Overall, 96 out of 148 takers passed the Psychologist Licensure Examination given by PRC Board of Psychology.

Chemist and Chemical Technician board exam
Seven graduates from SU passed the October 2017 Chemist and Chemical Technician Licensure Examination with a total overall performance of 21.05%.

Three out of eight fresh graduates and one out of seven retakers from SU passed the licensure exam for chemists.
Jonathan Pa-a, Department of Chemistry head, said the batch was the first to adapt the so-called “Retention Policy.”
He said the policy allowed students who failed in one subject to advance to retake their failed subject and advance to higher subject as long as their QPA reach 2.0.

“…They can take the higher subject even if they already had difficulty with the lower subject. So, during the exam, I already anticipated that there will be three passers only,” Pa-a shared.

On the other hand, seven Sillimanians passed the board exam for chemical technician. The passers were not recent graduates but are already working in the field of Chemistry, Pa-a said.

Nationwide, 526 out of 1,195 passed the chemists licensure exam and 720 out of 845 takers passed the chemical technician licensure exam.
