UPCAT Refresher & Intensive ACET/DCAT Review is now open for enrollments.. Hurry!! Limited slots only!!!

Review with the Best!

  • Proven effective through the years. Check our Passers Lists through the years to see the names of thousands of BRAIN TRAINees who successfully conquered entrance exams. Take note that a number of BRAIN TRAINees even aced the exams, making them topnotchers. Notice that our passers considerably increase year after year.  Plus, read these Case Studies that show Brain Trainees really having an edge over non-Bain Trainees...now these are undisputable proofs of a truly effective review program!
  • No misleading/vague UPCAT passers lists. The names on the Passers and Topnotchers Lists we present are actual BRAIN TRAIN students: they actually underwent our review program. Our Passers Lists do not include passers who simply connected with us through the BRAIN TRAIN Club or befriended us on Facebook. It is not our practice to claim credit where credit is not due simply to increase the number of our Passers and Topnotchers List. Moreover, our Passers and Topnotchers Lists are clearly defined: our UPCAT Passers List does not contain the names of passers of other college entrance tests.
  • Dare to compare. How does BRAIN TRAIN fare compared with other review centers? Take it from these UPCAT and PSHS/UPRHS passers who dared to compare the BRAIN TRAIN review with other review programs.

    Note: The following students’ comments were lifted from their post-review evaluation (except for Angel Mendoza’s) prior to their taking exams. BRAIN TRAIN did not instigate the students to compare it with other review centers in writing; these are simply what the students had written on their evaluation sheets.

    PIA VIANCA NIKKA GARING compared the BRAIN TRAIN review with the review attended by her peers, and was definitely glad she chose the best. This was what she had written in her post-review evaluation:
    "I am glad I took BRAIN TRAIN classes and not others because my classmates [who enrolled] in other review centers tell us that their teachers are boring and the way the teachers teach is “snooze-inducing”. The BRAIN TRAIN teachers were funny and not boring. I also like the way the lessons here were taught: straight to the point."

    JODIV MALICSI reviewed at BRAIN TRAIN and in another review center at the same time. This was his verdict: “[What I liked best in BRAIN TRAIN is that They clearly discuss the answers in every Practice Test, unlike in the other review center where we just answer and answer. It’s good to be at BRAIN TRAIN. You will never get bored here.”

    MARIA QUITA GUEVARRA was glad to have chosen BRAIN TRAIN, because her friends/classmates who reviewed elsewhere were not satisfied like her.  She had this written this on her evaluation:
    Hindi siya boring unlike other review classes. Once you enroll at BT, you will always look forward to its every meeting…very helpful. THE BEST!

    ANGEL MENDOZA reviewed at BRAIN TRAIN and then reviewed again at another review center. She had written this on her blog: “not satisfied [with her review in another review center]..sana sa bhay na lang aq maghapon.. hehe..sana natulog na lng aq ng mahabang oras....thanks na lng sa mga papel..hahahahaha..hay..i miz brain train...so much..di maiwasang macompare ung mga tao kanina buh..walang wala ih..tsk..thanks na rin sa effort nila..haha.

    PARDAU LAARNI VALERIO is known to have tried reviewing in at least two (2) other review centers besides BRAIN TRAIN, thereby making her opinion very credible. She had written this:
    "Best review center! Studying here really pays off. [BRAIN TRAIN] makes studying really fun. There is no such boring moment here. The teachers are the best. It [the review] helps us even in school. It gave us the most out of our money.”

    STEVEN MICHAEL RESMA had reviewed at another review center first, and then at BRAIN TRAIN. This was what he had written in his post-BRAIN TRAIN Review Evaluation:
    “Best review center I’ve been in; great teachers, well-created modules/handouts, conducive learning and good time management.”

    CHASSAGNE YAOYAO, after talking to her friend about their review classes, volunteered this information to us: “I love the teachers, the supplementary materials. I asked my friend about her review classes [not BRAIN TRAIN], and I think I’m enrolled in the best. We really got our money’s worth. The teachers are not boring at all; I like them all and I wish they were the teachers in our school.

  • No wasted time. BRAIN TRAIN does not waste its student’s time, so there are no boring unnecessary lessons here! We give energized and simplified discussions, and our lectures put emphasis techniques and shortcuts. Our review materials are concise and easy to read, not something that looks like a regular textbook. And since our teachers know that every second counts, they will not waste your time with icebreakers that do not help in hurdling exams—our teachers’ activities are not only stimulating but are also relevant!
  • Excellent teachers. Our teachers’ line-up is our primary pride, thus we invest in selecting and in and training them. We choose teachers whose résumés show that they definitely know the nitty-gritty of what they will teach, and whose personalities can capture the interest of students.

