A short statistics.
Finally, my classmates have passed the so-called ECE board examinations and have managed to put the title, ‘Engineer’, to their names. It’s a good thing that they have reached their longed for dream.
Out of the 2,602 electronics engineering students who took the board examinations, 1,170 passed. This comprises 45% of all the students who took the said exam. This is one of the highest passing percentage in history. Back in our time, only about 24% were lucky to pass the board.

Mapua Institute of Technology dominated the Top 10. Eight out of the ten students who topped this year’s board exam came from their school. Of course, two out of these ten topnotchers are former schoolmates. The Top 4, Romel Barrera and the Top 10, John Bryan Chua came from Central Philippine University, my Alma Mater.
