The day for PUPCET on January 29 is getting nearer and nearer. I know that many of PUPCET examinees are already nervous for the upcoming exams. The large number of comments I received on my post, Tips for PUPCET, is a proof of this. Many PUPCET examinees are asking for tips, leaks and answers. I guess it high time to give PUPCET examinees some important reminders before January 29 comes. Here are they are:

1. Reduce your anxiety - Many graduating high school students wanted to enter the Polytechnic University of the Philippines (PUP) because of its low tuition fee. The competition is high that is why the anxiety of PUPCET examinees are also high.

Giving in to anxiety will never help you in passing the PUPCET. Anxiety gives unnecessary stress to your brain and it will surely affect your performance when taking the entrance exam. So, it is important to reduce anxiety and focus more on the positive side of things. One thing that you can do is to relax a bit in your reviews. Don't be too hard on yourself.

2. Always check the PUP Website for updates. PUP is gearing up on the use of online resources to improve its services to the students and the public. Important announcement are placed by the PUP admin on the PUP website. Thus, important announcements regarding the PUPCET will also be placed on the website.

3. Don't forget your PUPCET slip and prepare the things that you will use for the exams. Never forget to bring your PUPCET slip because you will not allowed to take the PUPCET if you don't have it. You should also bring your school ID or other IDs that can be used for identification purposes. 

4. Have a good sleep the night before the exam day. Your brain needs a good rest so that it will perform well during the PUPCET. Being sleepy during the exam may result to a low grade that will bar your entry to PUP.

5. Travel early – Expect heavy traffic at PUPCET testing centers, specifically PUP Santa Mesa campus, on the day of the exam. So, it is advisable that you go to PUPCET testing centers at least an hour before the exam. Running to the PUPCET testing center to reach it right on time is not a good idea to start your exam.

Do you want to pass the PUPCET, then I suggest that you heed these reminders of mine.

    Nakalista na sa article na ito kung ano ang dapat mong gawin before the exam. During the exam naman, ang mahalaga mong gawin ay huwag kabahan para naman makasagot ka nang ayos.
