16 October 2015, 6:00 am – THE UNIVERSITY was hailed as the second top-performing school in the recent board examinations for certified public accountants, with two Thomasians entering the top 10.

UST posted a 95.29-percent passing rate, with 364 out of 382 Thomasian examinees making the cut. This was significantly higher than last year’s 67.53-percent passing rate, in which 52 out of 77 examinees passed the exam.

Last year, the UST Alfredo M. Velayo-College of Accountancy added another year to its curriculum. As a result, Thomasian examinees last year were composed of those who did not graduate on time and repeaters.

May Anne Reyes led this year’s batch of Thomasian accountants, placing seventh with a score of 91.29 percent. At eighth place was Ma. Rosa Reyes who got a score of 91.14 percent.

The University of the Philippines-Diliman remained the top-performing school with a 98.70-percent passing rate. 76 out of 77 UP examinees passed the exams.

The national passing rate improved to 41.06-percent (5,468 passers out of 13,317 examinees) from last year’s 37.02 percent (4,123 passers out of 11,137 examinees). Danielle Ann F. Gabriel
