The University of the Philippines (UP) is the national university of the Philippines and is considered as the premier university in the country. To be admitted in the university, one has to take the UP College Admission Test (UPCAT). The UPCAT is a 5 - hour examination consisting of 4 subtests: Language Proficiency (English and Filipino), Science, Math and Reading Comprehension (English and Filipino).
Every year, there are at least 70,000 senior students who take the UPCAT and the passing rate is more or less 16%. In August 2013, approximately 83,000 applicants took the examination and only 13,100 college aspirants passed. Aside from its low passing rate, the UPCAT has a reputation of being the most difficult college entrance examination in the country. However, you can still have an edge among other applicants.
