UP MBA Proficiency Exam Reviewer

UP MBA Proficiency Exam Reviewer

This UP MBA Proficiency Exam Reviewer article was written on March 25, 2013 and updated on March 24, 2020

I vividly remember the time when I took the UP MBA Proficiency Exam. The thing I remember the most is that I hope that I have a UP MBA Proficiency Exam Reviewer!

I was jittery back then, but I was feeling confident that I will somehow pass the UP MBA Proficiency Exam.

I didn’t really take too much time to study algebra in detail, as I knew I’ve aced the UP MBA GPAT. The bulk of the UP MBA GPAT quantitative exam in algebra questions.

Plus, I never had a UP MBA Reviewer for the Proficiency Exam, hence, relying on what I just remember.

Then …..  I WAS WRONG! I eventually flunked the algebra part of the UP MBA Proficiency Exam, in which I needed to retake after the UP MBA workshops.

I somehow remember one question from the Algebra part of the UP MBA proficiency exam reviewer –  the Mensa Question.  

Honestly, it gave me headaches when I first read the question.

It said, quoted in parenthesis, in the first part of the question that “the question is very easy but you will need your imagination and creativity to answer this question correctly“.

I did use my imagination on my first try, but in the end, my answer is incorrect (better imagination maybe?).  When the question was discussed in the UP MBA Workshop, I felt so clueless that the question is so easy to answer.

Try it yourself.

Maybe this can help you and be an important part of your UP MBA Reviewer! A similar question, though not 100% identical to the UP MBA Proficiency Exam Question, and its solution is written below.  

Just one suggestion, PLEASE read the problem first, try to answer it then compare your answers to the solutions.

The Mensa toy store is having a special sale of used toys. Everybody is confused about the prices. At this sale, a TRUCK costs $220, a CART costs $170, and a BALL costs $170. How much would a SHOVEL (the kind a child might use at the beach) cost under the Mensa system of setting prices? What would a TRAIN cost? What would a TEDDY BEAR cost?

  • This is a system of equations problem. In this case, we need to set-up at least 2 equations. In order to do that, we need to use our imagination and creativity.
  • Your creativity will be needed in the assumption of variables. Now, let us define two unknowns: one for consonants and one for vowels, or C and V variables respectively.
  • Our system of equations is:
  1. 4C + 1V = 220 (Truck)
  2. 3C + 1V = 170 (Ball)
  3. 3C + 1V = 170 (Cart)
  • Now, we have 2 equations with 2 unknowns! ( #2 & #3 are the same) We can now solve for the value of a consonant and a vowel (variables C and V).
  • Using algebra, we can solve for the variable V by simplifying equation #2. The resulting equation is: V = -3C + 170
  • We then substitute the resulting value of V to the variable V found in equation #1. The equation looks like:

4C + 1(-3C + 170) = 220     >>>      4C – 3C = 220 – 170     >>>     C = 50

  • We now have the value for C, which is $50. We now substitute the value of C to equation #2 to determine the value of V.

3 (50) + 1V = 170    >>>    150 + V = 170    >>>      V = 170 – 150    >>>    V = 20

  • Given that we know the value for each variable, we can now answer the main question of the problem, which to know the prices of a TRUCK  and a TEDDY BEAR.
  • By direct substitution, the prices, or the answers to our Mensa Problem, are:

TRAIN = 3C + 2V    >>>   3 (50) + 2 (20)   >>>  150 + 40   >>>   TRUCK = $190.00

TEDDY BEAR = 6C + 3V   >>>   6 (50) + 3 (20)   >>>   300 + 60   >>>    TEDDY BEAR = $360.00

Looking back, it was truly a great learning experience!

If only I encountered it in a UP MBA Reviewer.

Though I seemed to look crap in answering trick questions like those back then, it further helped me in dissecting and analyzing trick problems better; more so when I was accepted in the UP MBA Program.

The UP MBA Proficiency Exam also helped me gauge what subjects I need to sharpen my brain-tools on, in preparation for the grueling task of finishing the UP MBA program.


If you landed here just to find an MBA proficiency exam reviewer, you can check out the proficiency exam reviewers I used last 2012. Remember, I used this in 2012 and the exam questions may change this year.

