UPCAT Advisory


The University of the Philippines is postponing the scheduled UPCAT Examinations this coming September 15-16, 2018 due to Typhoon Mangkhut.

UP Vice President for Public Affairs Jose Dalisay said that the postponement of the UPCAT is nationwide. "All examination centers are covered, from Luzon to Visayas, even areas that will not be directly hit by the typhoon."

The UP Office of Admissions will announce a new date as soon as possible and provide instructions to all examinees.

For those still awaiting their Test Permit, please disregard the earlier advisory that you need to go to your chosen Testing Centers on Friday, 14 September 2018 as there will be no personnel from the UP Office of Admissions to accommodate you.
