The Pamantasan ng Lungsod ng Maynila releases on June 8, 2021, the list of over 4,000 freshmen applicants for the academic year 2021-2022 who were accepted for admission.
According to PLM, they receive over 15,000 applications and 13,000 applicants qualified to take the PLM Admission Test (PLMAT) on May 7.
What is PLMAT?
PLMAT is an acronym for Pamantasan ng Lungsod ng Maynila Admission Test. It is held every year especially for those aspiring to enroll in undergraduate programs at PLM. Passing this exam is a requirement to be admitted to the institution.
The exam is consists of subtests in English, Science, Mathematics, Filipino, and Abstract Reasoning which usually lasts for four hours. But the written examination last May 7 was done through online video conferencing rooms for two hours.
The application process and conduct of exams is more convenient since PLM introduced four innovations which include online application and submission of documents; (2) online interactive PLMAT reviewer; (3) conduct of PLMAT at four testing centers (public high schools in Manila) that brought the test closer to the applicants; and conduct of same-day or walk-in exams for the convenience of applicants.