FAQs

Why does BRAIN TRAIN employ strict policies regarding tardiness and attendance?
This must actually be deemed POSITIVELY. Every second at the BRAIN TRAIN REVIEW is very important---the pace of the REVIEW is fast and each meeting is densely filled with important lessons. In fact, memorable techniques and valuable lessons are imparted even when BRAIN TRAIN teachers seem to just be kidding around! BRAIN TRAIN teachers sincerely feel sorry for a student who missed even a few minutes of their lessons, for they feel certain that time wasted makes a whole lot of difference. Think: What would the management of BRAIN TRAIN gain when they require absentee students to complete their attendance by attending make-up classes? Absolutely nothing! This is even an additional work to the staff. But despite the probable gaining of a parent's or student's ire, the BRAIN TRAIN management still insists that its every student get his money's worth. Think again: If a review center (or any education institution for that matter) does not care whether its students complete the whole review course, it goes to show that the people behind do not deem their lectures and program important or effective. Or that all they care about is the fact that the client has already paid, period.
How effective is the REVIEW?
The BRAIN TRAIN REVIEW is so effective that it has more UPCAT passers than all the other review centers combined. BRAIN TRAIN is the only review center which has been posting its passers’ list year after year after year. Other review centers claim to have high passing rates, but without any proof.  Other review centers also post passers lists that include UPCAT passers who are just their forum members or Facebook friends but did not necessarily review with them.  Moreover, there have been so many cases wherein a student less expected to pass the UPCAT makes it after attending the BRAIN TRAIN REVIEW, while a student more expected to pass does not make it after NOT attending the BRAIN TRAIN REVIEW.
 
Is this REVIEW also effective for other college entrance tests?
Yes. If the BRAIN TRAIN REVIEW had been able to help thousands of students to enter UP (the most competitive/the toughest university to get into), then helping students get into other universities is a cinch. In fact, many of our former students did not just pass the ACET/DLSUCET/USTET, etc. but were even given scholarships because of their high scores.  
The regular BRAIN TRAIN REVIEW is patterned most after the UPCAT; the subtests and question types of the UPCAT are similar to the subtypes and question types of other college admission tests.  But if a regular BRAIN TRAIN reviewee wants to intensify his preparation for the ACET and DLSUCET, he has the option to join BRAIN TRAIN's Intensive ACET and DLSUCET Review for an additional fee.  In BRAIN TRAIN's Intensive ACET and DLSUCET Review, the subtests unique to ACET and DLSUCET will be tackled.
 
I am already Number 1 in my class in school. Do I still need to attend the REVIEW?
Even if you already expect to pass the UPCAT, there are other benefits that can be derived from the REVIEW. Here are some:
  1. You would have better chances of becoming an UPCAT Topnotcher (a very great honor, as this affirms that you are among the most intelligent students in your batch. Plus, you will receive full scholarship - free tuition with monthly allowance)
  2. It will further raise your UPCAT score, so you have better chances of qualifying for the Advanced Placement Test (APE) in UP. Being an APE passer will exempt you from having to take up some subjects in college, thus making your load lighter and your college days easier.
  3. It will raise your grades even further in school, securing your spot as an honor graduate.
  4. What you will learn from the REVIEW will also benefit you throughout college.
Of the Los Baños batches, which is most recommended?
BRAIN TRAIN recommends the first batch since this gives a student plenty of time after the REVIEW to still catch up on his weak subject areas, either through self-study or by availing of BRAIN TRAIN tutorial services.
Are the teachers in all venues the same?  Do the different venues have different review qualities?
Almost none.  All venues employ the same review program and review material.  We also try our best to let students in all BRAIN TRAIN REVIEW venues to  experience every BRAIN TRAIN teacher.  Although there are rare instances when certain teachers cannot teach in some venues (due to a teacher's personal schedule conflict, etc.), we ensure that no venue will be shortchanged; BRAIN TRAIN teachers calibrate their lessons and share their teaching expertise to one another.
I will not be able to attend any of your summer offerings. Do you still offer REVIEW classes in June and July?
Yes, but only during weekends because the school year has already begun by then. Because of this, BRAIN TRAIN does NOT recommend the June-July batch. Students will practically have no more time to rest because after attending school from Monday to Friday, they still have to attend the REVIEW during weekends. Hence students who take this batch are rarely able to attend all the REVIEW sessions. It also becomes too late for them to catch up on their weak subject areas.
