We don’t waste your time.

No boring, unnecessary lessons. Engaging discussions. Concise Math, Science and Grammar guides. Emphasis on techniques and time-saving shortcuts. That’s THE Brain Train advantage!



  • Unmatched track record

    Brain Train is the only review center publishing its UP College Admission Test passers year after year — others claim to have higher passing rates but do not show proof! Brain Train posts only names of passers who actually attended its review classes, and boasts of top placers in ALL leading local universities.

  • Detailed pre-review assessment

    We determine strengths and weaknesses before our review classes even start!  The Brain Train Student Assessment Report indicates not just a student’s scores but also his or her per subject ranking out of thousands of students.  This helps correct any weaknesses in preparation for the actual test.

  • The best teachers

    Brain Train’s reputation is built on them. Our engaging, energetic teachers have years of teaching experience and a strong commitment to having students ace their examinations.


Since 1992, Brain Train has pioneered special features to help a student pass the University of the Philippines College Admission Test (UPCAT) and make it to the campus of their choice. 

  • Close UPCAT simulations

    Our practice test sheets look like the real thing, and must be answered within UP time limits. Exams are corrected the UP way.

  • Brain Train UPG

    To enter any of UP’s seven campuses, one must achieve the University Predicted Grade (UPG) for that particular campus.  We give each student his or her own Brain Train UPG to help them decide which campus and course to choose – thereby maximizing one’s chances of making it to UP.

  • College Course Guide

    A good fit between the student and the course is critical to college success. Brain Train provides hard-to-find information on what students can expect from every course, and tips on which UP campus / course to choose to increase chances of success.

The teachers, in terms of classroom management, were excellent, and without a doubt, the best teachers I’ve ever encountered.

Akala ko madugo at masakit sa ulo, pero dahil sa mga teachers, naging bearable ang mga mahihirap na lessons. I would recommend BT for my juniors as their review center for CETs.

All teachers were fun and interactive with the students, which made learning more efficient. They gave us a lot of tips and shortcuts which were not usually taught in school.

I’ve learned very efficient and helpful techniques! The teachers all seem to love what they’re doing, which makes the students enthusiastic about various subject matters.
