Magkakatalo sa grado! UST nixes entrance test for admission in SY 2021-2022
The University of Santo Tomas (UST) will not be administering an entrance test (USTET) to graduating high school students for school year 2021-2022 due to the threat of COVID-19.
In an announcement posted online, UST said it will be using the University of Santo Tomas Admission Rating (USTAR) for admission.
“The USTAR is a score that will be computed from a number of parameters derived largely from the academic performance and records of the applicant,” the school said.
The Commission on Higher Education (CHED) has said that colleges and universities will be adopting “flexible learning” for school year 2020-2021 when classes start in August. This means the use of online and non-online teaching methods.
President Rodrigo Duterte has rejected proposals to hold face to face classes until a vaccine for COVID-19 is found.
