8 hilarious tweets from people who will be taking UPCAT this weekend

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.

When you need all the luck in the world to pass the UPCAT

And a little bit of positivity

When you realized that staying out too late doesn’t really help

Especially when you’re competing with 167,000 UPCAT takers

When in doubt, pray!

When you have already accepted your fate

When the stress is too much and you can’t help but “magsabi ng masasamang” words (to say bad words)

When you discovered an easy way out

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!