  1. Sir,
    I’m about to take my GPAT Exam this February 9. Somehow I feel like my boss is discouraging me since the Sales field is really unpredictable (I’m from Sales department) and there is no certainty if I could apply the things that I will learn in the Grad School in our activities.. I would like to hear your thoughts please if it is worth it for Sales people to take up an MBA course.

    Thank you for your attentions.

    1. Hi Ginny!

      It is understandable that bosses tend to discourage. One is that their personnel would have divided attention – work and school. For me personally, its more on personal development rather than application in the short-term, most especially if you don’t decide things in your current field. The good thing is you’ll be able to understand business better than before. You’ll have a better perspective on sales in relation to all other departments. In the long run, you’ll have an advantage if you want to pursue higher a higher position or you’ll have higher chances of success when establishing your own business. So answering your question, MBA is worth it even for Sales People. In fact, I have colleagues in the same field as yours – Sales.

          1. Good day Sir RM Nisperos, I’m about to take my MBA exam this year. Can you please send me a copy of your reviewer. This will really help me a lot. Thank you in advance! God bless -Irene Perez

        2. Hi Sir,

          Thank you and God Bless.

    2. hi how can I download the reviewer? I dont seem to find the link. Also can you recommend a hard copy of reviewer? Thank you so much.

  2. Hi Sir RM, your post is really helpful. Because I really have no idea in Proficiency Test i will take this coming April 5, and i’m rushing in to reviewing
    notes and looking for blogs about UP MBA kasi i thought i did not passed the interview because i’m not included in the list of passers but when I email Ms Ida she told me i’m not included but i passed and i’m subject for proficiency test. I am super happy with her news but on the same time nervous because i’m running out of time in reviewing. Hopefully you can help me please…

      1. Hi Sir! Can I also ask for copies of your reviewer? I’ll also be taking GPAT this year. Thanks in advance! πŸ™‚

    Hi, RM.

    On Saturday, 14th of June, I will be having my 3rd retake for the proficiency test. I was browsing through available blogs in my quest for possible UP Proficiency Exam questions and I reached this page. It actually is disheartening that I had to do a 3rd retake, but I just don’t want to give up.

    It saddens me reading some blogs that workshops are offered (before) for those who failed the exam, because this year, the workshops are scheduled for those who passed the exam. Like it is explicitly mentioned that “below names are for workshops.” I was even willing to take that workshop just for me to get to UP for MBA.

    Although the 3rd retake disheartened me, I still want to do it, at least I tried, if ever I really won’t make it.

    I took the 1st proficiency exam back April of this year, then I retook it last May 24 and since I am not eligible to attend to workshops, I just had to do it on my own. My 1st take, I failed all the subjects, my 2nd take, I just passed 1 (Calculus) so I have to retake the rest of the 4 subjects this Saturday.

    Do you have sets of reviewers or were you able to come up with one? A reviewer which I can use the whole day tomorrow to ponder and study?

    Thank you in advance.

    James

    1. I think the change of workshop schedules are because of the shift in the UP academic calendar. Anyway, I have specific reviewers on proficiency exam subjects (accounting and algebra) but they are on printed material.

  4. Uhm, how did you come with those equations? Im sorry but I don’t get it. A little explanation will do. Thank you in advance hehe!

  5. Hi, Sir!

    I’m currently planning to take up MBA at UP Diliman.. (honestly, reading the gpat thing scares me) Would like to ask then where to buy reviewers if any…

    Thank you… πŸ™‚

    1. Hi vanessa! I purchased mine in National Bookstore. There are tons of choices there. I bought the cheapest one (not more than 200 pesos I think). You can also send me a message in my facebook page so I could send some reviewers I’ve downloaded years ago.

  6. Hi RM,

    Thanks for this post. Very very helpful. πŸ™‚ Anyway, I’m taking the GPAT on Apr 12, 2015 but I wanna start reviewing for that, the soonest sana. I saw in the thread above that you were able to download some materials before? Could you please please share them with me? Already added u up in Facebook.

    Thank you so much!

  23. Hi Sir,

    Just read ur article. So helpful.. Can u please send me ur soft copies of ur reviewers?
    Thank u in advance!! πŸ™‚

  24. Great job on this informative site!

    I think you made a typo on the V = 3C + 170. It should be V = 170 – 3C when 3C is transposed.

