A few weeks from now, thousands of students will be trooping to the University of the Philippines in Diliman and other testing centers nationwide to take the UPCAT.
Yes, the UPCAT, one of the most competitive entrance examinations in the country. But more than an entrance exam, the UPCAT may determine the very course of your future. If you are fortunate enough to pass the UPCAT, then you will have the privilege of studying in one of the country’s most prestigious universities, working with the brightest students of your generation.
If you are stressed out, well, it’s understandable.
If you had taken AHEAD Tutorial & Review Center’s month-long test-based review program, however, you are probably more confident about taking the UPCAT. For weeks, you have studied materials that are more likely to come out in the actual exam. You have had the opportunity to have difficult concepts explained to you by the country’s best tutors. You have practiced taking simulated exams under time pressure, so you have a feel of what’s to come.
AHEAD reviewees have been taught how to speed read and mind map. Speed reading will help you during those reading comprehension tests where you must be able to absorb huge chunks of material in a short amount of time. Mind mapping will help you understand and memorize complicated concepts.
If you joined our one-day refresher course, then you are more than ready to take the UPCAT.
Of course, we still encourage you to go through your notes and solve math equations. But please, don’t forget to take care of yourself. You don’t want to get yourself sick with anxiety. Remember that a student who’s in the pink of health will do better during an exam.
Sleep well. Eat right. Pray for guidance.
You can do this!
