2011 ID PUP Topnotchers: Carlos Mallari (5th placer) and Victor Garfin (3rd placer)
The College of Architecture and Fine Arts (CAFA) of PUP was delighted to welcome 9 newly licensed interior designers out of 12 who took the examinations at the Manuel L. Quezon University in Quiapo, Manila last October 4-5, 2011.
129 out of 248 takers were said to have passed the Interior Design Licensure Examinations given by the Professional Regulatory Commissions, rendering PUP’s passing rate of 75.00% higher than the national passing rate of 52.01%.
Out of the nine passers, CAFA was very proud to announce that the University claimed two places at the topnotch list namely, Victor Garfin (BSID batch 2007), who got the 3rd spot with a score of 88.95% and Carlos Mallari (BSID batch 2009) who grabbed the5th place with a score of 87.70%.
The College of Engineering, on the other hand, produced the Electronics and Communications Engineering Licensure Examination’s 4th placer Nixon Albert Ramos who had scored 92.10% held last October 2011.
The ECE department produced 91 newly qualified engineers out of the 148 takers for the year 2011, giving the University an edge of 47.97% passing rate against the 36.85% national passing rate for the examination.
In an interview with the two topnotchers from CAFA, they shared that an important technique one should use when preparing for the examination is that of having a great desire for the best result, “Aim high and pray.”
The two interior designers are very thankful and proud for being graduates of the university. “Without the help of the good curriculum and learning experiences from our university, we will never be confident that we will pass the examination,” the two said.
