The DOST-Philippine Science High School (PSHS) System has recently released the summary of the 2014 National Competitive Examination (NCE) held last October 2014 for the information and reference of the examinees.

To be considered as a principal qualifier, the examinee should have a total score that is greater than or equal to the cut-off score of his/her choice campus, and his/her score per subject.  For example, the sub-tests on Quantitative Ability, Verbal Attitude, Scientific Ability and Abstract Reasoning should be greater than or equal to the national mean score of the sub-test.

How to determine the principal qualifiers?

In the case of the Main Campus, all examinees are ranked from highest to lowest by means of national ranking.  The mean score for each of the sub-tests and the total score define the national mean score of that sub-test or total score.

The total score of the 240th examinee who satisfied the aforementioned conditions is determined and is referred to as the national cut-off score for the Main Campus.

In the case of the Regional Campus, all the examinees who have chosen the campus will be ranked from highest to lowest by regional ranking.

The total score of the 90th examinee who satisfied the aforementioned conditions is determined and referred to as the regional campus cut-off.

The following are the list of cut-off score per campus:
