27 July 2011
The PLM College of Physical Therapy proved once again its lofty eminence as the consistent top PT school in the Philippines with its 100% passing rate, rank as the top performing PT school, and 5 topnotchers (including Top 1) in the July 2011 PT licensure exam -- a testament to its unbridled excellence. PLM dislodged anew the juggernaut of its usual fellow front-runners, namely the University of Santo Tomas (UST) and the University of the Philippines-Manila (UP-Manila).
PLM garnered the 1st, 3rd, 4th, 7th and 10th top places led by Michael Thomas G. Roldan with 86.80% rating, followed by Mary Grace D. Santos with 85.40%, Eunice S. Chin with 85.20%, Raymond C. Bartolome with 84.20%, and Ana Marie D. Narvaez with 83.75%.
UST took the 2nd, 5th, 6th and 9th places. At a passing rate of 86.08%, UST was the 2nd top performing school. UP-Manila landed at 91.18% passing rate, which is higher than that of UST, but registered less than 20 takers. This made UP-Manila ineligible to join the other top schools in the usual category where all three institutions figure prominently.
Under Board Resolution No. 3150 issued last 27 February 2009, cash incentives await those who garner 1st to 5th places in any board examination. This intends to inspire our current breed of scholars to emulate, if not surpass, the current bar of excellence exuded by their forebears.
