Expect college students to be biting their nails all day today, July 15, as the University of the Philippines releases its highly anticipated admissions test results beginning at 8am.
However, to prevent the system from crashing, results are being released in batches according to the first letter of applicants’ surnames. The first batch, for those with surnames beginning in the letters A to F, will find out their fate from 8am to 10:59am, followed by those with surnames G to M at 11am to 1:59pm.
Applicants with surnames beginning with the letters N to S will get their results at 2pm to 4:59pm, and those at the end of the alphabet, T to Z, will be put out of their misery at 5pm to 7:59pm. Beginning at 8pm, it’s a free-for-all with all results released.
Hopeful freshmen-to-be need to log on to the UPCA portal with their registered email addresses. Those who need assistance, including people who have changed their email addresses in the interim, may contact the UP Office of Admissions at firstname.lastname@example.org.
