Failed to graduate with honors turns top 5 in April 2024 Civil Engineering Board Exam

In many instances, it is not the will of man that prevails, but rather God's will, and perhaps even beyond what we expect.

Just like the story of Jonas Aldrin Wong Abad from the University of Santo Tomas, who ranked in the top 5 in the April 2024 Civil Engineers Licensure Examination.

He mentioned in his Facebook post on April 28 that he didn't graduate with honors, but he still clinched the top 5 in the board exam. Abad expressed his gratitude to all significant individuals and institutions that helped him achieve his dreams.

“I failed to graduate with honors, so I topped the board exam instead.”

“To my Day & Night Classroom family, and Solution ni Alex family, thank you for being a part of my review journey. To Gwyne, thank you for always answering my questions kapag may mga hindi ako nagegets. Thank you for making sure na natututunan ko rin yung mga naeencounter mo na concepts and problems na hindi naturo sa review center natin. You always believed that I would top the exam, and I am glad to prove you right.”

“To mom and dad who supported my decision to skip the November board exams so I could have more time to prepare, and to the rest of my family for providing unwavering support and encouragement. Your belief in me pushed me forward every step of the way.”

“To my review center Review Innovations, thank you for helping me prepare for the board exam. The dedicated instructors were instrumental in helping me achieve my goal.”

“Lastly, thank you God for answering my prayers and making this dream come true.”

“Rest po muna, magbakasyon with family and friends. After that mag-aayos na po ng cv (curriculum vitae) and hanap ng work.”

In an interview with The Summit Express, he mentioned that he graduated with a Bachelor of Science in Civil Engineering, specializing in Structural Engineering. He was a consistent dean’s lister and scholar. In 2019, he passed the qualifications for the Philippine Amusement and Gaming Corporation (PAGCOR) scholarship exam.

Abad also shared his plans now that he is a full-fledged engineer.

Congratulations, Engr. Jonas Aldrin W. Abad!
