June 17, 2018

Proving the University of the Cordilleras' Center of Excellence Status in Teacher Education, two UC students placed in the Top 10 of the 2018 Licensure Examinations for Teachers.

Arthur C. Soriano Jr. landed in the 5th Place in the Secondary Level with an average of 91.60%. This achievement adds to his title as a professional Civil Engineer with almost nine years of industry experience. Soriano obtained his degree in Civil Engineering here in UC in 2000.

Soriano said that while he never intended to become a teacher, his passion in photography helped him take his first step in teaching. He is now a mathematics teacher in a senior high school in Tarlac City.

On the other hand, Mardino M. Nuesca placed 9th in the Elementary Level with an average of 86.80%. Nuesca, who was a former student assistant-scholar of UC, said that his hardships in life propelled him to study harder than everyone else.

From his experience as a faculty checker, Nuesca said time management is the key for working students. He shared that while it was a struggle to juggle work and his studies, he always made time to review and work on his requirements between and after his duty.

"I am always reminded by our supervisor's words to do your work excellently and to do your work well. Walang tatamad-tamad," Nuesca added.

The eldest son of a housekeeper, Nuesca even had to stop for one semester due to financial problems but he believed that this should not stop him from succeeding in life.

With a total of 171 new Licensed Professional Teachers, UC garnered an 81.46% Passing Rate for first-takers in the Secondary Level and 71.79% in the Elementary Level.
