"Check the UPCAT website ( for announcements and posting of UPCAT results between February and March 2017. A list of UP Qualifiers from your school will be sent to your principal. Individual notices will also be sent to all examinees," the general information guidelines stated.

UPCAT was administered on September 18, 2016 in at least nine campuses nationwide: UPEPP (Clarkfield, Pampanga), UP Visayas (Iloilo City), UP Los BaƱos (Laguna), UP Cebu (Cebu City), UP Tacloban College (Tacloban City), Cagayan de Oro City, UP Mindanao (Davao City), UP Baguio (Baguio City) and UP Diliman (Quezon City).

Aside from the UPCAT website, results will be available also on mirror sites Stickbreadsolutions and Preginet that will redirect to UPCAT 2017 Results page.

A decline in number of high school graduates who took the exams is expected due to the full implementation of senior high school as part of the K-12 Program.

"For SY 2017-2018, UP will continue to provide access to high quality university education despite the significant decrease in HS graduates eligible to enter college due to the implementation of the K-12 Program."

Campus qualifiers are ranked according to the degree program predictor. Top-ranking qualifiers are accepted according to the number of slots available for that program.
