    Civil Engineer board exam topnotcher speaks up on his viral ‘basic’ remark

    MANILA, Philippines – Carl Jervin Rivera Magtira clinched the top spot in the November 2022 Civil Engineering (CE) Licensure Exams.

    The 26-years-old graduate from the University of the Philippines Los Baños (UPLB) went viral not just for his achievement but because of his calm and cool response about the exam.

    In a screenshot shared by his classmate, Richard Pabroquez, on Facebook, he revealed how he never doubted Magtira's performance in the CE exam.

    In the convo, Magtira described the exam as "basic" or easy. He later clarified that it was said in jest, although he admitted that he was confident he will pass the exam.

    Pabroquez also explained that Magtira is not arrogant or overconfident, as some netizens thought about the post. He explained, “Contrary to what my post may have implied, sobrang down to earth ni Carl. Hindi siya yung "show off" type of person. Siya yung tipong estudyante na tahimik lang sa klase pero magugulat ka na lang siya na pala yung topnotcher sa mga exams.”

    Pabroquez further explained that the response was nothing but a laughing moment for them. “Ganyan lagi yung banatan namin, nasanay lang siguro sa pagdodota," he said.

    "Maybe his 'basic' response is his way of keeping a positive mental attitude especially since the hardest part of the exam is the one scheduled for the next day,” he explained.

    Magtira also defended his response, saying that his confidence stems from his hard work in preparing for the exam. He said, “I only had the confidence to say that because I know to myself that I will pass the board.”

    “I admittedly had a hard time after the two-day exam, but I also had a feeling that I can make it to the top 10,” he added.

    Magtira topped the list of the 8,029 passers out of 20,407 in the November 2022 Civil Engineer Licensure Exam, as announced by the Professional Regulation Commission (PRC) on Tuesday, November 29.

    5. I wish may mga reporters na nagtanong sa kaniya tungkol sa day na 2 ng exam. Halos lahat ng kumuha ng exam ay nabulaga sa day 2 dahil ang mga tanong ay base sa 2014 pababa na mga codes. Even yung mga review centers like Esplana, Innovations etc ay hindi iniexpect na ibibigay yun dahil bagong codes na nga ang ginagamit. Kung consistent honor student sya and graduated with honors i can side with him ngunit para sabihin nya na basic..even in jest... parang nakakapagtaka.. I'm just saying..
