LIST OF PASSERS: UPCAT 2020 results release online

    MANILA, Philippines – The University of the Philippines Office of Admissions is postponing the release of the UP College Admissions Test (UPCAT) 2020 results, which was originally scheduled on March 30, 2020. Takers may expect announcement of list of passers around April-May 2020.

    UP's decision to postpone the release of the results is prompted by two considerations:

    1) the reality that the UPCAT applicants will have different levels of access to online results in light of the Luzon Enhanced Community Quarantine;

    2) the need to suspend UPCAT processing after March 16, 2020 in consideration of the welfare of the large team of employees working on the pre-release validation of UPCAT results—who live in various locations within and at the outskirts of Metro Manila.


    UPCAT this year was administered on October 5 and 6 in various testing centers across the country.

    It is taken yearly by graduating high school students in the Philippines seeking entry into the national university.

    Last year, there were a total of 140,593 applicants for UPCAT 2019, though only 101,134 were eligible. Out of the eligible applicants, 90,408 took the exams. Thirteen percent or 11,821 were qualified for admission.

    NOTE: Under UP’s complicated but well-studied admission rules, the results of the UPCAT exam itself make up just 60 percent of an applicant’s University Predicted Grade or UPG, an assessment of the student’s likelihood of succeeding in UP. The balance is made up for by an averaging of the applicant’s high school grades, plus a small plus or minus to encourage economic, social, and geographical diversity.

    The UPCAT is consists of 4 subtests: Language Proficiency (in English and Filipino), Reading Comprehension (in English and Filipino), Science, and Math.

    NOTE: Passers of UPCAT are screened for acceptance into one of the degree programs they chose. Different grade predictors are used for different programs. 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.

    UP Oblation Scholarship

    Since 1991, the UP Oblation Scholarship has been awarded to the top fifty UPCAT students. The benefits include free tuition, miscellaneous and laboratory fees, and a monthly incentive.

    Recipients may enjoy the UP Oblation Scholarship throughout the normal length of time required to finish their chosen degree program, provided they maintain the required grade point average. For those in the accelerated medical program (INTARMED), however, only the first four years are covered by this grant.

    A number of scholarships, study grants and awards donated by government and private companies or individuals, are also available for the Office of Scholarships and Student Services. Most are intended for financially needy students, though some are awarded in recognition of outstanding academic performance.

    While it has applied a socialized tuition scheme for many decades now, UP led other state universities and colleges last year by implementing full free tuition ahead of the signing of the Universal Access to Quality Tertiary Education Act or the free tuition law.

    UP among world's best

    UP was recently ranked in the 401-500 group among the 1,396 ranked research universities, according to the Times Higher Education survey. This was UP’s fourth year in the rankings.

    Good luck and congratulations in advance to all aspiring Isko and Iska!
