QUEZON CITY, Philippines (The Adobo Chronicles, Quezon City Bureau) – The much-delayed release of the results of the University of the Philippines College Admission Test (UPCAT) is scheduled for today, April 30.
But for incoming male students at U.P. Diliman, passing the entrance exams is not enough.
According to a new requirement set by the U.P. Diliman Board of Regents, all incoming male students will have to undergo a physical exam.
The Board said that it wanted to make sure that the new students will not cause any embarrassment to the University should they decide to participate in the campus’ annual Oblation Run where male students run around naked as part of a protest against a chosen political issue.
A member of the Board of Regents spoke to The Adobo Chronicles on condition of anonymity and he said that the Board wants to make sure that the incoming male students “ay malaki ang hinaharap,” (They have a bright future)
