What You Need to Pass The TUP College Entrance Test

The Technological University of the Philippines or also known as TUP  is one of the pioneering providers of industrial engineering education in the Philippines. What started as Manila Trade School in 1901 has flourished into one of the country’s go-to institutions for vocational and technological courses.

Though Technological University of the Philippines has 5 satellite schools nationwide, it still keeps its entrance exam centralized. So, that means the official venue for the TUPCET is in its flagship branch along Ermita, Manila.

Here are 3 easy steps to start your educational journey with TUP!

PS: If you don’t know how to get there, here’s a list of ways you can travel there through public transport.

Step 3: Take The Test

Last thing for you to remember is to show up to your assigned date, time, and venue. Take three deep breaths and take the entrance exam as best as you can. After the exam, wait for TUP to post the results on their official website and start prepping for the next 5 years!

Sure, TUP is known for producing brilliant engineers. But if engineering isn’t your thing? No need to fret because TUP’s got a lot of different academic programs for you to choose from.

Choosing a college is just as important as choosing a course. It has to be a place you find yourself able to learn and grow.
