  10. Hi cheryl rose, kelangang ipasa mo yong entrance exam. Puede kang mag-apply for reconsideration or for waiting list kung konti lang ang applicants, pero kung super dami ang mag-exam at maraming makapasa, mawawalan ka ng slot. Kaya mag-practice kang magsagot sa mga entrance exam questions.

  11. cheryl rose lauronal

    hi required po ba talaga na ma ipasa mo yung entrance exam sa tup very convinient kasi ako sa tup in taguig kasi sobrang lapit lang sko doon meron po bang posibilidad makapasok ako sa school even if i faild the exam ? pasagot naman po pls

  12. Hi Princess, if you have passed the 2016 PLMAT or PLM admission test, you should have asked permission from the registrar if you’re allowed to skip the first semester. If you did not take the 2016 PLMAT, and if you have not taken any college course, you can check if you’re eligible to take the PLMAT exam, and then apply for the 2017 PLMAT. If you’re asking about transfer, I think up to now PLM does not accept transferees.
