UPCAT - USTET Online Tussle

a post from an unofficial UPCAT (UP College Admissions Test) Facebook page by its administrators triggered an online uproar from UST students after the latter's admins made a comment about the difficulty of UST's own entrance exams.

on jan8 this post regarding University of Sto. Tomas (UST)'s admission exams was posted, "Lumabas na pala ang results ng USTET (UST Entrance Test), walang thrill kasi madali lang naman nun. Last week pa ng February ang results ng UPCAT – walang kasing hirap kaya sulit ang paghihintay! ;)"

this caught the angst of UST students and hence followed the online tussle between UST and UP, it even trended on Twitter. the admins have long asked for apology.

"Humihingi po kami ng paumanhin sa kung anuman po ang aming nasabi sa page na ito. Hindi naman po namin intensyong makasakit ng iba o ng kung anu pa man at alam po namin na nasa amin po ang pagkakamali dahil hindi namin inisip ng mabuti ang kakalabasan ng mga salitang aming binitiwan. Sa huli ay buong puso po kaming humihingi ng paumanhin sa lahat."

c'mon peeps, its just the start of the year - PEACE!

know that i am glad to have witnessed you grow - your fun emojis, crazy virals, and live videos i will sorely miss. oh i always thought it’s cool…
