Anonymous : I'm ust student who is studying in conservatory of music. And i am foreigner so please understand i can't write in Filipino. And i am preparing to shift to commerce marketing. And now i am worrying for shifter's qualifying exam. Will it be too hard? Is anyone knows the coverage? Is there anyone who failed to shift? Or they accept most of the students who want to shift? Please help me.

So the shifter’s exam, as stated by an anon blogger, is very much like the USTET only a bit more difficult because it contains subjects that you might have already taken up. Yes, there are people who failed to shift but I’m not sure if it’s because of the exam or the limited number of shifters that are accepted. For those who have shifted before, especially to the college of commerce, please post here your experiences and tips regarding this topic.

*** Ka-nosebleed. Di ko kineri hahahaha.

Anonymous : Dun sa nag ask about sa SQT(Shifters Exam) Para lang din syang USTET except mas mahirap kasi may mga stuff na natutunan mo sa college like Stat/ Calculus, Physical Science and Biological Science, Even yung sa English need mo talaga mag isip hehe (Shifter here)

Anonymous : Paano po ba mag-apply for scholarship?

Get all the requirements and pass them on the said date sa OSA. Then wait for their decision kung tanggap ka o hindi. Usually 2 to 3 days kang paghihintayin. Pero maging makulit at magfollow up lang.

Anonymous : kapag po ba nag-tryout ako sa varsity, and nakapasok ako, automatic scholarship na po ba yun?

Kung varsity ka ng UST, oo scholarship ‘yon. Kung ng college niyo lang, hindi.
