    Abstract: With the third iteration of the no-test UP college admission, there is a need to study, assess, and address if the excellence with economic and geographic equity creed worked. This research looks into the collective characteristics of applicants from Metro Manila and all provinces as they are geospatially distributed, accounting for variation in the information asked in the UPCA application process. Specifically, the research describes the spatial distribution of applicant characteristics at the provincial level; determines if spatial autocorrelation is present among the number of qualifiers and qualifying rates of provinces; and formulates a model that significantly explains variability in the number of qualifiers given spatial autocorrelation and other explanatory variables.

    UPSS and UPSCRFI invite you to attend the colloquium on 11 April 2024 from 5:00 PM - 6:30 PM in UPSS Lecture Hall 1!
