They are now posted at the Blue Eagle Gym and will be accessible online later at 8 pm.

Good luck to all those who took the test!:)

  • congratulations to those who passed :D
  • I have yet to know someone who failed this test...

    no amount of congratulatory remark awaits to those who passed this test.
  • Just sharing --

    There's actually a thread in peyups.com devoted to UPians who did not pass ACET. Here's part of the thread.

    hye ok lng yun!!
    bakit? afraid of what others would tell?
    at least you have the guts to take the ACET!!
    and you have tried to and have done your best!!
    siguro kung tinuloy ko yung pag-take ko ng ACET, i'm a failure, too.!!

    hehehe

    pwede yan! madami akong friends na ganyan.. di pumasa ateneo pero pumasa UP! (wierd nga e...)

    in fairness, mas mahirap yung ACET kesa sa UPCAT... (for me... UPCAT kasi parang 'paontian ng mali'...)

    Psst, ako, di ako pumasa ng ACET. Wait-listed lang. Inamin ko, kinabahan ako dun, dahil di ko rin inaasahan na papasa pala ako sa UP...

    Sabihin mo pag nakuha mo na resulta ng UPCAT ha? Babatiin kita. Good luck!

    here is a tip: get two non-quota courses, yung tingin mo ikaw lang ang me gustong kumuha. tapos once na nasa UP ka na, madali na magshift.

    mas mahirap ang ACET kasi mabilis ang time sa bawat exams eh. pero like UPCAT, pareho silang right minus wrong. anyway, i passed both kasi mabilis ako magbasa eh...

    don't despair too much.. ACET is really difficult. it's more difficult than UPCAT.

    just pray really hard that you get into UP... i'll pray for you too.

    good luck!

    ACET ang pinaka mahirap na entrance exam (of course, opinion ko yun!) Of course may pag-asa ka pumasa ng UP no! Magic ata ang UPCAT e. Great judge of character (ows? )

    oh. so it's true. orgmate ko kasi yung brother mo and in fact, almost magkapitbahay lang kami dito sa QC (peace po Kuya) :smile: I believe na you're from Region IV, I don't know kung mas mababa yung quota niyo kaysa sa NCR (ang alam ko kasi hindi pare-pareho) and besides mas mahirap nga ang ACET. pero malaki pa rin ang chances mo. Good Luck! malapit nang lumabas ang results!!!

    Nyahahaha! Pareho tayo!

    I didn't pass ACET too. I think it was because of the economic status issue. Kasi di ba they asked you in the form about your parents' income and the scholarship stuff, siguro proirity nila dun are the really top passers who really need the scholarship. Parang ganto kasi eh ang 3 type ng mga kumukuha ng ACET eh:

    1)sobrang talino pero kukulangin sa pambayad sa tuition;
    2)average ang talino pero kukulangin sa pambayad sa tuition;
    3)hindi matalino pero may pambayad sa tuition.

    Sa palagay ko, ang ipapasa lang sa ACET eh yung nasa category 1 & 3. The thing is, nasa category 2 ako. Bakit ko nasabi yan? Kasi sa class naming kumuha ng ACET, may classmates akong nasa type 1 & 3. Pumasa naman sila. Hypothesis ko lang yan.

    Pero pressure talaga ang test.

    Di naman ibig sabihin di ka pumasa sa 'teneo e di ka na papasa sa UP. Sa totoo lang, madali ang UPCAT, mahirap nga lang makapasok kasi siyempre marami kang ka-agaw sa slots. E puro sayans at mga torian ang kasabay mo. Goodluck na lang. Pero kung pasado ka ng ACET, medyo malaki na rin chance mo makuha sa UP kasi mahirap daw talaga siya. Sorry.

    i dunno...mas nadalian kasi ako sa ACET eh. umiyak talaga ako after nung UPCAT. so parang naging basis ko na rin na pag bagsak ako sa ACET, wala nang hope sa UPCAT. The thing is, later on ko lang na-realize na you're not the same person everytime you take a different exam...it all depends on your disposition when you took the test. Malay mo nung ACET na-bobo ka, pero nung UPCAT, ang genius mo.

    One thing a lot of people would have to realize, questionable talaga ang sistema ng admissions ng ateneo. it's highly possible that a lot of people paid their way in---at your expense. so don't despair.

    i'm not trying to accuse ateneo though. but I've heard a number of cases.

    That's not exactly true you know. Some people pass the UPCAT without passing the ACET. They are totally different exams.
    Watch out! It's quite possible that some of my best mistakes haven't yet been made.

    for what it's worth..

    valedictorian namin hindi pumasa sa DLSU tulad niya, hindi din ako doon pumasa, also di rin ako pumasa sa Ateneo.

    i told myself na pagnakagraduate ko ng highschool, kukuha ko ng kahit anong entrance exam. medyo wala na akong hope na makapasa pa ng UP.

    pero i did, grabeh, laking tuwa ko.

    Precious,
    Did you get into a quota course? Good for you. I say, you're lucky because that isn't a trend. The statistics I got among the top 4 universities say so.


