PSHS-NCE 2023 Result

Here are the passers of the 2023 PSHS National Competitive Examination. Congratulations!

Previous Exam

The COVID-19 pandemic forced the PSHS to cancel the National Competitive Examination last year. To avoid exposing thousands of examinees to the virus at testing sites across the country, they introduced a new system called the National Competitive Examination Requirements for Admission, Criteria and Evaluation (NCE-RACE).

The selection procedure consisted of two stages. The first stage calculated the applicant’s predicted NCE grade (PNG) based on their final grades in Science and Mathematics in Grade 5. The second stage assessed their writing skills through an essay submission.

Out of 3,843 students who took the second stage exam, only 1,768 qualified for the Philippine Science High School program. PSHS announced the results on December 17, 2022, about one (1) month after the application deadline.

PSHS-NCE Overview

The National Competitive Examination is the entrance examination of the Philippine Science High School. The exam is a scholastic aptitude test designed to measure the scientific, quantitative, abstract, and verbal abilities of the applicants before they are accepted as state scholars.

He or she must be a Filipino citizen with no pending or approved application as an an immigrant to any foreign country. For this year’s NCE, the applicant must be born on or before June 30, 2009, and must have at least a satisfactory rating (or its equivalent) in his or her Character Rating in his/her report card (SY 2022 – 2023).