    But I really hated it, that they would consider an IQ question for this.

    I got my undergrad from UP CBA (now Virata) and would like to continue post-grad either with MS Fin or MBA. Still deciding on which but since I work the usual 8 to 5, I’ll go with the Evening programs.

    Hey may I also request for a reviewer as well? I’m also actively searching for reviewers in Google but the more tests I can study beforehand the better: rdmatter@yahoo.com

    Thank you in advance and more power to you as an E-entrepreneur! (saw your impressive resume btw!)

      1. Hi Sir RM

        I’ve just applied to the MS Finance Program the last minute haha

        I still haven’t received your sample reviewers yet, may I follow up on them? I’m cramming now haha

        rdmatter@yahoo.com

        Thank you and more power!

  25. Hi Sir,

    Been following your blog since last year especially for UP MBA posts. Will also take the exam next month. Can you please share your reviewers?

    Thanks in advance!

  26. Hi! Thank you for the great tips, I’ll be taking the exam this year.. Will it be possible to get a copy of your reviewer? πŸ˜€

  27. Hi RM,

    Great article! Very informative. I’m taking the exam on 4/12, and I don’t know how to prepare for the exam.

    I just want to ask if you happen to know if the GPAT for MS Fin is the same as the one for the MBA. If so, can you please also send me soft copies of your reviewer?

    Thank you for your time. πŸ™‚

    1. Hi Ted! I just sent you some of the reviewers I used when I took GPAT. You can check my latest article on how I prepared for GPAT: GPAT is the same for MBA and MS Fin. Good luck!

  59. Hi! Thank you for your post! Can I also have a copy of the reviewer you’ve used for the proficiency exam?

    1. I’m still searching for the reviewers I used. I’ll update you once I have them. In the meantime, just review on Accounting, Calculus, Algebra, Math of Finance and Statistics. Don’t worry on the Proficiency Exams. UPD VSB will hold workshops on the subjects you’ll fail (if ever).

  60. Hi Sir, Im also going to get MBA program in UP, and I have no idea what should I be reviewing now, and I saw your wonderful blog and like them, I need you help to get through this, UP is my #1 target for MBA. If you’re still allowing of giving away a copy of your reviewer, I would be the happiest one. Can I also get a copy sir?

    Thank you very much!

    1. Hi Mary Rose, I commend your guts in preparing this early. I hope you will get in the program. I’m sending the reviewers now. You can contact me on facebook if you have questions.

  61. Hi Sir! May I ask if you could also give me a copy of your reviewers for proficiency exams please? πŸ™‚ Really appreciate it, thank you! πŸ™‚

    1. Hi Wizzy. Currently, I don’t have the proficiency exam reviewers with me. In the meantime, just review on Accounting, Calculus, Algebra, Math of Finance and Statistics. Don’t worry on the Proficiency Exams. UPD VSB will hold workshops on the subjects you’ll fail (if ever).

    1. Hi Jane. Currently, I don’t have the proficiency exam reviewers with me. In the meantime, just review on Accounting, Calculus, Algebra, Math of Finance and Statistics. Don’t worry on the Proficiency Exams. UPD VSB will hold workshops on the subjects you’ll fail (if ever).

  62. Hi Master RM,

    Very helpful read and thank you in advance. You seem to be very kind to animals (we hopefuls) haha. Can I request for a copy of your reviewers for the Proficiency Test?

    Thank you very much, Master.

    Kind regards,
    Mat D

    1. Currently, I don’t have the reviewers with me. In the meantime, just review on Accounting, Calculus, Algebra, Math of Finance and Statistics. Don’t worry on the Proficiency Exams. UPD VSB will hold workshops on the subjects you’ll fail (if ever). I’ll update you when I find them

    1. Hi Buloy! I’m still searching for them. For now, just review on Accounting, Calculus, Algebra, Math of Finance and Statistics. Don’t worry on the Proficiency Exams. UPD VSB will hold workshops on the subjects.

  63. Hi Sir RM,

    May I request for GPAT reviewer ? I plan to take the GPAT exam but I still haven’t reviewed anything. Thanks in advance!

  64. Hi Sir RM,

    Just took the first proficiency exam yesterday, I’m wondering if the the second test will look like. Are the questions the same? I’m not really positive on (whatever) the result may be.

    please help!

