This paper has the main purpose of determining relationships between the various fields in Mindanao State University- System Admission and Scholarship Examination (MSU-SASE)/College Entrance Test (CET) such as Language Usage, Mathematics, Science, and Abstract Reasoning and the final grades of the basic Math courses such as Math 1, Math 2, and Math 17. Respondents considered in this study were the 1st takers of the said subjects during the 1st semester A.Y. 2010-2011. This study was conducted to help improve the admission process of the students in the different academic program. It aimed to minimize the failure ratings in Math 1, Math 2, and Math 17 by active learning and formative assessment. It will serve as guide for the advisers and a student to decide which Math courses he/she is ready to enroll. This research sought to determine the relationship between the two variables with the use of Somer’s d correlation. Furthermore, with the use of discriminant analysis, it aimed to find a model that will be used to classify/ predict future enrollees in Math whether they will likely pass or fail in Math given their scores in SASE or CET.
