1. (a) High School graduate for PLMAT
(b) Graduate of pre-Med, or its equivalent, for MCAT
(c) Graduate of pre-Law, or its equivalent, for CLAT
2. Proof of Manila residency is required for PLMAT and MCAT if the applicant intends to avail of the scholarship that the City of Manila is offering its residents.
Colleges administering the admissions tests are instructed not to pre-screen applicants as part of their selection process save for the basic requirement stated above.
Please be guided accordingly.
