04 December 2012, 4:17 p.m. – TWO THOMASIANS barged into the top 10 of the recent licensure examination for chemical engineers, but the University failed to be named as a top-performing school.

Leading the new batch of Thomasian engineers are Daryl Carillo, who scored 80.80 percent, and Jerome Magpayo, who got an 80.70-percent mark. Carillo and Magpayo placed seventh and eighth, respectively.

The University improved its passing rate to 60.50 percent, as 72 out of 119 Thomasian examinees passed. This was a few notches up from last year’s 59.74 percent, wherein 46 out of the 77 examinees passed the exam.

UST did not qualify as a top-performing school as it did not meet the requirement of the Professional Regulation Commission of a passing rate of at least 80 percent.

Meanwhile, the national passing rate went up to 54.83 percent as 426 out of 777 examinees made the cut. Last year, 301 out of 638 examinees passed the exam, equivalent to a 47.17-percent passing rate. Cez Mariela Teresa G. Verzosa
