For many students, the thought of applying to colleges can be stressful and overwhelming. Most feel considerable pressure to perform well in their college admission tests, especially when their future education and professional goals are at stake. It doesn’t help that passing these tests can be quite difficult.
Eunice Diane T. Santiago of the Honorato C. Perez Sr. Memorial Science High School learned about the college entrance test review program of AHEAD Tutorial & Review Center from her cousins and friends. She enrolled right away because of AHEAD’s test-based program.
“The college review course motivated me,” she said. Despite the nerve-racking preparation for the University of the Philippines College Admission Test (UPCAT), she now looks at the review and entrance test in a positive way. “It taught me to believe in myself!”
Danica Camille L. Yu of Bethel International School observed how her older siblings reviewed at AHEAD, and she liked the program immediately. She liked the system and how the students were taught, so she was confident the program was right for her. “The test-based program is accurate. It is a good system for reviewing,” she shared. “It allows us to practice on something that is almost like the real entrance tests.”
But it’s more than just a review for college hopefuls like Deanne Colobong of St. Scholastica’s College. Deanne was able to pick up valuable life skills, too. “I learned how to manage my time properly, and also to prioritize my daily activities,” she said.
“I learned Mind Mapping and Smart Reading techniques,” said Sacred Heart Academy student Keannie May Angela Tangente. They were not only useful for the college entrance tests, they helped with her school lessons as well.
“These techniques helped condition my mind to stay focused and they helped me comprehend things faster,” she said. Keannie also learned the importance of good health and the value of positive thinking.
Benjamin John I. Simbulan, a student from Our Lady of Peace School, said he learned a lot from the lecturers. “The program as a whole is satisfying and a fun experience,” he said.
He added, “It made me confident, and made me think differently.”
“It helped me to be more determined at taking a shot at the top universities,” said Shaira Roleda, a student from St. Therese Educational Foundation in Tacloban. She explained that the simulated exams helped her to understand the actual exams better. She also found the lecturers very animated.
Danica said, “Compared to other review centers, AHEAD’s system and way of teaching is helpful. It actually lets the students learn!”
