The University of the Philippines College Admission Test (UPCAT) 2019 scheduled this weekend was postponed with the expected arrival of Typhoon “Ompong,” the university’s official twitter account said on Wednesday.


“The UP Office of Admissions will be postponing the administration of the UPCAT 2019 nationwide. The decision is based on consultation with UP System officials and weather experts on the latest forecast on Typhoon Ompong,” UP System, the official twitter account of UP, announced on Wednesday.

The postponement of the UPCAT was also for the safety of examinees and proctors, the UP Office of Admissions said.

“In consideration of the nationwide scope of the exam that entails synchronized travel arrangements among others which pose undue risks to both UPCAT examinees and UPCAT personnel,” it added.

UP also assured that a new date for the UPCAT will be announced soon and will also provide further instructions for the examinees. /muf
