Naomi’s classmate Gladys
Naomi is taking her first college entrance examination today. Her dad accompanies her. She doesn’t look like nervous at all according to her dad who texted me. She knows that we cannot afford the tuition fee in that prestigious school, but she said she wanted to pass the test just the same. The test will last for five long hours and may include a practical test (if that’s what they call it) wherein they will be asked to draw if they will pursue a course in Fine Arts and Architecture.
She’s so busy the past few weeks and wasn’t able to draw. I scan through her drawing pad and saw this. It was her classmate’s portrait.
My daughter submitted an application form to a Manila university for entrance examination. Good thing she was accompanied by her classmate and best friend who also took the entrance test a few weeks ago. I know that in time my daughter will learn to commute on her own. She is scheduled to take her entrance test on September 30.
As for program preferences, she chose advertising under the college of architecture and fine arts and architecture under the college of architecture and fine arts as well. I’ve written in a previous post about her interest to take up fine arts. She doesn’t want to take up a course that will require her to solve numbers. She loves to draw and perhaps design a Tube Bending machine in the future.
My daughter will be in college next year, but this early we are scouting for universities where she can take an entrance test. I am a product of a state university and I wish my daughter will be able to enjoy the benefits of studying in one, including the subsidized tuition fee. I still remember paying less than $15 every semester. I’m also looking at this state university in Quezon City. Hubby and I wish that we can send one (or both) of our children there. I’m reading related information about this school and I’m glad that one of my friends whose daughter is studying in the same university is generous to share tips on how we can prepare for the entrance test.
I’m also considering other schools in Manila and checking on their websites and affiliate program to know the schedule of their entrance test come June or July.
