UPCAT Results 2018-2019
MANILA, Philippines - The results for the University of the Philippines - College Admission Test (UPCAT) for Academic Year 2018-2019 is expected to be released online 5-6 months after the exams or between March and April 2018. The list of passers will be available in the links below once results have been released.

UPCAT was administered on October 21-22, 2017 in at least 76 test centers nationwide including the different UP campuses and other designated schools.
In the latest post from UP system facebook page, they confirmed that results will be released between March and April.

"For this year's UPCAT results, follow the UPCAT - U.P. System Facebook page and check its website https://upcat.up.edu.ph/ between March to April 2018. A list of UP Qualifiers from your school will be sent to your principal. Individual notices will also be sent to all examinees."

UPDATE (April 11, 2018) From UP admin  -
The results of the 2018 University of the Philippines College Admissions Test—popularly known as UPCAT—will be released by the end of the month, according to UP Vice President for Public Affairs Jose Dalisay Jr. Responding to mounting inquiries and complaints from the public about the reported delay in releasing the exam results, Prof. Dalisay cited an earlier statement by the Office of Admissions giving a range of March to April for the timing of the release.

“There’s no delay,” Dalisay stressed. “Our Office of Admissions announced to UPCAT applicants, during the exam, in its website, in its Facebook UPCAT Official posts, and in the UPCAT application portal, that the results will be released sometime in March or April given the very large number of applicants and the postponement of the examination from August to October in response to the demand of public schools. It’s taking time, but we’re making doubly sure that the results are accurate and fair.”

The UPCAT is taken yearly by graduating high school students in the Philippines seeking entry into the national university. More than 103,000 applied to take the exams last October, out of whom more than 80,000 actually took the exams. Of these takers, some 14,000 will be accepted into one of UP’s eight constituent universities, for a passing rate of about 17 percent.

“We acknowledge the great anticipation and anxiety felt by both parents and students at this time of the year,” Dalisay said. “But it’s ultimately for their benefit that UP is striving for accuracy in every step of the process, particularly in the computation of the applicant’s high school grades, which are validated twice to ensure consistency and integrity. We can’t afford to make mistakes in haste, especially given that entrance to UP is one of the greatest privileges a young Filipino can receive.”

Under UP’s complicated but well-studied admission rules, the results of the UPCAT exam itself make up just 60 percent of an applicant’s University Predicted Grade or UPG, an assessment of the student’s likelihood of succeeding in UP. The balance is made up for by an averaging of the applicant’s high school grades, plus a small plus or minus to encourage economic, social, and geographical diversity.

“We’ve also had to adjust to the changes brought about by K-12. We had very few applicants during the K-12 transition years, so processing and releasing results was much faster then.”

Dalisay revealed that about 60 trained staff members are working overtime to get the results out soon. Aware that other universities are already requiring nonrefundable deposits from prospective students also awaiting the UPCAT results, Dalisay explained that “Unfortunately we have no control over the academic calendars of other schools, and cannot be rushed by those calendars. On the other hand, if the students can wait and do get into UP, they can look forward to many years of quality, tuition-free higher education.” UP shifted to a new calendar two years ago, with first-semester classes opening in August.

UP was recently ranked 156th among Asia’s top 200 universities, according to the Times Higher Education survey, largely on the strength of its research citations. While it has applied a socialized tuition scheme for many decades now, UP led other state universities and colleges last year by implementing full free tuition ahead of the signing of the Universal Access to Quality Tertiary Education Act or the free tuition law.

Here is the list of passers for UPCAT SY 2018-2019.

The UPCAT is consists of 4 subtests: Language Proficiency (English and Filipino), Science, Math and Reading Comprehension (English and Filipino). Standardized UPCAT scores are combined with the weighted average of 3 years of high school final grades to determine the UP admission grade.

Passers of UPCAT are screened for acceptance into one of the degree programs they chose. Different grade predictors are used for different programs. Campus qualifiers are ranked according to the degree program predictor. Top-ranking qualifiers are accepted according to the number of slots available for that program.

Good luck and congratulations in advance to all aspiring Isko and Iska!
