  1. Hi! I am a graduate of BSBA – MA in other school. I plan to continue to BSA program. Does PUP have offer regarding this case? What should be the requirements if ever there’s a program like this. Thank you. I’m hoping for your help.

  2. mahirap po ba itake yung accountancy like engineering?

  3. Kailangan po bang magaling ka sa math kapag kukuha ka ng accounting?

    • Hi, Jasmine!

      It depends on how you define “good,” but in many ways, yes. The course has plenty of Mathematics-related subjects and requires students to meet a certain grade to be admitted into the program and eventually continue it, so it would require a certain degree of mathematical ability to meet the challenges of the course.

    • Hi, Roel!

      Thanks for visiting our site.

      None of our staff are graduates of BS Accountancy, so we really can’t tell for sure. We have acquaintances that met the grade required for admission into the BS Accountancy program but had to shift into another course later on because they weren’t able to maintain their grades; however, we also have plenty of acquaintances who managed to complete the program without much problems. At the end of the day, we think it’s a case-to-case basis.


    • Hi, Jessica!

      Thanks for visiting our site.

      We’re sorry but we have no available information regarding how the schools on our list split their classes into semesters. It’s best if you’ll contact the schools directly so they can give you an accurate and more detailed response.

    Your answer will be a big help in the formation of this student.
    Thank you and God Bless!

    • Hi, Jerry!

      Thanks for visiting the site.

      We’re sorry but we’re not affiliated with PUP, so we can’t really confirm that information for you. You can try calling them through the contact number below, though. We’re sure they can give you a more accurate response. 🙂
