UPCAT 2019 postponed due to Typhoon Ompong
The UP Office of Admissions will be postponing the administration of the UPCAT 2019 nationwide. 

The UP Office of Admissions announced the nationwide postponement of the exam after the consultation with UP System officials and weather experts on the latest forecast on 'Ompong.'

The super typhoon is expected to affect Northern Luzon and Eastern Seaboard including Western Visayas.

In addition, the postponement "is in consideration of the nationwide scope of the exam that entails synchronized travel arrangements among others which pose undue risks to both UPCAT examinees and UPCAT personnel."

The state-run university may take at least 2 weeks to study the situation and reschedule the UPCAT, UP Vice President for Public Affairs Jose Dalisay Jr. told DZMM radio.
