UST had a lackluster performance in the recent licensure examination for librarians, recording the lowest passing rate since 2008.

This year’s passing rate was only 38.78 percent, lower than last year’s 53.85 percent, 2009’s 61 percent, and 2008’s 54 percent.

Only 19 out of 49 examinees passed, 18 of them first-timers. Only one out of eight repeaters passed.

The national passing rate went up slightly to 27.62 percent from last year’s 27.32 percent as 211 out of 764 examinees passed.

The Varsitarian sought College of Education Dean Clotilde Arcangel for comment but she has yet to respond.

For the first time in four years, no Thomasian entered the top 10.

UST’s Edward Puzon landed on the tenth place in 2008, Anna Peñaranda placed seventh in 2009, and Kriste Ma. Fevie Macasaet placed ninth place last year.

The University of the Philippines-Diliman has been the only top-performing school in the licensure exam since 2009. Reden D. Madrid
