Talk about having a great sense of humor. After its graduate Noel Malimban topped the recently released 2006 bar exams, UC-BCF is now reportedly adopting the battle cry “Hindi Ka Nag-iisa, Janet Abuel”. Janet, of course, is the first bar topnotcher from UC-BCF and Noel is the second.
Noel Malimban of the University of the Cordilleras topped the bar examinations held last year with a grade of 87.6% Malimban is the second graduate from the UC (formerly the Baguio Colleges Foundation) to top the bar exams (after Janet Abuel in 1998).
