The Philippine Science High School (PSHS) is now accepting applications for its National Competitive Examination (NCE). PSHS is a public high school that offers scholarships to Filipino students who are gifted in the sciences and mathematics. According to Wikipedia, graduates of the PSHS are bound by law to major in the pure and applied sciences, mathematics, or engineering upon entering college.
