The most-awaited application period for the 2024 University of the Philippines College Admission Test (UPCAT) will officially start on Wednesday.

UPCAT will resume this year after being postponed due to the Covid-19 pandemic. 

UP said in an advisory that eligible applicants should submit their Form 1 from March 8 to April 15, 2023, and take the exam. The exam will be conducted physically on June 3 and 4, 2023 in multiple testing centers nationwide.

UP also advised applicants to revisit the UPCAT portal in Sept. 2023 to fill out their grades in Form 2B and submit a hard copy of their Form 137.

Successful applicants will be accepted in the first semester of the academic year 2024-2025.

“For inquiries, you may visit the online help desk starting today from 3 p.m. to 7 p.m. and during the application period from Mondays to Saturdays, 10 a.m. to 7 p.m. (room) and 10 a.m. to 9 p.m. (chat and emails),” the university said.

UPCAT is composed of four subtests: language proficiency (in English and Filipino), reading comprehension (in English and Filipino), science, and mathematics.
