Next Semester Classes Will Now Start In August 2014?
Top universities in the Philippines are considering a change of academic calendar from June-March to August-June, but there are no finalities yet.
To be at par with neighboring ASEAN countries that start classes in August, DLSU, UP, UST and other schools think it could be high time.
Citizens are approving of the idea while others thought of the repercussions including CHED who is worried about licensure exams.
