Nov. 25, 2014, 3:51 p.m. – THE UNIVERSITY improved its passing rate
in the November 2014 licensure examinations for chemical engineers, with three
Thomasians entering the top 10.

UST recorded a 69.12-percent passing rate
or 94 passers out of 136 examinees, higher than last year’s 58.97-percent
passing rate or 69 passers out of 117 examinees, results from the Professional
Regulation Commission showed.

Second-placer Joseph John Liwanagan led
the new batch of Thomasian chemical engineers with a score of 83.40 percent.
Other Thomasians who made it to the list were Francis Jessy Liggayu at seventh
place (82.80 percent) and William Macasero Jr. at ninth place (82.50 percent).

Last year, no Thomasian made it to the top

However, UST failed to crack the list of
top-performing schools, where the University of the Philippines-Diliman again
dominated with a 91.76-percent passing rate or 78 passers out of 85 examinees.

The national passing rate rose to 68.43
percent or 596 passers out of 871 examinees from last year’s 58.31 percent or
428 passers out of 734 examinees. Arianne F. Merez
