A Thomasian placed sixth in the Top 10 passers of the June 2021 licensure examinations for pharmacists posted on Wednesday, July 7.

Rosh Camille Belen led the new batch of Thomasian pharmacists as she placed sixth in the top 10 list of passers with a score of 92.17 percent — higher than previous Thomasians that topped the April 2021 exams with a score of 89.95 percent and August 2019 exams with a score of 90.57-percent.

“Ang surreal pa rin talaga up to now kasi ayun nga, maraming magagaling din na kasabay ko mag-exam… Ang ginawa ko na lang while waiting is pray, like I always do,” Belen said in an interview with TomasinoWeb as she recalled her reaction when she learned she placed sixth in the Top 10 licensure examinations.

This placed the University on the 10th spot  in the top performing school in the Pharmacist Licensure Examination

Additionally, Deanne Marizthel Madrio of Lyceum of the Philippines Batangas led the new batch of pharmacists with a score of 93.55-percent, followed by Abigail Xu of University of the Philippines Manila with a score of 93.45-percent.

The Professional Regulation Commission announced that 1,546 out of 2,337 passed the licensure examinations for pharmacists. 

Behind the victory

She shared how she struggled with inconsistency in following her review schedule. She also said she constantly doubted herself and felt pressured knowing that many students are taking the licensure examinations for pharmacists. 

“Problema ko rin yung sarili ko most of the time because I lack confidence ever since,” she added.

When it comes to studying, she used the Pomodoro technique — 25 minutes of studying and five-minute breaks — which helped her a lot in balancing her time.

She also focused on understanding concepts rather than just merely memorizing them because she believes that she can recall them better. 

Aside from that, Belen also said that she tested positive for COVID-19 on April 1 which added to her stress. Fortunately, the exams were cancelled on that same day. 

Dear future thomasians 

Despite the challenges, Belen expressed her gratitude towards her family and friends for the constant support as she was able to conquer her afflictions. 

Her advice for future Thomasians: “‘Huwag sumuko, even when the odds seem to be against you. Always pray to God for guidance and wisdom.”

The University recorded an 81.82-percent passing rate where 126 of 154 Thomasians made the mark.

Eight Thomasians qualified in the August 2021 architecture licensure examinations (ALE), registering a 100 percent passing rate, the Professional Regulation Commission (PRC) announced on Thursday, Sept. 2.

Previously, in the January 2020 ALE, the University was hailed as the top-performing school after it posted a passing rate of 85.18 percent, with 92 out of 108 takers passing the exam.

The national passing rate for this year was at 65.96 percent or 560 passers out of 849. This is an improvement from the previous year’s rate of 55.72 percent with 1,242 making the cut out of 2,229 takers.

The PRC did not declare any top-performing schools for this year’s architecture boards cycle, as no universities qualified with 20 or more takers.

The low turnout of examinees was due to the implementation of Modified Enhanced Community Quarantine in Metro Manila due to the surge of the contagious Delta variant.

The examination was held last August 27 and 29 at testing centers in Baguio, Cebu, Koronadal, Iloilo, Legaspi, Lucena, Pampanga, Tacloban, and Zamboanga.

Pumangalawa ang Unibersidad sa mechanical engineering board exams ngayong Agosto matapos itong makapagtala ng 83.33 porsyentong passing rate.

Ito ay mas mataas kumpara resulta ng nakaraang taon na 12.50 porsyento o dalawa sa 14 na Tomasinong kumuha ng pagsusulit ang pumasa.

Inanunsyo ng Professional Regulation Commission (PRC) noong Martes, ika-24 ng Agosto, ang mga pumasa sa pagsusulit kung saan lima sa anim na Tomasinong kumuha ng pagsusulit ang nakapasa. 

Nakakita rin ngayong taon ng 39.77 porsyentong passing rate kung saan 247 sa 621 indibidwal na kumuha ng pagsusulit ang nakapasa. Mas mataas ito kumpara sa nakaraang taon na may ​​38.45 porsyentong passing rate o 1,334 sa 3,469 na kumuha ng pagsusulit.

Ang mababang turn-out ng mga kumuha ng pagsusulit ay dulot ng pagkansela ng PRC sa pagsasagawa ng pagsusulit sa Metro Manila, Cebu, at Cagayan de Oro dala ng banta ng Delta variant. Sa halip, ito ay isinagawa lamang sa Baguio, Davao, Lucena, Rosales, Tacloban, at Zamboanga.

Ipinroklama rin ng PRC ang tanging mga institusyong nakakuha ng mas mataas sa 80 porsyento at may higit sa limang kalahok sa pagsusulit. 

Pitong bagong rehistradong mechanical engineer naman mula sa Saint Louis University sa Baguio City ang nanguna sa pagsusulit. 

Ang Unibersidad ay pumapangalawa sa Ateneo de Davao University at University of Mindanao – Davao City na parehong nakakuha ng 100 porsyentong passing rate.

Isang libong pocket Wi-Fi ang balak ipamahagi ng Unibersidad para sa mga Tomasinong mag-aaral na wala nakararanas ng mabagal na koneksyon sa internet para sa online classes.

Inilabas ng UST Central Student Council (CSC) noong Martes, ika-10 ng Agosto, ang survey para sa mga nais kumuha ng pocket wifi. Ang “Connectivity Assistance Program” ay naglalayong tulungan ang mga mag-aaral ng pamantasan na makalahok sa kanilang online classes.

Ang mga nais maging benepisyaryo ng programa ay kailangan lamang magbayad ng P300 bilang “reconnection fee.” Libre ang magiging buwanang subscription na may kasama ng 8GB na data na maaaring magamit sa loob ng lima hanggang pitong buwan o isang semestre.

Matatandaan noong simula ng lockdown at ng ikalawang semestre ng pagsasakatuparan ng “Enhanced Virtual Mode” (EVM) sa Unibersidad, unang inilunsad ng UST ang programa sa tulong ng mga telecommunications company na PLDT at Smart Communications. 

Higit 5,000 pocket Wi-Fi device ang ipinamahagi ng programa noon para sa mga estudyante at guro.
