UNLIKE UST’s remarkable results in the Medical Technology and Master Plumber exams, the University posted only a 76 percent passing rate in the Chemistry licensure exam with no Thomasians landing on the top ten.

Out of 45 UST examinees, 11 failed, 10 of them first-timers.

David Peralta of Ateneo de Manila University topped the exam, garnering 90.25 percent.

The University of the Philippines-Diliman, Ateneo de Manila University, and the University of the Philippines–Los Baños were the top three performing schools.

UST dominated the med-tech board exam with six Thomasians landing on the top ten.

Leading the 699 passers with a score of 87.30 percent was Thomasian Mary Lou Anne Cabacang; followed by Oliver Lubiano, 87 percent; Jacqueline Mupas, 86.60 percent; and Mary Rose Lacanin, 86.40 percent. Two alumni ranked ninth and tenth: namely Engelbert Perillo and Jean Tee.

The other four positions in the top ten were bagged by the University of Negros Occidental–Recoletos, University of San Agustin, University of the Philippines–Manila, and Centro Escolar University.

UST was the top performing school with 142 passers out of 173 examinees, equivalent to an 82 percent passing rate.

Cabacang, a magna cum laude graduate, said her learning techniques helped her top the exam. “I wrote my reviewers in huge manila papers and posted them around my room so I could easily remember them. My family supported me all along.”

UST, meanwhile, posted a 100 percent passing rate in the Master Plumber exam, way better than the 39.16 percent national passing rate. Thomasian Jay Ryan Santos topped the exam, with a grade of 81.20 percent. All four Thomasians who took the exam passed.
