The purpose of this study was to assess the degree to which university entrance exam result (UEER) and preparatory class average score (PCAS) predict success in college academic performance. The subjects of this study were 484 students. The data were collected from the Registrar Office. Correlation and regression analyses were employed on the data. The results indicated that PCAS and UEER in order as selection instruments appeared to be valid predictors of first year college CGPA and jointly accounted for 33.70 percent of the variation in college performance. Besides, PCAS was found out to be more important than UEER as admission variable. Based on the findings recommendations were forwarded.
