About the UPCAT 2020
The University of the Philippines College Admission Test or UPCAT is one of the ways of gaining admission into the baccalaureate programs of UP. This year’s exam is called UPCAT 2020 because it is for admission into Academic Year 2020-2021. While it has the most number of examinees compared to other universities, passing the UPCAT is not an easy feat. On average, only 15- 17% of the examinees pass the UPCAT. In October 2018, a total of 90,408 eligible applicants took the UPCAT 2019 but only thirteen percent (13%) or 11,821 were qualified for admission.
The UPCAT is consists of 4 subtests: Language Proficiency (in English and Filipino), Reading Comprehension (in English and Filipino), Science, and Math. The UPCAT exam score is combined with the weighted average of the last 3 years of high school final grades to determine the UP admission grade (UPG). Then, the examinees are ranked according to UPG. Based on this ranking, students are then assigned a campus and degree course.
