Download the application form HERE. Print 2 copies, and submit the forms together with 2 1x1 ID photos, and a copy of your child's SY 2012-2013 report card to a PSHS campus or DOST Regional Office nearest you. Application is FREE for public school students and PHP 100 for private school students. Deadline of application is August 2, 2013.
The NCE will be held on September 28, 2013. The exam covers Scientific Ability, Quantitative Ability, Abstract Reasoning, and Verbal Aptitude. Only 240 successful examinees will be accepted for School Year 2014-2015. I recommend that you buy the NCE Reviewer once you submit the application forms. It basically covers what will come up at the exams. Rap also use the two MSA NCE reviewers that we bought from National Bookstore.
Rap is now having the time of his life in Pisay. He enjoys his classes immensely and loves studying with the brightest kids in the country. He says he's taking the science path and will take up Biology and Medicine in college.
Good luck to all applicants and I hope I'll meet some of you at the Pisay Main Campus next school year!
