About the UPCAT
The UPCAT 2019 was originally scheduled on September 15-16 but later rescheduled due to inclement weather brought by Typhoon Ompong. As per UP Vice President for Academic Affairs Cynthia Bautista, more than 100,000 hopefuls took the UPCAT on October 27-28, 2018. 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.
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.
