UPCAT 2024 application opens on Wednesday

The application period for the 2024 University of the Philippines College Admission Test (UPCAT) officially opened on Wednesday.

In an advisory, UP said eligible applicants should submit their Form 1 from March 8 to April 15, 2023, and take the exam, which will be conducted physically on June 3 and 4, 2023, in various testing centers nationwide.

UPCAT is composed of four subtests: language proficiency (in English and Filipino), reading comprehension (in English and Filipino), science, and mathematics.

UP reminded applicants to revisit the UPCAT portal in September 2023 to fill out their grades in Form 2B and submit a hard copy of their Form 137.

Successful applicants will be admitted in the first semester of the academic year 2024-2025.

Current Grade 11 students who are expected to graduate from senior high school at the end of AY 2023-2024 are qualified to apply. 

"For inquiries, you may visit the online help desk starting today from 3 p.m. to 7 p.m. and during the application period from Mondays to Saturdays, 10 a.m. to 7 p.m. (room) and 10 a.m. to 9 p.m. (chat and emails)," the university said.

Applicants may check the details through the university’s online application website.

UPCAT will resume this year after being halted due to the COVID-19 pandemic. —Sundy Locus/VBL, GMA Integrated News
