  1. Hi!

    I’m currently studying at the University of Makati as a Grade 11 student (K-12 program) and I’m still having a hard time thinking what to take in college.

    Lately, I’ve been thinking that I like to take AB English because I want to enhance my English skills. But I’m afraid that I can’t pass the interview. Apparently, I can read and understand English really well but I’m not that good when it comes to speaking.

    Do I have to be excellent (as in really good) in English to pass the interview?
