Philippine Science High School System opens applications for SY 2017-201811:42 PM
The Philippine Science High School System has recently opened the application period for the 2016 National Competitive Examination (NCE).
Application forms can be downloaded for free from the PSHS website (www.pshs.edu.ph) or from any PSHS campus, DOST office, and Provincial Science and Technology office. Deadline for submission is September 2, 2016. For public school students, examination fee is free. However, I believe I paid 100 pesos for my son who was enrolled then in a private school for boys. He will now be in Grade 10 in Philippine Science High School Main Campus (Agham Road, Quezon City) this coming August.
There are many review centers offering NCE reviews for those who want to get in . We didn't get the luxury of time to do that for my son, though. Thankfully, he was still enrolled in the Kumon program when he took the NCE in 2012. Then, I bought the reviewer sold at Pisay and 2 volumes of MSA reviewers from National Bookstore.
Being in Pisay is a great experience not only for my son but for the whole family. Not only is the tuition fee free, but text books are also loaned throughout the year. The kids get monthly stipend and the amount will depend on the financial capability of the parents. My son gets the lowest monthly stipend of 500 pesos and, from there, his monthly payment of 80 pesos for his dormitory is taken. We get to pay PTA fees and class fund contributions, too.
What I really love about my son being in Pisay is the Pisay community itself. The parents are all supportive of all the activities. You may think that the kids are all crazy on competing among themselves, but that doesn't happen. Everyone helps everyone in Pisay. No one gets left behind.
If your child is well-versed in Science, Technology, and Mathematics, now is the time to apply for a Pisay scholarship. Please don't miss this chance. If you want to know more about our life as Pisay parents and my son's experiences in Pisay, just hit the comment button and I'd gladly respond.
