#BukasRecap: All About The 2021 February Licensure Exams

2021-06-22

Top Performing Schools x February 2021Boards

Next to getting their hard-earned diplomas, fresh graduates are either excited to join the workforce or nervously excited to take the boards and get their professional license. That is, if their chosen careers require licensure exams. Alin ka sa dalawa?

Kahit na maraming board exams ang postponed at rescheduled due to the pandemic, the Professional Regulation Commission (PRC), the agency that regulates and supervises our professional workforce, were able to administer three board exams in February 2021!

So whether you’re here for the results or interesado kang malaman ang top performing schools in your chosen field, here are the highlights you need to know!

University of the Philippines Los Banos (UPLB) aka the lone top performing school in the February 2021 Veterinarian Licensure Exam

Last February 2-4, 2021, UPLB’s College of Veterinary Medicine (CVM) garnered a 92.45% passing rate with 49 passers out of 53 takers in the Veterinarian Licensure Exam. Not to mention, galing din sa kanila ang 5 out of 10 topnotchers. Galing!
