Tiffany Grace Uy, the student with highest general weighted average grade (GWA) in the history of the University of the Philippines (UP) since World War II, adds another feather on her cap by being on the top 5 of the recently held Physician Licensure Exam.

In 2015, Uy had an almost perfect general weighted average of 1.004.

She finished her BS Biology course and pursued a medicine degree in UP where she graduated with honors again as Magna Cum Laude.

The UP alumna’s achievement becomes an instant trending topic once again after the results of the board exams were released.

Jomel Lapides from UP-Manila is this year’s medical board topnotcher.
