AHEAD Pioneers Online Mock Exam for the UPCAT

The first ever mock exam for the University of the Philippines College Admission Test (UPCAT) in the country is now available for everyone with a  computer and internet connection for every student taking the UPCAT this year.

AHEAD, the leading and most awarded tutorial and review center in the country once again introduced this innovation to prepare students who will take the UPCAT this coming October 21-22, 2017.
        Only the creme dela creme are admitted in the University of the Philippines. UP graduates are deemed to be more ready for work and are given more opportunities in the past decades.  UP produced 7 of 14 presidents of the the Philippines, national scientists and artists, chief justices, renowned entrepreneurs, and industry leaders, among others. UP has 15 campuses nationwide.
        UP remains to be the university with the largest number of applicants every year.  UPCAT is one of the country’s most competitive exams, having 70,000 examinees of which only 10 percent pass. Tuition in UP will be waived next year so more students are expected to take the UPCAT.
          AHEAD’s mission and vision include reaching more students; and through the internet, students from as far as Visayas and Mindanao can now experience taking the exam under time limit.
With the UPCAT online mock exam, students will be able to take a simulated test that will give them an idea about their chances of passing the UPCAT.
           AHEAD helped create the tutorial and review industry in the country. It is known for creating many firsts. AHEAD published the first UPCAT book and UPCAT APP.  It is the first review center that offered review specifically for UP, Ateneo and De La Salle.   AHEAD is also the first center to offer a program that guarantees passing, or your money-back.
Aside from UPCAT, AHEAD also offers an online mock exam for the De La Salle University,  and in the following months the University of Asia and the Pacific and other state universities’ entrance exams.
       Like UP, other state universities will also waive their tuition fee next year.
      The mock UPCAT is like the real exam -- it contains the same subjects and it’s also four hours long. AHEAD advises that students be ready with two bond papers to be used as scratch papers for math; snacks and drinks; and to go to the restroom before they start the test.

The test must be taken in front of a desktop or laptop with the following specifications and programs.

●      A minimum internet speed of 1MBPS
●     Desktop or laptop computer with at least 2GB of RAM
●     Windows 7 or higher / OS X Mavericks (Version 10.9) or higher

Taking mock tests will help students have a feel of the exam so they will be more at ease during the exam. To take this online U

        Students who need support after getting their scores can get explanation from AHEAD tutors in AHEAD branches in Quezon City,  Ortigas, Alabang, Antipolo, Tuguegarao,  Baguio, and Makati. Or they can get online tutorial so they don’t have to travel to the tutorial center but speak to a teacher live.

They can inquire about this by emailing online@ahead.edu.ph or calling 09178911187.

Education will always be the best investment. And education from the best universities will always have the best ROI.

LBC Ensures Customers’ Welfare by Adhering to Data Protection Act


Press Release
            The value LBC gives to customers goes beyond the simple act of sending and receiving their precious “padala.” It also means making sure that their customers’ personal data is protected, especially from cyber threats.
       In a recent forum with LBC’s top officials, Atty. Raul Cortez, Corporate, External and Legal Affairs Director of Microsoft Philippines, shares that due to the 4th Industrial Revolution, technology has become ingrained in our lives and shape the way we live, work and interact.
         An established company, such as LBC, should be able to put systems in place so that they serve the needs of their customers while making sure that it is compliant with the requirements of the Data Privacy Act of 2012. This law protects the privacy of individual’s personal data while ensuring the free flow of information and growth of businesses, including the exchange of information via live and online transactions.
Atty. Cortez emphasizes that under the provisions of the law, an individual has the right to be protected whenever s/he decides to share personal information with any entity. This encompasses sensitive information such as an individual’s race, health information, education, religion, ethnic background, marital status, and even political affiliation.
          For its part, the country’s leading name in remittance and cargo, underlined their efforts to combat cybercrime; guard themselves fully from breaches in cybersecurity and ensure that they are complying strictly to ensure the privacy of their customers’ data.
          LBC is committed and more than ready in its journey of compliance to implement appropriate organizational, physical, and technical measures - as required by the Data Privacy Act.
Mr. Dale Jose, Modern Workplace Solutions Lead of Microsoft Philippines, adds that the security perimeter in the workplace has now been changed.
          He said that data breach can often be a result of weak or stolen passwords, or when sensitive data is accidentally shared to the wrong person. Given these risks, Jose adds that customers who do online transactions have the right to be informed, to object, to access, to correct or rectify, to block or remove data, to have data portability, to file a complaint, and to be indemnified.
Given this scenario, LBC has begun adopting measures to conform to the Data Privacy Act. In working closely with Microsoft, LBC’s IT and Compliance team has already adopted Microsoft 0ffice 365 for productivity and Azure. Microsoft designed Azure and Office 365 with industry-leading security measures and privacy policies to safeguard data in the cloud and can help on the journey to reducing risks and equiping companies with the necessary tools to help them comply with the Data Privacy Act.
       LBC assures that while they are just in the infant stages en route to full compliance,  the measures they have begun implementing is a testament to the way they do business—and  the way they care for customers  who have entrusted them with vital information and transactions.
LBC is the Philippines’ market leader in retail and corporate courier & cargo, money remittance, and logistics services. With a growing network of over 6,400 branches, hubs & warehouses, partners, and agents in over 30 countries, LBC is committed to moving lives, businesses, and communities and delivering smiles around the world.
