hashtag: rejected UPCAT essay questions

Last Saturday, the University of the Philippines held it's college admission test for the academic year 2013-2014.  The UPCAT is one of the earliest, if not the earliest college entrance examination available to incoming college freshmen. Millions of 4th year high school students flocked to testing centers all over the country.

What's special with this year's examination, that set facebook and twitter netizens abuzz, is the addition of essay questions.  Twit-peeps started making jokes about this and  #RejectedUPCATEssayQuestions became the number one trending topic in the Philippines the night after the exam.

Of course, I had to join in the fun. Blogger and PPTA Officer Rian Gabor suggested that I compile my tweets in a blog. Check out my tweets below.

There were several blogs who found the entries so hilarious that they compiled the tweets. Check one of the blogs here.

Definitely, it's more fun in (the University of ) the Philippines! :)
