UST improves in Chemistry boards

Oct. 10, 2014, 8:29 p.m. - THE UNIVERSITY improved its passing rate in the 2014 licensure examination for chemists, with two Thomasians entering the top 10.

UST posted a 78.26-percent passing rate, or 36 passers out of 46 examinees, which was higher than last year’s 63.83 percent or 30 passers out of 40 examinees, results from the Professional Regulation Commission showed.

Thomasians top Chemistry and MedTech board exams

FOR THE FIRST time, a Biochemistry graduate from the Faculty of Pharmacy landed in the top 10 of this year’s Chemistry Licensure Examination.

Ma. Irene Dela Cruz ranked fourth in the board exam with 88 percent. She was the only Thomasian who made it to the top 10.

Last year, magna cum laude graduate Donnabel Kuizon from the College of Science topped the board examination.

According to Biochemistry department head Dr. Mafel Ysrael, it was not really expected that Dela Cruz would make it in the top 10.

THOMASIANS registered noteworthy performances in the Chemist (Chem), Medical Technologist (Med Tech), and Physician licensure examinations last August and September.

Hannah Charlene Vergara placed second in the Chem board exams, registering a 91.25 per cent mark, while Felicidad Christina Ramirez tied with two others at sixth with an 88.75 per cent score.
