UPgrade is a series of review sessions for 4th year high school students aimed to prepare them for their upcoming college entrance exams. It serves as an avenue for resident members and alumni to share their knowledge, insights and experiences to aspiring students who are in the phase of choosing their future paths.

This year, UP CIEM continues its promise of promoting academic excellence not only for the members but also for incoming college students as they conduct UPgrade 2013: Boost Your Brainpower. Held at the International Christian School in Novaliches, Quezon City from June 29 to July 27. It started off with a diagnostic exam, assessing the strengths and weaknesses of the students in different subject areas. This was followed by a series of lectures on Math, Science, Filipino, and English. After the lecture series, the students were given a mock examination to test how well they have improved and how prepared they were for the actual college entrance exam.
