UP Diliman Academic Calendar for 2008-2009 Now Online

May 23, 2008 Leave a comment

The 2008-2009 Academic Calendar of UP Diliman has been published. It notes important dates students and faculty should be aware of.

Let me take note some important dates for the first semester:

  • General Registration: June 2 (freshmen), June 3-6 (other students)
  • Start of Classes: June 10
  • Mid-semester: August 7
  • Final Examination Week: October 13-21 (non-graduating)
  • End of Classes: October 8
  • Deadline of filing for UPCAT: June 18 (Metro Manila schools), June 25 (Non-Metro Manila schools)*
  • UPCAT 2009: August 2 and 3

* from the UPCAT Web site. This conflicts with the date in the academic calendar, but I think the UPCAT Web site is more authoritative in this case, so I’m assuming this is the correct date.

CRS Announcement inconsistent

May 12, 2008 2 comments

As JM Tuazon pointed out, there is a one (and important) inconsistency in the start time of the first preenlistment run from the same announcement.

Allow me to highlight that:

//crs2.upd.edu.ph

This should be fixed, as it may cause confusion, especially those who can’t wait to preenlist, and those who are just paying. Well, they could just preenlist at 6 PM, but, still it is a confusion. 🙂

On UPD College of Engineering Summer Registration, AY 07-08

April 11, 2008 7 comments

Disclaimer: I wasn’t there myself. This post is merely a reflection of what I’ve read and heard from my contacts.

"Enrolling for summer classes sucked. Stupid form 5s." – Leslie Ng

That’s what Leslie said when I asked for a comment regarding the summer registration process of the College of Engineering. Looking over at blog entries created by some of my contacts, I conclude that this sentiment is common among the summer enrollees.

What went wrong? According to Jamie Polloso:

Hi-nold lang naman nila lahat ng Form 5 sa [Engineering Admistration Office], so you have to wait for hundreds (even thousands) of Form 5as na chinecheck nila bawa’t isa yung eligibilty. parang,  ‘whaaaattt?’ if they’re going to do that, sana man lang madami silang tao (at computer), or at least some kind of public address system para hindi nagkandaloko2 yung mga tao kung anong no. na ba.,diba?

Translation: They held-up our Form 5’s at the Engineering Administration Office (Admin), so you have to wait for hundreds (even thousands) of Form 5a’s that the people at the Admin check for eligibility. Like, "what?" If they’re going to do that, they should have deployed enough personnel (and computers), or at least some kind of public address system so people would not be confused on what number is being called, right?

To provide a view of how much of a hassle this system became, let me share this text message I received from Richie: "Ang bago kong Admin number: 1,722. Anong number pa lang? 700 something." (My new Admin number: 1,722. And what number is being called? 700 something.) Jamie wrote that she had to wait 7 hours for her Form 5.

My reaction would be like: Why didn’t they hand the Form 5a’s to the respective departments, so the "load" may be distributed, and only ineligible students are to come to the Admin for their 5a? If I’m not mistaken, this is what they do during registration on a regular semester.

The process is "un-engineer-like" — not being able to foresee this "disaster." This is almost like last year’s summer registration — when the UP Diliman implemented complete computerization of the enlistment/registration process.

I’m hoping to get a guest blogger over to post his/her first-hand experience during the summer registration.
