I am sure we took had different paths that ended us up a DOST scholar. So, umpisahan ko na!

DOST scholars should be in the the top 15 graduating high school students diba? Pero not me, I dont even have an award for crying out loud! Blue_PDT_01_06

I was not given an DOST application form Blue_PDT_01_13 . Reserved lang kasi sa mge Top 15 students... hehehe.
But I managed to request an application form from DOST office directly (astig!) Blue_PDT_01_18 , kasi I was once a DOST regional science quiz ball champion, so I have friends from high places. heheheh.. Blue_PDT_01_03

Our principal, or school director didn't signed my application form. Pero my physics teacher did. She even encouraged me to take the exam. hehehe teachers pet. Blue_PDT_01_02

Sa school namin, ako lang ang nakakuha ng 5 year contract. There were others who got the 3 year contracts too. hehehe, tsamba! or tirada! Blue_PDT_01_06

I also got scholarships grants from MSU-IIT, CMU and other universities. Pero I ended up at AMA Computer College, hoping na magka-classmate kami ni Jolina. Blue_PDT_01_11

Sa pagkaka alam ko Top 5% ang kinukuha ng DOST-SEI, pero kahit hindi ok lang, di naman ganun ka strict ang pre-qualification ng DOST-SEI. Marami ding mga questions sa application form na pwede mo namang dayain.. Hehehe.. pero ako di ako nandaya ha.

Sa exam naman, sa palagay ko chamba lang.. hehehe.. wala lang ^_^ Pero atleast naging DOST scholar ako at naka tulong sa aking mga magulang. Diba? less gasto na ^_^

Nasa top din ata ako, pero sa amin dati, di umabot ang DOST forms eh, kaya dalawa lang nabigyan, at ginawa ko nun, nagpa photocopy ako, at nag baka sakali na tanggapin at makapasa sa exam. Ayun! sinwerte at naging Scholar! weeeeeeeee!!!

nice thread neolle.

eto naman kwento ko... hehehe

i really havent heard about this scholarship during high school. not until 4th year.
yung Physics teacher ko and Adviser at the same time, informed the whole class about the DOST scholarship. dati daw talga walang naging interesado. like as usual wala na naman except for 2 of us nung kasama kong nagtake. 2 lang talga kami. i really have to take the scholarship kasi i know for sure na i wouldnt be able to take college kasi wala kami pera. poor lang po kami.
actually yung application forms nun pwede lang photocopy sa lahat ng mga intersado pero xempre upper 20% lang daw pwede. although top 2 ako sa class namin pero yung isa hmmm upper 20 din naman ata yun eh..
ambait din nung teacher ko coz she was really supportive. xempre if ul pass d scholarship xempre proud xa kasi nga Science teacher xa.
so ayun, the day of the exam na, i took it really seriously.
months passed by wala pa rin ako narinig na balita sa results, nawalan na ako ng gana, parang binalewala ko na.
came that day na dumating yung results, wala akong kaalam alam. naglaro kami basketball sa plaza with my friends tas bili kami ice water after ng game dun sa tindahan ng elem teacher ko. i was glad na she still remember me and my name. Oist <my> teka may ipapakita ako sau pasado ka sa scholarship sabay abot sa Manila Bulletin na newspaper. sobrang gulat at tuwa ako, drecho akong uwi para ipakita ke mama. xempre i havent forgot to thanked my elem/library teacher. blessing talga xa kasi wala kami pera to buy newspaper so kung di dahil sa knya wala akong kaalam alam na nakapasa pala ako. pero sabagay naka receive din naman tau lahat ng letters eh hehehe.
3 yrs lang sakin pero OK na OK na rin. even though i dont have degree kasi Diploma lang sakin kasi nga 3 years lng pero u stil can get a high-paying job (xempre call center ahehehe) tsaka u can get a position na Eng'r sa call center kahit ndi ka engineer sa totoong buhay waheheheh..
right now, im a Staff Engineer for Internet Products with Verizon working on CISCO devices, networking, routers, switches, configurations and all.
thanks really to DOST kasi i was able to get to college.

Sige, eto naman ang story ko...

Wala akong idea noon tungkol sa DOST scholarship. Isang araw, nagulat nalang ako nang i-announce ng teacher ko na isa raw ako sa mga qualified students to take the DOST scholarship exam. Naglululundag ako sa tuwa nang marinig ko ang balitang iyon habang sumisigaw ng "yahoo! yes! yes! yes! huuuhhh! yes!". Then nag-pause ako sa pag-express ng aking kagalakan, sabay tanong sa teacher, "Maam, ano ba ang DOST?"

