Cum laude graduate from Silliman University Institute of Rehabilitative Sciences ranked ninth in February 2018 Physical Therapy Licensure Examination.

Jhermi J. Borromeo, batch 2017, said she was supposed to take the exam last year, but she had some personal problems. She shared that it was already January when she started to focus to study.

“I know it was probably too late, it wasn’t a good thing. I could have done so much more, but it was when I gave my everything. That’s the reason why I was not expecting to make it this far,” she said.

According to the Professional Regulation Commission, 588 out of 1,017 passed the Physical Therapist Licensure Examination.

SU garnered a national passing rate of 90.91%, with 10 passers out of 11 takers. Nine from SU were first-timers and two were repeaters.
