flying School this 2018? If you are interested in joining the ranks of our elite warriors in the sky, please read on.

The Philippine Air Force Flying School

The Philippine Air Force Flying School is the “Air Force Academy of the Philippines”. Located at the pine-tree clad Fernando Air Base in Lipa City Batangas province, it is responsible for the training of all the future pilots of the Philippine Air Force.

In the past, you can directly join the Philippine Air Force Flying School (PAFFS) right after college through the Aviation Cadet Program (ACP) and start your Military Pilot Training (MPT) as a DODO Cadet in the Philippine Air Force Flying School. But since the Philippine Air Force discontinued the Aviation Cadet Program of the PAFFS, the only way take the Military Pilot Training is to become an officer in the PAF with the rank of 2nd Lieutenant. There are two ways to accomplish this. The first is to join the Philippine Air Force Officer Candidate School (PAFOCS) or the Philippine Military Academy (PMA).

Philippine Air Force Flying School Requirements

Becoming a pilot in the Air Force is a long and rigorous process. It is no easy task, but if you make it, you will be among the elite warriors of the Armed Forces of the Philippines. Here’s what you need to do if you’re going to try to earn your wings:

You must be an officer in the Air Force

If you are between 17 to 21 years old, you can join the PMA and become a cadet of the most prestigious military school in the country today. Choose the Air Force as your branch of service. After graduation, you’ll be commissioned as a 2nd Lieutenant (2Lt) in the Philippine Air Force. To join the PMA, follow our guide on PMA Entrance Exam 2018 Date, Requirements, Coverage and Application Guide.

The other way to become an officer in the PAF to join the Philippine Air Force Flying School is to join the Philippine Air Force Officer Candidate School (PAFOCS). If you are 21-29 years of age and a holder of a Baccalaureate Degree, you can try entering the PAF through PAFOCS. Here are the requirements for the PAF Officer Candidate Course:

  • You must be a graduate of a 4-year course with a Bachelor’s Degree.
  • Must be a natural-born Filipino citizen.
  • With good moral character.
  • Physically and mentally fit for military training
  • You must be no less than 21 yrs old but not a day older than 29 upon admission for training
  • Single, never married and no legal obligation to support a child or children.
  • At least 5 feet in height (152.5 cm) for both male and female.

Physical defects such as the following would demerit or disqualify the application:

  • Tattoo
  • Obesity
  • Pierced ear/s for males and extra piercing for females
  • Crossed eyedness
  • Bow-leggedness
  • Excess/lacking finger

Must be recommended by your Commander

Well, this is self-explanatory. It means you must have the approval and recommendation of your commanding officer before entering the PAFFS to take the Military Pilot Training.

You must be physically and mentally fit

Entering the PAF Flying School requires another examination, the Military Pilot Aptitude Test (MPAT). It is the qualifying exam prior to flight training. You must pass this exam along with the series of interviews and medical examinations. Make sure to have a 20/20 vision and not color blind. After passing the medical exam, interview and aptitude test, you will be selected to be one of the Student Officer and the chances of joining will depend on your standing after the series of examination and interviews had been finished.


Becoming a pilot in the Philippine Air Force is a very rewarding career. Once you got your wings, you can fly choppers, fixed-wing aircraft, turboprops, or jets. After your service in the military, you can join the civilian aviation industry as a commercial pilot. The Air Force is your cheap but longer route to your future aviation career. Goodluck and fly safe!
