23 November 2013, 8:14 p.m. – UST’s passing rate slid in the recent chemical engineer licensure examinations, results from the Professional Regulation Commission (PRC) showed.

The University recorded a 58.97-percent passing rate as 69 out of 117 Thomasian examinees made the cut. This was lower than last year’s 60.50 percent, in which 72 passed out of 119 examinees.

There were no Thomasians in the top 10. Last year, two UST graduates topped the exams.

The University of the Philippines-Diliman emerged as the only top-performing school, recording a 95.95-percent passing rate equivalent to 71 passers out of 74 examinees. The PRC requires at least an 80-percent passing rate and a minimum of 50 examinees to be declared a top-performing school.

The national passing rate rose to 58.31 percent with 428 passers out of 734 examinees, up from last year’s 54.83 percent equivalent to 426 passers out of 777 examinees. Lord Bien G. Lelay
