Welcome to Lozol, prospective froshies—there’s one less thorn in your application process. De La Salle University Manila (DLSU) has waved goodbye to this year’s college entrance exams, joining several universities that have ditched the big test.
In a recent statement, DLSU announced that it will not administer college entrance exams for incoming frosh students for academic year 2021-2022 due to the pandemic. Instead of the usual DCAT (DLSU College Admission Test), admission of potential students will be based on high school records, recommendation letters and class ranking.
DLSU joined other schools that have recently shelved entrance exams for incoming students, among them Ateneo De Manila University, the University of Santo Tomas and the University of the Philippines.
Students can apply through DLSU’s site. Deadline is on Feb. 15, so get those records ready.
Now that UPCAT’s canceled, can we have a more inclusive screening?
Apparently in UST, grades can literally make or break your school admission
Stop beating yourself up if you’re not in your dream school
