Photo by Juan Miguel Santos.THE FACULTY of Pharmacy is considering to increase the cutoff scores to 70% and might implement the readjustment next semester or next Academic Year, Faculty Secretary Rhona Ramos told TomasinoWeb.However, Ramos said that nothing has been official.“Napag-usapan sa Dean’s [Office] na balak itaas [ang cutoff grade], but not [for] now,” Ramos said, adding that the Faculty will be retaining its 60% cutoff grade.“I think mas gusto ng Council na itaas na para they (the students) are ready for the board exams,” she said.She also said that the Faculty is also being careful with cutoff adjustments so as not to risk the grades and the quality of students.“Tutulungan lang din na tumaas yung scores [ng mga estudyante] but not to the point na tumaas [ang cutoff scores] tapos ‘pag maraming bumagsak ibababa ulit natin ‘yung passing grade,” she said.Ramos said that students find it hard to hit the currently implemented 60% cutoff grade because of the demands of their minor subjects.But regardless, she believes that their professors can help them hit the 70% cutoff grade should it push through.“I think tataas din naman yung help na maibibigay naming teachers for them to achieve that score. Siyempre hindi naman namin sila pababayan.”The Faculty is also mulling to add new programs, but they have yet to decide on it.READ The Amazing Spider-Man 2: Not That Electrifying“This is to answer the needs of the industry kasi marami rin ang may gusto mag-track into Pharmacy Management [at] marami nang specialized practices sa Pharma.” -Cristina Miranda Comments Related Topics:cutoff gradefaculty of pharmacyfeaturedPharmacy Licensure Examinations You may like Faculty of Pharmacy grieves over loss of biochemistry pillar UST, pumangatlo sa Agosto 2019 pharmacy boards; dalawang Tomasino, pasok sa top 10 UST, pumang-apat sa Agosto 2018 pharmacy boards News‘Duterte regime falls deaf to people’s cries’ –CSC, LSCs Central Student Council (CSC), along with the Local Student Councils (LSC), denounced President Duterte’s lack of COVID-19 response roadmap in his fifth and penultimate State of the Nation Address yesterday, July 27.

The councils demanded accountability from public officials such as Senator Kiko Pimentel, NCRPO chief Debold Sinas, and Malacañang spokesperson Harry Roque. They also called on lawmakers who created “rushed laws that impede fundamental humans rights and freedom of speech.”‘This is not how democracy works’ As Thomasians, the council expressed that they “could no longer sit idly” and watch the government compromise and abuse the country’s freedom. “As President Duterte falls deaf towards the cries of his people, his self-serving and personal interests prevail,” CSC said. According to them, this is not how democracy works. “[I]t is our utmost responsibility that we use our voice to speak for the silenced and oppressed,” the council said. “[W]e will embody the resistance and furbish our strength until it extends to the majority of our fellow Filipinos, the true cradle of our sovereignty,” the council added.

Manuel stressed that there is an urgent need for government action in addressing the problem with the accessibility of education.Department of Education records showed that six million students from last year failed to enroll for the incoming academic year 2020-2021. ‘Evil move’ Central Student Council president Robert Dominic Gonzales called on the youth to stay vigilant in this time of injustices. Gonzales said that the passing of the Anti-Terrorism Law is an “evil move” by the government to silence its critics. “We will still be haunted by the horrors that this administration has caused,” he said. Gonzales also lauded the sacrifice of the frontliners during the COVID-19 pandemic and encouraged the public to protect and support them. The webinar, “SONAgKAISAng Kabataan sa Paglaban,” was organized by the Youth Act Now Against Tyranny (YANAT).