  65. Hi Sir RM,

    I’m also planning to take MBA in UP. May kindly request for a reviewer? Thank you very much.

  66. Hi Sir,

    I took my GPAT in 2012 & passed, however I wasn’t able to pass all the 5 subjects in proficiency test namely Algebra, Calculus & Stat. I took them again in 2013 but failed again since I wasn’t able to attend the reviews due to my shifting work schedules. I really want to push for my MBA in UP, pwede din po ba makahingi ng reviewer for the 3 subjects, if any?

    Thanks in advance.

  67. Hi Sir! Historically, what has been the passing rate of the first proficiency exam? I asked a friend who took MS Finance a few years ago and he said during his time it was around 50%. This year only 5/270 (<2%) on the list posted on the website passed all subjects! :-O

    1. Hi Ed!

      Expect a low passing rate on the first take of the proficiency exam. I quite sure that the passing rate for the second take will be 100% given that they attend the workshops. πŸ™‚

  68. Hi Sir RM! Can I also ask for a copy of your reviewer? Im really nervous with that GPAT. haha! Thanks po! πŸ™‚

  69. Hi, saw all the posts re the up mba gpat exam. May i also ask for a little help, if you could send me your reviewers. Thanks a lot!

    1. Hi Zher! You can download the reviewers I used when I took GPAT on the blog. Just subscribe on my blog and you’ll be redirected to the downloads page. Good luck on your MBA journey!

  70. Hi Sir RM! Can I also have a copy of reviewers you used? πŸ™‚ God bless! This will be very much appreciated.

  71. Hi Sir RM!

      1. Good Day Sir RM!

        It would be a great pleasure Sir. I’m planning to enroll next year so I still have an ample of time reviewing.

        Thanks so much Sir RM.

  72. Hi Sir RM,

  73. Hi Sir RM,

    Thank you.

  74. Hi Sir RM,

    Cheers.

  75. Hi.

    I just recently inquired about the GPAT Schedule and found out itll be on the 3rd week of Jan and 1st week of Feb. I really wanna take the exam. But im kind of worried about meeting the requirements plus if a few weeks will be enough time to review and take the exam. Do you have any advice?

    Thanks.

    1. Its a long shot but I think you should still take the exam. If ever you won’t get accepted you cna try next year. Who knows, you might get in. The GPAT is more on IQ and stocked knowledge so I think you can do it. Good luck!

  76. Hi Sir RM. I’ve been religiously reading your blogs re: UP MBA esp GPAT. I was given high hopes when the admissions allowed me to take GPAT (even if I had 2 years of work experience to date) and have it deferred by next year then. #sharing

    My question Sir is this. I don’t have Business and Accounting and Calculus subjects way back college (HINT: My undergrad is Broadcasting) and my Mathematical aptitude isn’t really that good, let’s say, FAIR. What are the chances of me passing the GPAT given all these?

    I’m quite even having second thoughts on how can I excel on the class without these knowledge at hand within me. Hope you can help me out on my dillema.

    1. Hi JR. You’re thinking of the Proficiency Exam and not GPAT. UP MBA has 2 entrance exam. First is GPAT then the Proficiency. If you pass the GPAT, you’ll probably get in the program. GPAT is a test on IQ and not just math aptitude. You just need to browse on some math problems and you’re good. To answer your question, you have the same chances as with other courses. If fact, the classmates I had has the same course as yours so just be brave and take the test!

    Hi Sir RM!

    Good day. I took the GPAT Exam last 23 January 2016. I just want to inquire if you have any reading materials or reviewers for the Proficiency Exam? I badly need those reviewers since I don’t have strong background with Algebra, Calculus, Statistics, Math of Finance and Accounting.

    I hope you can help me with this dilemma. =)

  78. Hi Sir RM!

    Could I also request for your reviewer?

    Thank you in advance and keep up the good work sir!

    Godbless you…

  86. This site is very helpful for future examinees. Too bad, I already finished the GPAT exam last Sunday, before reading your article. =(

    Hoping for positive results, though.