Examination day na, year 2000. Natakot ako nang malaman ko na ang mga kasama ko sa school na mag-e-exam din ay nag-review pala, ako hindi, waahh!!! Binasa ng mga schoolmates ko ang mga official high school textbook mula pang first year hanggang pang fourth year. The fact na nag-review sila ng ganoon, it signifies na ganoon kahirap ang exam at ako ay hindi man lang nakapag-review. Waaahhh!! Gusto kong maiyak that day kasi feeling ko'y wala na akong pag-asang makapasa. Ipinagpasa-Dios ko nalang ang araw na yun.

Nag-advise ang school teacher ko na kapag tinanong daw sa questionnaire kung anong type of course ang gusto naming i-pursue, ang piliin raw namin ay vocational kasi raw, maraming bumabagsak sa exam sa mga pumili ng bachelor's degree or engineering.

Nung nag-e-exam na, napansin ko na ang mga questions ay more on IQ test type of questions than being book-centric. Buti nalang, hindi kasi ako nag-review eh. Hehehe. Pero sa isang banda, nababahala parin ako kasi marami akong hindi nasagutan lalo na sa linguistic section ng exam at samahan pa na ako'y nate-tense that time. Ang isa pang nakaka-tense dun ay yung time. Tingin ako ng tingin sa oras. Tapos napapansin ko pa sa mga katabi ko na mayat-maya ang pag-lipat nila ng pages ng questionnaire ibig sabihin, mabilis silang magsagot tapos ako naman ay mabagal. Grabe, nakaka-tense. Binubulong ko nalang sarili ko, "take your time, take your time." Maya-maya pa, tapos na halos lahat ng examinees. Mabibilang ko nalang kaming mga natitira. Bulong nalang ulit ako sa sarili ko, "may oras pa, take your time, take your time."

After ng exam, malungkot ako. Feeling ko hindi ako papasa. Nahirapan ako sa mga tanong, marami akong hinulaan, marami akong nalaktawan na hindi na nabalikan, at hindi ko pa talaga natapos dahil nabitin ako sa time.

One day, sa school, My teacher told us that three from our school passed the DOST scholarship examination. Hindi pumasa yung valedictorian namin, feeling ko tuloy, lalong hindi rin ako pumasa. Binanggit na yung pangalan ng dalawang nakapasa, isang pangalan nalang ang babanggitin at hindi ko na inaasahang pangalan ko yun. Nakaupo at nakayuko nalang ako habang pinapaikot sa aking mga daliri ang ballpen. Binanggit ng teacher ko ang pangalan ng pangatlong nakapasa at.... ako yun! Bigla akong napatayo. Napatitig ako sa teacher ko na parang nakakita ng isang sadako -- shocking! Kung noo'y napalundag ako sa kagalakan nang malaman kong qualified akong mag-take ng exam, ngayo'y parang mapapalugmok naman ako sa sahig ng malaman kong nakapasa pala ako. Speechless at di makapaniwala. Mixed emotions.

Maraming kapit-bahay ko ang nagsabi na narinig daw nila ang pangalan ko na inanounce sa radio. Tapos pinakita pa ng kapitbahay ko yung isang dyaryo at nandoon ang pangalan ko. Out of hundreds of students na nag-exam sa probinsiya namin, isa ako sa 20 na nakapasa. Hindi ko na sasabihin kung ano ang probinsiya ko at baka malaman niyo pa ang pangalan ko. hehehe.

Utang ko sa Dios ang kapalarang ito. Wala akong capability at alam ko yun. Naawa siya at dininig niya ang prayer ko. Mahirap lang kasi kami at sa aming siyam na magkakapatid, ako lang ang nakapag-aral more than high school.Salamat sa Dios at sa programang ito ng gobyerno.

Computer Technology ang course na kinuha ko.

Hehehe.... ang dami pala nating may mga similar experience... Actually, virtually unknown sakin ung DOST Scholarship until one day nag announce ung school at dalawa lang kami na binigyan ng form Blue_PDT_01_08 at parang di naman nila ini expect na makakapasa talaga kami (di ba dapat ung top 5%) anyway medyo late na rin ung pagsubmit namin... we almost missed that oppurtunity (just d way we've missised the UPCAT).[img]
SHOCKING TALAGA ung Exam!!! although sanay na akong di nagrereview (kc di ako ngsusulat ng lecture) parang challenging talaga ung exam. Fortunately, wala akong blanks at marami dun sa mga sagot ko, confident naman ako... hehehe...
Basta proud talaga ako na nakapasa ako dun sabi nila mas strict daw ung sa SEI-merit kaya nga parang ngdoubt pa ako kung tama ba ung nilagay ko sa form. Before Accountancy ung kinuha ko sa University of San Carlos may iba pa kasi akong scholarship tapos hayun biglang pinatransfer ako ng parents ko. But anyway, heto na ako 4th year na sa Computer Engineering... Khit medyo pasaway, hehehe..[/img]

