A GROUP of senior accountancy students placed third in the Exceed 2022 Accounting Challenge: Quiz Bee hosted by the Junior Philippine Institute of Accountants – De La Salle University (JPIA-DLSU) on May 21 via Zoom.

The team of Rovi Vitug, Ephraim Salvador and Matthew Obligacion competed against 73 other teams from 42 schools from all over the country.

“Unexpected [‘yung panalo] kasi may mga topics pa rin na hindi naman namin natackle sa mga courses namin. Sa dami ng teams na very competent, talagang mababa lang ang chance na makapasok kami,” Salvador told the Varsitarian.

Accountancy students Charles Mina, Joseph Ogrimen, Rainier Balistoy, James Martin, Raena Panganiban, and Marc Caperlac also joined the quiz competition.

Students from the University of the Philippines Visayas Tacloban College bagged the quiz bee championship, while Pamantasan ng Lungsod ng Maynila’s representatives finished second.

The champion team received a cash prize of P9,000, while the second-and third-placers received P6,000 and P3,000, respectively.
