Netizens are sharing their experiences taking the entrance test to the University of the Philippines, following its first round of admission examinations on Saturday, October 20.
Held annually, UPCAT or the University of the Philippines College Admission Test, is considered one of the most competitive in the country where only 1 out 6 examinees get admitted. High school – now K-12 – students from all over the country vie for a slot to hopefully earn their way in to one of the country’s top university.
The #KwentongUPCAT topped the local Twitter trends list, with netizens tweeting their hilarious memories and sentiments on what many consider as a ‘make-or-break’ exam.
Here are some of the stories we’ve seen:
wahaha nung upcat baon ko dalawang burger tas kala ko di na ako papasa kasi nagkamantsa answer sheet ko lmao #KwentongUPCAT

Yung Mongol 2 ang required pero may naglabas ng apat na Staedtler pencils #KwentongUPCAT

A totally extra exam requires just as much effort, even with pencils.
The day of my UPCAT coincided with Game 1 of the UP-UE UAAP finals. I passed by the UP chapel to say a prayer. I looked to my left and there sitting a few pews away was Benjie Paras. As it turned out, both our prayers were answered. #KwentongUPCAT

How about scratching your classmate, instead? Priorities, bes. Okay?

Nagbukas ng baong Chicken Joy yung ka room ko sa Arki. Ayun, gutom ako kalahati ng exam.

Jabee Chicken Joy may not be the most UPCAT-friendly food.
We’ll never truly know until the results are out.
