We've just released a new UPCAT Infographic for the University of the Philippines, complete with statistics on the last admissions cycle. Mentioned in it are the following:
- UP's overall acceptance rate is around 16% out of roughly 83,000 applicants
- UP DIliman's acceptance rate is even harsher. Only 4.7% of applicants get in.
- 30% of accepted students are from public schools
- 20% are from science high schools
- An astonishing 50% came from private high schools
- Only about 2 out of every 3 students offered admission in UP Diliman eventually attend.
- The remaining 33% of students head towards other universities, possibly due to financial constraints, generous scholarships, course choice, or personal preference.
