A THOMASIAN topped the June 2022 licensure examinations for occupational therapists (OTs), while two other Thomasians ranked third in the physical therapy (PT) licensure examinations, in which the University tallied a 100-percent passing rate.

Anne Lariosa led the country’s newest batch of OTs with a score of 81 percent. The only other topnotcher was Bryan Geguinto of Emilio Aguinaldo College – Manila, who scored 80 percent.

UST’s passing rate in the OT board dipped to 61.54 percent, or eight of 13 examinees, from December 2021’s 88.9 percent, or 48 of 54 examinees. But UST’s passing rate was almost double the national average of 35.63 percent or 88 out of 247 examinees.

The national passing rate slipped from 70.75 percent in 2021.

Thomasians Yuji Espejo and Krisma Ponsaran tied for No. 3 in the PT board with 87.55-percent scores.

UST posted a perfect passing rate in the PT exams after all 18 Thomasian examinees passed, but did not make it to the top-performing schools’ list as it failed to meet the requirement of having at least 20 passers.

Jean Razon from the University of the Philippines – Manila (UP Manila) topped the PT licensure exams with a score of 88.05 percent.

UP Manila was the top-performing school in both the OT and PT licensure exams with 92.86-percent passing rates in both, or 13 out of 14 examinees in the OT exams and 26 out of 28 examinees in the PT exams.

The national passing rate in the PT licensure exam slid to 54.65 percent, or 564 out of 1,032 examinees, from 68.97 percent, or 978 out of 1,418 examinees, in 2021.

The exams were held from June 3 to 4.
