Wesleyan graduates clinched eight out of the Top 10 places in X-ray Technologist Licensure Examination given by the Professional Regulation Commission in July 2017.

Placing second was John Michael Gaya Viloria with 83.75%.

Wesleyan set an overall passing rate of 44.68%, with the passing rate of first timers at 45.45%.

Prof. Roberto DC. Yumul, program head of the Radiologic Technology Department, in a message to all his students, said they must always be humble despite their achievements.

“It is not a passport to be arrogant. Instead they should be thankful to God and their parents,” he said.

When asked about the secret of the department’s success, he bared that since the beginning, the students were trained to answer board exam type of questions in their classes, aside from professors focusing on mentoring each student.Ray

Yumul added that as long as he is in Wesleyan, he will continue to produce topnotchers.

Meanwhile, Wesleyan’s overall performance in the Radiologic Technologist Licensure Examination was 65.83%, with the first timers’ passing rate at 75.00%. ###
