9 Important Tips for PUPCET Takers

The online application for the Polytechnic University of the Philippines College Entrance Test or PUPCET is now open.

I bet that many high school students wanted to go to this prestigious university. Unfortunately, only 8,000 of the average 50,000 PUPCET examinees are admitted to PUP. That means that only 16% of the total examinees pass the PUPCET.

How to avoid being included in 86% PUPCET non-passers? I suggest that you follow these 10 PUPCET tips:

1. Study Study Study

Break your habit of not studying for quizzes and periodical exams in high school. I suggest that you study and study more. Go back to your high Math, Science, and English. Read some history and current events for the General Information part of the PUPCET coverage. 

2. Do not Over Study

Studying is good but you must make sure to have enough rest, especially the night before the exam. You need to be alert and sleepy on the day of PUPCET. 

3. Arrive Early

Thousands of students will go to PUP campus on the day of the exam. So, you must expect heavy traffic. Arrive at PUP early so you can relax a little before the exam starts.

4. Bring Your Test Permit

No test permit = no exam. PUP, of course, will help you in case that you forget your test permit but it will cause you plenty of stress. 

5. Answer What You Know First

Do not waste time on questions that you don't know the answer. Skip those items first then go back to them later. 

6. Listen to the Proctor

The PUPCET proctors will lay down the rules before the start of exam. Listen to them to avoid confusion. 

7. Don't Take the Exam on an Empty Stomach

Eat your meal (i.e. breakfast or lunch) before taking the PUPCET so you will have enough energy to last the grueling exam. You may also snacks and bottled water in the testing area. 

8. Be Mindful of the Time

PUPCET is difficult because you have to answer around 200 questions within 2 hours. Do not waste your time on difficult questions. 

9. Do not Rely on Leaked PUPCET Questions 

There may be leaked PUPCET questions being shared around before the exam. Do not rely on leaked PUPCET questions because these may be fake.

BONUS TIP: Join Online Groups

There are plenty of online groups in Facebook where PUPCET takers share tips and help each other. I suggest that you join these groups to get the latest news about PUPCET. I also suggest that you monitor the PUP Facebook page.