Ang saya naman ng mga experiences niyo.. lalo na ikaw truthoriented.. biruin mo parang nakita mo si sadako! bwahahahaah! Blue_PDT_01_04

Ako naman.. mahabang story.. pero papa ikliin ko lang.. pare pareho lang ata tayong lahat... di nag expect na makapasa... hehe.. pero isusulat ko din dito bat ako naging DOST scholar. Ahmmm.. ganito kasi yun.. may dalawang form na dumating sa skul namin, dalawa lang.. so yung Top 1 and 2 lang binigyan.. sa kasamaang palad.. Top 3 lang ako noong 2nd grading ata yun.. hehehe.. hanggang sa last grading top 3 rin ata ako.. naging 2 lang kasi sa extra curricular activities. Kaya yun.. wala akong form, at sinabihan ko yung teacher namin if pwede me hingi ng form. kasi sayang din opportunity eh, di na nga naka take ng UPCAT kasi late na dumating yung form sa probinsya namin, di pa makaka take ng DOST.. amf naman yun.. kaya after nun.. natapos ko yung DOST form na yun for 1 week ata, dami kasi requirements, then after ilang months, exam na!!! kaya pumunta na kami ng classmates ko para mag exam, bali 5 ata kami nag take, then 3 ang nakapasa, ako 3-years lang nakuha ko yung dalawa BS, kaso wala di din tinuloy ng isa, at ang isa, di na kinaya yung BS kaya di din natapos at nag shift ng course, kaya masaya ako kasi natapos ko yung DOST kahit 3 years lang.. so ibig sabihin, parang ako lang mag isa ang nakapasa.. wahahahaha! Blue_PDT_01_04 pero before papala nun.. 100% di na ako nag expect na pumasa.. kasi sa last page ng exam nakasulat.. there are no wrong or right answers, kaya sinagot ko 3 3 3 3 3 3 3 3 lahat,, tapos sa isang column, 1 1 1 1 1, so it means na highly agree yung 1, sa middle yung 3, at strongly disagree yung 5, halos 3 3 3 3 3 3 at 1 1 1 1 1 lang sagot ko.. i think karamihan 1 1 1 1 din, tapos nung nabasa ko yung tanong.. meron palang "I LOVE MATHEMATICS" tapos sa likod "I HATE MATHEMATICS" tapos highly agree ako sa dalawa! toink!!! adek talaga ako.. sira na future ko...! halatang di nag basa ng mga tanong! di naman talaga ako nagbasa.. kasi sabi pa lang sa instructions there are no wrong or right.. so assumed na na tama lahat ng sagot ko.. ang bilis ko natapos sa last page.. kasi kampante ako na tama lahat.. nalaman ko lang na mali pala lahat sagot ko.. nung nabasa ko na mga tanong.. kaso wala nang time.. kaya babay DOST na ako :(

peroooOOOOOOOOO.. isang araw may nag text sa akin na friend ko.. ayun!! nakapasa daw! so kinonfirm namin ng mama ko.. at tiningnan sa diyaryo.. nakapasa nga! hahahah! naka chamba pa si Jehzeel at pumasa kahit mali mali sa likod.. hehe.. kaya yun.. masaya me.. at proud na proud maging dost technician scholar.. hanggang ngayon, graduate na.. at naka work agad after graduation.. ^_^ Blue_PDT_01_12 Thanks to DOST ^__^ at sa SEI... ahmm.. to make it long.. DOST-SEI hehehehe.. Blue_PDT_01_16

Post how i end up as a DOST scholar? Reply with quote
I came from a school w/ a population of more 10k.Bragging aside, I was fortunate to be a part of the section 1.We're all required to take the Exam.My family's not well off, so I really need to have a scholarship for me to pursue college.I remember , we're supposed to take our exam on Nov 2000, but then it was moved to Feb 2002.It was almost deadline when I submitted my form.My parents were not even aware that I applied for that scholarship.According to the DOST staff that I talked to, I belong to Class A,meaning greater chance of getting in, provided that I'll be able to pass the exam.They released the resutls around April.I was so surprised when I saw my name listed as part of the DOST passers for Region IV! I was lucky to be part of the Class A.A 5-yr Science Oriented course of my choice!!!.
Twist of fate though,I ended up in a Technical School.I had to convert my 5-yr course to a 3 yr technical course,since my course in UP is an AB.But I have no regrets.I'm just thankful that I became a DOST Scholar.I wouldn't have finished college or be where I am now if not for it.Too bad I didn't get to see the newspaper when they released the results. Do any of you guys have a copy of the 2001 DoST Passers?If you have, can you at least send me a copy thru my email? jhesie25@yahoo.com.I would really appreciate it.Thanks :)
