16 UPV grads pass October 2022 Certified Public Accountant Licensure Examination (CPALE)

Sixteen UPV CM graduates made it to this year’s list of October Certified Public Accountant Licensure Examination (CPALE) Board passers per the results released by the Professional Regulation Commission (PRC) yesterday, October 26.

Bachelor of Science in Accountancy (BSA) graduates Alexis John Bandillon, Kirk John Villanueva, Shanine Franzel Dano, James Puentevella, Danielle Rojas, Karla Charina Indicar, Donna Amor De Castro, Charles Bryan Cartolina, Shania Shahane Mayol, Ma. Andrea Dignadice, Homer James Delos Santos, Angelus Tanate, Riza Agnes Narida, Gleah Rose Lim, Alisa Mae Albay, and Aisah Angeli Gobuyan are among the 1,772 (25.84%) passers, out of the 6,665 total examinees.

“Expect the unexpected. There are subjects (RFBT) that focused more on the minor topics (special laws) rather than the common topics that were discussed during undergrad. Also expect that the subjects that you think will be your “panghatak” (MAS) will turn out to be the opposite, “ said Kirk Villanueva, one of the UPV CM passers.

The same emphasis was made by another passer, Shanine Franzel Dano, who reiterated the importance of studying smart and understanding concepts and their applications in solving problems.

“Discipline and consistency is key since time is not on our side. I only had 2.5 months to prepare for the boards due to work commitments so I focused more on my weak subjects (AFAR, RFBT, and AUDIT). Make sure that you understood the concepts since the questions were mostly about application,” said Dano.

UPV’s 80% October passing rate is an increase from its 50% overall score in last May’s licensure exam.
