UPCAT, which stands for University of the Philippines College Admission Test, for the Academic Year 2015-2016 was conducted last August 16 and 17, 2014 in various UPCAT test centers in the country.
"Check the UPCAT website (http://www.upcat.up.edu.ph) for announcements and posting of UPCAT Results (around January 2015). A list of qualifiers from your school will be sent to your Principal.
Individual notices will also be sent to all examinees," the UP Office of Admissions posted in the 'General Information' page of the UPCAT website.
I've been checking the page 'UPCAT Results 2015 Online' in the site since late December. It used to have the old result (UPCAT Results 2014-2015 passers), then it went inaccessible and now, as the New Year gets under way, it's up with an important announcement:
"Happy New Year to all!
UPCAT 2015-2016 Results will be posted at the Office of Admissions SOON.
Once released, you may also browse the UPCAT Results on the web through the UPCAT 2015 Results Online or its mirror sites(s) below:
STICKBREAD I.T. AND BUSINESS SOLUTIONS
Thank you very much."
With that announcement, it looks like we're so close already to knowing who UPCAT 2015-2016 passers are. (Hope it will be released before Pope Francis' visit to the Philippines. He arrives January15).
And I can already feel the excitement and nerves of those 4th year high school students who took the exam, all hoping to be admitted to the Philippines' premier university. Since it was posted, it's getting tons of hits (latest count: 75,000+ hits) from internet users who have been refreshing and refreshing the page to check if the results are posted only already.
Last year, the UPCAT Results 2014-2015 had only 13,100 passers out of over P82,000 examinees (just 13%) and it was posted online before Christmas, so much earlier than expected.
I'll be updating this page as soon as the UPCAT 2015 results become available. - Mykiru.ph
