DILIGENCE and grit helped Jude Philip Pozon Cebrecus in performing very well in the recently concluded September 2021 Physician Licensure Examination (PLE).
With a rating of 87.83 percent, the 25-year-old Cebrecus of Cebu Institute of Medicine (CIM) snagged the first spot along with Maria Inez Benedicto of West Visayas State University-La Paz.
Cebrecus said he was “genuinely” surprised by the results.
“The feeling still hasn’t fully sunk in yet. I really wasn’t expecting to top the board exams since we only had a very limited time allotted for intensive review and we had physical duties in the hospital early on in the year, so I wasn’t able to really review then,” Cebrecus told SunStar Cebu.
The other Cebu’s pride was Kirk Louie Umali Amandoron, also a graduate of CIM. He placed seventh (86.83 percent) in the PLE.
