Many students have been clamoring to take the SAT and see their chances of making it in the world's best universities. You've prepared, you've worked hard, but how do you sign up anyways?
There's only one widely used way for international students in the Philippines to register for the SAT, and that's through the internet. We've enumerated the steps for your ease:
1. Visit the College Board SAT website, sat.collegeboard.org, and click on the Register button
2. Select your testing center, and testing date. In the Philippines, it's usually just British School Manila, Brent School, and International School Manila
3. Pay for registration fees with your credit card. Unfortunately, there are no fee waivers or discounts for foreign students who are undergoing financial hardship. Taking the SAT last year cost over $70, or roughly 3000 pesos.
4. Select the colleges that will receive your scores. The College Board allows you to send your scores for free to 4 colleges that you listed during registration. Additional colleges will cost about $11.50, or around 500 pesos each.
5. Print out your registration ticket. You can't take the test without it!
Here's a file containing some of the most common mistakes that students make when it comes to English grammar in the UPCAT, the ACET and the other entrance tests.
At first, they do seem intuitive, and you might even say that they're even too obvious to study, but if you did our UPCAT Practice Test, AND made some mistakes in the grammar portion, you can trace them back to these. Most of the questions we posed there are merely modifications of the rules listed in the file, and we'll leave it to you to find out where exactly you went wrong.
You can do more practice with our ACET Practice Test's English portion, or the SAT's more intense Writing portion. If you do well in either, doing well in UPCAT Language Proficiency is more or less assured.

So we know that most of you have difficulty in the section that, well, everybody has difficulty in. Math. In response, we made a reviewer to help you get on overview of skills you need to know before taking the UPCAT, but reviewers are never enough. You need practice.

Thanks to EntranceUniversity, you we can jointly provide you with practice material that is focused on the Mathematics section of the UPCAT. It is quite long and comprehensive, so just like with our UPCAT Practice Test, allot enough time to do it. An hour and thirty minutes to be precise.