    Other peeps that over-reacted to my previous post:
    I’m talking of her odds to get onto the B.S. Psychology program. The B.S. Psych is one of the most difficult courses in UP Diliman to get into along with BAA, BA, ECE and Com Eng'g. or, unless you guys want me to please her and I’ll lie. Is that what you want?

    neverOK,
    I'm not against your hope to get into UP. If you’re offered and you’ll accept, you are very much welcome here.
    I know how you feel right now – - your anticipation to be among the bests and all that, but so are the several thousand aspirants who are as anxious to be admitted in the college. Most of them are in fact top 1 of their graduating class from exclusive high schools or within the top 5 from a specialized science high school.

    Despite the very stiff competition to get into UP Diliman, I say, you still have a chance to be admitted onto a non-quota program. But for BS Psych, your chance bleak, and so I suggest, don’t expect for it anymore. The ACET is a good gauge. All right?

  • Congratulations to the ACET passers. I was one of those who took ACET last year, unfortunately, I did not make it. I think I was not in condition during the day of the exam. I was intimidated by the time pressure. I am now in UP, taking up BAA. Swerte-swertehan lang talaga. Ironically, my parents are both graduates of UP but they wanted me to study in Ateneo. As far as I am concerned, nasa tao yan, not in the school. I would have wanted to study in Ateneo but I have no regrets ending up in UP. Both schools are excellent! Congratulations again, neighbors!
  • For those who did not pass, don't worry. It's not the end of the world. Like you, I failed ACET when I took it in 2001. I passed UP but I chose to enrol in DLSU and did very well in my freshmen year, then I transferred to Ateneo in my sophomore year. Just try your best to do well, then apply for a transfer like I did. Believe in yourself!

    To those who passed -- Congratulations!
  • Congratulations to the ACET passers for being one of the Chosen Ones!

    Beware of jealous sourgrapers, particularly those who failed ACET and claim to be studying in Warwick, and, yet, are struggling with simple subject-verb agreements and elementary spelling. As one of them would like to say ---- "Just breeze yourselves for an exhilarating experience." :lol:
  • Passing ACET is the easiest part. Becoming an Atenean and living up to your responsibilities is the more difficult task. With power come great responsibilities --- I want to share this article with you, the future Ateneans.

    The responsibility of the rich and Georgetown-educated
    Jan. 09, 2005

    http://money.inq7.net/topstories/view_tops...01&dd=09&file=3

    Tina Arceo-Dumlao
    Inquirer News Service


    THE price of greatness is responsibility, Winston Churchill said.

    For John J. DeGioia, president of Georgetown University, the main responsibility of the "great" alumni and students that pass through the campus of the United States' oldest Jesuit-run university is to take a good hard look at how they could join in the effort to rescue half of the world's population from poverty's deadly grip.

    "This is the challenge we pose on all our students. How do we respond to those of us who live on less than $2 a day?" DeGioia, the first layperson to become president of Georgetown University, tells the Inquirer.

    DeGioia says answering the call for help of the half of the world's population living below the poverty line was the greatest challenge facing leaders today.

    Georgetown University was founded in 1789, the same year as the US Constitution was drafted. It produced many of those leaders that are in exalted positions to lead the fight against poverty.

    Three of these leaders first came to Georgetown in September 1964: a young man from the city of San Salvador; a young man from a small town outside Texarkana, Arkansas; and a young woman from Manila.

    They later became presidents of their countries.

    Alfredo Cristiani was elected president of El Salvador in 1989; Bill Clinton, of the United States in 1992; and Gloria Macapagal-Arroyo, of the Philippines in 2001.

    DeGioia says it was the university's responsibility to provide students with the right skills and values to encourage them to take active roles in improving the lives of the less privileged.

    Be men and women for others, so to speak.

    DeGioia said Georgetown shares the burden of that responsibility with other Jesuit-run institutions of higher learning, such as the Ateneo de Manila University.

    He brought that point home several times last week when DeGioia gave a series of talks to the Ateneo community. Ateneo president Bienvenido Nebres S.J. sits on the board of Georgetown University.

    Like most of the students of Georgetown, DeGioia says, students of the Ateneo come from the elite and have easy access to the means and the opportunities to get ahead in life.

    The call is to encourage them to share what they have with others who have no access to the same tools that come easily to them, once they get out of school and build careers.

    Chances are, by virtue of their privileged position, many will become bank presidents, top lawyers, doctors and economists. But will they stay in their glass towers and turn a deaf ear to pleas for help, or use their knowledge to help others?

    Georgetown hopes that by living the tradition of Jesuit education, the bulk of its students would take the more difficult, but morally superior, road.

    "All of our students have to exercise competence and develop themselves," De Gioia says, "but they have to acknowledge those who don't have access."

    About 47 percent of the world's population -- three billion people -- live on less than $2 a day, DeGioia said in a speech at the Ateneo Professional Schools.

