MANILA, Philippines – The Philippine Science High School System (PSHS) released on Saturday, December 12, the results of the annual National Competitive Examination (NCE).
Of the 22,791 applicants, 1,355 examinees passed in the system's 16 campuses nationwide. The results came out more than two months after the exam was conducted on October 3.
The deadline for slot confirmation/reservation of principal qualifiers is on January 29, 2016.
The NCE is a scholastic aptitude test designed to measure scientific ability, quantitative ability, abstract reasoning, and verbal aptitude of applicants, according to the Department of Science and Technology.
PSHS is a service institute of DOST, offering free scholarships for high school students who will likely take up a Science career after graduation.
The PSHS scholars also get a monthly stipend. Uniform, transportation, and living allowances are given according to financial need.
The PSHS started accepting incoming high school applicants for the exam in July. The exam, originally scheduled on September 28, was moved to accommodate processing and communication delays due to unpredictable weather conditions during the month of August.
