UP Waitlist/Reconsideration Process

Lulubusin ko na :)  Pati recon at waitlist, post ko na.

Like what is stated on the UPCAT results web pages, here’s what you need to do if your name is NOT on the passers list:

WHAT IF I DO NOT QUALIFY FOR A CAMPUS?

If you do not qualify to any of your campus choices, you have several options:

FIRST : You can try other UP campuses if:
1. your rating is within their posted cut-off, and
2. they still have available slots.

Present your Non-Qualifier’s Slip (which will be sent to you in the mail and which will show your admission rating) to the Registrar’s Office of the campus you want to enter. However, there is no guarantee of acceptance as each campus makes its own decisions according to its own criteria.

SECOND : If no UP campus can accommodate you, you can enroll in a college or university other than UP. After earning 33 academic units with a weighted average of 2.00 or better on the UP marking system, you can apply for transfer into a UP campus. Again, each campus has its own rules on transfer and accepts only a limited number of transfer students. Information regarding transfer to UP may be obtained from the Office of the University Registrar of the respective UP campuses.

Let’s focus on the FIRST scenario.  So what are the cut-offs of the UP campuses? Using a scale of 1.000-5.000,  with 1.000 being the highest and 5.000 being the lowest, here they are:

UP Diliman: 2.2 (no waitlist/recon)
UP Manila: 2.285 – 2.5
UP Baguio: 2.659 – 2.574
UP Tacloban: 2.7 – 2.7
UP Cebu: 2.7 – 2.7
UP Iloilo: 2.7 – 2.7
UP Mindanao: 2.75 – 2.75
UP Los Banos: 2.42 – 2.8

UPCAT Result 2012

This is IT!  THIZ IZ REALLY IZ IT IZ IT!  This is the day that the Lord has made where about 10,000 high school seniors are rejoicing, but around 60,000 are in sorrow.

UPCAT Result 2012

I feel both.  In fact, I feel everything that UPCAT takers have felt today.  When I heard that the UPCAT results are out, I got excited and anxious, and couldn’t wait to check it out.  But before I was able to, a mom of my student last summer called me.  She told me that her son passed the UPCAT, and thanked me profusely.  You see, I talked to this mom just yesterday.  She was worried that her son might not pass the UPCAT, but grateful that I personally assisted her son prior to the UPCAT.  Her son is very diligent and really smart, but seemingly has problems when taking standardized tests under time pressure.  I could not bear it if he didn’t pass the UPCAT, thus I went the extra mile to assist him weeks before the UPCAT.  And now, he did pass the UPCAT!  Praise God!  So I was very happy.  My happiness furthered when I saw the several messages akin to this on the BRAIN TRAIN Facebook Fan Page:
