MANILA - (Updated) Just in time for Christmas, the perfect gift arrived for those aspiring to be "Iskolar ng Bayan" as the results of the University of the Philippines College Admission Test (Upcat) for the academic year 2014-2015 was released Monday.

From the 83,000 examiners, more than 13,000 passed the entrance tests.

The country's premier state university offers a wide range of degree programs. It has eight constituent campuses in Baguio, Pampanga, Manila, Los Banos, Cebu, Visayas, Mindanao and Open University.

Every year, almost 80,000 high school graduates aspire to enroll in UP but only around 18 percent pass the entrance tests.

The Upcat results came out two months earlier than the usual.

Joi Tatiana Cue, an examinee from Baguio said through her Twitter account that passing the Upcat is one of the best Christmas gifts she has ever received.

The exam includes subtests on language proficiency, reading comprehension, mathematics, and science in English and Filipino. It takes five hours to finish the exam and it can only be taken once. (Sunnex)
