I’m reposting what I’ve posted on my earlier blog entry, “Pasa ba ang Pending? Eh ang Degree Program with Available Slot?” And Other UPCAT Results-Related Questions. These are actually my replies to the questions posted under the comments section of that entry, based on the answers given to me by my friend and niece. I realized that despite my assurances that those that are pending are still passers and already have slots, many are still scared (or perhaps too excited). So to, hopefully, appease you, here are my friend’s and niece’s kwentos about their personal experiences:
PENDING CASE. My classmate was also pending when she passed the UPCAT. I don’t remember her panicking–we knew she PASSED. She just told me that she’s annoyed there’s the word “pending” across her name on the passers’ list. I asked her to recount how she resolved her “pending case”, and here’s what she said:
Hi Dewmaine, di ko na matandaan kung ano yung kulang na requirement sakin, si mommy kase nagayos. . What I do remember is that hindi na ‘ko ininterview whatsoever.
Pero yung youngest sister ko, pending din yun sa Diliman, birth certificate ata kulang.
Sorry for the unclear answers. It’s been soooooo long ago
See? But I don’t blame you guys…parang nakakatakot nga namang pakinggan ‘yung “pending case”, parang may crime kang ginawa eh, haha! Parang UP is saying, “Oo, pasa ka pero suspect ka sa isang grave offense and until you prove you’re not guilty, we don’ guarantee we will accept you!” Di ba? Sana ibahin na lang ng UP ang tawag.
DEGREE PROGRAM WITH AVAILABLE SLOT. This was my cousin’s case last year. She’s now a freshie at UPLB, BS Biology. In her UPCAT application form, the courses she listed were: BS Biology (1st choice) and BS Chemsitry (2nd choice). Here’s her story:
‘Pag po dumating na po yung letter na galing sa campus na pinasahan nila, tinatanong po dun yung [new] 1st and 2nd desired course choices nila. Ang inilagay ko po bio at chem pa rin [respectively, like on her application form]. Tapos ime-mail po ulit yung letter dun sa campus. Ino-notify po after a month kung pasok po dun sa isa sa nilagay mo po na courses. Kung after one month wala pa din po, pwede i-email ang registrar [ng campus] para tanungin po kung ano’ng course ang ibinigay nila for you.
In my case po, natagalan po yung pag-notify kaya in-email ko po yung registrar para ma-approve po yung course. May cases din po na sa mga inilagay mong course [new], wala pa ding slot. Kaya po kailangan ma-approve ASAP.
Ano OK na ba people? Hope I‘ve finally appeased you. When you resolve your issues, please post your stories here too so we could help future UPCAT passers.
Tell me what you think!
