SLU graduates clinch 3 top ranks in the Geodetic Engineers board exam

MANILA, Philippines – In a university, the administration is already ecstatic even if only one makes it to the top 10 highest scorers in the board examination.

However, at Saint Louis University in Baguio City, it's not just one or two of their topnotchers, but three in the recently concluded Geodetic Engineers Licensure Examination (GELE), dominating the top 10.

10 days following the October 25-26 Geodetic Engineers Licensure Examination (GELE), the Professional Regulation Commission announced that 644 out of 1,377 examinees, equivalent to 46.77%, have successfully passed the licensure test.

Out of the 644 newly licensed geodetic engineers, 16 passers were recognized as the top-performing examinees.

SLU, consistent with its performance in various disciplines, lived up to expectations by producing three individuals who secured top positions.

Among them were Jimmerry V. Gadeja, ranking fourth with a score of 88.60%; James Lee I. Molino, securing the fifth position with an 88.00% rating; and Vienna Rose S. Baturi, achieving the eighth spot with an average of 86.40%.

Gadeja graduated as a magna cum laude while Molino and Baturi are cum laude.

“I was ecstatic the moment I saw my name in the list of topnotchers. At the same time, I felt like I was already at the finish line, for this was the dream I had to chase before entering college. It felt like a dream come true. SLU School of Engineering and Architecture (SEA) Geodetic Engineering helped me achieve this. The faculty had taught me GE concepts that are crucial and important, which I used when I took the board exam. Their passion and commitment to teaching us have inspired me to really excel in my studies and prepared me to enter the professional world,” Gadeja said.

“Actually, di pa rin nagsisink-in sa akin na I am one of the topnotchers, feel ko nananaginip lang ako. Pagkakita ko ng name ko. I was shocked, hindi ako makapaniwala ng sobra, di ko talaga ayon inaasahan. Sabi ko nalang after ng board exam "Lord, pumasa nalang po sana ako" dahil sa hirap nong exam. Hindi ko maexplain ung emotion ko that time, sobra yung saya sobra rin yung kaba,” Molino said.

Baturi expressed her gratitude to God and SLU and her emotions for being one of the topnotchers. “It is overwhelming! I didn't expect my name to be included in the list of top-notchers because the exam was difficult. During the long wait for the result, all I hoped was just to pass the GELE. But then, I'm thankful to God that my hard work paid off really well.”

SLU School of Engineering and Architecture generated a total of 22 new Louisian geodetic engineers, resulting in a passing rate of 78.57% for the university.

The October 2023 Geodetic Engineers Licensure Examination (GELE) took place at testing centers across the National Capital Region, Baguio, Butuan, Cebu, Davao, Koronadal, Legazpi, Lucena, Pagadian, Rosales, Tacloban, Tuguegarao, and Zamboanga.

“Congratulations to our outstanding geodetic engineering board exam topnotchers!”

“Your remarkable achievement showcases your dedication, expertise, and commitment to excellence, inspiring us all to continue pushing the boundaries of geodetic engineering,” SLU Association of Geodetic Engineering Students Official Facebook page shared.
