THE UNIVERSITY produced 139 new certified public accountants (CPAs) in the May 2024 licensure examinations, good for a 65.26-percent passing rate.

The number of Thomasian passers in the May 2024 exams came from a pool of 213 examinees.

While UST’s passing rate was lower than the 76.9-percent rating recorded in October 2023, it surpassed the 30.28-percent national passing rate for the recent exam cycle.

No school met the criteria to be listed among the top-performing schools — a passing rate of 80 percent or higher and 50 or more examinees.

Sharing the No. 1 spot were Nicole Gonzales of the University of the Cordilleras and Hazel Sera of the Polytechnic University of the Philippines Santa Mesa, who both scored 90.83 percent.

Out of 10,421 examinees nationwide, 3,155 passed the recent exam cycle.

The overall passing rate decreased from the 31.37-percent average in October 2023, when there were 2,740 passers out of 8,734 examinees.

The May 2024 licensure examinations for CPAs were held from May 26 to 28.
