UP Diliman grad tops February 2022 social worker licensure exam

A total of 533 out of 1,211 passed the February 2022 social worker licensure examination, the Professional Regulation Commission (PRC) announced on Thursday.

In a statement, the PRC revealed that Alain Matteo Ferrer Meneses, a graduate of University of the Philippines (UP) Diliman, topped the examination with a rating of 85.60%.

Jennifer Macalma Mones of Asian Social Institute grabbed the second spot with a rating of 84.80%, while John Ronel Lagan Salvador of Palawan State University-Puerto Princesa ranked third with a rating of 84.60.

Note that the letter Ñ is ordered after Z, so a person with the surname Veñegas, for example, is listed after a person with the surname Verdan.

The best-performing school was Caraga State University-Butuan City, with all 27 of its examinees passing. In second spot is Palawan State University-Puerto Princesa, with 12 of its 13 takers passing for a 92.31% success rate.

The exam was given by the Board for Social Workers in Manila, Baguio, Cagayan de Oro, Cebu, Davao, Iloilo, Legazpi, Lucena, Pagadian, Pampanga, Rosales, Tacloban, Tuguegarao and Zamboanga in February 2022. — Richa Noriega/BM, GMA News
