If there’s one thing that all incoming college freshmen can agree on, it’s that preparing for an entrance exam is like riding the emotional roller coaster—it’s confusing, stressful, and nerve-wracking. But studying for the “Big Day” is not the only thing we college applicants struggle with; usually, it’s when we start counting down the days until the release of exam results.
And just in time for the University of the Philippines College Admission Test (UPCAT), one of the most anticipated college entrance exams in the country, examinees took to social media to express their pre-exam jitters.

To all UPCAT takers, whether you pass or fail, remember that grades are not a good measurement of who you’ll become in the future.
Good luck and stay strong!
