Take a sneak peek at the deliberations of the UP Ibalon Bicol steering committee. The committee met twice in the past couple of weeks. Both meetings were held at Grilling Point, Balatas Road, Naga City on April 20 and 27 2008.
All the brainstormings now lean toward an ambitious College Entrance Exam assistance project. Now in queue are at least one live review session in June and a web-based review resource center. The live lecture component, which is a test undertaking, shall be held in Naga City and aims to augment the capability of the target high school students in passing the University of the Philippines College Admission Test (UPCAT). The web-based component, now in data gathering and site development-promotion stage, shall be ad-supported and shall be the orgamozation’s fund source in the long haul. The Web site shall be accessible to all.
Long term prospects are bright although in its initial salvo, UP Ibalon Bicol simply hopes to demystify college entrance examinations, which in itself could inspire every scared young high school student, who we all were long time ago.