    Keep inspiring, Sir! =)

      1. Hi Sir RM!

        Yay! I conditionally passed the GPAT! I was a little discouraged at first but what a MIRA-cle! I was given a second chance. =)

        I will be taking the proficiency exam on Saturday and this time, I want to be more prepared than I was before. Thanks to this blog, I have some tips for the questions to come.

        But Sir, does it mean that if I fail the 5 subjects of the proficiency exam, I am still given a chance to retake it? (That is after participating in the workshops UP will be providing.)

        Hope you can shed some light on this query. Thanks in advance!

        Mira

        1. Yes, there is a retake but if you still could not pass the test, you won’t get admitted in the program. Good luck. Update me when you got in! Maybe a can share some books that I have.

  87. seems like i can’t pursue taking mba for now,
    i just graduated this year and just started working .
    looks likei still need to wait for 2 years.

  88. Hi I tried downloading your free reviewer and still waiting for me to receive it. Thank you in advance and this blog of yours really helped me a lot! πŸ™‚ Can you send me copy also just to be sure? πŸ™‚

  90. Hi do you have any reviewer for the proficiency exam? πŸ™‚ will be taking this saturday and i dont have any idea where to start:)l(

  91. Hi! Your blog is so helpful!!! Could you send me your reviewers please? I’ll be taking the proficiency test this week.. Thank you so much!

  92. Hi, Sir RM. I’ll be taking Proficiency Test this Saturday. Can you send me a copy of the reviewers, please? Thank you.

  93. Hi RM

    I’m a CPA and a portfolio officer in a well known bank but I’m already 40 y.o. Do you think it’s too late for me to take up MBA? I plan to have a teaching career when I retire and nowadays Universities require their professors to have Masteral Degrees. Thanks!

    1. It’s definitely not too late for you. In fact, I have classmates who are way older than you. If you plan to get in the MBA program and you are still thinking. I suggest just get in the program immediately and assess your position after 1 term. If you indeed want to teach in the future and you need to take an MBA. Hope this helps ))))

  94. I downloaded your free reviewer sir! Thank you for this. BTW, what a helpful blog for MBA aspirants just like me. πŸ™‚ God Bless you more!

  95. sir, my entrance exam is scheduled next week. can you give me some pointers to study or if you can let me download your GPAT reviewer … how can i download it.. thank you so much.

  96. Sir, good day!
    Thank you for this blog! Very informative.

    Btw, Sir RM, I will be taking an entrance exam for MBA candidates at USLS. Can i have please some of your GPAT reviewer pls? Plus, if you have useful materials for th course will really be of great help. Thanks in advance!

  97. Hello Sir RM. I came across to some of your post, comments, testimonials in google and I find it encouraging. I am very interested to take my MBA course in UP, however, am nervous maybe because its UP and the quality of standards is too high. As such, hope you could give me some piece of advice on how to pass the GPAT (maybe some tips or reviewer) and how to pass the whole course per se. Appreciate your revert on this.. Thank you and good morning Sir!

  98. Sir, can I ask for a copy of your reviewer? I just want to prepare for my upcoming graduate college admission test. Thank you so much!

    Hi Sir,

    I just finished the interview for the MBA program. The interviewer told me to prepare already for the proficiency exams, especially Financial Accounting (I hope that remark indicates I passed the interview lol!).
    Anyway, May I ask if you have reviewers available for the proficiency exams?

    Thanks! in advance.

  100. Hi Sir, I do not know if this blog is still active but I will still submit this comment πŸ™‚

    I will be taking the Proficiency Exam next Saturday (April 22). I am kind of nervous since I do not know what to expect and to study. Upon reading this blog, my nervousness doubles but at least I already know what to expect so I can decide on what approach to take. Thank you!

  101. Hi sir, thanks for the great insight I just downloaded the gpat reviewer! It helped my sleeping brains wake up. Super thanks!

  102. Hi, sir RM.

    Thank you so much for your reviewer. I passed the GPAT exams this year and your reviewer strongly helped me pass that. May I ask if you also have a reviewer for the proficiency exam that I can use? From the example above it seems really difficult. Hope you see my comment. Thanks in advance!

  103. How did you came up with the following equations?
    I wanted to understand where we get the “4C” , “3C” and “1V”

    4C + 1V = 220 (Truck)
    3C + 1V = 170 (Ball)
    3C + 1V = 170 (Cart)
