If you want to ace that college entrance exam at the school you wanted to enter, you should read on how Patricia Antoinette Patel aced her 10 entrance exams at some of the premier universities in the Philippines.

In a post she shared on her Facebook account that she made public, she wrote down six pieces of advice that she thinks would help out those who would like to ace their entrance exams.

Among them include attending review classes, studying and preparing ahead of time, setting a study habit, studying with friends, eyeing your eye on the prize, and taking some rest.

In the last portions of her post, she advised others to take entrance exams on every university in order to have choices which school best fits your criteria.

Among the schools that she passed all entrance exams include the University of the Philippines, Polytechnic University of the Philippines, University of Santo Tomas, Far Eastern University, University of the East, De La Salle University, Technological University of the Philippines, Philippine State College of Aeronautics, the Phinma-Saint Jude College, and the DOST Science Education Institute Scholarship Program.

Her post, which was up since Monday evening has garnered 6,198 shares with 6,700 reactions and 776 comments.

Patricia also invited netizens to send her a personal message to get a piece of more personalized advice from her.

She hopes that with this post, she could “inspire” others to achieve what she had.

Full Facebook post:

I passed every scholarship and entrance exam I took! (10/10) 

(FEUCAT, UE-CET, DCAT, USTET, PHINMA-SJC, PUPCET, DOST-SEI Scholarship, UPCAT, TUPSTAT, PhilSCAAT)

Hear me out , guys. I’m taking this opportunity to hopefully inspire every single person reading this, especially the incoming Grade 12 students. So, here’s my advice to those who will be taking their entrance exams in the future:

1. Attending review classes does not guarantee passing entrance exams, but it helps a lot!
– it prepares you on what to expect in entrance exams and you can actually get a lot of helpful tips you can use on the actual exams. it also helps you realize what subject areas you need to work on so you can score higher on tests. and while you’re at it, it is also a great way to meet new friends!

2. Study and prepare ahead of time
– it’s never to early to start preparing for entrance tests. while you’re still on vacation, you can start studying so you don’t stress yourself out with the tremendous amount of workload when classes start.

3. Set a study habit for yourself
– set a strict studying schedule for even at least 30 minutes a day. this might not sound fun but if you make it a routine, it can actually help because hey, even the littlest of progress in studying is still progress. just make sure you actually follow through it!

4. Study with your friends
– this is a great way to share your knowledge and have your friends to share their knowledge with you. and doing things with your friends makes it even more fun, right?

5. Eyes on the prize
– i know some of you have dilemmas whether you’d choose passion or practicality, but don’t let external factors knock you off the path of actually pursuing what you want. studying with a goal set in mind ignites a fire inside of you so don’t let it die. you can do and achieve everything as long as you work hard for it.

6. Rest
– don’t overwork or stress yourself out too much. while studying hard is very important, relaxing is equally important too.

Special note: Apply to every university you can so you will have a bunch of schools to choose from later on. Pls don’t be lazy.

EDIT: Feel free to message me if you have questions or if you want tips on CETs. I would be glad to help :–) but don’t expect me to reply in an instant because I’ve been receiving lots of messages lately :–)

Lastly, I didn’t post this to brag about my achievements, but to honor God who has given me everything. I honestly couldn’t have done this without Him. Thank You, Lord!
