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
