Congratulations to Benigno Lingan Borja of St. Louis University (SLU) for making it to the top ten (8th place) in the geodetic engineering board examination held this month, September 2007. Borja obtained an 82.80% score.
How did the Cordillera schools do in this exam? Bad except for SLU. The schools’ passing rates are as follows:
Baguio Central University: 20% (4 out of 16)
Mt. Province State Polytechnic College – Tadian: 0 (0 out of 6)
St. Louis University: 65% (11 out of 17)
University of the Cordilleras: 30% (6 out of 20)
We didn’t realize that MPSPC offers engineering in its Tadian campus. Its administration should rethink its course offerings if this zero passing rate is the rule and not the exception. It is a waste of investment, for both the student and the state, if graduates cannot pass the qualifying test that would enable them to join the ranks of their desired profession.
