12 November 2012, 1:58 p.m. – THE UNIVERSITY redeemed itself in the 2012 licensure examination for librarians after a poor showing last year.

UST posted an 81.58 percent overall passing rate – its best since 2008 – as 31 out of 38 Thomasian examinees passed. This was a huge jump from 38.78 percent last year, wherein only 19 examinees out of 49 made the cut.

The University placed third on the list of top-performing schools, trailing behind the University of the Philippines-Diliman, which obtained a 100-percent passing rate, and the Mindanao State University in Lanao del Sur which had 85.71 percent.

The national passing rate, meanwhile, went up to 46.67 percent from last year’s 27.62 percent. A total of 379 out of 812 examinees passed. Cez Mariela Teresa G. Verzosa
