new blood

The results of the Aug 2012 physcial therapy and occupational therapy licensure exam is out! Congratulations to the 469 new PTRP's and 49 new OTRP's! Welcome to the other side. :)

I know countless educators beamed with pride as they read through the list. Thirty out of the 32 examinees fom UP CAMP passed. With a 93.75% passing rate, the university ranks among the top 3  top performing schools this year. But since, UP CAMP has less than fifty examinees, the college is not qualified for the award. This has always been a probem for the college. PT and OT are quota courses in the university which only take 50 freshmen each every year. No shiftees or transferees are accepted into these course and, realistically, not all of the 50 freshmen will make it to graduation. So we end up with less than 50 examinees every year. But I digress...

Congratualtions to all my students who passed the exam! Well done! Well done! You are now you are licensed to serve. Please use you license well. Remember the lessons you've learned inside and outside the classroom.

For those who did not make it this round, as cliche as it may sound, there is a time and a place for everything. Remember, a delay is not a denial. Cry for a while but do not wallow. One examination should not define you. Gather yourself together and prepare for the next exam. You have the college's support.

Congratulations also to Pamantasan ng Lungsod ng Maynila and to the University of Santo Tomas for being the top two performing schools this year, and to PLM again for bagging most of the spots in the top 10 examinees list.
