ADMU, Will You Accept Me?


At around September of 2011, I made a very important decision in my academic life. I decided that I was going to transfer to Ateneo de Manila University (ADMU). If you want to know the reasons why I decided to transfer out of DLSU, search my blog for the Reasons Why I Hate DLSU-M series. That should clear up some questions. If not, you can leave your questions at the comment section below. :)

So back to ADMU.

I got my application for transferee and application for scholarship from ADMU, and all that was left to do was to study for the Ateneo College Entrance Test (ACET). I didn’t study for it right away because my ACET was set in January; so I delayed my ACET tutorial ’til November.

Come November, and my workload had been doubled. November was practically like hell month for me because final papers, projects, videos and tests were piling in. During that month, I had my tutorial at the AHEAD Katipunan branch (which, by the way, is the best place to study for any college entrance test) while DLSU was churning out tests, papers and etc. Continue reading “ADMU, Will You Accept Me?”

To Incoming HS Seniors: 10 Tips To Get Into A Good College/University

It’s halfway through April already and it would seem that most of the younger my friends made have either graduated from high school or are incoming seniors (our educational system isn’t K+12 by the way). So I’m here to offer some tips for those incoming seniors on how to get into a good college/university. It’s not 100% foolproof, so don’t count on it entirely.

Do believe me when I say “I know what I’m talking about” though, because I took the Ateneo College Entrance Test (ACET) thrice and the De La Salle University College Entrance Test (DLSUCET) twice. I have more than enough knowledge to know what to avoid than those who’ve passed the tests on their first try.

FIRST.
Apply to a review centre this summer. Reviewing this summer will help you understand the lessons you’re gonna get when you enter senior year. Look for a review centre that’s hires excellent teachers. I would recommend AHEAD Tutorial and Review because they are just the best at what they do. They know how to teach kids in a fun environment and still keep it academic. For those living near the Katipunan area, you’re in luck because their main office is situated there. It’s in the building with Yellow Cab in it.

Here’s a video about them:

Reasons Why I Hate DLSU-M (part 4): Am I Really in College?

(lol at the thumbnail)

Two weeks ago, I took the Ateneo College Entrance Test (ACET) for transferees. I prepared myself for that exam for over two months. I took a one-on-one tutorial at Ahead in Katipunan. I did nothing but review for weeks before the exam. I was surprised to find that they hadn’t change the test since 2007, and I don’t think they will change it any time soon. What was more surprising was the difficulty of the test. It’s either I’ve gotten smarter over the past two years or I’ve gotten smarter over the past two years hahaha!

Let me elaborate. Continue reading “Reasons Why I Hate DLSU-M (part 4): Am I Really in College?”
