The Admission Tests

For applicants taking the GPAT, please bring the provisional permit and the application fee official receipt on test day. The examination covers three areas: quantitative ability, verbal ability and logical reasoning. It takes a total of approximately three hours to complete (excluding breaks). 

For those who elect to take the GRE (revised General Test), ask to have scores sent to the University of the Philippines Cesar E. A. Virata School of Business, (code 1607). For the GRE score report to reach us before the April application deadline, applicants should take the GRE before February. Do not send your scores to us unless you are asked by the VSB graduate program office. For more information about the GRE (registration, test centers, dates, fees, test content and structure, etc), visit the Educational Testing Service (ETS) website at

International applicants except those with bachelor's degrees from the US, UK, New Zealand and Australian Universities must demonstrate fluency in English by taking the TOEFL, also administered by ETS. Our institution code is B151. We require a minimum score of 550 on the paper-based exam and 90 on the Internet-based exam for admission.