    The very poorest of the poor, mostly living in Sub-Saharan Africa, live on less than $1 a day, he said. In Botswana, people are expected to live up to only 39 years old, and by 2010 that lifespan will go down to 27 years because of poverty, he said.

    He further related: About 2.4 billion people in the world have no access to adequate sanitation. Nearly one billion or 15 percent of the world's population cannot read nor write and as much as 7 percent will be infected with diseases such as HIV/AIDS, malaria or tuberculosis.

    "As I said to the undergraduates, this is the world that awaits you; these are the challenges that you will face," DeGioia said in his speech.

    But because of the quality education that college graduates get, they are in an enviable position to alter those staggering numbers, especially so for the privileged students of the Ateneo and Georgetown, he said.

    "This is your destiny by virtue of the unique and privileged opportunity you have to be here," DeGioia told the students. "You have a responsibility to ensure that you are prepared to respond to the demands of justice in our world."

    bakit? afraid of what others would tell?
    at least you have the guts to take the ACET!!
    and you have tried to and have done your best!!
    siguro kung tinuloy ko yung pag-take ko ng ACET, i'm a failure, too.!!

    in fairness, mas mahirap yung ACET kesa sa UPCAT... (for me... UPCAT kasi parang 'paontian ng mali'...)

    here is a tip: get two non-quota courses, yung tingin mo ikaw lang ang me gustong kumuha. tapos once na nasa UP ka na, madali na magshift.

    mas mahirap ang ACET kasi mabilis ang time sa bawat exams eh. pero like UPCAT, pareho silang right minus wrong. anyway, i passed both kasi mabilis ako magbasa eh...

    Nyahahaha! Pareho tayo!

    I didn't pass ACET too. I think it was because of the economic status issue. Kasi di ba they asked you in the form about your parents' income and the scholarship stuff, siguro proirity nila dun are the really top passers who really need the scholarship. Parang ganto kasi eh ang 3 type ng mga kumukuha ng ACET eh:

    1)sobrang talino pero kukulangin sa pambayad sa tuition;
    2)average ang talino pero kukulangin sa pambayad sa tuition;
    3)hindi matalino pero may pambayad sa tuition.

    Sa palagay ko, ang ipapasa lang sa ACET eh yung nasa category 1 & 3. The thing is, nasa category 2 ako. Bakit ko nasabi yan? Kasi sa class naming kumuha ng ACET, may classmates akong nasa type 1 & 3. Pumasa naman sila. Hypothesis ko lang yan.

    Pero pressure talaga ang test.

    Di naman ibig sabihin di ka pumasa sa 'teneo e di ka na papasa sa UP. Sa totoo lang, madali ang UPCAT, mahirap nga lang makapasok kasi siyempre marami kang ka-agaw sa slots. E puro sayans at mga torian ang kasabay mo. Goodluck na lang. Pero kung pasado ka ng ACET, medyo malaki na rin chance mo makuha sa UP kasi mahirap daw talaga siya. Sorry.

    i dunno...mas nadalian kasi ako sa ACET eh. umiyak talaga ako after nung UPCAT. so parang naging basis ko na rin na pag bagsak ako sa ACET, wala nang hope sa UPCAT. The thing is, later on ko lang na-realize na you're not the same person everytime you take a different exam...it all depends on your disposition when you took the test. Malay mo nung ACET na-bobo ka, pero nung UPCAT, ang genius mo.

    One thing a lot of people would have to realize, questionable talaga ang sistema ng admissions ng ateneo. it's highly possible that a lot of people paid their way in---at your expense. so don't despair.

    i'm not trying to accuse ateneo though. but I've heard a number of cases.

    for what it's worth..

    valedictorian namin hindi pumasa sa DLSU tulad niya, hindi din ako doon pumasa, also di rin ako pumasa sa Ateneo.

    i told myself na pagnakagraduate ko ng highschool, kukuha ko ng kahit anong entrance exam. medyo wala na akong hope na makapasa pa ng UP.

    pero i did, grabeh, laking tuwa ko.

    Precious,
    Did you get into a quota course? Good for you. I say, you're lucky because that isn't a trend. The statistics I got among the top 4 universities say so.


    Other peeps that over-reacted to my previous post:
    I’m talking of her odds to get onto the B.S. Psychology program. The B.S. Psych is one of the most difficult courses in UP Diliman to get into along with BAA, BA, ECE and Com Eng'g. or, unless you guys want me to please her and I’ll lie. Is that what you want?

    neverOK,
    I'm not against your hope to get into UP. If you’re offered and you’ll accept, you are very much welcome here.
    I know how you feel right now – - your anticipation to be among the bests and all that, but so are the several thousand aspirants who are as anxious to be admitted in the college. Most of them are in fact top 1 of their graduating class from exclusive high schools or within the top 5 from a specialized science high school.

    Despite the very stiff competition to get into UP Diliman, I say, you still have a chance to be admitted onto a non-quota program. But for BS Psych, your chance bleak, and so I suggest, don’t expect for it anymore. The ACET is a good gauge. All right?
