Shifting from che to nigs upd 2015

Hi I'm currently a freshie taking BS Interior Design (which was my 2nd choice) and I really want to shift to BS Geology.
I want to know what are my chances getting into BS Geology since my current course is not so related to BS Geology. I'm planning to take Nat Sci 2 (requirement for shifting to BS Geology) and idk if I should take my majors... Is it possible to Return to my current program if I don't get accepted?
And some tips on shifting to BS Geology :)
THANK YOU :)

    Dati akong Social Work pero lumipat sa Geology. Dati madali makapasok sa geology (mabibilang mo lang sa kamay mo gumagraduate taon-taon), pero ngayon medyo popular course na siya at marami na students (I heard 2 class na ang isang high major subject). Itanong mo sa college mo kung tatanggapin ka pa nila if things don't work out sa shifting mo. Because in my experience some colleges dismiss their students if they try to shift out.
  • Oh ganun po ba :o then I have to study hard to increase my chances of getting accepted :) Thanks po :)

    Sabi nga po most likely ganun ang mangyayari... so I kunin ko nlng po ang Nat Sci 2 next sem :) sabi po sa shifting requirements I need to have a grade of 2.00 or better in Nat Sci 2 and in all Math and science courses taken... so hindi po sila magbabase sa GWA ko but only those mentioned? Also any tips po for Nat sci or anything related to Geology? Thank you :)

    Actually some colleges dismiss their students if they take subjects outside their curriculum. Siguro kung decided ka na na lumipat, sabihin mo na agad sa adviser mo, and take the necessary subjects. Or kung nagdadalawang isip ka pa and you want to cover all bases, take common subjects between the 2 courses. Masuwerte ako, mabait yung adviser ko sa SW at pinayagan ako kumuha ng mga subjects outside, pero yun lang sinabihan ako na I have to be serious about the whole thing dahil wala na balikan.

    I think hindi ka dapat nag-rerely sa minimum requirements, lalo na ngayon na competitive na ang Geology. Limited na lang ang numbers na tinatanggap so maximize your chances by getting a high GWA in addition to high grades in math and sciences.
  • thank you sir I will follow ur advice :) btw is it better if i visit Nigs for consulting? if possible kanino po or saan po ako pupunta?

    Since freshie ka pa lang naman.
    1. GEs lang muna kunin mo sa 2nd sem (including Nat Sci 2). At least safe ka. Worst case na di ka tanggapin sa NIGS, pwede ka mag-stay sa ID. Kung GE lang pati subject mo, relatively, madali pataasin ang GWA.

    2. Talk to your adviser regarding your plan. Mababait naman mga advisers since common naman talaga sa UP ang nag-shi-shift. Minsan sila pa magsa-suggest ng best option mo.

    3. Good idea din to visit NIGS. Ask for their curriculum. Baka mamaya iba pala yung ine-expect mo sa katotohanan. Hehe. Tapos make a list of all the questions you want to ask.

    4. Dati, kapag may plans to shift out, sina-suggest na magpunta sa Guidance Councilor sa Vinzon's Hall. Helpful 'to. Confirm mo kung kailangan mo pa gawin 'to. :)
  • thank you sir!! :)
  • Hello po :) so far so good naman po ang chances ko makashift :)

    Hindi po ako binigyan ng waiver ng adviser ko so pwede pa po akong bumalik incase hindi ako makashift.
    I also took Geol 1 this sem and kinuha ko na rin po *** GEs na nasa curriculum ng BS Geology.

    Sabi po sakin ng admin ng Geology sa ranking ng GWA po sila magbabase. So far GWA ko po is 1.2 and I hope I can maintain my GWA this 2nd Sem.

    plan ko po magtake ng Midyear...will they consider my midyear GWA and subjects kapag nag apply ako for shifting before next 1st sem? Thank you :)

    Depende yan kasi kung may grade ka na sa midyear. May certain window of time lang ang shifting application e. Check mo kung mag-co-coincide ang release ng midyear grades at yung shifting period. Kung mahahabol ang grade mo, malamang isama yan sa GWA computation.

    Pero kunwari dalawang subjects kinuha mo this midyear, probably itatanong lang kung kumpleto na yung grades mo. Pag isa pa lang may grade baka di na yan isama.

    get good grades. people always tend to forget that. be good at math, chem and physics.
  • Hi! I got accepted to BS Geology and will be a freshman this coming sem! Thank you all for your help I really appreciate it. :)
  • Hello! Balak ko magshift to BS Geol. Tanong ko lang kung mahirap bang makashift sa Geol? Considering na kaunti lang ang freshies na papasok sa UP next acad year, mas malaki kaya ang chance na matanggap ako? (Galing ako ng engg. Tapos na rin ako sa Math series, geol 11, physics 71 & 71.1, ge 11 at chem 16.)
