Plan for Success


With so many colleges and universities to choose from, students need all the help they can get in deciding which one fits their future plans. Planning Ahead: A Guide to Metro Manila’s Finest Colleges and Universities,a groundbreaking project of AHEAD Tutorial & Review Center, can help students arrive at the best decision.

First published in 2000, the updated 2012 edition includes all relevant information about the best colleges and universities in Metro Manila, sourced from the institutions themselves as well as the Commission on Higher Education (CHED) and the Professional Regulation Commission (PRC).

The first book of its kind in the country, Planning Ahead  aims to guide parents and incoming college students in choosing the right university according to the course they intend to take. It provides a range of useful information from course offerings with corresponding career tracks, facilities, and scholarship programs to estimated tuition fees, history, and other significant details.

The book includes the profiles of the following institutions: Assumption College, Ateneo de Manila University, De La Salle University in Manila, Mapua Institute of Technology, Miriam College, San Beda College, Saint Scholastica’s College, University of Asia and the Pacific, University of the Philippines (UP) Diliman, UP Los Baños, UP Manila, and University of Santo Tomas.

Planning Ahead is now available at participating National Bookstore outlets in Metro Manila.



Hooray to the future Blue Eagles and Green Archers!


Congratulations for passing the ACET and the DLSUCET! We’ll post names so just keep on checking our blogs and other networking sites.


Don’t worry UPCAT takers, February is almost here and sooner or later, UPCAT results will be released.


Have a happy day Ahead!

Soar and score for Ateneo

Not only did the Ateneo Blue Eagles and Eaglets soar high in the 71st UAAP Season Men’s Basketball. They also proved that determination and teamwork pay off well.

Last October 4 and 5, a number of upcoming high school students took the Ateneo HS Entrance Exam. We know that all of you did well so put on that smiling face 🙂

Let us be the first one to welcome you to the Ateneo Community! Congratulations!

How to pass the ACET

Students aspiring to take off with the wings of an eagle will have to take the first bout before soaring with their college career.

The ACET Refresher Course does not only help the students remember the past lessons. More importantly, it motivates them to do better, gain confidence, and be prepared. This is what Tiffany Kintanar did when she took the ACET last year. She inspired the students to do more and remain positive during the ACET Refresher Course held at Quezon City Sports Complex last August 31. Samantha Fajardo, also an ACET Passer, gave her testimony before the students who attended the ACET Refresher Course in Alabang last August 10 and 17.

There really is no secret ingredient on how to pass the ACET. Just remember what we took up during the Refresher Course and do the best you can! So, free your mind from worries! Good luck to everyone who will take the ACET this weekend!

Refreshments at the Refresher Course

Wondering who’s that pretty lady in red on our brochures and flyers? That’s Carmina Mangalindan — an UPCAT and ACET Passer and Ahead College Entrance Test Review Student. She shared her experience about the UPCAT during the Refresher Course held in Quezon City Sports Complex last July 20. The program was packed with lessons, games, and some gentle but useful reminders. Do you know what to do the night before the exam? Don’t cram! Students who attended the review class know these by heart. Let us share them to you:

  1. Remember to bring your test permit, ID, pencils with erasers, pens, and small ruler with you. Don’t forget your jacket, hand fan, analog wristwatch and of course, snacks and drinks. These will really help you during exams especially when you feel uncomfortable inside the testing rooms.
  2. Prepare for calamities. No matter how bad the weather is, the UPCAT will go on!
  3. Don’t wear new clothes and shoes which you haven’t “broken in”.
  4. Don’t study anymore. Let your brain rest.
  5. Get enough sleep. Eight hours is enough—nothing more, nothing less.
  6. Don’t eat new food to avoid allergy and indigestion.
  7. Relax! 

Students had a great time re-learning the lessons, meeting new and old friends, and of course, getting freebies from our sponsors! Thanks to Royal Tru-Orange, Quake Cake, Mentos Chewing Gum, Lucky Me! Supreme, Chippy, Dynamite candy, and Multivitamins Enervon – More Energy, Mas Happy!


Surely, the students didn’t go home empty-handed!
