A GRADUATE from Cebu Institute of Technology-University (CIT-U) made it to the top spot of the August 2017 Mining Licensure Examination.
The results were announced by the Professional Regulations Commission (PRC) on Monday, August 14.
Pompeii Nikolai Subingsubing of CIT-U ranked first with an average of 90.90 percent.
"I didn't even expect that I would pass, how much more top it? But that's what I prayed for everyday and that's what the Lord gave me," said Subingsubing, whose father is also an engineer.
He originally took up accounting in UP-Tacloban, but shifted to the Mining Engineering program in CIT-U when he did not pass the accountancy qualifying exam.
"I would like to become a successful responsible mining engineer and hopefully become a lawyer so I can Serve the People through mining," Said Subingsubing, who was grateful to all who supported him in his journey, especially his department chair (Osita Catipay), his parents, and God.
Philip Santi Morgia of the University of the Philippines-Diliman landed on the second spot with 89.80 percent, followed by Gelaine Chavez Cabria on the third spot with 89.55 percent.
