Future TIPians! Here’s what you should know about the TIP entrance exam.
As one of the best schools in the country that produced quality fresh graduates, this might be the school of your choice. Whether you are an incoming senior high or college student, going to the Technological Institute of the Philippines can be one of your dream schools.
If you are preparing for the entrance exam, below is a quick guide that can help you out in preparation for the exam.
1. Be ready for the hard Sciences.
Given that this is a school of engineering, part of their entrance exam are the hard Sciences. Prepare yourself to answer tough questions on Physics, Chemistry, or even Biology. Try to read the foundations of these sciences and the formulas of conversion that you might need.
2. Don’t forget Math.
Of course, as with every entrance exam, is the accompanying Math questions. A quick tip is not to panic. By letting your fear of equations get hold of you, time will definitely be your additional enemy. The best thing to do is memorize the formulas and equations then write them down on cue cards. Also, try to find out other ways to answer Math questions so you can find another way to finish the test quickly.
3. Read fast, understand quick.
Given the time limit, you should be able to read long passages as fast as you can. However, don’t just skip everything but try to understand each sentence as well. This can give you an additional leverage when answering the accompanying questions to these essay-kind of paragraphs.
4. Don’t leave hard to answer questions blank.
Make sure you got it all covered. Eliminate the choices that seemed unlikely and choose the best one you can pick. Try rereading the questions because some of them already have the answer.
5. If your general average is above 80, then no entrance exam for you.
You heard that right. You are an automatically TIPian if you’re general weighted average in senior high is above 80%. You can now apply for their scholarship and get your grades assessed!
