Daughter fulfills her OFW mom’s only dream

by | TOP STORIES

All hard work paid off for this 48-year-old overseas Filipino worker (OFW) in Hong Kong as her youngest daughter passed the Certified Public Accountant (CPA) Board Exam on May 2017.

Over 900 OFWs take licensure exams

ABU DHABI: A total of 911 examinees have taken the Philippine Professional Regulations Commission’s (PRC) Special Professional Licensure Board Exams (SPLBE) held Sept. 14-16 this year at the Philippine Global School in Abu Dhabi, according to Atty. Ophelia Almenario, the Philippines’ labor attaché in UAE’s capital city. “This is good news for Filipinos here in the UAE. Ibig sabihin lang, aware na sila sa PRC licensure examination at malaking tulong sa kanila ito lalo sa mga prospect jobs nila,” Almenario said.

A list provided to The Filipino Times by Almenario showed that of the figure, 148 were architects, 98 were public accountants, 64 were civil engineers, two were dentists, and 24 were electronic engineers. Also, there were 23 electronic technicians, six environmental planners, 14 master plumbers, eight mechanical engineers, 307 nurses, 150 professional teachers (62 elementary, 88 secondary), 10 radiologic technologists, and 18 registered electrical engineers.

Moreover, there were 24 registered master electricians, nine respiratory therapists and six X-ray technicians. PRC successfully facilitated the event in collaboration with the Philippine Embassy and Philippine Overseas Labour Office in Abu Dhabi, Philippine Professional Organization (PPO) and 10 PPO-accredited Professional organizations in the UAE. No immediate announcement has been made as to when the results will be released, according to Almenario.


Visayas law schools dominate 2016 bar exams results

The November 2016 bar exam results became the talk of the town because for the first time ever, none of the top passers came from the “Big Three” law schools.

University of San Carlos in Cebu’s Karen Mae Calam leads this year’s batch of new lawyers. Other institutions that produced top bar passers are Siliman University, Andres Bonifacio College, University of San Agustin, Ateneo de Davao University, University of Batangas and Northwestern University.

For subject matter enthusiasts and experts, this is an unusual event in the bar exams history.

The previous rosters of top bar passers were dominated by bets from the University of the Philippines, Ateneo de Manila University and San Beda College.

According to an infographic released by Entrepreneur Philippines, UP stands as the top producer of topnotchers from 1913 to 2016 with 48 topnotchers, followed by Ateneo with 22 and San Beda with eight.

Over the period, Philippine Law School has five topnotchers, Far Eastern University and University of Manila has 4 apiece, and University of Santo Tomas has three.

Calam’s school only had one topnotcher before the Supreme Court released the 2016 results last earlier this month. But this year, University of San Carlos educated four members of the cream of the crop.

UP President Danilo Concepcion said the absence of topnotchers in the 2016 bar exams does not speak for the quality of the institution’s law school.

“The business of a law school is to teach law in the grand manner and to make great lawyers, it does not say to make Bar topnotchers,” Philippine Law Register quoted Concepcion as saying.
