  4. I just have a question regarding qualified applicants. How does it impact schools with different academic calendars? For example, some schools still start in June, but a lot of the big universities now start school in August.

  5. I’m thinking of going to law school, but my bachelor’s degree was from 10 years ago. Will I still be eligible to take the PhiLSAT?

    1. No official announcement yet as of this writing. But it is said to have another PhiLSAT this coming September.

  6. Good day Sir/Maam,
    Im Pinsp Tasarra from Pnp Maritime group. Im an aspiring law student who want to take the PHILSAT exam. I have a question sir/maam, if ever I passed the exam does it have a validity date or once I,ve passed the exam is it valid whenever I want to use it to enroll in any law school?
    Hoping for your response, thank you sir/maam.

  7. No expiration or validity period. Once you’ve pass, you are qualified. But please take note that some law schools require high PhILSAT score

    1. This is inaccurate. You Certificate of Eligibility, which will be issued once you pass the exam, will only be valid for the next two years. Please review LEBMO No. 7.

  8. Do you know when the next philsat exam will be?
    I had the undertaking processed and if i miss it, my 1st sem will be invalid
    I cant find the process or next step for my situation and the date for the exam.

  10. Good day! Where shall I submit my application for condition admission? I already have it notarized. Shall I send it in Makati or your new office in UP? Thank you.

  11. Will i be allowed to take the exam f i can only bring original TOR and diploma without notarized certification of graduation from my school..my school s n manila and m presently working here n tuguegarao city..

    1. You must have CERTIFIED true copy of grades, not notarized. Your school will provide certified true copy of grades if not TOR

  12. How about if I have honor graduate eligibility taken April 2014, is that still valid to use as exemption in taking the PhilSat?

  13. Hello, I have few questions.
    1)I graduated w/ honors year 2012. If I can produce a COE from CSC will I be exempted to take the PhiLSAT?
    2)I’m currently working full time and i’m wondering how many years the actual Law study would take and if it’s even possible to take up the course while working.

    1. Yes, you are exempted. Taking up Law requires time, dedication, and perseverance. I know a lot of people who managed to to complete the course while studying in 7 years.

    2. The exemption applies only to those who are enrolling within the first 2 years from their college graduation. You are no longer exempted from taking the PHILSAT. LEBMO No. 7 should have all the answers. I don’t recommend this thread for accurate representation of PHILSAT guidelines.

  14. can i bring my diploma instead of TOR or Certificate of graduation on the day of the examination? i havent been able to get a hold of my TOR yet as i have not yet finished my terminal clearance of my school for my TOR. thanks for the reply
